Anyone wanting to get their hands on the Apple iPhone 5 with T-Mobile on a contract will be sorely disappointed come this summer as the pink carrier will be going a different route than other US carriers with offering the latest Apple phone.
T-Mobile is to offer the iPhone, however they won’t give in to the heavy demands of Apple like Sprint and other carriers did.
One of the biggest selling handsets in the US is the Apple iPhone 5 and right now it is available with all carriers in the US apart from T-Mobile. Some people even went as far as to say that when the Apple iPhone 6 comes out T-Mobile would be the only carrier not to offer it. Of course this could change if Apple could have it without subsidies. This of course did not happen with Sprint and some say that it will not happen at T-Mobile. Sprint eventually gave in to the demands of Apple and now they have to wait for 2015 before they will make any profit from the sales of the Apple iPhone.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 has been the handset that T-Mobile has relied upon. Some people have wondered why the carrier would not give in and have the iPhone as their plans are reasonable and they do have good coverage. But then again is the Apple iPhone 5 needed on T-Mobile? Anyone owning an unlocked iPhone can take it to the carrier and get a pre-paid plan with T-Mobile.
Well there has been some good news from the CEO of T-Mobile recently and he said that they would have the Apple iPhone 5 within the next 3 to 4 months. However they have not given in to Apple’s demands. T-Mobile will get the iPhone 5 when the carrier does away with subsidies. This means that you won’t have the Apple iPhone 5 practically given to you, as you would with a contract of two years and at $200. Rather you will have to pay out the full price for a T-Mobile iPhone 5, which starts at around $650.
