iPhone 5 on T-Mobile? Not This Year
If you were holding on to hope that the iPhone would come to T-Mobile in the united States this fall, it appears that your bubble may soon be bursting.
According to information received internally from T-Mobile, TmoNews reports that T-Mobile USA Chief Marketing Officer Cole Brodman has confirmed that the carrier will, in fact, not deliver the iPhone 5 to customers this year.
"Our business is working very hard to improve performance over the last couple of years and we've had some great success," Brodman said, according to the report, noting that "new products and value plans are fueling customer response."
"Brodman expects the excitement to continue into the holiday season as T-Mobile introduces two new smartphones," the report adds, noting that Brodman himself confirmed point blank that "we are not going to get the iPhone 5 this year."
Naturally, Brodman is not ruling out the very likely prospect of the iPhone coming to T-Mobile at some point in the future, possibly even next year. Of course, the arrival of the iPhone on T-Mobile would have likely been facilitated much faster had AT&T's proposed acquisition for the carrier been swiftly authorized by regulators. But with the acquisition stymied for the time being, so too are any immediate plans to bring the iPhone 5 to T-Mobile.

They may not be getting the iPhone 5 this year, but what about the 4s? here's to hoping!
Also, maybe the iPhone 4s(?) will support tmobile's 3G frequency.. That would be wonderful. I don't even have tmobile, but I feel for y'all that do =]

No big deal... Let's just hope the next iPhone has 2G and 3G bands capable to run on all Carriers around the world!

You may want to take a look at their current plans if you aren't afraid of signing a contract with them. I was in a similar situation, but I just signed on for unlimited talk/text/2G of 3G data (can't use it, but still) and unlimited 2G data for $100. I also added two additional lines with unlimited text and 500 minutes (no data), for just $5/ea line. I use one for my home phone.
You have a great deal, but I just wanted to mention this one to you though.
I don't work for T-Mobile; but I have enjoyed their service for over 8 years.

It's not about which is better and which sucks, they all have their benefits. Like Verizon vs Sprint, Sprint probably does not throttle speeds as much as VZW does. Verizon possibly might have better call quality or coverage (depends on area perhaps). AT&T is fast but limited data, etc. Those are just examples that there are advantages of one company over another, it's personal preference.
