He's bullshitting. No icon means you don't have a data connection but can still make/receive calls. Happens with my iPhone 6 whenever I'm in an area like that.

Is it worth it to go the Jump On Demand route for a 64GB 6S+ if I plan on probably getting another iPhone next year? I don't mind just straight up paying off the phone right now but this seems cheaper in the end unless I'm missing something.

These monthly payments confuse me and I don't want to end up paying more money in the end.

The catch is that T-Mobile doesn't have as good coverage as AT&T and Verizon but it gets better every year. Just check out coverage maps before switching.

It's pretty much unusable on 2G unless you use a browser or app that heavily compresses data even then it doesn't work for me sometimes.

I'm trying to find the official brochure they showed with the breakdown. I don't think Tmobile mentioned it at their event.

You do get doubled tethering data, if that is a consolation.

My wife and I are on 2 lines unlimited everything for $100. Anyone know if we'll be able to keep that?

Not trying to argue, just curious: why would someone prefer this over running it on each individual device? Because then every time I Leave the house I'd have to remember to enable it on my devices.

Some VPNs have a cap on the number of allowed devices so that's one reason, I guess.

T-Mobile released details on getting an iPhone X: http://newsroom.t-mobile.com/news-and-blogs/iphone-x-t-mobile.htm

I got my iPhone 7 last year via JUMP. Do you guys think it would be financially worth it to get an X now that way and send my 7 back to them? Next years iPhones will probably have 600 MHz band support so Id update again then if that was the case.

In the short term you can roam on Sprint's network if your device is compatible. Longer-term T-Mobile gets Sprint's 2.5 GHz spectrum for rapid 5G deployment.


Anywhere Sprint has 800 MHz deployed where T-Mobile doesn't have 700 MHz. But I'm not sure how many of those areas there are

Is the roaming possible now or when its official?
