iPhone 5 Also Coming To T-Mobile USA?

Samsung Versus Apple

Yesterday, WSJ claimed that according to their sources, Sprint will offer Apple’s iPhone 5 when it is launched later this year, along with AT&T and Verizon.

MacTrast has just reported that one of their sources has tipped them that even T-Mobile USA – the fourth largest carrier in the U.S will also be offering Apple’s iPhone 5.

This means that with the iPhone 5 launch, Apple will offer iPhone on all four major carriers. AT&T was the exclusive iPhone carrier in the U.S until earlier this year, but lost its exclusivity when Apple launched the CDMA iPhone 4 for Verizon’s CDMA work.

MacTrast reports:

Sprint Nextel Corp. will begin selling the iPhone 5 in mid-October, people familiar with the matter said, closing a huge hole in the No. 3 U.S. carrier’s lineup and giving Apple Inc. another channel for selling its popular phone. 

The timing, however, indicates Apple’s new iPhone will hit the market later than expected and too late to contribute to sales in the company’s fiscal fourth quarter, which ends in September. Most observers had expected the device to arrive next month.

Ever since AT&T acquired T-Mobile USA, it has been widely speculated that it will get Apple’s iPhone 5 this year. Some reports have also claimed that Apple has been testing iPhone on T-Mobile USA’s network.

Couple of months back, T-Mobile had revealed that it already has over one million iPhone users on its network, even though iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS etc. work only on T-Mobile’s slow EDGE network as it is not compatible with 3G network. But if Apple does end up launching iPhone 5 on T-Mobile USA, it is quite likely that it will be compatible with its 3G network.

Will you switch to T-Mobile USA or Sprint from AT&T or Verizon if they really end up getting iPhone 5? Let us know in the comments.

    You could be also moving out of your shit hole country and come live here in Khazakstan where we have number provider in whole world, al-jazadia. You get all time high speed of 28.8bps, dirty pictures of your wives will be appearing on your iPhones 5 after only a 2 minute download. I like iPhones, I make sexytime to them but the screens is not seemings to be waterproof.

  • Sesuj

  • Matt

    Good point sesuj… you’d think they’d be up on it. They have enough advertising on this site to make you think they had to pay a fleet of people to keep it up to date.

    I have been waiting for this moment for a LONG LONG time now. I can’t wait until I see iPhone on T-Mobile and/or Sprint Network. They are so much reasonable and the service is pretty damn good.

    I would definitely switch to T-Mobile first if they get the iPhone, if not, then I will be switching to Sprint in a heartbeat.

    It’s about time Apple did this. Props and Kudos.

  • BenitoCamelas

    Is true ATT is acquiring TMobile, but in the meantime you can lock one of those pretty plans TMobile is offering now and for sure it won’t be touched at least for two years… in the other hand is the customer service… in that case there’s nothing to do.

  • lasha
