If A Miracle Happened, Would You Buy A T-Mobile iPhone?

With the Apple announcement taking place in a little over an hour I’m going to make this post short, sweet and simple. If a miracle were to happen and T-Mobile were to receive an iPhone in the very near future would you buy it? All of the signs point toward today being an uneventful day in T-Mobile land but if the opposite were to happen, how would you react? Take the poll below and prepare to find out in just over an hour.

      T-Mobile will probably get some CPU downgraded version of the iPhone (if they ever got it) just so they could get the 42Mbps.

    I would buy it ASAP. I really hope they sell it unlocked alongside the carrier release, and that it supports AWS.

  • Leo

    Sure I will buy.

    If they were to announce the iphone to T-Mobile & will release it next week… then i’ll stay with t-mobile, otherwise i’m out! yayyy! exciting.

  • Adam

    If it was announced I would buy one. That being said it is highly unlikely given the remarks from Tmobile themselves. Also the fact that every single thing that has been leaked has been from at&t and sprint doesnt really help the cause either. So unless Tmobile is really good at keeping secrets we wont be getting an iphone. 

    Next week should be interesting as well with the new nexus.

    That would be a huge miracle. However, if people want an iPhone with T-Mobile, the bright side is that you can do this with an unlocked iPhone :).

          I’ve been a BlackBerry user since the Motorola Q.  I’ve had all of the iPhones and some Android devices for application development, which I kept as 2nd phones along side my BlackBerry.  You could never get me to replace my BlackBerry with any of those phones.  My iPhone 4 sits in the bottom of a crate somewhere.

    Apple just announced that the iphone 4s is a world phone does that mean it can work on Tmobile?

    • ItsMichaelNotMike

      Well it is the dual phone (GSM and CDMA) we have talked about in here from time to time, something some people said was not possible. So Apple showed them. LOL

        Except the original BB Storm supported GSM/CDMA in one device a few years back. It’s nothing new

      Any GSM iPhone will “work” with T-Mobile.

        So, if I would get my hands on the iPhone 4S, I would be able to use the 3G or 4G network???  I know the iPhone 3GS would only use the 2G (Edge).

          ya i want to use 3g since its  a world phone i would assume it has all the bands for GSM and CDMA so is the iphone a quad band pone?

      Apple still isn’t supporting the 1700MHz frequency needed for T-Mobile 3G.

    Sounds like iPhone 5 didn’t make the keynote (unless they’re saving it for after the iPhone 4S).

    • ItsMichaelNotMike

      Well I think the iPhone 5 might be separately announced as a Sprint exclusive, on another day?

  • 785rio

    hell oh no.

  • W3m1975

    Tom Cook is worse then Jobs he has been talking for an hour and no major announcements just a bunch of apple ego stroking. Where is this announcement? I have had 3 horrible experiences with apple customer service so the answer will still be no unless t-mobile is supporting the devices themselves.

  • ItsMichaelNotMike

    Carriers announced, for US:

    “In the US it’ll be Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint.”

    No T-Mobile miracle guys.

    • Mopar6464

      Now watch the mass exit of T-Mobile customers to Sprint.
      Not much more than what their paying now and will get the iphone with true unlimited data.
      And  watch some customers leave AT&T and Verizon as well since Sprint will still be cheaper than the others with true unlimted data use.
      And I really don’t care for Sprint either , just saying.
      T-Mobile is sinking ship anyways.

    I already have a factory unlocked iPhone 3GS on T-Mobile.

    I’ll very likely get an unlocked iPhone 4S eventually.

    I’m calling sprint tonight.  Been with T-Mobile since Bush’s first term.  Unless Sprints plans for the iPhone are insanely high, I am taking my two lines and leaving.  Not just for the iPhone, but because T-Mobile is heading into the waiting arms of At&t now, and there are no signs of T-Mobile getting the iPhone any time soon.  I’m not a fanboy, but I do like technology.  And that phone is the best all-around phone technology out right now, and this time next year the iPhone will probably make another huge leap.  If I thought t-mobile would get added for the next iPhone that came out, I would stay.  But all signs (to me) point toward t-mobile going away.  R.I.P. T-Mobile.

    They should just let the ATT merger happen. T-Mobile seems like they aren’t even trying. “let’s have a conversation to try and get people from switching”.

    • Mopar6464

      With the acquisition still on the table to be decided , that very well may be the reason T-Mobile is not getting the iphone.
      If they did , AT&T customers would jump ship to T-Mobile and save half the monthly costs on their plan knowing they will get to keep the deal if the AT&T Buy-Out is approved.
      People on AT&T and locked into a contract will complain about having to pay twice as much a month for the same AT&T service.

      When are you guys gonna learn that it’s not about specs, but instead the user experience. Most of the people out there using smartphones are not tech geeks who know how to root and flash custom ROMs, etc. Say what you will about Apple, but their products work well (aside from a few hiccups here and there – e.g., antennagate).

      T-Mobile is going down like the Titanic. It’s gotten to the point that any carrier that doesn’t offer the iPhone is like a car without music player. Sorry, it is what it is.

      And this is coming from a guy with a Samsung Vibrant, a phone that I really like. However, my next phone will be the iPhone 5 or 6, whether ti’s on T-MO or not. I really hope that T-MO gets its head out of its @$$, but I have absolutely no confidence in their leadership anymore. Heck, they’re practically begging AT&T to buy them!

    I can’t lie, I don’t plan on buying an iPhone in the near future but just being a lover of all things tech I had high hopes for this keynote today but seriously..what a disappointment! I know common consumers will look at this and think I’m a Apple hater which I am not at all, all I buy are Mac products computer-wise but the tech geeks like me reading this (whether an Apple fan or Apple hater) has to agree with me..iPhone 4s is just an iPhone 4 with new features(some not even useful..I mean that card app?! seriuosly?), a new chip(which was actually the one bright spot of the whole keynote) and a new carrier but still the same phone with the same decade old technology.

    I was expecting an iPhone 5 announcement too, what a let down today. oh well Google and Samsung have their turn on Oct 11th I’ll be interested to see what they bring to the table – I actually have plans of buying the Nexus.

  • Youngt82

    Haha lmao well all I can do is laugh at the iPhone Android haters because out of all the hype about the new iPhone its only an upgrade to the iPhone 4 but its 4S with an upgrade inside and the other news is that Sprint will be getting it. So haha guess people will be moving onto Android alot more now and the Nexus Prime will kill the iPhone 4S I guess until maybe next year when they might announce the iPhone 5 :p

    So my vote is definitely is a NO because I am a commited player to the Android team:)

      The i4S can’t possible do as well as the iP4 did cuz the average Joe don’t give a S**t that it now  has a dual core cpu in it.  There’s nothing new about it aside from that that would appeal to the masses so yeah, Android will continue to grow while iOS simmers a lil bit for the rest of the year.

      I could imagine at least half of iPhone buyers wanted a bigger screen finally.Question is, where is the iPhone 5?

    ofcourse there is no iphone for tmobile att probably lobbied apple to keep it from tmobile so they can go to the govt and say look tmobile keeps loosing customers if this keeps up they will need to go bankrupt. they know if tmobile had the iphone equipped with an 80$ unlimited plan and the not as strict credit requirements tmobile might of lead the way in iphone sales

    I think Apple still have an ace up its sleeve..they wonna have the last word on this. My guess is they will release an iPhone 5 after Google release their monster ICS Nexus. Probably it maybe due to strategy or assembly problems that’s why we did not see an iPhone 5 today. But i think there is an iPhone 5 still in production to be released by Xmas holiday or early next year…time will tell.

    • J-Hop2o6

      They just announced iP4S, what else can they add w/o totally changing iOS? They only thing I see is atleast a 4″ screen, and thats about it.. the start of the downfall of iPhone?

  • Bhaynes9

    it would depend on whether it was the iPhone 5 or not. i don’t know who is going to pay that much for an iPhone 4S for two years while they wait for the next iPhone 5 in 6 months if not sooner.
