Recently, T-Mobile has situated itself in the mobile carrier market as the "uncarrier," offering the iPhone 5 without a contract. But according to Verizon Communications CEO Lowell McAdam, his company is willing to take a hard look at what mobile consumers want from a carrier, and shifting to a no-contract setup is a very real possibility.
It's been four long years since T-Mobile has seen subscriber growth in the United States, but the fourth-place carrier is finally getting a little good news now that the first quarter of 2013 is behind it.
Are you a trailblazer who's been enjoying T-Mobile service on an unlocked iPhone all along? If so, your patience may be rewarded later this week as the carrier pushes out an update adding official support for the magenta network at long last. And if you're a Thunderbolt fan, we've got a doozy of an update for you, with a truly powerhouse docking station on the way from Sonnet. But enough of our yakkin', let's get on with it!
There are still plenty of little details coming out about the iPhone 5 arriving on T-Mobile next month -- in particular, you'll want to read our Wednesday recap if you're looking to buy a higher-capacity model before you head to a T-Mo retail store on April 12. But we'll kick things off with a neat Flickr gallery that jumps back nearly 17 years, to that fateful night when Steve Jobs came back to then-Apple Computer...
Apple made the dreams of many iPhone users come true on Tuesday with the announcement of the iPhone 5 coming to T-Mobile USA on April 12, and the carrier is even making it cheaper to get one as part of its new "UNcarrier" initiative. But even if you could care less about T-Mobile's new iPhone, there was plenty of other stuff to talk about yesterday, and here's a quick recap to get you up to speed...
T-Mobile will finally offer the iPhone -- officially -- next month. The carrier is the last major U.S. network to finally offer Apple's smartphones, but today's announcement is more than another product being added to a company's stable. Instead, T-Mobile will sell the iPhone 5 under a unique payment system.
T-Mobile is holding its event tomorrow, but details are already leaking out all over the place. While there's been some mention of the company's new "UNcarrier" pricing plans, a source now says T-Mobile will finally offer the iPhone directly, instead of requiring unlocked models. And moreover, your T-Mobile iPhone can take advantage of a 4G LTE network starting tomorrow.
