iPhone Cable Appears In T-Mobile Stores, Why?

David’s Update: I’ve amended the text below since at least a few took some of the wording out of context. This cable absolutely does NOT prove T-Mobile is getting the iPhone, especially tomorrow.  You shouldn’t return a recently purchased device waiting for this and you shouldn’t start camping outside your local T-Mobile.  The arrival of this cable is peculiar and the likely solution is that T-Mobile produced a 99 cent cable it can sell for $14.99.  There are plenty of unlocked iPhone users which T-Mobile supports wholeheartedly so why not try and sell them something too?

Stop.  Breathe.  Calm down.  Let’s not let this get out of hand, but, yes, you did read that title correctly.  It appears that some T-Mobile stores are receiving stock of these iPhone and iPod sync and charging cables, but what does it mean (Don’t click this if you already know where it links to)?  Seriously though, what do we have going on here?  The first answer is easy, and we have tons of rumors that point in that directionbut it is less likely because we can’t imagine the very first leak that could prove it is a data cable.  I’ll pose another 1000% more likely possibility, just to make you think.  T-Mobile has said before that they support unlocked iPhone’s on their network, and a number of customers use them.  So maybe T-Mobile just stocking a product to help those customers and make some more profit.  I’ll let you decide.  Leave your thoughts in the comments!

    What!?! that’s all we need. Apple fanboys…

    • Ramiro

      I have no clue why no one has mentioned this, but the Samsung Galaxy Tab will be coming to T-Mobile and the Galaxy Tab has a 30-pin dock connector (which are found on all i-devices)…I know it still doesn’t explain the “iPod & iPhone” writing on the boxes…

    • SteveT

      Wow really?

  • XfooYen

    The box isn’t an Apple branded, so I wouldn’t get all panicky over this. You know when Apple and TMo make it official, those accessories will have Jobs Juice all over ’em. It’ll be obvious.

    • David, Managing Editor

      Well your argument doesn’t really make sense considering AT&T sells plenty of iPhone accessories in AT&T packaging. Either way, I think this is something that should be taken at face value, it’s just a cable.

      • Farhan

        Although it may be possible TMobile wants to make some $ on accessories, it would make more sense for them to provide accessories for phones that they sell or are planning to sell soon. I am leaning towards an iPhone for TMobile.

      • Cmon David!! Ive been waiting nearly 30 minutes just for a reply to get posted.

      • XfooYen

        Oh. I’ve never even seen an AT&T store. I thought they were a myth too :P
        My bad.

      • XfooYen

        Brookstone sells cables for iPhone but they don’t sell phones, so go figure.

      • I hate Tmonews (just for tonight [B..(] though) for taking such a long time to post my replies!its been over an hour and my reply isnt up yet!

        (may you delete this post when you get to it?)

      • MattB

        @XfooYen – Brookstone argument is moot. Brookstone doesn’t sell any phones at all. Their main revenue stream comes from other products. T-Mobile is in the business of selling phones, so any extra product will revolve ‘around’ phones (specifically the ones they sell). Name any other non-agent cell phone store that carries accessories for a device they don’t carry on their network and then your argument will hold merit.

      • remixfa

        concidering how many people i have seen during work that have unlocked iphones, it does make sence. i doubt the iphone is comming to tmobile before it goes to verizon guys so just breathe and relax.

    • 2Noob4U

      Remember all those accessories pouring in for the Nexus One? Yeah Ooo and remember all they hype that TMo was getting the Nexus One? How’d that turn out?

      • 2FR35H

        T-Mobile did have the Nexus One it just wasn’t sold in stores. It was sold by google via T-Mo contract, note I said “T-Mo Contract” then note “T-Mo”.

  • JAKE

    wow could it be hell must of froze over

  • 2FR35H

    Oh…. My.

    I’m not surprised, why wouldn’t apple want to be on the fastest network? haha

    So good thing we may be getting iPhone ‘4G’

  • Ben Tolmachoff

    I’d put a better watermark on that image. Something more over the cable itself so when sites like Engadget get ahold of this, TmoNews will be right there.

    My two cents.

    Also: bogged down network, here we come.

  • trickinit

    I just don’t see T-Mobile picking up the iPhone after straight up attacking it in the new 4G commercial. Maybe a T-Mo version of the iPad is on the way?

    • fiveizzo

      If I remember correctly, verizon also attacked the iphone. Anyone remember the land of the misfit toys commercial.

    • MattB

      I agree, but for a different reason… I don’t really see the ad as attacking the iPhone, but attacking AT&T. I do, however, think that if T-Mobile has a new business relationship to carry ANY apple product, a parody ad mocking Apple wouldn’t have happened. So, I’d have to think it’d mean no iPad either. That being said, why the cables? No way does T-Mobile start carrying cables as a means of ‘extra revenue’ with so many other big thinks looming around this 4th quarter. Definitely strange.

      • maybe we will get the Iphone 4GS!

        way better than the MT4g



        doesn’t that make sense?

        the Iphone4G exclusively from tmobile?

        since At&t is just the Iphone4 without a G!

    • if you recall they didn’t really knock the iphone they knocked the network it was on…

    • Kickstar13

      They didn’t attack Apple, but pointed out the fact that the iPhone 4 is being offered only on AT&T’s crappy network. The iPhone 4 man is a sharply dressed young guy who is carrying an overweight, bald, drunk businessman on his back (AT&T).

  • Andrew Gomez

    This is bizzaro world.

  • CT

    Spoke with a tmobile sales rep in Sams Club over the weekend and she confirmed that in a few weeks Tmobile will be getting the iPhone

  • Eddie Android

    Aw great, crapple products.

  • Francisco C.

    Could this be from T-Mobile UK ???

    • trickinit

      I doubt it.. that’s definitely T-Mo USA packaging.

      • trickinit

        Also, if you look closely, you can see a myTouch accessory in the bottom left of the picture.

    • 2FR35H

      T-Mobile UK already has the iPhone and why would David post something about T-Mobile UK? he never does, this blog is predominantly about T-Mobile USA

    • Ktwist

      Got these a few days ago in our store too, just trying to give the people that come from europe with there UK iphones a charger is my guess? Im proud of what we have to offer in our stores and me personally would only want the iphone on our network for the extra commission it would bring to us. Other than that, I would recommend android or bb all day over iphone. It’s a great phone dont get me wrong, just not my cup of tea.

  • trickinit

    Carrying iPhone accessories doesn’t necessarily mean they’ll carry the iPhone. T-Mobile still carries NexusOne accessories, but we all know that dream never came true.

    • Farhan

      Your reasoning is incorrect. The Nexus One was available on TMobile so whether Google sells it directly to TMobile users does not change the fact that TMobile would carry Nexus One accessories in the store for their customers.

      Although the iPhone can be unlocked and used on the TMobile network, it is not official available for TMobile customers. Why would they carry the accessories for a phone they don’t sell or support?

      • trickinit

        So it seems as if my reasoning is perfectly logical then. T-Mobile never sold, or directly made profited off of the sales of the N1. It was always sold by a third-party (Google). But because it was being used on T-Mobile’s network, they chose to provide accessories for customers who happened to own the device. The same can go for the iPhone. It is sold by a different company, however there are many T-Mobile customers using in on their network. So why not provide accessories for them? I actually work in a T-Mo retail store, and you’d be surprised how many customers actually come in looking for support and accessories for the iPhone.

        As I said in my previous comment, carrying the accessories does not necessarily mean T-Mobile will carry the phone. This is 100% accurate.

      • @trickinit


        Then wouldn’t that be considered first party seller?

        through tmobile its a second party,

        and through wirefly like resellers its called third party seller.

      • Farhan

        trickinit: You are not understanding what I’m trying to say. To say it another way, the Nexus One was a phone made by Google FOR TMobile. Remember, the phone was made for TMobile and not another carrier like the iPhone was.

        This is why even though the Nexus One was not sold in stores, since Google wanted to try a different marketing strategy, accessories would be made available in store, since Google only wanted to sell the Nexus One online.

        Like I said before, the iPhone was not made by Apple for TMoble. It was made for AT&T. Sure, you can unlock and use it on TMobile, but it was not “officially” made for TMobile. This is why I believe that iPhone accessories wouldn’t be sold by TMobile unless they were expecting to sell the phone as well. Or, like the Nexus One, Apple was planning on selling TMobile iPhones through Apple.com

        Now, I didn’t actually try to say I was a 100% correct, but your Nexus One comparison is incorrect in my opinion since the Nexus One was being sold for the TMobile network albeit not in stores.

    • 2FR35H

      T-Mobile carried the Nexus One just not in retail stores so that point you are trying to make is moot.

      • trickinit

        T-Mobile never carried the NexusOne. T-Mobile partnered with Google to make it available to customers, but it was never possible to buy the N1 through T-Mo, only directly through Google. Even if you went online, did and upgrade, and ordered an N1, it shipped from Google. It never entered into T-Mobile’s inventory.

      • 2FR35H

        Ahh but realize T-MObile had a part in the equation of the device itself hence which would make it a T-Mobile device. Also sold via contract on t-mobile.

        So what is your point? because either way I am still right in that your example is a failed one because t-mobile partnered with google for the device to happen and was available via t-mobile contract.

    • annon

      That’s exactly what I said! lol.

  • Vibrant Guy

    I think it might be that there are tons of people on our network with them, so T-Mobile is deciding to make some cash there as well. On another note…F**K the iphone. ANDROID ALL DAY!!!!!!!!!!

  • Wilma Flintstone

    Wait, wasn’t Tmo just picking on what the iPhone doesn’t do that the MyTouch 4G does? Why would that crap show up? Sounds planted by one of the iPhone Secret Agents with a plan to destroy Tmo from the inside. Think, Trojan Horse if you will. Man your battle stations Maggy Soldiers!!! Sleep in shifts!!! Someone make some Hot Cocoa!!! With Marshmallows!!!

    • 2FR35H

      Are you high by any chance? or were you when you wrote that?

      • Wilma Flintstone

        YES! High and mighty. Woo!!!

      • 2FR35H


    • SteveT

      The reason they’re picking on it is because ATT’s network can’t or won’t handle it (face time video conferencing). Obviously TMob is confident theirs can. If so, genius marketing run-up to launch. if not, collect underpants. :)

  • djdarkknight96

    It’s for the iphone running android…….NOT! Just a stupid cable! Iphone can stay away from magenta! We love android!

  • foo

    maybe it’s for the iPad?

    • AreYouSerious?

      That’s what I was wondering, but don’t know enough about the iPad to know if it uses the same connector.

  • J

    “Oh my god…oh my god! Double Rainbow! It’s a double rainbow!”….I was peeing my pants!

  • annon

    I honestly don’t think this is a big deal. T-Mobile has carried accessories for devices they don’t “officially” carry on the corporate stores. The perfect example was the Nexus One. They didn’t officially carry or support the device for that matter but they carried screen protectors etc. This is Q4; the most important quarter for the company. Why would they release the myTouch 4G at the same time as the iPhone and have that type of marketing campaign?

    • 2FR35H

      Nexus One was a T-Mobile official product, what on earth are you talking about? The Nexus One WAS A T-MOBILE PRODUCT!

      Unless you can come up with a better example of t-mobile supporting products they don’t carry then I must tell you that you don’t have a point.

      • annon

        N1 was not a T-Mo product. Sorry. It was sold only by Google and now by Brightstar for registered developers. Yes you could’ve gotten a discount on it under specific guidelines but you still got the phone from Google. T-Mobile did not support the device, troubleshoot the device, or exchange the device. All of this is done by either Google or HTC.

        People like you create confusion about what is officially supported and what is not. Sorry.

      • 2FR35H


        Yes it was a T-Mobile Product sold by google it was bought WITH A T-MOBILE CONTRACT!

      • Vibrant Addict

        Umm… there was still a Nexus One exclusive for T-Mobile. In store or not, it was still a device EXCLUSIVE for T-Mobile of which some individuals are still under contract with T-Mobile for it.

      • Eddie Android

        @2FR35H The N1 is not an official tmobile phone as it doesnt carry tmobile branding on the phone or box. tmobile has no control over the N1

      • @eddie android

        nor does HTC have any control over the N1 even though it was exclusively made by HTC(until now the cycle has been broken but thats totally different if you consider the first process of the N1 to be able to have). Even I tried to so desperately get a hold of a nexus one but I couldnt afford th 500 nor changing to an individual plan.

      • Farhan

        @ annon, Google was employing a different distribution strategy with the N1. Which was to sell it directly to consumers and provide support for it while the carriers sold accessories.

        Apart from the distribution strategy, if it was not a TMobile phone, how could you sign a contract with TMobile and get the N1? You can’t do that with an iPhone.

  • JuiceMan

    I don’t know… I work for T-Mobile and picked up a T-Mobile branded mini sim card the other day. Yeah, the one designed specifically for the iPhone 4. Kinda threw me off like wait are we getting the iPhone, or is this a way to keep customers from destroying their sim cards to fit into an iPhone 4? Just sayin… what’s going on? Lol

  • Tito!

    So, I thought about. I don’t mind, I welcome controversary(:

    Here’s a hint:
    T-Mobile’s new 4G ad says, “Oh, this is the ol’ AT&T Network.”
    Could that be code for, I’m going for T-Mobile 4G? :)
    I don’t mind. Long as it is indeed, iPhone 4 & capable of Full 4G speeds. (I just love calling it that now! HSPA+ has officially retired.)
    Anyway, so yeah. Long as it don’t cripple us
    I’m not much of an iPhone fan.
    But I’ll gladly sport a T-Mobile iPhone(:
    I own a phone of everything.
    Android! ♥
    Now, I just need WP7 & another Bberry
    My former bberry and winmo have been lost. Oh weel(:
    Bring on the PlayBook, before the Holidays while your at it T-Mo. :)

  • Ace

    iphone not com in to tmobile it’s goin to verizon I hope u all know that

      Nobody knows that. So quit trying to be smart
      Nothing, has indeed been announced(:
      So thank you Fortune Teller lol.

    • 2FR35H

      I hope you know that what you are spewing is nothing more than a rumour but why on earth should we care about verizon? and who is to say iPhone would go only to verizon? I mean come on use your head son. With the way manufacturers are going its definitely going for a non exclusive society. iPhone is already on T-Mobile in Europe and other carriers as well.

      • annon

        Dude stop replying to people like you know everything. I know someone that works for Verizon and he also confirmed that the iPhone will be released on their network. T-Mobile Germany is also different from T-Mobile USA.

      • 2FR35H


        Dude stop replying to me replying to you like YOU know what you are talking about. I know what i’m talking about but you have only given one example of your point of which is failed being that Nexus One was a T-Mobile product even though sold by google it was coupled with a T-Mobile Contract for $179.

      • 2FR35H

        and another thing apparently my point went over your head I merely used t-mobile Europe as an example to say the iPhone isn’t guaranteed to be an exclusive because the iPhone is europe IS NOT AN EXCLUSIVE device and that manufacturers are heading to a non-exclusive society.

  • fam

    wow should i wait for the iphone? nah mytouch 4g baby

    • JB6464


  • Jay

    I’d still take the MyTouch 4G over the Iphone 4 any day.

  • Joelsky

    Still hoping for an IPhone on Tmobile. pls..pls..pls. Merry merry Christmas!

    • JB6464

      It will,maybe not for Christmas though.

  • chris

    Well, it’s obvious that if T-Mobile is selling an iPhone cable, they might as well be selling the damn thing. It wouldn’t make sense to carry an accessory just because they felt like it, they’re getting the iPhone for sure, no doubt. The real question here is when will it come and which generation of the iPhone T-Mobile will get.

    • 2FR35H

      Seeing as it is arriving in stores now I would say sometime between Thanksgiving Christmas and New Years.

  • William

    Im in the camp of accessories for a supported product and nothing more.

  • MisterMegatron

    ummm…i seriously doubt T-mobile would spend valuable money in their marketing budget dissing all the things iPhone can’t do…n then turn around n tell ppl y they should buy a T-mobile iphone…i think that would confuse the average person that doesn’t know a whole lot about smartphones other than they r cool…and unless it’s a hspa+ iphone (that would probably directly compete with the Mytouch 4G, if iphone 4 or Vibrant if iphone 3gs)…i don’t see the point

    • annon

      THANK YOU! DAVID PRINTS A PICTURE OF A CABLE AND PEOPLE ARE ALREADY CHASING A GHOST! For some people there’s no convincing. This is the first time T-Mo’s marketing campaign has been so outspoken about a specific device from the competition like the iPhone in a long time. Why would they turn around and take away the spotlight from MT4G? I can already see some of these people calling 611, “When can I order my iPhone?”

      • 2FR35H

        Who said the iPhone would take spotlight away from any device?

    • foo

      well verizon knocked on the iphone w/ the droid does campaign and it looks like they’ll get the iphone soon doesnt seem to hurt them

    • MisterMegatron

      lol i actually should’ve said G2 instead of the Vibrant…but u get the point

    • hi

      you gotta show me this commercial you’re talking about where tmobile knocks the iPhone….where’s it at?!

      I’ve seen the one where they knock AT&T….which, if anything, would show why they should carry the iPhone due to their superior network

  • Ramiro

    I have no clue why no one has mentioned this, but the Samsung Galaxy Tab will be coming to T-Mobile and the Galaxy Tab has a 30-pin dock connector (which are found on all i-devices)…I know it still doesn’t explain the “iPod & iPhone” writing on the boxes…

  • james

    t-mobile will be getting the white iphone 4 exclusive ha!

  • Vibrant Addict

    Could this really be true? Will it finally be possible to get lovely 3G on T-Mobile with an iPhone???

    Well I hope it is true, Magenta could use all those extra subscribers for more profit. I mean really, given Verizon’s high prices vs. T-Mobile’s affordable rates and ‘4G’, people would obviously choose Magenta in a heartbeat. I just hope the upcoming ads are mostly AT&T directed rather than iPhone for future rumored product’s sake.

  • If the NEXUS s/2 doesnt come out, I will drop the mytouch 4g for the Iphone, only if it runs on tmo’s HSPA+ NETWORK

  • redman12

    Just a thought, since Apple and ATT exclusivity is ending.. Verizon will get the Iphone but will it be exclusive to just Verizon itself? or is Apple planning to get locked on one carrier again :O

    • I dont think that after all those years of friendship at&t or Apple will just throw it out just like nothing happened, apple is doing it to gain more power over people(since they already have enough money for “scamming” people to buy computers that cost the most at 3000 on some models), its not that much about the money.

      Just getting ready for the Iphone 5.0

  • Matt Hatter

    Personally, now mind you I’m not a business major, if I were Steve Jobs I would capitalize as much as I could on the popularity of the iPhone and make it available on all carriers. It’s almost time for the new model to be coming out (even if it is still 6-8 mos away. Why not make it a CDMA/GSM device that operates on all frequencies and sell it at all the Apple stores unlocked and in the carrier’s stores? Personally I would saturate the market as much as I could while I could. That’s what Google did when their exclusivity expired with us. The only carrier who doesn’t carry a wide variety of Android phones is AT&T and that is because of all their eggs in the iPhone basket. Hell, even Boost Mobile and Virgin will be selling Android! Ride the pony till it dies, Steve, then get another one. You’ve been doing it since the Apple IIc.

    • Rilesman

      Apple’s iPhone has infiltrated the consumer market but the next market is the Enterprise. Both Apple and Google have been modifying their code to take on RIM so if Apple wants to beat Google, they will have to release the iPhone on all carriers. Period.

  • Eddie Android

    @2FR35H N1 is not an official tmobile phone as it doesnt carry tmobile branding on the phone or box.

    • annon

      Thank you! Finally.

    • 2FR35H

      Its a T-Mobile product for the sole reason that you could buy with a T-MOBILE CONTRACT! It may not of had the branding on the device itself but for the sole fact that you could buy it with a t-mobile contract makes it a T-MOBILE Product.

      • Eddie Android

        My friend bought a Nokia N900 on tmobile contract, does that make it an official tmobile phone?

      • Eddie Android

        plus i got a Sony Ericsson K800i (no way in hell a tmobile phone) in 07 on a two year tmo contract

      • 2FR35H

        If its not T-mobile device how on earth are you buying it w/ a t-mobile contract?

        also N900 is supported by our network if I’m not mistaken.

      • annon

        @Eddie There’s just no reasoning with some people. You can try to convince someone that 2+2 is 4 but if they don’t want to believe it its not going to happen.

        @too fresh
        before the vibrant came out, i had an iphone 3g on a t-mobile usa contract plan. by your logic, the 2 year old iphone 3g (the iphone that is 2 generations before the current iphone) is a t-mobile contract phone. before that, i used a nokia 6555 (an at&t exclusive phone) on t-mobile’s network. by that logic, an at&t exclusive phone is a t-mobile contract phone.

      • @ ANNON

        What the hell you talking bout?

        2+2 = Emc2-dD !!!!!!!!!!

      • MattB

        @ctk But you did not get the price of those phones subsidized by signing a contract. The Nexus was available at a discounted price with contract. Big difference.

      • 2FR35H


        I was merely debunking your reasoning.


        now did you buy the iPhone WITH a T-Mobile contract or unlocked because that would not be synonymous with what I am saying if you bought it unlocked and then used it on the network. I am not saying that simply using the device on the network makes it official t-mo I am saying that THE PHONE, WHEN YOU BUY IT, AND IT COMES WITH A T-MOBILE CONTRACT AND EVEN MORE SO THAT THE DEVICE IS CAPABLE WITH THE NETWORK’S 3G then that is what makes it T-mobile device. To my knowledge you can not buy a non t-mobile phone with a t-mobile contract. Unlocking your phone you bought is not doing the same thing as a matter of fact, T-Mobile was a specific partner of the Google Nexus One of which makes it a t-mo device.

        T-Mobile even has a forum for the Nexus One.

      • DREAMA


  • Matt Hatter

    Looking at the picture again, it’s a cable for the iPhone and iPod. Maybe T-Mobile will be selling the iPod, hmmmm? Now that Android has UMA calling and supports wifi hotspot perhaps the new iPod will have those features and capabilities and we will sell it on a 2 year contract!

    Oh, hey, there goes another red herring!

  • Phace

    or you could look @ it this way:
    Tmobile has NEVER officially attacked another Phone brand maker including the Apple, and i dont think they would start doing it now either! I think what you all saw with the commercial was an attempt by Tmobile to show you how they can go after AT&T and show everyone who has the superior network by product placing a future device(iPhone) carried by both AT&T and Tmobile and having the iPhone state that AT&T’s network is “Getting kind of heavy”. I think its brilliantly placed and do indeed think we will see an iPhone coming to Tmobile!

    As an owner of a business i would NEVER sell accessories of a device that i do not plan to carry! I dont even know why its even a discussion really if you think about it logically!

  • souggie

    folks, settle down and think about this:
    If TMO has the iphone, that strikes a blow to ATT and anyone else getting it in the sense that TMO turned an enemy device into a friend bby going at it hard. TMO would surge by having the iphone AND mytouch 4g. Trust and believe that this is strategic, turn your enemy into your friend, i like it……imagine 2 powerhouse devices with hspa+ and video chat on 2nd generation processors, one runnin android and the other iOS. IMO, tmobile is easily munber two carrier if they carry the iphone

    • MattB

      Hmmm… top Android device, top Windows7, top Apple. would make for an interesting fourth quarter.

  • Or it could just be a tmobile UK package mixed up in The USA’s load of packages, forcing them to sell it

        No the question was the iPhone will not NOT be on t-mobile.

  • TherealG

    I was in a Tmobile store today in Las Vegas (buying the mytouch 4g) and saw those cables. I thought it was interesting that they would sell something for the Iphone but didnt think twice about it. Later I was chatting with the manager there and she was telling me that something big is going to happen at Tmobile on the 20th BUT corporate wasnt telling anyone what was going on.

    So who knows maybe they were actually able to keep it on the down low. Really though why would anyone want an Iphone when we have the mytouch 4g…..

    • 2FR35H

      20th? of November? December? January?

      • TherealG

        They told me the 20th of Nov. that “Something big is going to happen”

    And how do I know that this is not for people out side of the sates like the UK. Until I see Steve Jobs coming on stage and saying iPhone for everyone there such a little chance that T-Mobile USA is geting an iPhone before Verizon.

      Really I don’t believe t-mobile or usa gets that many europeans coming our way. So I view that as HIGHLY unlikely, especially when there are hundreds of other places they can get the docking cables, Wal-Mart especially.

      Why on earth would verizon be first of all companies?

      Face it, the most logical answer here is that T-Mobile is getting some variation of the iPhone/iPod.

  • Hello

  • ctk

    t-mobile has a special tech support section that deals only with iphones. this is nothing but supplying an accessory for a phone that is used on t-mobile’s network. its a smart move. why force t-mobile customers to go to the at&t store to get their iphone accessories when they can now go to the t-mo store?

    and yes i know you can get iphone accessories at places like best buy and meijer, but there are some people who don’t think like that.

  • Why WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY!!!!!!! (F*** You by Cee-lo Green)

  • threetee14

    here’s my two cents…

    i know Steve Jobs likes to keep his product line simple… so my thinking is that this whole “Verizon will carry iphone early 2011” has a lot to do with the t-mobile iPhone, in that Apple will release a ‘refreshed’ iphone 4 (with no antenna issues) with adding a CDMA antenna to the current iphone 4, and will also add in AWS 3G compatibility… making the iPhone 4 compatible throughout universally any carrier in the world. that would fall in line with apple’s simplicity philosophy and would continue to make the iphone non-carrier-branded because the owner could theoretically take the phone any carrier that person wants to.

    also, if apple is allowed to finally have the iphone on another carrier… why stop at just verizon? apple really wants to attack android head-on and what better way than to release the iphone on an android-dominated carrier t-mobile?

    • 2FR35H

      Honestly the day the iPhone stops becoming an exclusive is the day iPhone is no longer popular. The way I see it is that due to exclusivity on only AT&T is why it does so well, it limits the people who has it but once this goes all carriers everyone will have it then shortly after nobody will want it because too many people have it, unless they differ in design like the galaxy S series. an all carrier iPhone = fail for iPhone. People will be able to compare the phone to androids in real world and in store, that is just horrible for iPhone because apple vs android = android win by large margin. AT&T also loses out. iPhone will have to be truly revolutionary next time around, i don’t think jobs can handle it.

      • TherealG

        The unfortunate thing 2FR35H is that too many people already have the iphone. I was at disneyland the other day and I would say 3 out of 5 people there had that horrible excuse for a phone.

        I have had an Iphone 3g and a 3gs I have a mytouch 4g now and it is a million times better than any iphone.

        • 2FR35H

          You’re right too many do but now imagine one capable with all carriers… More people because lets be honest there are quite a lot of non iPhone owners who would have it if only it was on a carrier other than at&t. imagine twice the amount maybe even 3 or 4 times more people owning one. People like iPhone for the ability to say they have an iPhone, and that also infers that its limited to certain amount of people. By releasing an iPhone on all carriers, you are removing that limitation of which also removes a bit of the popularity… Do you see what I am saying here?

          Also I definitely agreemytouch4G is better than an iPhone.

  • alex

    My 2 cents We have not gotten any sort of confirmation or leaked quotes from any execs from tmobile like we have seen the past couple of months about verizon getting this phone. Nothing to get excited about unless we get a leacked document or a tmobile branded iphone left in a white castle over the weekend….

  • iHate Apple

    Just because no one has mentioned it, the Galaxy Tab uses a 30 pin connector. #justsayin’

  • Rob

    If you don’t believe it’s in a tmobile store look at the bottom left corner.

    • alex

      I am not disputing the wire being sold in Tmo stores…I am disputing the iphone being carried by Tmo until its OFFICIALLY announced…As I said, nothing to get excited about..

  • currator

    don’t care for iphone 4. mt4g is the eyephone killer. even if they carried it they will only sell it to those teenies. because the tech side of the boat know that ios blows big donkey bolls. just my two cents.

    rents too damn high for mayor. lol hahahahahahaha

    • 2FR35H

      Android is the iPhone killer

  • Peter

    Oh God no! the day the Iphone come to Tmo, am switching to sprint. All I can see is problems.

  • MT4G/G2/HD2 USER

    Tj max and Marshalls sell iPhone accessories…………. so are they going to sell the iPhone too????????

    • twitch110

      That is just flat out horrible logic. Period.

  • Mike

    A little of subject here but I spoke to TMO yesterday and they said that the 20 month installment plans are gone. No more making payments to get the newest phones. Anyone else been told this?

    • dan

      i just bought my mytouch 4g like this yesterday

    • protest the hero

      I just bought my G2 on a 20 month installment plan. Its called Even More plus. I’m pretty sure it would have been on this site if Tmo just all of a sudden dropped their alternative phone plan. So don’t worry, you were just misinformed.

    • RockTripod

      Whoever told you that is lying, unless you’re in Arizona. They were trialling getting rid of EvenMorePlus there.

    • Toby

      I work for tmo and its still there… your safe lol :-)

    • IntheKnow

      The Installment plans are not eliminated. They have been reduced in limit but not gone.

    • John

      it has been removed from certain markets for test markets of eip 4 and eip 10 in place of eip 20 :)

  • AreYouSerious?

    Or maybe Apple is moving to sell unlocked iPhones out-of-contract directly from Apple? That could make sense. At this point, they are obviously moving away from At&t. THen they can start raking in some ‘unlocked phone’ money that 3rd part retailers are making.

  • Mike
    • Pimpstrong

      “Apple is widely reported to be introducing a new CDMA-compatible iPhone in early 2011 that can be sold by Verizon Wireless, a move that will put even more pressure on T-Mobile.”

      Dam, T-mobile may go under soon after that. AT&T’s poor service is holding a lot of users from going to get an iPhone AND its making a lot of current subscribers ready to jump ship and ATT knows this. That’s why they let people get full upgrades what a whole SIX months early?

  • joshua

    I bought the MyTouch HD, 4G, whatever the hell it is on the 19 month installment plan? That was on the day it was released so unless they changed it within the last two days, who knows. I didn’t have a problem though.

    As far as this cable, it makes me wonder. Tmobile barely sells anything in their store that caters to devices they don’t offer. Here’s the big question in my mind. Google releases the Nexus One on Tmobiles network and they never sold anything for it. Not even a case. Something is fishy here.

    • Actually, T-Mobile did sell accessories for Nexus One in their corporate stores. Ask my mom and her gel skin.

      • Faqundo

        Your mom has gel skin?

      • Scott B

        (Serve, set…)

        Your mom’s skin didn’t feel like gel last night!

    • Tubaking182

      tmo sells cases and screen protectors for the nexus

    • the other joshua

      If by “fishy” you mean “the iPhone 4 sold more units in its first day than the Nexus One has in its entirety so it’d be completely insane for Tmo to overlook building cheap accessories for the iPhone potential revenue stream,” you are completely right. Very fishy indeed.

  • Pimpstrong

    There’s no way in hell that the iPhone 4 is weeks away from T-Mobile and the first info that the internets get about it is a USB cable already appearing in a store.

    It could be possible that we are getting the 3GS? Or maybe since there are currently so many unlocked 3GS’ operating on T-Mobile, they decided to sell those users some accessories.

    Since you can’t even buy an AT&T iPhone 4 without a damn contract I can’t see Tmo catering to the few unlocked iP4 users.

    I’m no AT&T expert nor an iPhone expert. This is just what I’ve gathered.

    • David, Managing Editor

      Absolutely positively agree with this guy!!!

      • joeyf

        Why wouldn’t I return it. Even if the iPhone isn’t coming something is. They are not blowing up there network to be the best for a phone like the g2 and mt4g. They just don’t stack up next to the iPhone4. Its just a fact. They would be stupid to do all this marketing for two let Downs like the g2 and mt4g. T-Mobile needs a quality device like the iPhone in there lineup.

      • Pimpstrong

        joeyf, dude, are you returning your G2 for a Tmo iPhone? Or are you just so envious of the iP4 that you don’t want the G2?

      • keemworld

        Is this guy stupid or dumb how in the world can you say the g2 and mt4g can’t hold a candle to the iphone 4. I know I’m going to regret this but what makes it so much better to you.

      • Pimpstrong

        keemworld – scroll down and his reasoning is posted.

      • Rilesman

        With the AT&T exclusivity ending, perhaps T-Mobile will be advertising a migration to T-Mobile for a faster reliable “4G” network (have to use the quotes). Perhaps a phone trade? One AT&T 3GS for a T-Mobile 3GS for a fee. While 3GS is probably the most likely option as Apple dumps stock the iPAD would seem likely.

        Question, after contract and the ruling by the copyright office, can T-Mobile unlock iPhones for previous AT&T customers? Is there anything that would prevent them legally or technically?

      • Tubaking182

        this might upset me, managers have been saying that we need to be ready for black Friday that something HUGE is going to happen, but I really hope it’s not an iphone

      • James

        Theory: The new iphone vs. MyTouch marketing campaign features an iphone 4 being hampered by the at&t network… not an iphone 4 being hampered by being an iPhone 4. Could the next step in marketing be the alleviation of the (quite literally) back-breaking at&t network from the iPhone 4 and a new duo of ultra-high-end smart phones?

    • JB6464

      T-Mobile will not get the Iphone until after it’s released from AT&T contract and Verizon is line before T-mobile.
      The Iphone 4 will be released in Canada that’s going to have the specs needed for USA 3G service,you can buy it there and use it here in the USA and get 3G data ahead of time.

      • Pimpstrong

        I didnt know anybody else on this continent had the same radio waves as TMO’s 3G. If thats the case then yeah TMO US expects Canadian iP4’s (if can be bought without contract) to bleed down into the states and run rampid.

      • joeyf

        A few things.
        1. Video recording so much clearer
        2.scrolling through web pages is smoother and pinch to zoom is smoother
        3. Greater app selection
        4. Bettersound quality
        5. Better copy and paste feauture and mms views

      • Jeremiah

        @Pimpstrong Are you really that ignorant? Wind and Mobilicity run AWS up in Canada.

      • JB6464

        Vidoetron in Canada will carry the IP4 soon and it will have AWS with all the USA TMO 3G specs needed.

      • Pimpstrong

        Really that ignorant huh? Nah I would just call it the fact that I don’t live in Canada so I don’t know what bands their carriers use. Simply that.

    • 2006mr

      This is a great point and I love your thought process however, with all the current iphone 4 users…keep in mind, jaibreaking is now LEGAL. That said, many of them HATE AT&T and will end up (if not already) purchase the phones outright and then jaibreak/unlock on Tmo. Im just saying…

  • gja1926

    T-Mobile are taking over brace yourself fool

  • timmyjoe42

    for the iPad maybe?

    • VibrantOwnr

      or maybe even ipods?? lol

      • Pimpstrong

        lol hopefully the iPhone as well.

      • joeyf

        A little off topic but I’m going to bring back my g2 but I droped it lst night and it got two little nicks on the body. Do you think they are going to give me a hard time or does the restocking fee cove that.

      • Pimpstrong

        I’ve never returned a phone in the 14 or whatever day period so I couldnt help u. GL tho.

  • joeyf

    I have 4 days left to return my g2 and its going back today. I have a feeling this is really gong to happen. I feel that android is a great phone but there is just no denying that the iPhone is a far superior device. Just holding it in your hand you know its better. The HD video recording and camera are way better on the iPhone 4 and the apps are way better. And not to mention the display. I font undrstsnd why android couldn’t put a good display on this g2. Well I’ll be doing a lot of praying.

    • David, Managing Editor

      Don’t pray and don’t return your device, this is just a cable.

    • Pimpstrong

      lol @ “Just holding it in your hand you know its better”

      • Yyevo

        JoeyF just showed us why Apple is the #1 handset maker… marketing.

        You can have my G2 when you pry it from my cold, dead hands.

    • Sasquatch

      What if the G2 could grant you 3 wishes?

  • Noel

    Stevie & co have decided to take the fight to Android home tuffs. Apple knows there are many ppl who want the iPhone but don’t want to leave their carriers. They see the unstopable match of Android…the only way is to fight them from within. I think u may see the iPhone come to Magenta either thru unlocked sales or instore. So we maybe seeing the iphone on At&t, Verizon and most likely Tmobile. Apple is thinking u have Android on all major carriers so why not the iphone. Besides the goal is to move as many of these devices as possible…so let the battle roayal begin. It is the only way for apple bcz there is no stopping of the Android march to world domination..

  • Skeptical

    Tmonews you guys better be right. Seriously that is a BOLD statement to say “we are getting the iphone” just based off rumors and a data cable. You’ve been saying that forever now and I’m surprised people aren’t just sick of it by now. I hope you’re right because that would so great for tmobile and its customers. That means more $$ coming in to build and build that glorious 4G network.

    • David, Managing Editor

      Who said that in such a statement? We didn’t say that…we didn’t even remotely close to saying that. We posed a question as to why T-Mobile is carrying a cable and laid out the possibilities. We NEVER said “we are getting the iPhone.” Good try though.

    • Pimpstrong

      “we are getting the iphone” was stated as a possible answer to the question of why is there a Tmo labeled iPhone/Pod connector cable. na mean?

      • Pimpstrong

        I’m late

      • David, Managing Editor

        I really didn’t think anyone would take that out of context and I know Andrew didn’t when he wrote it. It was as Pimpstrong noticed, merely a possibility and shouldn’t be taken out of context. Nevertheless, I’ve amended the post with an update to try and quell the fires.

  • s

    I went to the tmobile store yesterday and purchased a new tmobile comet. The sales person said that there was to be a all hands on deck meeting on the 20th of Nov. He was expecting changes, but he didn’t know what the were. I Phone maybe?

  • Skeptical

    Thats cool if you wanna pretend you didn’t write that. I understand you meant that was a theoretical statement but you did say “the first answer is easy, we are getting the iphone”

    • David, Managing Editor

      I didn’t pretend anything, you obviously can’t read between the lines or inside the context of the quote. You are thus far, the ONLY person to have read that improperly. Obviously that quote by itself comes off totally different than it does in the context of the entire paragraph. Basic reading 101.

      • Skeptical

        Jesus christ dude you take things way too personally. Obviously you don’t see my point so fine you win mr managing editor. Nobody said anything about getting the iphone and you made it perfectly clear that is a rumor. Is tmorumors.com taken? Maybe I should become managing editor of that site and say whatever I want to and get pissed off when people point out things. Boo to you sir. Boo to you.

        • David, Managing Editor

          I didn’t take it personally, but you made a point that was in fact, incorrect. This is a very difficult subject issue and if even a single line goes out of context it could be a big deal so I have to make sure that doesn’t happen. Sorry if you felt my responses were to strong for your liking but I don’t understand why you said what you said. I apologize if you felt like it was to strong of a response on my part.

      • Pimpstrong

        LOL admit defeat Skeptikal you simply are the weakest link here.

  • tipsofme

    Now I do not agree these current adds have doomed us from getting the iPhone but I do know they are much to current for you to see this device this quarter or even q1 2011. Maybe it will be a summer release device to drive mid year sales? Even though it would damn smart to launch it q1 because that is by far the slowest quarter… then again people will still be paying off their Xmas bills so no. Q2-q3 for sure if ever.

    • Rilesman

      Perhaps Apple will let T-Mobile have the iPhone with the condition of stopping the ads…LOL…just joking around.

      • cincha

        I don’t think those ads are poking fun at the iphone just at ATT’s network…

  • patrickhuey

    yeah, it is most likely sold to unlocked iPhones for T-Mobile. I was in a T-Mobile store the other day getting a screen protector for my G2 and there were stuff for the nexus one..same difference pretty much

  • Androidless

    If (and this is a big IF) T-Mobile gets the iPhone, my wife would be extremely excited. She LOVES her iPod Touch and would jump to get an iPhone. I think it would be pretty cool if T-Mobile got an iPhone, personally. I wouldn’t necessarily want it, but a lot of people would. It’s all good.

  • Kane

    I hope starting next year (or by the end of this year) T-Mobile gets the iPhone. but I have a feeling that t-mobile might be getting the iPad, which would be good with their new data plan price.
    on the picture it says ipod and iphone connector, so its kind of clear that t-mobile is not giving away what they might have coming out.

  • Homey

    I saw it mentioned once in the comments and I keep hearing rumors about it also… what is the deal with the all hands on deck for all the tmo stores on Nov 20??

  • Viper Matrix Wireless

    I cant believe how everyone has forgotten what has happened the last few months.

    First of all as you see the packaging has been T-Mobile spiffed up. Apple sure in hell wouldnt allow this unless they had some agreement to carry the accessory. Verizon & Sprint sells this? No. I dont think so.

    Heres the most important piece. Videotron in Canada is getting the iPhone 4 anytime now. They said that there is an AWS prototype & that they were getting it. Since Videotron is getting it in Canada, T-Mobile as well could have finally signed up for it too.

    I know no one ever believes anything when it comes to Apple actually coming to another carrier in the USA because it never happens. But the iPhone was preparing to go in more places in 2011 anyhow.

  • Carlos

    Why is that my comments are not getting posted???

  • Lee

    To David and the rest of the tmo army: This isn’t about the iphone coming to tmo. Imo I believe that is making an unabashed statement that if you have a jailbroken iphone, try tmo and relish in the service that is meant for the phone. More and more ppl will jump on the bandwagon and request for the iphone to come tmo. In any case, its a win for tmo, Apple, Google, and Microsoft. It brings competition, ingenuity, larger consumer base, and notoriety for being America’s place for choice. Subtle but effective.

  • firebird

    We have all hands on deck meetings every few months. They aren’t unusual. The last one was about switching up our sales strategy to make it a bit simpler. Last year this time they rolled out the Even More/Even More Plus plans (no contract option and getting rid of My Faves). Sometimes they roll out huge changes and sometimes it’s just a refresher on what’s going on in our world. We talk about new phones and our current season’s marketing focus. They are just sales meetings basically.

  • SublimeDavid

    All hands on deck i heard about that but prob refers to a sale similar to what we saw in June this year, no word on an iPhone for tmo and we do carry accessories for other popular phones sometimes like we had one for iPhones and iPods in the form of gorilla pouches but did we get the iPhone? No..

  • SublimeDavid

    MattB answering your question sprint sells the iPad case in their stores to promo their mifi devices which has a secondary pouch built into it just for that little devices so other carriers do it as well, if tmi gets anything apple it’ll probably be an iPad first

  • Viper Matrix Wireless

    There is no AWS 3GS prototype. Verizon got the iPad to sell & there wasnt any info till days before it sold. Most likely as of this time period things wont leak till a lil before its release.

  • Perry

    Seems like Joey didn’t sip the kool-aid he downed the whole damn tub!! It reminds me of the hilarious youtube video of the EVO4G vs the iPhone. Video can be seen here:

    I love the fact that he states iPhone is a superior device based on “how it feels in your hand” LOL!!!! Too bad how it feels in your hand also kills your ability to make a call due to the reception issue.

    He also says
    1. Video recording so much clearer – really? The HD video on the iPhone looks better than on the Vibrant which has a much better screen?
    2.scrolling through web pages is smoother and pinch to zoom is smoother – really? Even if some of the other android phones have more powerful processors and GPUs?
    3. Greater app selection – Ya got me on that one. Android only has 100K apps while apple has 300K. Too bad we only have 600 “concert lighter” apps compared to the 6000 apple has.
    4. Bettersound quality – unless that sound happens to be a call right Joey?
    5. Better copy and paste feauture and mms views – really? copy and paste? That’s what you’re pinning your hopes on?

    How about expandable memory Joey? A battery you can replace yourself? tethering maybe? Ever hear of a widget or wallpaper? Ever want to customize YOUR property? Create your own wifi hotspot? Ever hear of Flash?

    I could go on and on but it would be pointless. Once you join the cult you’re stuck for life.

    Good luck Joey and enjoy the best “feeling in my hand” device on the market.

  • LongtimeTmoUser

    Tmobile in UK and Germany have had the iPhone for years.
    Would love to buy a Tmo UK iPhone and use it in USA.
    But it would cost about $800. Not including shipping/insurance.

    I’d be first in line to get a Tmobile USA iPhone4.
    Love the apps and integration of all the software/apps.

    Well one good thing, when Tmobile USA finally gets the iPhone, it’ll be a better model than what AT&T has had to put up with during the growing years.

      Correct me if i’m wrong, but I though T-Mobile UK bands were different than America’s?

  • titopuente

    Im a tmobile sales rep and we also started selling Nexus One accessories and we all speculated “Oh we’re going to be getting the Nexus in the store” and The Nexus One never arrived. I wouldn’t be surprised if we carry a couple more accessories for iphones/ ipods.

  • ronthegentleman

    as far as the iphone goes, we know apple has got the superior device so far. but when i think of iphone and android the “Great but do it our way *VS.* Good and do it your own way” comes to mind. i will be stickin with my way, android, cuz of the choices/freedom

  • Chris

    Another theory:

    TMO has an add comparing the myTouch 4G to the iPhone but really they aren’t attacking the iPhone, they are attacking the network. 1 person (TMO) vs. 2 (iphone and ATT). So what they are saying is the iPhone is good but it is in need of a better network. So how do you solve it? You have the iphone guy drop the ATT network and walk over to the TMO side and have him be in relief to have that monkey (network) off his back.

    TMO is doing a lot of advertising for a reason. Could the iPhone be the device that warrants this much advertising spending.

    Maybe so, but I don’t care b/c I got my myTouch 4G and would have bought that over the iPhone anyway.

    • Cybersedan

      +1 Love my Mytouch 4G, the iphone is eye candy in hardware and has some nice dazzling animation and effects, but it’s like a shiny porch 911 Turbo with a Volks Wagon engine (AT&T network), running software that limits your speed and where / when you can go fast, and which streets you can ride on (can’t ride on streets with flash).

      The Android experience is much more to my taste, I have the option to use flash if I want, I don’t need the company making my phone telling me what content I’m free to use.

      Now to those that are in love with the shiny “giggly brat vanity” they call an iPhone, to each his own.

  • Gavin

    I have not read all the responses but I believe this is a cable for the Samsung Galaxy TAB. They use the same proprietary connector! The TAB comes next week, right?

  • Viper Matrix Wireless

    Not according to the market share. Apple is in 3rd while Android is #1 @ 44%

  • canUrollwithtTHIS

    I used to work for the company. People would walk in all the time asking for different cables for some weird reason. The most popular was an iphone/ipod cable. Thats why they sell it. It’s probablly not cause their getting the phone.

  • nerd lust

    Not sure why all this fuss over the iphone! In 2008 I could understand but now there so many better phones. Don’t get me wrong the iphone4 is a great device, but not the greatest anymore. No sd card, no flash software, multitask lite… , no hspa+ ….

  • maria

    well its true that this doesn’t exactly mean we are getting Iphone…. but you gotta wonder why on earth tmobile would now sell the accessory. The Iphone has been used on tmobile unlocked for about as long as its been out, and now they’re starting to sell it… Does any other carrier (other than at&t of course) sell just this accessory? The new CEO isn’t screwing around hes trying to put some fight in T-mobile. So we’ll just have to wait and see.

    Btw I’m not an android fanboy I’m a blackberry user that happens to feel android is far superior then the iphone4.

    I pity the fool who thinks iPhone 4 is coming to T-Mobile this year. Non existing Gingerbread Nexus 2 made supposedly by Samsung has a better chance lol.

    Earliest time for iphone to work on T-Mobile’s frequency will be next year and it will be iPhone 5 with a similar pentaband that nokia has.

      If you want one that bad just get one fron Videotron in Canada and it has AWS and all the 3G specs for TMO USA service.

  • Tmobile guy

    The Tab uses the same 30 pin connector.

    People i don’t Know if you this but T-mobile actually sell’s the iPhone 3Gs and 4G. in UK. if you don’t believe this go to this link http://www.t-mobile.co.uk/shop/iphone/ . so there’s you mistery about tmobile iPhone Cable and long-timer rumors i have been watching this page for Months and i don’t know why no want ever mention this. REMEMBER THERES ANOTHER WORLD OTHER THAN THE USA and the Cloud (WEB) is the way to it… have fun suffering for something that is just miss comunication.

    Plus i have the MyTouch 4G since Wednesday 8:30am and it just RULES!!!! the only thing i hate is the damn Android Market is a Cluster-F)^%….

  • It’s pretty obvious they’re just trying to make money with an overpriced cable.

    The event calendar provided to T-Mo employees has an “Apple Day” on it for the month of November. Just sayin ‘.

    • annon

      What employees? I haven’t gotten any emails or memos! lol. Did I miss the apple train?

      • justsayin’

        @annon, it will be sent out soon. I am surprised HR has not sent the November Calendar out yet, as it is already Nov 6th. I can tell you late in the month, on a Friday (26th?) it’s Loungewear Day! LOL! It was in a video we say yesterday. Of course, our supervisor quickly denied that is was “Apple” related and said it was something else, but this is mighty coincidental.

    Justsayin are you being truthful or ur just playing with our heads?

    • justsayin’

      @Chris. I am not playing. I was not paying attention to the video at all until several co-workers excitedly said “What’s Apple Day? Are we getting the iPhone?” At which time the slide was quickly forwarded and we were told that it was related to something else and was not iPhone related. Again, coincidence?

    The cables are for the Samsung Tab. It uses the same 30-pin connector as the iPhone/iPad

    • Chris

      That is what I thought. I saw that they use the same cable and figured it would be for the Tab. The microSIM could have came from T-Mobile Europe since they sell iPhones…

    • RockTripod

      That doesn’t make sense. iPhone/iPad cables are proprietary, and now Apple decides Samsung can use them too? I call shenanigans.

      • David, Managing Editor

        There is absolutely ZERO reason that a cable capable of both iPhone AND Galaxy Tab charging would come in packaging just labeled for the iPhone. That’s misleading and terrible business, so let’s think rationally and realize it can’t be that, it’s got to be for an iPhone device, and like T-Mobile said, it could just be to serve the unlocked customer base.

    • Louisd

      @Amir: Then why doesn’t it say that on the package

  • cupcake

    ….Samsung Galaxy Tab…… Hello! It has the same connection…..People, do the math!

    • David, Managing Editor

      Can you explain why it didn’t come in Samsung or Tab packaging? Very unlikely T-Mobile would produce a product and label it for sale for another while supporting it for a totally different product.

    • darkknight49

      if it was the same cable, im sure Apple would have already filled about 12 infringement lawsuits.

  • Mingilicious

    Why would a cable that is Apple’s proprietary connector be used for a Samsung product? You should all know better.

    They look similar but they are not at all compatible. You guys have your information wrong.

  • T-mobile should have done this a long time ago, and also sell iPhone screen films. Lots of people with iPhones use T-mobile, it just makes sense. When I had my iPhone with T-mobile, my first instinct was to check out a T-mobile store to see if they had a screen film but they didn’t. They could have made profit off of me but missed that opportunity.

    • chris

      Why would you go to a t-mobile store to look for a iphone screen protector. Sound silly. Selling an iphone cable at a tmobile store for unlocked iphone users is silly too. They can be found in every electronic store.

  • HowdyDoody

    Sad to see T Mob go Apple. They may think its cool.. Oh well.. not too concerned while Apple has just 3.5MPS limit on their phones. No HSPA+ we’re looking good.

    Not concerned about users buying an Iphone, hey if they are fools enough to pay for an overpriced product, kudos to them for loosing their money.

    What I worry about it network quality,. I use 80-90% of my bandwith and do love what T Mob offers. But if they bring a hoard of not so bright iPhone users that quality will go down and Sprint is looking real nice. To bad its just CDMA, and would be limited to one radio at a time.

    Select T-Mobile stores will soon begin carrying iPod/iPhone charge and Sync cables to support customers who may be using an unlocked iPhone or are traveling from outside the United States and using an iPhone while roaming on our network. T-Mobile carries the iPhone in Europe, so many people traveling to the U.S. roam on our network with their iPhones. The iPod/iPhone cable also makes a great companion product for our line of MicroUSB charging solutions. The cable can be plugged into the USB port of the universal MicroUSB car, wall or two-in-one chargers to provide customers with a charging solution for their iPod when they are on the go.

    • Petey

      I think this is just an excuse… they must of have something up their sleeves.

  • SpeakEazy

    The iPhone has been available for T-Mobile in the UK for a while now
