T-Mobile iPhone 5 Available By Summer With A Twist

By  | 

If you are a fan of the Apple iPhone 5 and are with T-Mobile you will be over the moon to hear about the comments that were made by the CEO of T-Mobile last week at CES. The CEO has said that the Apple iPhone will be available on T-Mobile quicker than planned.

T-Mobile iPhone 5 release date sooner than expected

He said that instead of it being 6 to 9 months, the Apple iPhone would be available on T-Mobile in the next 3 to 4 months. This would mean you could get it by the summer.

However there is a twist – at the same time as the introduction of the iPhone, T-Mobile are putting a stop to subsidies.

Currently T-Mobile has around 1.9 million Apple iPhone owners on their network. The carrier has confidence that by stopping subsidies they will not affect sales of the device. They believe that it could draw in fans of the Apple iPhone to T-Mobile thanks to their monthly fees being lower. T-Mobile is hoping that their subscribers will increase by around 5%.

T-Mobile will no longer have users locked into two year contracts and this is great news as Apple generally releases a new version each year and the iPhone has a high resale value.
