T-Mobile iPhone 5 Release Date Drops Inside 4 Week Window

By  | 

If you are on T-Mobile and you have been waiting to get your hands on the Apple iPhone 5 with them, then you will not have too much longer to wait. The CEO of T-Mobile said that the device was making its way to stores faster than what was at first thought.

He said that T-Mobile would have the Apple iPhone 5 within the next 3 to 4 months; this was first thought to be 6 to 9 months. So perhaps you will be able to go into a store near you and get the device during the spring.

Along with T-Mobile having the Apple iPhone 5 for the first time, T-Mobile will also be putting an end to subsidised handsets. Therefore if you want the Apple iPhone 5 with T-Mobile you would have to fork out the full retail price, which is around $649 for the 16GB version.

T-Mobile has 1.9 million Apple iPhone users at the moment and they are confident that the changes to plans will in no way have an effect on the Apple iPhone 5 sales. They say that it could draw people in as they would have monthly payments that are lower. The CEO is hoping that the new plans will bring in around 5% more subscribers.

By going with the new plan with T-Mobile you will not be locked into a plan over two years and as Apple typically reveal a new Apple iPhone each year, fans of Apple may welcome the contract-free plans. Another thing in favour is that the Apple iPhone has a high resale value.
