Phones 4 U JUMP offers phone upgrade freedom

Phones 4 u will be giving contract customers the freedom to upgrade when they like, they can change their mobile phones as often as every six months. This means they do not have to wait the long dreary 18 to 24 months like they have been to upgrade.

Welcome to the new Phones 4U JUMP (Just Upgrade My Phone) launch, this is a new type of contract that offers flexibility where no upfront charges will occur, all customers need to do is initially pay an average added monthly cost of £2.99 to £3.99, these prices are dependent on the original JUMP contract chosen.

Even though JUMP has been tested since May of last year, the roll out will go national today, and will be offered in all Phones 4u’s 586+ stores, Phones 4u online and Phones 4u telesales by May 2012. Basically in a nutshell, customers can have the freedom of the latest smartphones that release. Many customers get highly frustrated that they have to wait a long time before they can upgrade their phone to a new one like the iPhone 4S for example, well JUMP allows users to do this at an earlier date.

Here is an example being on JUMP:

    Wouldn’t it be simply better to go for a 12 month contract OR to take a sim only deal and buy a phone separate. You can sell the phone in market for a much higher price (than 100)and buy the latest set by adding some money.

    This should be much cheaper after 2-3 years when u compare the the adding premium on JUMP every 6 or 12 month + a roll over 24 month contract every time u renew.
