T-Mobile iPhone 5: The Good & Bad News

By  | 

If you have been waiting for the arrival of the Apple iPhone 5 on T-Mobile then the wait could be over much sooner than you would have thought. However if you wanted the handset with contract then you are met with bad news as T-Mobile are putting an end to subsidies.

T-Mobile would not give in to demands from Apple as Sprint and other carriers in the US did.

The Apple iPhone 5 is the best-selling of devices over in the US and at the moment all big carriers have it apart from T-Mobile. Some people have said that T-Mobile will not have the iPhone even when version 6 comes out. However T-Mobile will indeed be offering it without subsidies. Sprint on the other hand decided to give in and they won’t see any profits before 2015.

T-Mobile have been leaning on the Samsung Galaxy S3 and some people have been asking why T-Mobile have not given in to Apple as they have good cover and plans that are reasonable. But do we need the iPhone on T-Mobile? If you have the unlocked version of the handset you can take it to the carrier on one of their pre-paid plans.

Well the Apple iPhone 5 will be making its way to T-Mobile and originally it was thought that it would arrive within 3 to 4 months. Now it seems it will be even sooner. T-Mobile did not give in to Apple and they will offer the handset without subsidies. So you can’t expect to practically get the device for nothing with a two year contract. Rather than pay out $200 you will have to find $650 for the handset if you want it from T-Mobile.

So the good news is that the T-Mobile iPhone 5 is coming faster than previously expected. The bad news is that it will cost you more.

Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Nintendo Wii, PC, iPhone and Android games keep Berke busy at work all day. Honestly though we’re not sure why we’re paying him as it should be the other way around.
