T-Mobile has announced that it will finally begin selling the iPhone 5 on Friday, April 12th.

T-Mobile announced today that qualifying customers can get an iPhone 5 for $99.99 down, plus monthly payments. T-Mobile is the only major U.S. wireless company to offer iPhone 5 with no annual service contract plus unlimited talk, text and Web on a screaming-fast nationwide 4G network. And because there are no annual contracts, customers make the decision when to upgrade their devices — not the carrier.



The iPhone 5 will be supported on T-Mobiles new 4G LTE network which today was launched in seven major metropolitan areas, including Baltimore; Houston; Kansas City; Las Vegas; Phoenix; San Jose, Calif.; and Washington, D.C.

T-Mobile’s 4G LTE network is expected to reach 100 million people by mid-year and 200 million nationwide by the end of 2013. The company’s 4G HSPA+ network reaches 225 million people in 229 metropolitan areas.

T-Mobile is offering iPhone 5 with just one rate plan. T-Mobile’s new Simple Choice Plan starts with a base rate of $50 per month for unlimited talk, text and Web with 500MB of 4G data.3 Consumers can add 2GB of 4G data for $10 per month per line or get unlimited 4G data for an additional $20 per month per line. Customers can add a second phone line for $30 per month, and each additional line is just $10 per month. There are no caps and no overages.

Additional Benefits
In addition to the Simple Choice Plan’s reasonable terms and powerful nationwide network, iPhone 5 customers can take advantage of several free premium benefits from T-Mobile, including:
● HD Voice - delivering nationwide crystal-clear high-definition calling and significantly reduced background noise. T-Mobile is the only U.S. carrier offering nationwide HD Voice for iPhone 5.
● T-Mobile Smartphone Mobile HotSpot for on-the-go tethering Internet access. Through Simple Choice, T-Mobile offers an additional 500MB of 4G data for tethering, enabling customers to tether from their iPads, Macs and other devices.
● Talk and surf at the same time — without limits. Through T-Mobile's Simple Choice Plan, customers can opt for totally unlimited 4G data on a nationwide network, something no other major U.S. wireless company offers for iPhone 5.

Pricing & Availability
iPhone 5 will be available for qualifying customers with T-Mobile’s Simple Choice Plan for $99.99 down and $20 per month for 24 months. Qualifying customers can get iPhone 4S through the Simple Choice Plan for $69.99 down and $20 per month for 24 months. iPhone 4 will be available for qualifying customers through the Simple Choice Plan for $14.99 down and $15 per month for 24 months. Financing is available on approval of credit online and in participating locations. iPhone 4S and iPhone 4 will be available in select markets. iPhone 5 will be available nationwide on Friday, April 12, at T-Mobile retail stores and through select dealers and national retail stores, as well as online at http://www.T-Mobile.com.

Just got 4g LTE in Corona by 91 and 15. It is fast and signal seems to be stronger. Can use phone inside warehouse when I couldn't use it before. I have the SGS4.

I actually did quite a bit of research on these cell phone trade in programs, and www.smartphonecashin.com is definitely the highest paying site. They are also very straightforward and easy to use.

If you think about it, it's pretty good idea. You pay around $600 for device and the monthly subscription. If you end up wanting to "cancel" your subscription you don't pay that Crazy $200-300 to break it. If you think about after 2 years of use you can easily resell the i

Congrats!!! Great deal!! I like the news! Now people can get any phones without overpaying thousands of dollars to AT&T , Verizon etc. You pay to this carriers much more . After paying off the actual price of your phone ( in two years)you still continue paying the same price. Not so with TMobile. After paying off your phone you start paying $20 less.

I'm sure when the iPhone from Tmobile drops, the towers will activate with the 1900MHz frequency allowing anything that uses 1900MHz for 4G to get 3G or 4G data on Tmobile. Those using iPhone 5s right now on Tmobile will only get edge in most areas even if someone next to you with an iPhone 4 is getting 3G, the reason your iPhone 5 is still on edge is only because your not in a 4G area, the iPhone 4S and 5 are 4G devices and push for 4G and do not utilize 3G normally. But if you already have an att iPhone 5, don't bother getting a Tmobile iPhone 5, its the same device.
