I’ve been somewhat skeptical about T-Mobile’s UNcarrier initiative for a while but I really started to warm up to it Wednesday when it announced its JUMP program.

For $10 a month, you can upgrade your smartphone once every six months for any reason, whether your phone is broken, whether it’s buggy or whether you just don’t like it anymore. Even better, when you upgrade to a new device, T-Mobile wipes out the remaining balance that you have on the last device you bought through the carrier.
