If you’re on a two-year contract with your carrier and intend to purchase the iPhone 6 or the iPhone 6 Plus, it might be a good idea to check your upgrade eligibility to determine the price you’ll have to pay for the device.
It was reported early in July that Apple retail locations would start selling prepaid, as well as month-to-month T-Mobile plans, along with iPhones during the purchase. While just a rumor then, it has now been confirmed that if you want to sign up for T-Mobile, you can do it from inside an Apple retail store.
If you ever wanted to just try out a wireless carrier, maybe because you’re thinking of switching but you haven’t heard altogether positive things, or for whatever other reason there might be, T-Mobile has you covered in a new move to let potential customers test out the network with a particular device.
T-Mobile shook up the US carrier industry last year with its “Uncarrier” plans that eliminated two-year contracts to make way for contract-free plans with much cheaper rentals. The carrier is now gearing up to further build upon on the Uncarrier approach, in a press event in Los Angeles on the 18th of June.
T-Mobile has been teasing “Uncarrier 4.0,” its next move to disrupt the US wireless industry, with a tagline that says “This one you aren’t gonna believe.” TMoNews claims that as part of Uncarrier 4.0, T-Mobile could pay for a customer’s early termination fee if he or she moves from AT&T, Verizon to T-Mobile.
On Tuesday, T-Mobile announced its earnings for the third quarter of 2013. The carrier added 648,000 net subscribers in the quarter and sold 5.6 million smartphones, which included sales through T-Mobile and its prepaid brand MetroPCS. Though it didn’t provide specific numbers, it’s is believed that the carrier sold about 540,000 iPhones in the quarter.
