T-Mobile Says Over One Million iPhones Currently On The Network

The folks over at 9to5mac found out an interesting factoid regarding the number of iPhones currently running on T-Mobile’s network. During a press event in New York T-Mobile offered up the quick fact that there currently over one million iPhones running on T-Mobile’s network. The majority of these iPhone users are iPhone 4 owners who discovered online home remedy solutions to work around the Micro-SIM trouble by taking a scissors and creating a Micro-SIM card. It’s amazing that right around 3% of T-Mobile’s customer base uses a phone that isn’t completely supported and doesn’t operate on T-Mobile’s 3G or 4G networks.

While we’ve seen indicators that T-Mobile has worked on a Micro-SIM solution for unlocked iPhone owners they aren’t available for purchase and aren’t carried in stores. With Apple recently beginning to sell the unlocked iPhone T-Mobile should take note of the sizable audience who would love to use an iPhone on T-Mobile, even if it’s unlocked. Of course there are always those rumors about T-Mobile actually carrying the iPhone in the near future.

Love or hate the iPhone it’s hard for any business to ignore 3% of their customer base. When asked about the possibility of a T-Mobile iPhone in the future T-Mobile responded they had nothing to announce at this time.

    What does that tell you tmobile push for that iPhone get it and there will be no more merging……

    • phressh

      Tmobile wants the merger though… I’m sure they won’t do anything to compromise that…

      • The ATL Guy

        I doubt getting the Iphone would do anything to stop the sale. 
        Its not like congress or the FCC is going to go, “OMG tmobile now supports the iphone!!!! WE BETTER STOP THIS THING”. 
        The job of the government isn’t to nitpick and stop progress. 

        • The buyout isn’t a good example of progress,it’s the opposite.  hmmm opposite of progress opposite of pro = con…gress, eh, we’re screwed.

        • Anonymous

          Really, were are screwed because of congress…. how about the people that voted them into office or the people that complain about them but didn’t vote at all (not really directed at you). 

        • more of a play on words than an actual comment.  The crappy thing about voting is when issues other than politics are the reason people vote, like Oprah said they were a good candidate, or if you don’t vote for X person, you are a racist….etc.

        they want the merger because T-Mobile isn’t in a good position right now. but Carrying the iPhone with t-mobile rates, I think that will bring back old subscribers who left plus new subscribers.

        would be nice to have tmobile version iphone w/ hspa+ “4g” speeds.

    • DavidOhio

      That alone would not stop the merger.  The merger has nothing at all to do with the iphone.  It is about spectrum and At&t’s path to a very large LTE 4G network.  Oh, and money of course lol

    • DavidOhio

  • rchrisgomez

    And yet, we still don’t have official T-Mobile support for the iPhone. Looks to me like T-Mobile can’t take a hint. About a million of them.

    • DavidOhio

      If only it was easy, I am sure T-mobile would carry it if they could.

        Dont get me wrong I am not talking about 95% of the android fans out there which I am one. 
        I am speaking of the 5% or maybe even less who seem to take Steve Jobs so personally its like the guy came over to their home and peed on their dog.

        Getting ahead of yourselves?
        Sorry, but most android uses careless of what/how iphone is doing.
        Watch out for the WP7 fanboys….LOL

        There is no stopping the flood of android army.

        iphone will make the most $ for apple (off of it’s users). but it will never be #1 OS.
        Just look at windows vs. mac.

        • The ATL Guy

          I have owned 4 android phones. 
          The g1 was a pile of crap kinda like they released a not ready for prime time phone. 
          Cliq turned out to be a POS. 
          Nexus was good but couldnt handle heave use. 
          I have now been through 3 Mytouch 4g’s. 
          Much better than the Nexus but overall at this point I am willing to switch OS so will be watching what winmo does and the next Iphone. 
          Google doesnt give 2 $hits about all the craptastic phones that have been released with its OS. 

        • Ash

          I don’t doubt you own many phones.

          I was only replying to this point from you guys.

          “Oh I’ll be watching the comments carefully and I’ve got Wambulances on standby for the Android fanboys.”
          On standby? oh really?
          And reading all the comments below, I don’t see any ANDROID FANBABIES.

          A post about iphone having many users on t-mo and you think oh noes, android fans are coming, I don’t understand the thinking behind this.

          The only thing I think of when I see iPhone on T-mo….”edge only…sad face”

    apparently there is a lot of money that a carrier has to commit to.  our ceo said in one of our meetings that when they had this discussion with Jobs the quantity commitment was really BIG and it made it financially difficult to agree to those numbers.

    They (senior leadership) is amazed as well and would love to have more.  Here’s to hoping the iPhone 5 or 4S or whatever they call it will be a true “world” phone 

    • Petey

      I don’t think it would be a problem regarding the “quantity commitment” because look at the demand for this phone and I think if tmobile did carried the iphone, they won’t be in this situation where they’re at right now.

      • Foofighter28

        I dont know, they didnt disclose the quantity but if it was enough for tmo to say wow i dont know if we can sell that many…that says something

    I wonder how many of these customers are prepaid customers. Seen a lot of them lately. The iPhone is cool but why use a phone on a network where it can only run on EDGE? Beats me but then again to each his/her own……

    • Anonymous

      Well isnt that the same thing?  I mean its impossible to catch 3g on ATT on the iphone as it is……

    • Petey

      Well, maybe they use their phone for just Voice/Text and uses Wifi for data to cut down the monthly cost.

    • Ahem, TmoNews didn’t write the article. It was placed here by the site for TMobile fans, subscibers, etc.’s interest. If your not interested, don’t read it. Here’s the source:
      http://9to5mac.com/2011/06/22/t-mobile-usa-were-now-carrying-over-a-million-unlocked-iphones/

      I also enjoys this site’s members’ ability to refrain from hateful comments.

    • I don’t care for the iPhone myself, I prefer to make my own decisions than have a censorous jackwagon at Apple make them for me. Nonetheless, you’re way off base with this.

      – The iPhone is a fairly important device in the great scheme of things. It pioneered some major features that made their way into smartphones proper, and it remains highly influential
      – The iPhone is an immensely popular device, as the above article shows.
      – A large number of T-Mobile users /want/ the iPhone, even if I don’t.
      – David himself fits into the latter category (indeed he has one)

      Android may be to T-Mobile what the iPhone is to AT&T, but even AT&T carries Android phones, and you’d expect AT&T customers to talk about the only popular open smartphone platform; likewise you’d expect many T-Mobile users (or even users of networks incapable of getting it, like Nextel) to be interested in news that links the iPhone to their favorite carrier.

      That’s all this article is. It addresses the demand, It’s not flamebait in anyway from what I can see. It doesn’t say “i like ios android sux”, it doesn’t even say “The iPhone is the best”, it just addresses the demand for it on T-Mobile.

      Of course, if Apple intends to provide the iPhone to T-Mobile customers, they better hurry up. Assuming AT&T gets its way, our beloved carrier will no longer exist in a few months.

    Using an iPhone and only being able to use edge actually isn’t that bad. Just depends on what you use it for. Sad part is I think tmobile edge is faster than AT&T 3G a lot of times. – iPhone user-

          Lol awesome I wrote this on my G2x!! :) Its a pretty cool phone isn’t.I just hated that as soon as I got it the Sensation cane out!! But that’s ok I wouldn’t trade my awesome G2x! :)

        • Jarvis Billena

          Well i gotta say i have both the g2x and the sensation..My g2x is rooted running eb rom with no bugs like some other people mention and my sensation is still stock waiting for the unlocked bootloader update..All in all, I love both of these great devices..

    IOS doesn’t own. If it did, it would be the number one OS, but it’s not. Go figure! i’m sure there’s a lot more Android users than IOS, which probably makes up a lot more than 3 %. The I-phone is a mid-level smartphone at best. It is not a superphone, besides most Android phones are better than the I-phone. think about it from an unbiased viewpoint. One-Android is totally customizeable, two-Android has Adobe flash, Three-removable battery, four-expandable memory, five-not overpriced, six-no I-tunes, seven-DRM content free music, eight-songs can be deleted from the phone with out it having to be plugged into a computer, nine-not just one form factor, but many, ten-not just four versions, but well over two dozen, and eleven-wider variety of apps with 60% of them being free, compared to Apple’s what? about 30%. These are all facts not opinions. I do like Android, but i’m not a fanboy. I might actually try a meego device. personally, I like the freedom that you get on Android, but that you don’t get on IOS, Windows mobile, as well as Blackberry. On Blackberry you can change the fonts, the colors of the fonts, and the layout of the main page, but that’s about it, unless it’s different for the Storm. Obviously IOS is an inferior OS with too many limitations. I do have to give Steve Jobs credit for being a brilliant marketer and selling everyone on this mid-level smartphone, as being the best, when it’s obviously not, as well as a great businessman. Can you even over-clock the processor of the I-phone, even after you jailbreak it? I am curious. 

    • Obviously Android will have more than 3% on T-Mobile, they sell a dozen Android phones against one unlocked, not carried by the carrier iPhone. Obvious troll is obvious. I can’t possibly think about it from an unbiased point of view when you are clearly biased. Every single statement you made was opinion, not fact. Learn to support multiple OS’s. Sigh…how many of your so called facts are either A) Wrong? or B) Wrong because you didn’t take the time to do any research whatsoever?

      • Tortionist

        I wouldn’t say troll. Just an informed and experienced consumer who knows his smartphones pretty well. I wouldn’t shout troll just because it’s popular to do so. A troll would be somebody like Guest or ATL guy. I can’t think of anyone i’ve seen who trolls more than they do.

        • You aren’t informed at all, that’s my point. 1) iOS 5 rectifies the inability to delete a song off the phone and if you want to moan about how it took this long to get that, just remember Android and the whole screenshot factor 2) iTunes has DRM-free music 3)People pay for iPhone apps because the quality of the app far exceeds that of rival platforms 4) Flash sucks, don’t use that argument 5) Expandable memory? Come on…you’re using expandable memory to get the same memory capacity the iPhone already has built in…next.

          Seriously, learn to separate fact from fiction and opinion from fact. You did troll, you did make assumptions without the benefit of research and lastly, you clearly support one OS over the other therefore eliminating your “I’m not biased at all argument” once you sat there and came up with 12 different “positions” that once again lacked the benefit of research.

          Android should be the number 1 OS. You know where Android isn’t doing as well? Profits. Apple far outpaces other manufacturers on profit margins and since you probably need the business lesson, profit = good. Fact. Apple could buy every major Android manufacturing competitor combined other than Samsung. Or they could just buy Samsung. That’s where the real lesson is, Apple doesn’t care about having the largest marketshare but they do care about the returns their shareholders see and in case you haven’t noticed, they’re a well performing company.

          Stop using marketshare as the only factor with which you can win an argument because that’s only one factor out of many that make up the “winner” in the smartphone race. Android has two dozen plus manufacturers churning out new Android phones like the world is going to end so of course they have a higher marketshare. They are on more carriers with more options and yet Apple still holds its own. Go figure.

          Lol GO DAVID!! :)

        • While you may state a couple facts, it also seems that you may be a bit biased. 1- Expandable memory is a bit more convenient on Android seeing as how one can drag and drop any file type without much issues. One also will pay less adding 32 gb to their phone compared to paying for the 32gb iphone. 2-It may be that Iphone has a few more quality apps than android, but that goes both ways sometimes. You make it seem as if all Iphone apps beat all rival apps, which simply is not true. 3-then you say flash sucks, without backing it up. Flash may have its issues, but to be honest I have never had a problem with it, and when I had an IPhone i found myself missing it more often than not.

          The above poster may actually be an uninformed troll, but by your above post, I had to scroll up and make sure that I was actually reading the post of the editor of TMONEWS and not some MODMYI Apple fanboy..smh

          Actually I was just stating facts as they were, David has brought to light (in a very unprofessional manner) that some of these facts have changed. Which is too bad, because I like his blog. I can accept that. He does need to grow up and not let is biased emotions get the better of him. I lost all respect for him tonight. When you’re supposed to be a professional you can’t just go around being a jerk to someone who disagrees with you, especially if you don’t want possible backlash. It’s all right David, I forgive you. This time.

          As much as I can’t stand dude at times, he made some very valid points. Especially on the whole breakdown on why Apple/ iPhone is still winning and banking more than Android, come on dude… that was better than most of his articles he’s written. On top of that, it’s true! Flash does suck! Deal with it, troll.

          I’m more informed than you want to believe. Flash doesn’t suck as much as a stripped down for phone type website. So when did I-tunes get DRM content free music? Last I heard, Steve Jobs said that wouldn’t happen. Quality is only opinion, so that’s no argument there. Can you download an app that changes the user interface and makes it more interesting or fun? What about SWYPE? I didn’t think so. I have played with the I-phone 3GS and 4 and I was not impressed. I was more impressed with the HD7(sadly). Of course Apple has bigger profits than Android. Android is free. I’m sure they have other ways of making money off of it, but it still won’t compare to the actual sale of a phone. no, I don’t need the business lesson, but you need to not take this so seriously and stay calm. I mentioned a bunch of facts. You don’t have to be a jerk and call me names just because you don’t agree. I’m glad some of these facts have been rectified. I do tend to trust consumerreports more than you, since they are supposed to be unbiased, although I don’t necessarily agree with everything they put out. There’s several reason Apple holds their own. One, brilliant marketer, Two, great businessman, three, first of it’s kind, four, limited options, so higher sales. I have noticed that they perform well as far as stock goes, so does Darden Restaurants, RR Donnelley, and Google.

        • Ash

          One problem I see in your comment is, unless you have apple stock, I don’t see why a company making the most profit….off of you the customer, can be a plus.
          I hope you have their stock, $_$

        • You aren’t informed at all, that’s my point. 1) iOS 5 rectifies the inability to delete a song off the phone and if you want to moan about how it took this long to get that, just remember Android and the whole screenshot factor 2) iTunes has DRM-free music 3)People pay for iPhone apps because the quality of the app far exceeds that of rival platforms 4) Flash sucks, don’t use that argument 5) Expandable memory? Come on…you’re using expandable memory to get the same memory capacity the iPhone already has built in…next.

          Seriously, learn to separate fact from fiction and opinion from fact. You did troll, you did make assumptions without the benefit of research and lastly, you clearly support one OS over the other therefore eliminating your “I’m not biased at all argument” once you sat there and came up with 12 different “positions” that once again lacked the benefit of research.

          Android should be the number 1 OS. You know where Android isn’t doing as well? Profits. Apple far outpaces other manufacturers on profit margins and since you probably need the business lesson, profit = good. Fact. Apple could buy every major Android manufacturing competitor combined other than Samsung. Or they could just buy Samsung. That’s where the real lesson is, Apple doesn’t care about having the largest marketshare but they do care about the returns their shareholders see and in case you haven’t noticed, they’re a well performing company.

          Stop using marketshare as the only factor with which you can win an argument because that’s only one factor out of many that make up the “winner” in the smartphone race. Android has two dozen plus manufacturers churning out new Android phones like the world is going to end so of course they have a higher marketshare. They are on more carriers with more options and yet Apple still holds its own. Go figure.

        • Frigadroid

          No I would have to agree with David definitely troll worthy. Tort you have a big bias against apple, I know because we went through this before. Why is it so hard for you to accept apple’s success nobody is going to force you to use one so stop drinking the hateraid.

    • iPhone and Android Lover

      Just a little thought its kinda easier to become the top os when its chocked down almost every single phone and every manufacture makes 1,000 Android phones every 5 sec. Its more impressive when a SINGLE os on ONE single phone has a large market.Im not saying which is better than the other one Im just saying you shouldnt use the Android market has a bigger market excuse! Also this was written on my G2X! ! :)

      • Tortionist

        Good for you. It’s also not as impressive as you think. In Economics, they teach that the first innovative product of its kind will sell the most and it will take competitors a while to catch up. It’s Apples fault for going with only one carrier to start with and only 1 form factor. I personally think that had they put out several more phones with IOS (flip, slider, etc.) and not limited themselves to one carrier for so long, that Android might not have ever passed them up. People want choice, not just one form factor. the reason I-phone does so well, is because it’s the first touchscreen smartphone in the U.S. and was innovative for it’s time, as well as Steve Jobs being a brilliant marketer and shrewd businessman. The reason Android took off was because it’s open source (Free) and Verizon’s great marketing.

        • Android took off of because of Verizon’s marketing, don’t kid yourself about the whole “open” factor. Second, it wasn’t the first touchscreen phone in the US. Third, what’s impressive about Apple and their “second to market” factor is how well they outperform who does it first. They not only catch up, they surpass and they do it with profits that most companies would sell their children for. It is incredibly impressive. Apple is a case study.

        • Tortionist

          Actually Apple had the first touchscreen phone in the U.S. way back in the early eighties. It wasn’t a smartphone. The Prada and some other were the first touchscreen smart-phones in the U.S. As far as the world goes, that’s a different story. I do agree that Apple is a case study, especially when it comes to how business should be done and marketed. Don’t kid yourself about the whole open factor. Companies are constantly looking at ways of cutting costs and making a buck. Manufacturers saw the possibility as well as saving money. Android, didn’t really start to take off until Verizon had the Droid and did their marketing campaign. 

        • Ash

          You are thinking of only the USA market, think of the whole world, Android still took off like crazy without Verzion.

          Comment FAIL!! The innovative iPhone wasn’t the first touchscreen smartphone in the States, sadly! I’m not sure what phone was the first, but I know for sure there were Palm Treo’s and HTC Tilts or whatever they were called launched and marketed before the iPhone. 

        • Tortionist

          It was the Prada and some other one in 2007, so not fail. The very first touchscreen in the U.S. was in 1983, not a smartphone or cellphone though.

      The iPhone is the best, trust me! Everyone I know has one, and if they have Sprint etc., then they have a iPod Touch to give them that iPhone feel. Nobody window shops in the T-Mobile store drooling over Androids like the way people do in the Apple Store! Why? Because iOS OWNS and everyone knows it.

      Besides, 85% of the Android phones end up becoming FREE with a contract on all major carriers. I’ve seen senior citizens and even transsexuals with the Comet, Optimus T etc.., so don’t give me that market share crap! Besides, only SUPER NERDS are fascinated with Android… and half the reason is because it falls within their budget after a few months of release, unlike the wonderful iPhone. 

      At the end of the day, a million people are NOT using the G2, MyTouch, G2x, Vibrant, or whatever on T-Mobile! But a million+ people ARE using the beautiful, brilliant iPhone on T-Mobile!!

      I love you, Steve Jobs! 

      • Tortionist

        In the beginning it was brilliant, but it sure isn’t now. It’s also definitely not beautiful. Those are definitely my own opinions and we can agree to disagree. You don’t know how many of these other  phones have been sold and are being used, so i’d advise you not to act like you know.

      I have been using the iPhone on tmobile for 3 years now. I have unlocked, jailbroken, and sold over 200 iPhones to be used on tmobile. The new ios 5 for the iPhone does rock. It has taken into the build most of the jailbreak tweeks that iPhone users like myself have grown to love. My wife still won’t give up her iPhone so I have to keep it updated, but I just went to the other side as the Sensation came out. I was getting tired of trying to keep pace with people getting mad that they updated their iPhone ios and were now locked out of using it for tmobile. Anyway, many of the tweeks that are on the android, the iPhone can do also. it really comes down to personal preference. (PS. The word ” iPhone ” is correctly represented in the default dictionary on the Sensation but ” Tmobile ” has to be user added. Go figure. Just waiting to root the sensation to see what it can really do.

One also will pay less adding 32 gb to their phone compared to paying for the 32gb iphone. 2-It may be that Iphone has a few more quality apps than android, but that goes both ways sometimes.

  • HermanMelville

    3% of people on T-mobile are brainless drones.  What good is using an iPhone on T-Mobile when your data connection takes 3 years to load one web page?  Seriously, these people must be mentally handicapped.  Only reason they get an iPhone is to be cool, and you can’t argue anyway around it.  My girlfriend’s sister is the same way, she bought an iPhone 3g 6 months ago to use on T-Mobile.  I repeat iPhone 3g.  She’s in high school and all the cool girls have iPhones, so you can guess why she got it.

    • Victor19

      Incredibly, a lot of people are only interested in messaging, not internet. My wife is one. If your primary use of an iPhone is music/apps/voice/messaging then you can easily live with EDGE.

      • HermanMelville

        Then what’s the point of having an iPhone?  It’s not like the iPhone is heralded for messaging.  Any phone with a keyboard is better for messaging, no arguing that.  Most apps that mean anything require an internet connection (obviously not including games and useless things like that).  The only reason that would make sense is being able to combine your iPod with a phone to save you from having 2 devices.  And while every other phone can also play music, you can make a case for i products being better music players.

        • Evan Carter

          The build quality, the OS, the functionality, the apps….. You’re just as bad as the little girl in high school buying a iphone 3g, you hate a phone just because in some crowds its the cool thing to do. People want things they like, get over it. I have a G2, but if I had the chance to get an iphone 4, Id do it in a heartbeat.

          Get over it, your life will be much more joyful without your raging teenage fanboyish mentality.

        • HermanMelville

          Sorry try again.  Seems like you’re the fanboy here.  I’m just being realistic.  When the iPhone 4 came out, I’d get it if I was on AT&T because it was the best phone out at that moment.  A couple months later, when a better android device came out I wouldn’t.  The only thing that you listed that makes any sense about the point of having an iPhone is the build quality.  You didn’t even list the best draw that iPhone has: the retina display, though the superAMOLED plus has beat that already.  It’s funny when people talk about the OS and functionality of the iPhone vs android phones when they are so similar. The iPhone is basically a big set of pretty looking icons.  Android is basically a big set of icons + widgets. When comparing my girlfriend’s G2 and my best friend’s iPhone 4, I can’t even notice a difference between the 2 in terms of performance except that the G2 loads data faster.  The only difference is the look of them.  I can’t tell if you’re joking about the apps or not.  What apps does the iPhone have that androids don’t?  A number of games, all of which are currently being ported to android as we speak, some of which already have.  You can tell who the fanboys are because they continue to buy a device after it’s already outdated just because it has an apple on it.  Android users typically buy the best android device out when they are up for a renewal, they don’t go and buy a G1 because it’s that device, they buy a G2 or a Thunderbolt or a Sensation, whatever the top phone is at the time.

        • Can you tell me why you’re in such a tizzy about what others use for cell phones? Unless you’re the one buying the phone and paying the bill, why should it matter? If you want to go back to 2 years ago when TMO’s phone selection was piss poor, then hey, I have a Cliq for sale. But more choice is better for everyone. 

          And if your definition of a fanboy is “..fanboys are because they continue to buy a device after it’s already outdated just because it has an apple on it.”, then you sir are quite shallow minded. As much as I love (and apparently you as well) those high end Android devices, there are other people out there who don’t care about all the fancy words and acronyms but just want something that gets updates at a reasonable schedule, doesn’t reset on its own (G2x), doesn’t suffer marketplace fragmentation (ATT does this)  and actually can last a full day on 1 charge (try doing that with an Evo).

          You made the point. If you’re going to have one device the iPhone is arguably at the top of the heap. Plus it’s the iPhone…..for better or worse people like it and like being seen carrying it around. I can see the sacrifice of not having 3G (not me personally) especially if you can connect Wifi if needed.

          And games, yes, people play a lot of games. I live in NYC and people on the subway are always playing games on their iPhones.

        • HermanMelville

          Being seen carrying it around…exactly that’s all that needs to be said.  There’s no argument, the iPhone is definitely not the top of the heap anymore in any way other than making a person cool factor.  We’ll see where the iPhone 5 stands but the iPhone 4 is most certainly not.  Sensation, Evo 3D, Thunderbolt, Atrix and especially the Galaxy S II completely blow it out of the water in every way.

          “Sensation, Evo 3D, Thunderbolt, Atrix and especially the Galaxy S II completely blow it out of the water in every way.”

          It’s not cool enough comparing to the iPhone, and that’s the reason why the iPhone is still popular regardless of how long the phone has been out. Did you see people waiting in long lines waiting for any of the android to be release?… no.

        • Anonymous

          Well….Thats not strictly true. The iphone4 STILL has the best screen as judged by a HUGE number of different sources including users and tech critics. The iphone4 camera has been listed as the TOP camera,(even though the specs aren’t) by flkr and the iphone4 DOES have the best performing music player. While it DOES have a closed os and it IS limiting in many ways, the iphone is most certainly NOT a device that is only purchased for image. I am NOT an iphone user, I am an android user and really like it but the iphone is still a really good piece of technology.

        Why would you talk about your budget as if it’s limiting you while talking about buying the most expensive phone on the market when you could get any number of free android phones that work just as well and probably even better if they’re any of the newer ones.  Case solved: you’re a moron.

          hahaha you call me a moron yet an illeligent person would ask more questions before basing a conclusion… OK lets see why do i use an Iphone but am limited on a t-mobile budget… I love android so dont get me wrong – but for MY JOB and what i need to do only an Iphone will allow me to do – then i do not want to carry an ipod and android phone – i do not like doubletwist and for various other reasons – but calling me a moron without finding out the facts makes you look a little more foolish then my comment… anyhow you are entitled to what you say even though i may not like it…

    • Who says they are paying for the data connection? Some people use pre-paid or no contract plans with just voice and texting. Right now I’m using an iSpot for my data. Some people don’t even need the data connection, they are fine with using wifi or even own hotspots.

    • Petey

      AT&T 3G is same or much slower than T-Mobile Edge (from what I encountered)… and that’s in the bay area. My friend had the cliq or whatever along that line on AT&T, and it was ridiculous slow! So why pay a premium for AT&T “3G” when you can pay less w/ T-Mobile & experience maybe abit faster web experience than AT&T?…

      So all these people who using iPhone on Edge is probably the same as users using on AT&T 3g haha.

    american iphones or european ones?

    i betcha a grey market euro t-mo iphone works way better than a jailbroken att american iphone.

    up until ANDROID arrived, i always used grey market t-mo euro phones.

    i loved my nokia e-70.

    • big

      ditto. Used to get cool phones from myworldphone dot com. I remember the first one I bought was a Samsung D-500…something like that. It was a slider with a great camera, and I believe it was a tri-band which at that time was pretty shnazzy

  • I’d say a million users should be enough to tickle Steve Jobs ear in officially bringing the  iPhone to Magenta, and when I say officially I mean supporting T-Mobile’s 4G bands. That number of users will only go up rather than down and marketed with T-Mobiles low prices I see a win-win combo. Hopefully that’s what this iPhone 4S rumor is all about. I love my Nexus S, but my first love was iPhone.

      I was hoping they would come out with one, instead of Verizon! Goshdangit. Guess who’s at fault for the AT&T / T-mobile deal? Apple. It only makes sense that they do release it, to sell more! And hey, it would be the first 4G iPhone (well not really, but as fast as one)! Being a iOS developer it drives me crazy having to test on my friends iPhone 4’s since jailbreaking and unlocking screws some stuff up on mine (I’ve learned the hard way). Sorry for ranting.

      Keep in mind all other countries with Tmobile have the Apple iPhone and iPad2. 
      Its just Tmobile”USA” that does not have the iPhone. 
      Don’t blame Apple. 
      Blame the politics of doing mobile business in USA.

    • Dpro

      LOL, It has nothing to do with Apple. Apple offered T Mobile USA the Iphone in the beginning. T Mobile USA and its poor management turned it down. I have a friend who works corporate at T Mobile USA he informed me of this. Apple then went to Verizon and Sprint and neither of them wanted to take it on for Apple’s price either. SBC read SBC which renamed itself ATT after purchasing ATT was the the only ones willing to play ball. They gambled on it and gambled correctly. If T Mobile USA had managed to use their brains for once they could have had it and we would not be looking at the sale of T Mobile USA. DT handled T Mobile USA poorly and had a poor marketing and management team here.
      Mistakes, mistakes, mistakes is what has led to the current situation and T Mobile USA has known for years they had a lot of Iphone users on the network but they still refused to try and play ball with Apple which would have saved their asses.
      Its really quite sad, regardless of if you are anti Apple or not the Company to blame is T Mobile USA, not Apple.

    Now that we are on the subject of iPhone use on TmobileUSA, will someone fill us in on the current plan costs that we would be looking at if we made the jump to a iPhone?

    For someone who doesn’t need unlimited everything because they are fortunate to be around unlimited landlines and WiFi spots (home / work), I am more interested to learn about options for the lowest cost plans available with talk/text/data/.

    Is it cheaper to use a prepaid sim?  I heard that TmobileUSA has a iPhone plan, but I can not locate it on the TmobileUSA website.  Any info I locate in the TmobileUSA forums is outdated.

    • Brianb

      Iphone users only get EDGE dataspeeds because it’s a AT&T model with no tmo 3G or 4G bands.  Tmo and AT&T use same voice band and same EDGE speed data band but different 3G radio bands (or ‘stations’). 
      You buy an unlocked AT&T model on Ebay for about $400 and put your sim from Tmo in and it works;) 
      NO 3G though…just edge data.

      Apple is now made an unlocked retail but it’s still an AT&T 3 G model No Tmo 3G bands. So you still are stuck on edge.

      NOW, The best price I’ve gotten in the last week on an ‘u’nlimited’ data, text and talk from AT&T (WITH MY company discount was $128 a month).  Tmobile everything is $80 a month.  So you pay almost $50 more to have a plan on AT&T….

      I’ve had AT&T in 2004 and it was no better than tmo for dropped calls or coverage in my city.  Why is it $50 more?  Cause it HAS the Iphone?  Their prices JUMPED major a year after having the Iphone.  AT&T was (and is) raping people.

      • Petey

          sensation will get updated to ics within 3 months of the new nexus coming out, my sidekick probably 6 months but i doubt ill have either of them for that long as a personal phone i have a phone collection from just this year that makes my wallet cry i have 25 phones just from the end of 2010 to now i have phones from every network so i mostly use a wifi hotspot for my phones that arent on tmobile but ever since i got my sensation my sidekick my g2x my mt4g my galaxys s and my galaxy s 4g, they are all crap compared to it, so judging bye the over all happiness from this phone not just from me, ittl get ics pretty soon because A TON of ppl will buy and already bought this phone that there will be such a high demand for it. and though i agree with a few thing that the typical cracker saidd like a better music player and that porn rules my ipod touch 4g is basically an iphone 4 but wont call, the only thing im not happy with is that iphone will never get widgets and that not every1 wants to jailbreak their phone oh and btw typical cracker dude those smart tvs rule dont they lol, ps to any1 that cares or has the same problem tht im having, my gslate is having the same problem that the g2x had (though i didnt experience it on the g2x) it has light leakage and my xoom did the same thing but it went away after a week

  • love them or hate them that’s a very impressive number, The iphone has something non tech savvy people want and crave, it’s their “precious~” people not civilized crave it while us fan boys of mobile technology cannot understand it. I mean it’s a great phone but i wouldn’t go nuts about it. There are so many better options. despite that, t-mobile see’s what the iphone can do on their network, i mean people gave up HSPA+ phones for an EDGE powered phone? WTF?! lol. AT&T knows what would happen to them should T-mobile get the iphone, thus another reason they can’t afford to lose this merger deal. AT&T knows people hate them but they love the iphone, it’s a drug and they want to be the main supplier of that drug. none-the-less, seeing the iphone on T-mobile would put a smile on face only because it would help T-mobile gain customers it very well deserves.

    • TypicalWhitePerson

      Your right, the iPhone is like a drug. Its addictive and I can’t get enough of the smoother iOS. Its eye candy as well. On top of that I have a VAIO, Macbook Pro, HP mini, PSP,  and even a iPad for all the other gizmo-agendas needed to be done. Besides, I like girls, and hot chicks like iPhones as well. I’m not a nerd and I can careless about lame guys and trying to fit in with a bunch of Android-crazed geeks who gets no action from girls and is a complete turn-off to anyone existing outside of the mobile tech world. Sometimes, ‘simple’ is sexy!

      Not to mention, PornHub runs incredibly smooth on the iPhone, via Wi-Fi  :-)

    I too am a rhapsody user.  I love iphone but there is no way I am paying itunes for each song.  I have heard (but cannot confirm myself) that the rhapsody app is a little buggy on Android.  Of course, that could change with a 2 minute update.  But I have heard the rhapsody app for iPhone is much smoother CURRENTLY.

    Manufacturers want to save that 0.1 cube cm of volume in their devices, so T-Mobile should make MicroSIM quickly!

    Happily one of the million, rocking an unlocked 3GS – going to buy a factory unlocked iP5 whenever it comes out! If it isn’t available on T-Mobile of course. Which I pray it is.

      It is not showing tmo 3g bands right now.  Sooo…it would only work on edge unless they decide to add tmo 3 g.  If Apple assumes that AT&T will get Tmo…they might not bother to add the bands for tmo.

      You will get grandfathered for the life of your contract (2 years at most).  Make the most of Tmobiles cheaper rates even if on AT&T AND then leave.  You still save money this way.

  • Coulton Vento

    True dat. They even said they would carry it if they could. Just blame it on apple.

  • Coulton Vento

    Giving T-mobile the iPhone now won’t do didley for them or do anything with the merger. Everyone who wanted a legit iPhone has already switched to AT&T or Verizon (which has way better service). The only way to stop the merger is pray. I’m kinda wanting it to, since I have crappy service when traveling. But other than that, I probably have the cheapest phone bill for 4 phones out there… So I’m not complaining.

    I’ve been pro android since day one, but maybe I should give the iPhone 4 or 5 a try. What do you think?

    • Tortionist

      If it floats your boat, go for it. Me? I like customizability. I do try different OS’s occasionally. The windows mobile 7 was interesting. Meego looks pretty cool.

      • J. Williams

        I really like WP7, a lot. I’ve never really owned the iPhone long enough to give a good review. So I might just give it a shot. Verizon has month to month I believe!

        Current phone, HTC Sensation.

        Hope the Windows mobile is good, cuz Nokia no longer is using “their” open source Symbian!  What a shock.  It wouldn’t surprise me that Nokia eventually adds some Android phones to the line up.  No reason not to, good reasons to do so.

    David, I like your blog. You do a great job. Keep it up. I am sorry as well. I was out of line as well. On a different note. Frigadroid is an idiot. I don’t think I know it all. I do know what I study and read IE: Economics(my major) Investing, Finance, smartphones( yes the bias does come out sometimes), war, etc. I was never a grunt. A grunt is an infantry soldier. I was an M1 Tanker and later Chemical on a recon/Decon team for the 19th SFG. I was right on about free trade. Frigadroid the idiot thinks the U.S. should be charging high/higher tariffs on imports, but honestly, who does anyone think pays those tariffs. The importer pays about 40%, while U.S. consumers pays about 60%. So, how are higher tariffs benefiting us? Oh wait…Their not, hence the idiotic statment of frigadroid. Economics and free trade is not white tower learning and just a bunch of theories. It is stuff that is used in everyday life. Only Frigadroid and his moronic friend would think otherwise, since they obviously know little to nothing of economics. 

    • Frigadroid

      Not finished trolling this thread yet are you? Face it loser you got served twice first by me second by david.
      My suggestion to you solider is grow up and grow a pair. Just because you can’t take being proven wrong is no reason to start making stuff up. I could care less about the name calling that’s fairly common for someone of your maturity level. Seriously keep going to school and do some research, so next time when you want to jump in to the conversation with the big boys you won’t come off as such a simpleton.

        How about you grow up? Actually I did take it from David and I apologized, something you could probably never do…loser. You still don’t understand economics and you didn’t serve me moron. You never have. Unlike you I am smart enough to choose my own battles. I don’t fight them all. I didn’t say anything in the other post because I was tired of you and your moronic friend. Neither of you know anything about economics and free trade. Your reply makes you just as immature if not more immature than you calim that I am. You haven’t 

        • Frigadroid

          LOL! Once again you open your trap and prove my point. You should quit trying so hard to convince us you are anything more than a simpleton.
          You just keep digging yourself a deeper hole, but I guess with all that practical army experience & junior college your so proud of, digging holes is something you excel at.

        • Tortionist

          I’m not proving your point and i’m not trying to convince anyone of anything other than for you to shut the hell up and get a life. As far a digging my hole deeper, i’m not. Maybe in your mind, but you’re nothing more than a moron, obviously. Also, i’m not going to a junior college. I’m going to a major university. How about you learn some manners among other things. Funny thing is, I started out being nice, but you couldn’t quit being an A-hole. So, who’s really to blame. Yes, my words with David were less than ideal. I regret that. I wasn’t trying to be a jerk, but you obviously are and you need to grow up. you don’t have to be a prick all the time. I do have respect for David. He does a great job that can’t be that easy. You on the other hand, I have no respect for. All you do is spout lies, occasionally a little truth is added in there. You’re pathetic. Unfortunately, the hours I work, a lot of the time do not allow me to answer back right away. Such is life. You have no clue as to who I am or what I excel at, so let’s not make any accusations. We can keep going like this or we can quit and try being civilized to each other. It’s up to you. The ball is in your court.

      Ya wonder why Android is winning? T-Mobile has what 30 Androids, 1 WP 7 device and no webOS devices. Sprint 20 Androids, 1 WP 7 devices and 2009 webOS devices. The only carrier that has any type of true OS competition is AT&T with a new webOS device 3 or 4 WP 7 devices and the 20 Android devices. Android has it so easy right now, when the day comes that I can pick from 20 different WP 7, 20 Different Android Phones, 1 iPhone, 3 or 4 webOS phones. That will be the day that Android really has to earn its keep. However, Fanboys on both sides just suck because they lose grip on reality.

      • Jcj1

        GEE, wonder why no webOS for t-mobile, maybe because Apple doesn’t choose to use every carriers frequencies. They prefer to limit to specific frequencies and thus limits their availability. 2G sucks, everyone knows it and just 1 million people choose to use it on their iphone with t-mobile. interesting.

      Winning?  How?  And why are you emotionally invested in this?

      iPhone has what, 40% or the market with Android at least 10% behind.  And that’s with iPhones being expensive, having a brand panache, and easily usable on only two networks, one recent at that.

      I guess I find this type of argument sophomoric and amusing.  When my Nokia 9300 died a few weeks ago, I bought a rooted Mytouch 3G Slide.  Absolutely hated the whole touchscreen thing, the stupidity of the Contacts importation (No HTC sycnching with Cyanogen I found out), etc.  Got a Nokia E90 at a great price.  Ahhhhhhh…….

      But back to the issue at hand, each to their own, dude.  If someone likes the iPhone, so what?

    I have to shake my head at you guys arguing Android vs iPhone until you’re blue in the face. Why get so worked up? Just because the iPhone is nice doesn’t mean yours is junk.
     
    Yes, Android is more open, certainly more customizable, and has plenty of other things going for it but guess what? The iPhone looks nice, is easy to use, and gets the job done. That’s all most non-techy types care about  and it fits their needs.
     
    When my 60 something year old mother’s old flip phone quit working and she expressd some interest in a smartphone, I took her to the store to check out was available and she fell in love with the iPhone. She’s been using it for 6 months now and it works great for her. That doesn’t make my G2 any less of a good phone either.
    I’m no fan of Jobs or Apple in general, but I don’t let that get in the way of realizing that they make a quality product. Grow up, people!

      Once the new refresh iPhone comes out, I’m planning on Getting it. I’m Just tired of android and I agree with the iPhone being easy to use and it get things done. Jailbreaking is much easier than rooting IMO. My vibrant Still hasn’t been rooted yet cus everytime I tried. It never worked out. :(

      Apple is a grand brand name; non tech people choose apple devices, just because it’s apple, period. Of course, theirs product have a great design, the hardware is ultra quality, and the software delivers, there is no doubt about it.  I personally prefer to combine the best of the competition: i use windows 7 desktop, a mac air notebook,  a windows 7 cellphone, and ipad 2, and yesterday i acquired a samsung tablet 10.1 (what a great device !!!!)  All those devices work great, and are very useful to me. The windows 7 phone is awesome !!!!!!

    I’ve been a very happy T-Mobile customer for 9 years, and I had an unlocked iPhone on T-Mobile until recently. Even though it wasn’t compatible with T-Mobile’s 3G/4G, I very much prefer it over bring with AT&T. I have since switched to the myTouch 4G Android phone, and I actually prefer it to the iPhone for my use (power user, productivity user), plus now I get 4G speeds, a great phone, and a great network with great customer service and customer focus.

    When we bought my unlocked iPhone 4S my husband and I went straight to our local T-Mobile store and asked the clerk about buying micro-SIM and he gave me a new SIM card and even cut it down for me. He also waited for me to set up my phone and called and texted me to make sure everything worked properly. This is why we have been with T-Mobile for 8 years and will not switch. Their customer service is stellar!
