    I'm adding a line and my credit allows me to get an iPhone 6 without any down payment. Are there any other fees I'll be expected to pay up front? T-Mobile's customer service has given me mixed answers.

    If I remember how it works with T-mobile you basically will pay any downpayment they require if you get anything larger then the 16GB iPhone 6S and the sales tax on the whole device. So in your case if it is the 16GB 6S it would just be the sales tax on the cost of the device which is $649. You might be charged an upgrade fee if they do those but I forget if they do or not.


    Edit: this doesn't include the $50 + to actually add the line of service since it's new line which I forgot.

    I've added a line just a few months ago and got shipped a SIM card without having to pay any $50 fee. You sure?

    You won't have to pay anything outside the cost of the new sim if you don't have one already though they have the power to waive that for you. You will have to pay for any upgraded storage up front though. This is for the jump on demand plans as that is all I have experience with.

    Sales tax on the full device cost upfront for sure.

    If it's qualified for zero down, it's just the sales tax. SIM will come in box so no extra charge.

    If you're the best credit class and upgrading using Jump On Demand, you will only pay the SIM starter ($15). There are no taxes paid on JOD. An 18 month term with a balloon payment towards the end.

    Tax is only due if you're doing EIP or JUMP (24 month term). Also, there is no deposit if your credit falls within the best categories. Otherwise, it's $50, $30, $10 for first, second, and each subsequent lines respectively.

    I work for T-Mobile. Let me know if you've got any other questions.

    Oh. I'm still on the old JUMP! plan. I guess it varies greatly from JoD.
