Apple Confirms T-Mobile USA Will Be Carrying Its Products In 2013

T-Mobile has been rumoured to start offering the iPhone in US for quite some time. In fact, T-Mobile was among the first to carry the Nano SIMs back in September, just before the official iPhone 5 launch, further fuelling speculations of soon becoming Apple’s iPhone 5 carrier partner in US. Today, Apple representative Natalie Harrison confirmed the news, following the official press release from T-Mobile.

T-Mobile USA has entered into an agreement with Apple to bring products to market together next year.

In the coming year, T-Mobile USA will continue to reinforce its market presence with additions to its rate plan and product portfolio, including Apple products. “Following on from the preceding steps such as the spectrum swap with Verizon, the towers deal with Crown Castle and the transaction with MetroPCS that we have announced, we have now added the final piece to the jigsaw to boost the competitiveness of T-Mobile USA sustainably,” said René Obermann.

T-Mobile representative Michelle Taylerson told The Loop that additional details will be made available at a later date.

    Will this mean Mobilcity and Wind will be able to carry iphones in Canada?

    the fact they had nano sims was no real indication of whether or not they were going to support the iphone officially… tmo has always been passive aggressive towards apple by trying to lure unlocked users to their service (they had the micro sim for the 4/4S for over a year now)

    the introduction/modification to their hspa+ bands is also an another example

    acquiring metropcs was the clincher

    being said, good for tmobile, their data plans, although throttled heavily once you’ve gone over your cap, are pretty spectacular

    oh and itll be fun to actually list what phone im using on my prepaid account, but thats just me being unreasonably anally retentive

    And here I thought this was a Canada-based website.

  • crosseyed_mofo

    no because tmo was proactive in adjusting and acquiring bands to make them compatible

    mobilcity, wind and videotron would have to do the same and theres nothing indicating that they have any plans to do so

    for now

  • Only if an AWS compatible iPhone is introduced by Apple.

  • it sure as hell is! 🙂

    hold the phone man

    “T-Mobile CEO John Legere “is implying that the carrier will launch an as-yet-unannounced iPhone model.”

  • crosseyed_mofo

    travel to the states with an unlocked phone and youll be glad sites like this cover american telcos
