[RANT] I feel this is a T-Mobile issue, as their computer systems are as reliable as Windows ME was (that is, not at all)... but what was supposed to be a $250 transaction actually was four figures. My mom + I switched to T-Mo in July from AT&T. We have flawless credit. T-Mobile rates us at their highest credit tier and we have the highest dollar amount they give for EIP and Jump - $2,000. Sent my mother to get my iPhone 6s Plus (128 GB) from the Apple Store, as I didn't have time to get out of classes at 3:00, drive 100 miles round trip and still get to work by 5:00. Told her to buy it under JUMP, and if that wasn't possible, then get it under EIP. Should only cost $199.99 upfront (because it's 128GB) plus taxes. I get a phone call from her, and she says "Something is wrong. Here's the Apple Store guy." Apple Store guy comes on the phone, says their computer is saying that I am ineligible for Jump AND EIP at the Apple Store, I must go to a T-Mobile store. We all know T-Mobile doesn't even stock anything on launch but 16 GB. That wouldn't work. I have a phone number to an executive rep. at HQ in Seattle, I call them. They don't see any issues, but they double my credit limit -- now I have $4,000 in available credit -- and we make sure everything else is okay. My account is perfect. Balance due? I have a credit. I've never had a late bill. I have PLENTY of financing available. They (T-Mobile) can't tell me what the problem is, and for me to "wait until next week for an answer when people are back in the office." At this point, I'm about ready to cry. I just want my phone, it was never this much of a struggle with AT&T Next. I tell the Apple Store guy, and he says my two choices are: 1.) Wait until stock isn't constrained (October), and get one from T-Mobile 2.) Pay full pricing - $949.99 + taxes. I kind of need the 6s as it supports Band 12 - I get terrible service in my town with my 6 because it doesn't support Band 12.... and if I'm paying for cell service, I want to be able to use it. So I'm $1,017.80 poorer now. Doesn't even include AppleCare. Just an iPhone, a case, and taxes. I understand I didn't have to spend that money, but I made the decision to because I would like to be able to use the cell service I pay $140 a month for. Maybe T-Mobile will pay me my $1000 back and manually add my iPhone under EIP, and I can pay it back monthly. I'd rather do that, as I'd rather put that money towards bills.... I feel that is going to be a "no." Sigh.
