  • 1 Million Unlocked iPhones On T-Mobile

    According to a report by 9 to 5 Mac, in a meeting with T-Mobile spokespeople ahead of the NYC Pepcom event, they were told there are nearly 1 million iPhones operating on T-Mobile's network in the U.S.

    That is a lot of unlocked phones. While the majority of the unlocked iPhones are pre- iPhone 4 micro-sim models, the spokesman for T-Mobile did say a number of users had "taken the scissors" to their larger sim cards. The micro-sims that the iPhone 4 uses are smaller than traditional sim cards, but only in the size of the paper/cardboard housing the sim-cards employ. It is possible, and fairly easy to modify a standard 3G sim card so that it can fit in a micro-sim tray.

    Still, 1 million iPhones on T-Mobile's network seems odd considering the iPhone does not support T-Mobile's 3G network, and Apple only officially started selling unlocked iPhones in the last few weeks in the states.

    How many ModMyi users have an unlocked iPhone running on T-Mobile's network?

      Add me. I had a iPhone, a 3gs, and now a 4 on T-mobile and haven't been on a contract in years. I love having un-limited everything. Sometimes I wonder if Edge sucks, but mostly I am pretty happy. The 4 is a factory unlocked one. I hold out hope that the iPhone will come to T-mobile soon and will be able to use the full capabilities then.

      My (ex)husband has had an iphone and 3gs on T-mobile too at my urging. He switched from Verizon for them and seems sort of annoyed that they have the 4 now, but must be forgetting all the time between during which he enjoyed his Apple phones.

      I went to Canada for my 4 in February just as Verizon was offering them, and I had to consider carefully going or switching. :S Still not sure what was better. Now it seems they'll unlock phones here at full price too, I missed out on white (either way,) and paid more, but...

      Best phone to have on tmobile prepaid. Hands down. Paid $150 for my 3GS on craigslist, jb'd it then unlocked it on iPad BB. Would like GPS, but I don't travel far and mostly use wifi. Spend about $100 a year on prepaid and have an iPhone I can impress people with.
