First, T-Mobile took the wraps off a new program called JUMP!(TM). According to the carrier, the new program aims to allow customers to upgrade their phones when they want, up to twice a year as soon as six months from enrollment.
"We say two years is just too long to wait. Today, we're changing all that with the launch of JUMP!," says T-Mobile CEO and President, John Legere. That is not all, though, as the company also announced a special program that allows families to grab four phone lines with unlimited talk, text and web, up to 500MB of high-speed data for only $100 per month, with no credit check or annual service contract required.
Apparently T-Mobile wants to save families from the headache of being denied from having premium family-plan rates because of less-than-premium credit. With the new program in place, families can enjoy up to four Simple Choice Plan lines.
Lastly, T-Mobile boasted that its 4GLTEnetwork has reached 157 million people across the U.S., acheiving its previous goal of reaching 100 million people by the end of the year.

About the Geek Mind
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
