T-Mobile's Moon Shot? Might as well Jump. The magenta-minded carrier has taken the wraps off of Jump (plus exclamation mark, if you choose), a system that lets customers upgrade their handsets up to twice a year -- a plan clearly targeted toward gadget obsessives (and the fickle). As CEO John Legere put it -- it can stand for either "Just Upgrade My Phone" or "John Upgrade My Phone." Also included in the $10 (per phone, plus applicable taxes and other fees) a month deal is a total protection plan that helps out with malfunctions, damage, thefts and loss of handsets. Those interested are able to enroll as soon as six months after joining up. After that time, subscribers can trade in a working, eligible phone to a T-Mobile store. Equipment Installment Program fees will be eliminated, and they'll be able to buy a new phone for a new customer upfront price.
As for availability? According to the fine print on the press release below (after the, wait for it, jump) the plan (which kicks in on Sunday), "may not be available in all locations." Surely your local T-Mobile representative has more information on that front. More info below, along with some ads featuring none other than SNL's Bill Hader.
