    Hey guys,
    So I'm kinda curious about using my Jump on demand to a 7 Plus on T-Mobile and am trying to find a better way to track down a phone than calling every store in the D.C. Area.
    Apparently I can't do Apple because they can't process T-Mobile upgrades, and I really don't have $849 to drop on a new phone outright.
    It's my 25th birthday tomorrow and I really just wanted to do something nice for myself. Anybody know of a better way to track down a phone than calling around?

    You could use the Apple upgrade program. It'll be a lot easier to find a phone that way.

    Wow so A+ to T-mobile support. The guy called around to 15 stores in the D.C. Area manually and nobody had any in stock. He did say Apple could process EIP payments though and maybe I could check that out. Anybody done that through Apple?

    I'm interested to know the details of this as well. My local Apple store has the iPhone7+ I want in stock, but I didn't think they could do EIP JUMP so I didn't even try. I ordered through T-Mobile with an estimated shipping date of 11/28 - 12/19. I would love to get it faster if at possible considering I need to turn my Note7 in.

    Been to two Apple stores when looking for a 7+ and neither of'em could process a TMobile Update ( EIP or JUMP inclduing JOD )

    So here's some shade. The T-Mobile rep I talked to said they had the capability but it's a matter of finding an Apple rep that knows how to do it. They said it's on that iPad they carry around to do the upgrades though.
