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.

    We already knew T-Mobile wasn’t getting the iPhone since March.  The only thing to be mad at is T-Mobile doesn’t have any great new phones to offset this new iPhone for customers.  The November 2nd phones won’t cut it.  I know its a while but if you guys can wait until the AT&T/T-Mobile deal is done its gonna be the best thing you have ever seen product wise with being the #1 carrier.

    • Zifnab2k

      Yea, best thing if you want an iphone. If you want call reception its going to be a nightmare.

      • BP

        I agree on call reception.  They keep saying its going to be better but they will have to show us first.

      What are you crazy, T-Mobile has a list of top of the line phones that IMO blows the I-Phone away.

    I’m still rocking my G2 and I love it so I probably wouldn’t pick up an iPhone but I would like to see one come to T-Mobile. It’s in both companies’ best interests to offer it so they should work together to make it happen.

  • Jays_on

    I don’t think they mentioned if 4s was going to be sold unlocked? If so being a world phone maybe it will work??

    Rocking your G2. Are you kidding me!! That POS. I am on my 5th!!

    Why do you think they have kept in around in retirement. The warehouse it full.

    First to get updates. Yeah.

    This phone will be on tmo less than a month after intro.

    By the way, the iphone5 was delayed do to production issues. 

    • jarjon76

      There’s nothing wrong with the G2. I’m not sure I buy your “I’m on my 5th story”, unless it’s one of those examples of user error who’s trying to blame the phone.

      • Zifnab2k

        I totally believe him. I personally returned 3 and made the T-Mobile Manager at the store open 18 other boxes in front of me. All 21 were sent back… now this was back in April when it came out, but I doubt its gotten any better.

      Nope not kidding at all. My original G2 has been going strong and I have no intentions of getting rid of it. The only thing is that it’s kind of peeling away on the back cover but that’s okay I think it looks better without it.

    No, because I’m not an iphone fan and I’m very happy with my Sensation. However, I would like to see it come to T-Mobile because it’s in the best interest of the consumer and T-Mobile. I say bring it on.

      oh you forgot the much weaker battery and 256 mb ram compared to the 1 gig found on android phones definately nothing to talk about the iphone 4s is supposed to boast the latest tech apple has which is a 1530 mAH Li-on battery compared to the GSII 1850 mAH or the bigger screens notice how apple conveniently left these “little” details out on thier spec chart?

      • 21stNow

        I’m not an iPhone fanatic; I actually prefer Android.  However, I have to give it to Apple on battery life.  Apple doesn’t need the ultra-high capacity batteries in iPhones because iOS uses the battery more efficiently that Android does. 

        While using the phones, battery drainage is similar between an iPhone and an Android phone.  However, when both phones are idle, an Android phone will use its battery much faster than an iPhone. Android has many background tasks that don’t shut off properly when the phone is in standby.  This is why task killers became so popular for Android.  However, task killers are almost unheard of for iOS.  If the users shuts down a task on an iPhone, it doesn’t magically start up again, like it can in Android.

    With the specs of the new iPhone 4S, I’ll pass.  

  • DRO1D

    iPhone was at one time a game-changer. The iPhone 4S is the perfect example of how they are running out of ideas of their own. All these “top secret ground-breaking” advances can be found on current top-end Android phones. Even Steve Jobs bailed off that sinking ship.

    • Littlesis1774

      that does not prove a thing about Apple.

  • Guest

    Looks like the miracle didn’t happen. Hell, there wasn’t even an iPhone 5, just a 4s. The real question now is, would TMobile get the iPhone 5 (most likely next year) along with all the other carriers? Or will it disappoint once again?

    • Littlesis1774

      Now thinking back I don’t remember any mention of iphone 5 back March. I think people including myself jumped the gun and just assume it was the iphone 5. Now thinking of it back when the rumors about iphone being tested on T-mobile I think Apple stated iphone 4s not iphone 5

  • fsured

    Apple chooses who they want to sell their products to.  It’s foolish to really believe that TMO doesn’t want this phone or didn’t try to get it in their handset offerings knowing the huge demand for it.

    What would be nice is for the company to once again say publicly that they expressed their interest to sell the product and Apple said no.  Put the blame on Apple publicly to help put out the wild fire that can happen.  Let Apple explain to the TMO customers why they think their service provider doesn’t qualify to sell their products.

    • Littlesis1774

      To be completely honest with you I don’t think it was Apple. Apple always said that their phones on all networks. One kinda way it is because T-Mobiles in Europe all have the iphone not to mention ipad 2 just T-mobile USA that don’t. T-mobile was stupid with their stupid commercials making fun of the iphone which probably turn Apple off T-mobile USA. T-mobile USA never once took a interest on the phone even after admitting that over one million customers are iphone users. I can tell you that T-mobile has no chance of competing against Sprint, Verizon and AT&T. Sprint and Verizon will have to lower their prices in order gain very disappointed T-mobile customers who will probably pay the early termination fees. As of right now their only competition is probably Metro PCS or Boast Mobile.

      • Ov3rl0rdl

        The Tmo in Europe runs on the same bands as ATT does in the States if I remember correctly. So to integrate over there should be effortless for Apple. If I am wrong, please correct me.

  • Flashy4bb

    guys, all the specs on this phone have already been seen. right now, apple is playing catch up. I will never stress out over an iphone. if it comes to tmobile, it will be another one in the basket. like the CMO said, it is up to apple. If apple is against magenta for the ads against att, they should understand it is all about business. one thing i know for sure is that tmobile will carry the iphone soon or later. Guys, just be patient.

  • Bennyto7

    I’m very happy with my g2x, smooth, fast, shinny, portable hot spot, everything you need in the palm of my hand. I have an ipad 2 wifi and I surf on the web faster with my g2x as a modem than the ipad 2 3g. My friend has an iphone and he can’t use it as a modem. Too bad.

  • News

    I read through the press release on the 4s. The big news is the lower priced 3gs (free with contract) for the masses. That should bring in quite a few subs who wouldn’t pay the big bucks for a recognized smart phone. It’s hard to stop such momentum, and maybe that’s why Google bought Moto.

    As far as AWS, won’t the 4s be on some carrier with these frequencies? I wouldn’t pay $600 for any unlocked phone, but I bet some of the iPhone users on T might, especially with the new $30 Wal-Mart “unlimited” data plans and HSPA+.

  • My2Cents

    No Iphone for me thanks.  The screen is just too small and they’re are running behind with their HSPA+ 14.4.  Carriers are moving on to 21 and 42.  Plus I though it was hilarious that my sister was asking how to use Gmail on her Iphone.  Just cut out the middle man and go direct I say.

    I would buy it instantly, and am so sick of waiting it is not even funny. I hate how Apple will build GSM and CDMA into a phone, but not the 1700MhZ BAND! IT FRUSTRATES ME TO NO END! I want an iPhone so bad, but I am not giving up 3G to purchase an unlocked one, and sure as hell not giving up my amazing T-Mobile plan for AT&T, Sprint, or Verizon.

    • macman37

      Blame the Federal Communications Commission {FCC} for taking a long time in saying, “AT&T will not be permitted to acquire and use T-Mobile’s frequency bands to expand their future 4G LTE service.”  The sooner they deny this acquisition, the sooner Apple gets a CLEAR green light to build an iPhone that includes T-Mobile’s frequency bands {ex: 1700 AWS}.  Until then, T-Mobile USA, their subscribers, and their shareholders suffer as most people who want an iPhone leave for another wireless carrier.
