T-Mobile iPhone 5 Release Date: Double Time!

By  | 

T-Mobile will be getting the iPhone for the first time this year and now it seems as though they will get it quicker than what was first thought. This is unusual with tech as if anything things tend to get pushed back and delayed, so it is a refreshing change.

Initially T-Mobile said that the Apple iPhone 5 would be with them in 6 to 9 months. They have now changed this time frame and it should be 3 to 4 months. So if you are waiting for the device you should be able to get it twice as fast which makes its around summer time.

T-Mobile is also making an additional change when they stop their subsidised plans.

Currently there are around 1.9 million people with T-Mobile who have an Apple iPhone but the CEO said that he thinks the change of plans will not affect their sales in any way. The plans will be cheaper each month and as such this could draw in around 5% more subscribers.

If you purchase the Apple iPhone 5 from T-Mobile you won’t be locked into a contract of two years. This is great news as Apple is known to reveal a new device every year. There is another point in favour of the iPhone and that is that is comes with a great resale value.

T-Mobile staff has received an email warning of a blackout period. This is to take place over the 18th March to 14Th April and in the past when other carriers have had a blackout it means that you can expect the release of an iPhone. With this in mind we can assume that the Apple iPhone 5 will be arriving at some point during this timeframe.
