    Default iPhone 4 Coming to T-Mobile in UK



    The iPhone 4 is coming to the UK via T-Mobile. This evening, there is great buzz surrounding the announcement, which for now, simply foretells of the smartphone's arrival on T-Mobile. At present, the UK T-Mobile site is only asking visitors to "register their interest" by filling out a form. If you do, T-Mobile will keep you posted about pre-ordering, prices, plans, and "everything else you need."

    In recent weeks, some mobile industry analysts predicted that T-Mobile would be the next US carrier to offer service for the iPhone. Kaufman Bros analyst Shaw Wu observed following the conclusion of WWDC 2010: “While the general consensus is around Verizon (which we believe will happen eventually) we continue to believe that T-Mobile USA is the most likely candidate given its use of similar cellular technology (to) AT&T.”

    while there are rampant rumors that this announcement from T-Mobile also includes coverage in the US, it does not. Of course, there is no telling if the carrier will soon make an announcement regarding iPhone 4 service in the states, but there is no confirmation of yet as to that potential eventuality. In the UK, however, the iPhone 4 is expanding by leaps and bounds and finding new homes though new carriers. 02 is now touting on its home page that the iPhone 4 will also be available through the British carrier.

    That would be great to see it come to T-Mo in the States.

    I think that I would switch when my AT&T contract ran out if they did this state side. Now the early termination fees really make since.

    I would love to have an iPhone on T-Mobiles 3G. EDGE just doesn't cut it with T-Mobile.

    To bad T-Mobile USA picked a 3G frequency that nobody else in the world uses. Much like CDMA; only really used in the USA. Which means Apple would have to make seperate hardware to just USA phone.


    LTE will bring all the cell providers to a more universal standing for phone makers.

    This would be super cool for one who has tmobile in hopes of getting a UK device. Would that work?? I had met a woman from the Philippines on line for the iPhone and she was talking about people who have the iPhone over there and it has 2 simcard placements. I don't know how valid this is.

    Does T-Mobile UK use a different 3G frequency than they use in the US?

    That sucks, oh well maybe someday T-Mobile USA will get it but I'm sure that won't be for a while.
