T-Mobile iPhone Will Be Announced At Tomorrow’s Event According To CNET


CNET is reporting today, March 25th, that our favorite carrier will be announcing the T-Mobile iPhone at tomorrow’s “Uncarrier” event. Although it won’t say where it got its information or even mentioned an unnamed source, the publication is convinced it’s happening.

The handset will allegedly feature alongside a couple of other hot LTE capable smartphones:

“Lastly, the iPhone 5, with its LTE capabilities, will be a showcase product for T-Mobile’s 4G LTE network, which is expected to officially launch tomorrow. Other devices such as the BlackBerry Z10, which launches tomorrow, and the recently LTE-upgraded Galaxy Note 2, will also figure prominently in its LTE push.”

I guess we’ll find out whether or not this rumor has any validity by this time tomorrow. The big news for us here is that we’re finally getting the iPhone. Officially. Possibly.

If the T-Mobile iPhone is launched tomorrow, will you be buying it?

    Won’t this kill the tethering feature on the iPhone? Because people are able to tether without limits if you have unlimited data. It also doesn’t bring you to that upsell page. I’m guessing it will kill tethering since T-Mobile will be an official iPhone carrier.

      Sadly, not gonna happen. Apple would probably never announce a new flagship phone at someone else’s event.

  • PiotrButkiewicz

    I’d get an iPhone 4 if possible for my mum. She’s still learning and it’ll still be almost too much tech for her, but gotta have that wifi calling.

  • Jose Hernandez

    No way in Hell would I ever buy an iPhone. But I am happy that T-Mobile finally has this on their lineup. Now some customers can stay or maybe even come back to T-Mobile because now we do have the i stuff.

  • Kendric Mercado

    I have a Nexus 4 and do you think that T-Mobile might send a Update to enable LTE ?

  • NYCTheBronx

    Yes. Will this be Live Stream onbYouTube? This is a very huge event tomorrow for T-Mobile. 4GvLTE rolling out, 4G LTE connectivity update, 4G LTE phones coming out soon for T-Mobile which is the Blackberry Z10 tomorrow, rumored phones coming to T-Mobile this year, no more subsidies, no more contracts, T-Mobile moves as a Uncarrier now and finally T-Mobile’s first 4GvLTE mobile hotpspot, Sonic 2.0 4G LTE coming out tomorrow. Plus new value plans. You got anything to say to that Verizon, AT&T and Sprint? T-Mobile owns 2013. :D

      • NYCTheBronx

        What abeautiful day indeed. :) Check out my YouTube channel if you have time. YouTube/NYCTheBronx Going to do Speedtests here in San Jose with T-Mobile’s new 4G LTE today! =)

    • NYCTheBronx

      And we get news for the IPhone 5 from T-Mobile tomorrow.

  • usethefish

    What about lumia catwalk news? Any at this event?

    • sidekicker89

      I told David about the catwalk awhile back. Not sure if there is any new news yet.

  • Ray

    How are they announcing the iPhone when a large portion of T-Mobile iPhones are still on Edge including mine?

    • sloanie

      They’ve been promoting the iPhone for months (a la “bring your own”, etc). But I see your point… someone buying a phone in a T-Mobile store will expect it to work on their high speed network.

    • adeedew

      Yup pretty ambitious

    • trife

      Yep. While I’m glad we’re finally getting the iPhone, it really is bad business if they sell them in areas with no LTE or 1900 MHz band support. Unless of course they’re upfront about the gaping coverage holes.

  • Nearmsp

    People should not get overly excited about iPhone 5 for T-mobile. Their PCS coverage is not even half as good as their AWS coverage. I bought one in November for use in Minneapolis suburbs. After a frustrating 6 weeks, I out it away. During my several attempts at reinserting the nano SIM card and carrier in my SGS2, I damaged the SIM seating in my SGS2. I am yet to go back to my iPhone 5. The LTE towers are even less. In my opinion, T-Mobile is still a ways away from prime time.

  • sloanie

    Probably won’t be buying it, especially if the next version (5S or whatever it ends up being) is just a few months out from April. (July/August-ish, supposedly). Currently using a 4S… but we’ll see.

  • Guest17

    I’ve been holding out hope that flipping the LTE switch will bring along at least some improved PCS coverage. I’m on Edge three quarters of the day in NYC.

  • Trevnerdio

    It won’t be launched tomorrow, the network isn’t ready for it.

    • Get_at_Me

      What do you mean the network isn’t ready for it? HSPA+ is still the backbone of both TMO and ATTs data networks. I’m guessing it’ll be 21mbps capable on HSPA+ until LTE goes live…..Unless you’re talking about the state of TMO’s refarming efforts

      • Trevnerdio

        Well yes, but even HSPA+ band II is very sparse…just read your edit, yes, that’s what I mean

  • http://www.jmillionnyc.com/ Jason Million

    iPhone definitely wont be launched tomorrow. But there will be announcements with it, Maybe even like LTE iPads too

  • yo yo

    We have an ALL hands day in April 4/11-4/14

  • natebinsf

    Iphone 4s user. I get 3G half the time in SF and just got back from NYC and had 3g half the time. What was weird was one day att 4g popped up in nyc for a few min but i couldn’t use my phone. I’ve also been in vegas recently and had 3g 75% of the time, almost everywhere i went accept inside the casinos.

  • Richard Yarrell

    Definitely could care less about any iphone on tmobile. But I understand from a business strategy what tmobile has to do. Tmobile 2013 will be great let’s get that LTE up and running in New York City.

    • http://www.jmillionnyc.com/ Jason Million

      yea most definitely. i dont care for the iPhone as any subscriber thats on T-Mob but i can see its something they need to have

    • Guest

      How much less could you care?

    • NYCTheBronx

      Me too. Not much of an Iphone fan but it’s great to see T-Mobile finally talking about and selling the Iphone 5 soon. Plus other Apple products. But I may possibly get an Iphone 5. Possibly.

  • sincarafan247

    I just want the darn newer SG3 Lte to be released already. lol

  • GalaxyNut55

    TMobile just launched LTE tonight 9pm eastren. Im hitting 20 down 18 up right now. Unreal speeds.

    • natebinsf

      I’m on an iphone 4s, what are you on? Also, did you do anything special to your settings?

      • Guest

        The 4S doesn’t have LTE.

    • CPPCrispy


    • NYCTheBronx

      18 up? That is insane! Wooot! :D What State and Coty mate?

  • Dwain Mars

    I’m wondering if the iPhone will support all tmobile bands. If not then I don’t see the point. There will be many unhappy customers.

    • NYCTheBronx

      Possibly T-Mobile will make a deal with Apple and they can make a special T-Mobile variant Iphone that will support all of T-Mobile’s bands.

    • Get_at_Me

      refarmed TMO bands are identical to ATT bands

  • http://about.me/daylondeon Deacon

    I wouldn’t buy it but that would be huge for TMO …

  • bojangles

    I won’t buy the iPhone (I have an HTC One fund almost complete) but I will be more than happy to collect that commission money selling it! Very excited for my beloved company. I BLEED MAGENTA

  • TMoFan

    This would be unusual as Apple likes to do the unveiling. I won’t be getting it but anything that makes TMo stronger I’m in favor of.

    • Get_at_Me

      agreed, but this is the first time that a major US carrier is selling an iphone outside of a “new device launch”…someone correct me if im wrong…..at the same time, it would be odd of Apple to go out of its way to announce/launch a T-Mobile iphone..

  • jake


    • Alan713

      unlocked iphone has been available for quite a while.

      • taron19119

        Yeah but the unlocked iphone don’t run hspa+ in the aws band just the pcs band T-Mobile iphone is going to run hspa+ in the pcs and aws band

  • Jon Wilkinson

    The iPhone 4/4s and 5 are listed on T Mobile website! Go see!

    • Saad Akhtar

      do you have a link, I can’t find it.

    • just me

      Lol link or it didn’t happen

  • mdosu

    4G LTE note 2 reporting in on March 25, finally

    • MATT C


      • mdosu

        Can I get a woot woot!?

  • James

    Damn it! I just got the AT&T version! :(

    • techymexican

      if I am not mistaken, the AT&T version will be compatible with T-Mobile’s LTE unlike the Verizon iPhone.

  • emcdonald75

    I wish on tomorrow T-mobile will announce an EDGE BE GONE Program. Stating that they will upgrade all of their towers to HSPA+/LTE. NO MORE OF THAT SLOW 2G EDGE NETWORK.

    • CPPCrispy

      Please please please let this happen!

      • emcdonald75

        I know right!

    • Gordon Shumway

      But if they do that I won’t be able to put my phone in 2G mode and enjoy days of standby time without needing a charge, or when connected to a wifi network and have no need to waste battery on 4G.

      • emcdonald75

        Change is inevitable. As phones become technologically smarter, faster and more efficient, so must the networks they operate on.

    • M42

      Yes, and that will be completed in 2090. Meanwhile, enjoy your painfully slow EDGE data speeds.

  • Joanna90

    Can anyone help me ?? I have tmobile a galaxy s3 on tmobiles prepaid 70 dollar plan with 5 gigs of data. If i were to ever buy an iPhone which i doubt i will lol but if i ever were to get one and im on an tmobile lte area will i get LTE? Even if im on a tmobile prepaid plan? Reasons im asking is cuz when i bought my s3 with the prepaid plan people wud always be telling me that tmobile prepaid dnt get the same data speeds post paid customers get. But i noticed tht what people told me was not true i get up to 20 mbps on.tmobile prepaid the same my friends on tmobile postpaid get. So my question is if i were to put my sim card on a tmobile iPhone if they ever do end up getting one or another tmobile LTE capable phone and im on a tmobile LTE area will it still be able to get LTE data speeds even tho im on there 70 dollar prepaid plan?? Thnks

  • MATT C


  • JayMoney

    …its not launching tomorrow…guaranteed…seeing as how I work there and we got blackberrys today but no “mystery” iPhone in our shipments

    • http://tmonews.com David

      I didn’t say it was launching tomorrow?!

  • James

    The iPhone won’t be a official carrier til the iPhone 5s or iPhone 6 at the latest

  • taron19119

    This make since T-Mobile ceo said 3 to 4 months at ces

  • taron19119

    My question is will T Mobile’s iPhone hspa+ in the aws band or jus the pcs band

    • http://www.facebook.com/robertcccc2 Robert Cole

      Hopefully both.

  • NYCTheBronx

    Can someone please explain to me what the heck is PCS band?

  • thunder

    I think the most exciting news that could come from tmobile is that they are getting rid of all EDGE and replacing it with 4g.

  • Store Rep

    With this new CNET tidbit, this mysterious display unit getting installed in stores this week PLUS the news of an early April blackout period, I’m convinced that it is FINALLY the iPhone! Still sticking with my Note 2, however, it is a beautiful thing to no longer have to lament the fact we don’t have it.

    Also, with these new UNCARRIER plans, Magenta is poised to smack Sprint out of that 3rd spot and eventually threaten the Big 2 to start making some changes. Good job, John and Jim.

  • http://www.facebook.com/albe.bach.7 Albe Bach

    t mobile have very deceptive practices.. they told me i was getting a free phone and now i find out that its $700!! and ive been a loyal customer. Never again T-Mobile!! Everyone watch out for this company because theyre scraping the bottom of the barrel so theyre out to get your money anyway they can. Watch out!

  • SurgicalTech

    why would you want to downgrade to a iphone?

  • Mirad77

    Whatever will keep our beloved T-Mobile going is fine for me. LTE baby, bring it on……….

  • M42

    Who cares about the outdated iFart. Replace your outdated Edge network!

  • S. Ali

    No they won’t, its the Blackberry Z10

    • thepanttherlady

      Announced. ;)

  • Whitney

    I can’t wait and edge doesn’t bother me anyway. In my house I get like one or 2 bars of signal anyway. I mainly use wifi when am in my house anyway. I am not planning on staying in my state anyway. Hopefully in a few years I might moved to New York or Los Angeles

  • marco
  • Rick Rudge

    I’m still good with my present iPhone 4 on T-Mobile, thanks. But, I love that T-Mobile is bringing in the iPhone 5, as well as the Blackberry Z10. And the re-farming HSPA+ is coming along nicely, as well as the LTE development. Good work, T-Mobile!
