5 Comments to Verizon Edge vs. T-Mobile Jump (comparison)

  1. jack the ripper

    The Tmobile plan includes for the 10 jump fee. Lookout premium membership. thats another 5 dollars. Plus the cost of the plans on verizon would be double so the actual cost of the phone per month is mute. also even by your own comparison. with t-mobile having a down payment of 146 and 21 per month. for 6 months the actual cost of that phone would be 275 (roughly) with verizon it would 325

  2. I wanted to point something with all this. I was looking into the a few months back and came to a funky conclusion. So, under old plans the cost of a subsidized phone had always been built into the cost of a plan which is why you paid so little for a new phone but had to sign up for a 2-year contract. The kicker was even after the 2 year period was up you STILL paid the included subsidized cost of the phone, your plan didn’t drop in cost.

    If you look at the cost of plans comparing T-Mobile to Verizon that include subsidized phones they are the same but T-Mobiles new plan automatically reduces the cost of a plan once the phone is paid off.

    Verizons new plans are still the same cost as plans with subsidized phones costs built in BUT their new Edge program adds fees ON TOP of that. Essentially if you participate in Verizons Edge program you are paying 200% the cost of the phone.

  3. Your stating that Verizon can only be updated after 12 months is also incorrect. You can upgrade after 6 months if 50% of the phone is paid off.
