T-Mobile Wants The iPhone, Too

Now that AT&T’s exclusivity on the iPhone has finally ended with Verizon Wireless officially announcing the iPhone yesterday, it seems T-Mobile wants in on the iPhone as well. As you may recall, T-Mobile USA’s new CEO and President already has a relationship with Apple. Before becoming CEO of T-Mobile USA, Philipp Humm previously was CEO of T-Mobile Deutschland, where he introduced the iPhone to Germany in 2007. According to The Seattle Times, a T-Mobile spokeswoman stated, “We [T-Mobile] would be interested in offering the iPhone, but ultimately it is Apple’s decision.”

While this doesn’t even remotely confirm a T-Mobile iPhone is indeed coming, it does however confirm that Magenta is definitely trying to strike a deal with Apple. And with T-Mobile recently sending out invites to an upcoming Press Event, it definitely does raise some eyebrows. I guess that’s just wishful thinking on our part.

What say you?

    Apple should be pitching the iphone to all major US carriers at this point….Look at what Samsung did with the Galaxy S line…..Why restrict yourself to 2 carriers? The demand is still there……Android’s universal availability among all carriers and across numerous manufacturers should make Apple want the IPhone in as many hands as possible……Apple will drown in a sea of little green robots if they don’t realize whats happening around them.

    I can see Apple doing this, since they know people buy the iphone and use it on t-mobile network :
    add all 4g bands to the iphone 5, a la Nokia, and sell it unlocked like they do now , tmobile users buy it
    without officially supporting Tmobile. All sales go straight to Apple.

    i am a huge tmobile fan since voicestream but i think verizon getting the iphone is going to seriously hurt all other carriers. think about it 30 million att iphone customers leave to verizon then pretty soon everyone you know has verizon then everyone leaves tmobile to have the newest iphone. watch its gonna happen

    • Blue

      dude 30 million people are not going to be switching, much less if they are on contract. I really don’t think many people will make the switch it’s just not practical. Maybe 10% of iphone users make the switch from att. Where we will really see a hit is from blackberry and android users on Verizon.

    i love android but i think i would cave and get an iphone. since apple would need to make a new iphone with AWS could you imagine if it was HSPA+ and we had the first and only 4G iphone?!

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_EZ6H6CXDQOOMH5AYFPS2CV3CKU Brian

      Be patient guys the iPhone will most likely hit your way guys. I am an Apple Fanboy please don’t hate on me.. I like Android it is a great OS but it just isn’t for me. (I love webOS but Palm dropped the ball a lot). Anyway Canada has AWS carriers as well & it appears that there is buzz that they will be getting the iPhone soon. Now a beta has been released for iOS 4.3 which has iOS devices code name iPhone 3,1 (GSM unit) 3,2 (Verizon/CDMA unit) but since iOS 4.0.1 there was a 3rd device listed iPhone 3,3 which hasn’t been revealed so that could be the Tmo phone. I expect the iPhone 5 to have HSPA+ for AT&T (doubt it will be LTE) So perhaps the next iPhone will be able to support both AT&T/Tmo HSPA+

    • Fsustrength

      Heck yea man! Wait for that iPhone 5! I love Android too, but honestly I would take an iPhone over it anyday. The one thing I would miss from Android are the widgets. I know they slow down the phone, but I’m surprised Apple hasn’t worked these into their devices yet, especially since they use them on the Mac. Bring it on!!

    Here’s the deal, Apple is all about exclusivity. They take good care to make sure their name remains that of prestige, and with that prestige comes a level of control. When it comes to their products, they like to have all the control (Look at Adobe and Apple exchanges). By allowing the iPhone to be sold on all carriers nationwide, they reduce that mystical exclusivity, resulting in the other carriers becoming emboldened believing that they are entitled to their share of the decision making… and Apple loses its choke hold on how they develop their products, ideas, what-have-you. Just look at how verizon was talking near the end of last year about the prospects of a VZW iPhone… “We have to earn it”?! Seriously, Apple has got these two companies by the balls.

      Except, Apple didn’t sign an exclusivity contract with Verizon, which means that it will probably end up on all carriers by years end.

  • fam

    Officially if apple wanted to keep the lead on the smartphone competition it would bring its phone to all carriers. I would be one of those people to get the iphone just for the simple fact that these other telephone companies keep taking out phones by the day and forget all about the old devices and don’t ever do the updates on them anymore. It’s really annoying when you buy a phone and you think nothing can get better than that and then a few months later they take out one better. Either make a beast of a phone for at least a year like the iphone or keep making updates on all the phones you sell… So I say bring the iphone.

      Or you can do your own updates which is the power of freedom.

    Honestly, my opinion has changed about the iphone. Though I’m not an iphone fan boy, I honestly wouldn’t mind apple being an option. I love android with all my little heart but I would like an iphone to add to the collectio. What can I say I’m a phonegeek lol!

Can’t wait for the day of the commercial where the iphone crosses to t-mobile with Carly. If there is going to be an upcoming Press Event lets be on the lookout, like Verizon’s Lowell McAdam said when the Press talks a lot about something it comes true, so let the t-mobile iphone rumors begin.

In fact, if you look at market trends, Apple is enduring massive but steady growth, and is the second highest capitalized company in the United States, and doesn’t show signs of slowing down anytime soon. Their products are considerably more reasonably priced than in the past, and every product launch they have had in the recent past has been epic. You bought Atari instead of Apple in ’81? Wow, if only you bought Apple back then and held on to it since then. You would be RICH!

          I gotta disagree, it looks like T-Mobile is network bashing only. If they wanted to bash the iPhone it wouldn’t need to mention AT&T or Verizon at all. Although I do get what you mean when you say iPhone gets hit in the process. But I think that anyone with half a brain can determine that they are really targeting the networks.

        • Petey

          Agree, Tmobile is bashing on the network due to slow 3G, and feels sorry for the iphone to be stuck with them. If he comes over to Tmobile, he would do better just like the MT4G. that’s how I see it.

          Again, Tmobile is bashing on AT&T & Verizon, not on the iphone.

        • Anonymous

          Fair enough to me.

      The commercials clearly say that the iphone is a great device but on a poor network. Its inviting the iphone to come and enjoy the speeds of t-mobile

        The MT4G is inviting YOU to buy a MT4G because TMO has a better network. The MT4G notices that the iP4 is stuck with a slow carrier but never says you should come play with me. And I see no where that the MT4G clearly says that the iP4 is a good or bad device.

        The commercials are promoting the MT4G and our fast network and making you feel like if you buy an iP4 vs. a MT4G then you will not get optimal performance. In the end thats all the average consumer see’s.

        If we carried the iP4 then this would be strictly carrier bashing but we don’t so the iP4 is catching shrapnel.

          The Carly character is flirting like hell with the iPhone guy… that pained “Does it hurt?” expression, etc. This whole series of ads is building up to the two of them strolling off into the sunset, leaving the rest of us Carly-watchers to go watch Summer Glau on “The Cape.”

        • Anonymous

          How is The Cape any way? I agree they make a good couple but what does it all mean if we never even get the iPhone 4? It means the MT4G is a better choice than the iPhone BECAUSE it runs on a better network. But im the only one who see’s it from this angle so its all good. Call me wrong. In the end the commercials make the MT4G a better buy than an iP4. Not equal and not less.

      Really? If you want a super android phone with a good keyboard, G2, no doubt. Smaller screen but still ‘enough room for activities’ ( Stepbrothers ) ‘Sense is cool, it has some nice widgets, but similar widgets can be found in the market for a reasonable price or even free. Vanilla android is the best way to go, in my opinion. (coming from an HD2 user running a NAND’d Android who used the Desire HD build but moved to a cyanogen vanilla release with a a couple of custom tweaks!)

      Now there is nothing telling me not to expect an iPhone on t mobile. It’s the when factor.

      Please don’t mention the Nexus S, it doesn’t even support HD Video recording so please & it is just a clone of the iPhone just like every Android phone out there besides the Atrix. The only Android Phone that is stepping up the game is Atrix. The Nexus S copied the Gyroscope from the iPhone 4, Apple did it so Samsung/Google did it. Apple revolutionized the Smartphone industry & every hardware company that chooses to doesn’t innovate besides screens, processors, or software tweaking for their own flavor. The Atrix does it right PERIOD!

    We have been using iPhones and T-Mobile USA since the very beginning. Currently we have an iPhone 4 and 2 iPhone 3gs’s. Even though we do not get 3G service since the current iPhone does not service AWS, we have noticed a real improvement in edge data speeds, while its not 3G we often see over 400kbs.

    Yes we paid dearly for the phones they are true unlocked iphones (not a software unlocks) bought from Italy and Canada.

    The money we have saved using t-mobile as our provider has more than offset the higher purchase price vs using ATT. Plus we have great service where we live, we could not ever get ATT 3G service at our home and this was very frustrating.

    Now if t-mobile just can land the iPhone with AWS this would be perfect!

    Bring it on! I’m hoping I won’t have to switch carriers to get the iphone. My Samsung Behold is over 2 years old and my next mobile will definitely be an iphone and hopefully with Magenta:-)
