Apple and T-Mobile Begin Taking iPhone 5 Pre-Orders
Apple and T-Mobile have both begun pre-orders for the iPhone 5 as previously announced. The launch date for the iPhone 5 is scheduled for April 12th which is coming up just one week from today. If you’re eager to hop on the bandwagon, now’s your chance!
As many of you probably already know, T-Mobile is the last of the four major carriers in the United States to start selling the iPhone 5 without a cellular service contract. Although the carrier is still working to expand its LTE network as quick as possible, some customers may not mind the service renovations since their monthly bill may be a bit cheaper by going through T-Mobile as a carrier. When Apple's phone hits store shelves on April 12, T-Mobile subscribers will be able to use the device to access the carriers new LTE network in seven U.S. markets which include: Kansas City, Kan., Houston, Tex., Las Vegas, Nev., Phoenix, Ariz., San Jose, Calif., and Washington D.C.
For those of you who didn't know, the iPhone 5's T-Mobile debut lines up with the company's "Uncarrier" campaign, which drops phone subsidies in exchange for lower monthly rates. With the new plan, a 16 GB iPhone 5 will be sold for a $99 front fee with 20 additional payemnts of $20 covering the remaining cost of the phone.
