Analyst Says Next iPhone Will Be Called iPhone “4S,” Coming To T-Mobile

It’s been a little over three weeks since our lastiPhone coming to T-Mobile” post so we’re overdue for some rumors news. According to Jefferies Analyst Peter Misek,  the next iPhone will be called the iPhone “4S” and not iPhone 5. Whatever the name is the next iPhone will “include minor cosmetic changes, better cameras, A5 dual-core processor and HSPA+ support.”

Misek goes on to say that Apple had hoped to add chips for 4G networks but the chipsets weren’t ready in time for the start of production. As such, the next iPhone will be a minor update with iPhone 5 coming at a later date and introducing 4G chipsets.

Misek believes that the next iPhone will work with Sprint, T-Mobile and China Mobile.

Sign me up. Sorry Android fans, I’m still an iPhone user. Of course as with all analyst claims take with a grain of salt.

     Why is Apple releasing this ‘iPhone 4s’ and then an iPhone 5 so close together?

    • Scarf22

      I did not see anything about the iphone 5, nor a release date for the rumored iphone 4s or iphone 5.  I don’t get your question.  Can you clarify?  Thanks.

      • ZeroD00d

        Sorry, screwed up my statement. I guess I should say more of a ‘rumor’. I can’t remember exactly where I read this article at, I wanna say it was either Engadget or Techi, but it said that Apple is supposedly releasing a second version of the iPhone 4 (some upgrades, a better chip, overall make it better and faster) sometime later this year, and then release the newer iPhone sometime in the first quarter of 2012 (totally new design, even faster)?

      Sorry dude,, you’re coming down with the iSheep epidemic.. The worst side effect is choosing a shitty iPhone over a super Android device.. Doctor would suggest an Sensation to rid the grubbiness of stage 1 iSheep and get you into a great Android phone:))

      • Doctor will also suggest one pill named “stopthinkingAndroidisaonesizefitsallsolution” and call me in the morning.

      • yeah and I guess you will enjoy the insurmountable lag, the huge rom size on the htc, the shiny animations that do absolutely nothing and the horrid battery life. Oh btw how’s the whole unoptimized OS working for the dual core? pretty good right?

        Android is the new sheep and it is aggrivating. It is worse than the windows mobile people that used to say it could do anything when in fact it was extremely limited…and overly fragmented

       I think you’d be surprised at just how many people are running unlocked iPhones on TMo. The Asurion packet that I got in the mail the other day even had a special disclaimer saying they do not cover iPhones on T-Mobile so I think it’s a pretty big deal.

     If all of you wanted an iphone so bad, why don’t you already have one? Remember,two carriers already offer them.

    • Chatter

      I would imagine that many people do not want to pay the higher prices at those carriers. There likely are many Sprint folks too in the same boat. An extra $20-$30 is a sizeable amount for some.

    • jarjon76

      Apple did a great job of marketing the iphone to the point where the average consumer thinks it’s the creme of the crop of phones. I applaud them for that, but that doesn’t diminish the fact the iphone is an average smartphone. The only thing is does well is dumbing it down for the non geek, which is a great thing. They’re are far better options out there.

  • nerdlust

    Hopefully tmob gets iphone for people who want them but its to late for me. I used to love my bb8900 and my 32gig ipod touch perfect combo. But last month my cousin gave me a cliq2 when my berry broke, pressure crack. Flash in browser is sick! If iphone on tmob would have came out in 2010 I might have tried it but I can’t go back to web without flash. No flash no sell.

    Jobs and apple are jealous and greedy. they see that android is on the rise being available on all carriers and their dumbasses was limited to atnt(now verizon too) in the us. go figure.

    • ATL Guy

       “jealous”. Of what? NOT ONE SINGLE ANDROID PHONE has outsold THE 1 SINGLE IPHONE. 
      “greedy” How so? If you mean growing his company and bettering the lives of his employees, shareholders and others that is called the living the American dream. 
      Sorry buddy dont hate the player…

      • jarjon76

        When you’re finished swinging from Jobs’ nutsack, I’ll think about giving what you have to say credence. 

      • DetroitTechnoFan

         Not one single Android phone has outsold the iphone, but the whole gamut of Android phones IS outselling the iphone. Android isn’t simply a one size fits all offering. You can get your phone with a keyboard or without. You can get it from Motorola or Samsung, or HTC or whatever company makes one, along with their added skins, etc…

        Still, if there was anything that would make me more likely to actually pick up an iphone, this is it!

  • Fcukiphone

    Android all day ftw

  • James O

    Yes competition is good, but this might be a little scary knowing that Apple wants a piece of the market share in every single carrier.  Like him or not, Steve Jobs is a smart businessman who will make TONS of money off of this…

    And don’t forget, this is a rumor.  The iPhone 3G was supposed to come to Sprint and T-Mobile, so I would be careful linking HSPA+ with T-Mobile.  The words “reportedly”, “rumored”, “alleged”, and “speculate” are big flags in these T-Mo iPhone articles.

    On a positive note, an A5 dual-core proc iPhone running on LTE would be sweeeet (just wishing here)

    • Tito!

      & with what battery technology will you run that LTE network?
      I believe iPhones have the best battery life, but even they probably can’t withhold LTE.
      I honestly don’t get the hype about LTE .
      I rather prefer a juiced up HSPA+ network to it’s max, then a technology that’s way too immature for release. :)

      • James O

        Yeah the rumors have it that it won’t do LTE at all (hardware won’t support it) and I doubt Apple would release a product that dies after 4 hours of use (remember how the antenna scandal hurt their PR?)

      • Tortionist

        Actually, the I phone doesn’t have the best battery life. LG smartphones tend to have a much better battery life, especially the LG Optimus T. My wife has it and the dang battery lasts for more than 3 full days with moderate usage. 

  • Tito!

    So, still think this AT&T merger should happen iPhone faithfuls? I didn’t think so. T-Mobile FTW!
    So when we get the iPhone we’ll more then likely steal a great chunk of their customers (:

    • jarjon76

      Not really, but I like your positive attitude. This will help T-Mobile now, but it won’t greatly affect AT&T’s sales. 

  • I know this will sound horrible, and I am a 100% android fan, but maybe this will do good for T-Mobile. Bring in more sheep to heard and some more cash to prove they are a competitor.

    What I will hate with a passion is all the iPhone sheep dissing the other phone offerings, or other non informed people. I really hate ignorance at that level. . .Anyways I hope that if this comes becomes true, T-Mobile will stay classy and still love android. As well as not undermining it.

    • Anonymous

      something have always believed is that the iphone on tmobile would be a good thing even though I would never get one. and this is coming from a current iphone and android user. not only do I simply like android better but the iphone wouldn’t be a locked down system that forces me to use itunes every time I want to add or remove something.

     Being a Android nut I would absolutely love to see the I-phone come to T-Mobile. Maybe, just maybe this is the shot in the ass T-Mobile needs to push itself over the hill. Just hope it ain’t too late.

    I think the guy acts like a douchebag but he protects his brand like no other. 

    • jarjon76

      Rather, people that hate the iphone do so because it’s an overrated phone. How you decided people who hate the iphone are jealous of Jobs is grasping on your part. You’re either over analyzing or trying to troll. 

      I don’t like the iphone, but I’m ok with it being available for those who want it. I don’t care for Samsung phones, either, but I have no problem with them being available for those who want a Samsung device. I’m all for having as many options as possible for the consumer.

  • Titadab05

     If they can get 6 billion dollars AND add the iPhone 4S, that’s all great news for T-Mobile.  They just need the FCC to make up their minds quickly!

    This is all good news, but no matter what phones they get, it’s all moot if the consumer is concerned about the future because of the merger and the uncertainty that comes with it at this point.

  • Muxmarine

    Don’t want to remove your battery? No problem! Want to pay Apple for tech support? You got it!

Order within the next five minutes and you’ll also NOT be allowed to unlock the phone! All for the low, low price of $199 plus all the Apple MobileProtect BS included!

    No thank you. I’ll stick with something that actually doesn’t suck.

    • I work at VZW and dread the iPhone calls. Why call AppleCare when they can just call us for help? And many of them are very arrogant and snooty compared to the other users like Android. They get more annoyed and frustrated when their precious phone doesn’t work. Ugh.

      • Respawn

        I work for AT&T as a manager so I’m in the same boat you are. Why the hell would I want to put T-Mobile through that?

        And yes, the iPhone customers are generally more douchey. I say “douchey” because I fail to come up with a better term for people who treat my agents like trash, when they themselves are trash and think they’re all that because of their shiny idiotPhone.

        “Hooray for my $11.99 insurance I was dumb enough to not know about until after my 30 day enrollment period. It’s all AT&T/Verizon’s/Obama’s fault! And now I can’t download the app after 30 days. Waaaah!”

        Maybe Apple should start their own network so they can take all that with them. The great iPhone customers don’t call in nearly as often as the douchey iPhone customers. It’s part of the job now.

        • Chris

          What are you griping about? You have the sweetest job in the world. An AT&T manager NEVER has to get on the phone…

          And maybe things would be better if your people’s actions even remotely resembled actual customer service.

          AT&T is terrible, top to bottom, and you know it.

  • Nearmsp

     This is another  one of those false stories being put out to prop T-mobile.  As per Wall Street Journal, T-mobile USA lost 471,000 customers in the first quarter. Sprint gained 253,000 new customers. After over 7 years of happy T-mobile customer I too am looking at moving. I want to go for an iphone with Verizon, but they don’t have international version of the phone (Dual CDMA-GSM). Having experienced lousy customer service at AT&T I have no plans to go back to them under any circumstances. IF t-mobile gets the iphone 4S by July, I will renew my contract at current rates for an iphone. With a contract signed for 2 years, I will protected for 2 years from evil AT&T. Though frankly much as I would like to believe this story, I don’t believe it because this thing about T-mobile getting an iphone has been floating since the last 18 months. I don’t see that happening until AT&T takes over. This put out to stop the monthly bleeding of customers from T-mobile to Verizon and Sprint.

  • Ajax

    If Tmobile gets the iphone 4s hspa+
    – $3 billion cash
    – some aws spectrums (£2 billion)
    – roaming agreement ($1 billion)
    This might solve all the problems Tmobile is facing In short term. And in long term it should put smile on CEO of tmobile when they lose count of all the new customers they will take away from AT&T and verizon.

    •  I agree. If T-Mobile gets this phone AND the $6 Billion ( if the deal is a bust), this will be a very good year for them. You might see T-Mobile move from #4 to #3 by 2013.

    • Aerofanbig

      If the deal fails, DT is going to bank the 3bil, and still sell off Tmo piece by piece. They are very straight forward in saying they don’t want anything to do with Tmo USA anymore. It won’t solve any short, long or middle term problems. All it will do is create more issues of who is being sold to who.

    It’s retarded to use the iphone on T-Mobile’s network. Just switch to AT&T or Verizon, don’t be stupid and cripple yourself to EDGE.

      • Aerofanbig

         you realize what he means is that, to use an iPhail on TMO network, you hack the phone and it runs on EDGE, NOT 3 or 4 G. It will be the same with this phone, and the 5 if/when it comes out. If it is not directly sold and radio’d to TMO networks, you have to unlock it and run on TMO’s EDGE network

    • k-mack

      i think the article is talking about an iPhone that could run on T-Mobile’s 4G network, buddy.  try to keep up, here!…

  • Mtnman

     I’m in the boot as to saying “Let T-Mobile get the iPhone” After all it will increase the number of subscribers to T-Mobile. This just gives a variety to the company. You’ll have a choice of either a Non-Android, Android, Blackberry, Window’s and iPhone device. This is what competition is all about, if you don’t like it; you have several other choices to choose from. 

    Competition and choice is what the Free-Market is all about, and letting the customer choose what phone suites their needs and wants. And if T-Mobile is able to get the iPhone and is able to have a 4G version on it, just imagine the speeds on it? I’m quite sure it will have a duel-core processor, after all; all phones coming out now have one on them. In today’s competitive phone market, you either lead with new and innovative ideas, or get left behind. Blackberry and Nokia who once dominated the market has lost it and now struggling to get back in the game. It was once Nokia on top, then BB/RIM and now Android, who know’s what’s coming down the pike? I for one can’t wait to find out.

    No thanks. Why would I switch from a smart phone to a dumb phone. The apps might look a little better on iOS but with google announcing the new DEV tool box Apple will soon have nothing on Android. Except maybe being so easy to use a soccer mom could do it.

  • Anonymous

    The iPhone was an innovator and undoubtedly the impetus for so much of what Android has accomplished.  That said, going for one in the current smartphone landscape is being short-sighted primarily because of its size.  Android has so much more upside and phones like the forthcoming Samsung Galaxy S2 will make everyone realize that it’s time to let go of there 2007 infatuation with this diminutive but agile cruiser with training wheels.    

    • Cybersedan

      Couldn’t have put it better myself, my sentiments of the iPhone myself, trailblazer it was but the trail has changed and the iPhone has not.

      Still bring it to T-Mobile though, because not everyone wants an Android phone :-). 

    • Yeah.  Well said.  Android is the current Evolution.  I’ve read that WP7 is supposed to be the next since it’s essentially the best things about ios and the best of Android put together with the $$ of Microsoft and the hardware support all there from day 1.  Who know’s whats next tho.  I’d like to see tablets with the phone part left in and maybe a disconnectible handset device/bluetooth

    Iphone 4S for both Tmobile and Sprint? Why not even make it a dual carrier phone. I’d like to have coverage for both networks. That would be great. I wouldn’t mind paying prepaid tmobile If I needed… I suggest apple allow the iphone dual bootable like they did their macbooks. This would keep them competitive. The only reason why I bought into Mac because I knew I had the option to install Windows if I chose to. =) They also made it easy to do. That’s what apple should do with the iphone. Make android an option for licensing. Its open source so why not make it available. I still think apple has the best Hardware. It was the hardware that drew me to mac, then realizing the software was superb, I soon followed suit using OSX as my primary operating system, and soon dumped windows altogether. I Love both Google and Apple, why not live in matrimony without the vows.

     another iphone lie….

  • heres to hoping Apple and Tmo will give potential owners the unlock codes, if this is true

  • Egrunder33

     yeah makes alot of will release a phone for a company on the verge of being bought out..ok it doesnt make sense..keep dreamin t-mob

    • Chris

      Here here! It just ain’t gawna happen…

    • Cybersedan

      A T-Mobile iPhone might have been in the works months before a buyout was announced, so your comment makes no sense.  

      And if you know anything about Apple, what has stopped them from bringing out a product that people will buy?  If Apple drops an iPhone on T-Mobile and they can sell even 2 or 3 million units this year, u think Apple cares whether T-Mobile is bought out and those ppl have to buy a new iPhone next year. 

      • remixfa

         There is also no reason why this new phone wouldnt be dual compatable with Tmobile and ATT.  They just have to put in both radios.  Its not that hard.  Even if they didnt, They would still have access to 30 million new customers.

        Would you make a product for potentially 30 million customers?  Does apple care what happens to Tmo? No, they care about their bottom line.
        That said.. BLAAEEEEHHH… I was happy having an iphone free lineup.. lol.

    Keep in mind guys that there are options for those that do not want the iPhone. I feel that the iPhone was long overdue on our network. That will bring many customers over to the T-mobile network and will really help our company. I was an ex iPhone user and am a current G2x user with no plans to look back, but it will be a sound and smart investment for our company.

    • True.  Gotta have a phone for people like my sister who want something that’s cute and slim, but don’t understand what they’re missing out on just like they need free dumb phones for people who only know how to dial the # and hit send.

  • Going_home

    While I dont want anything Apple including iTunes, this is great for T-Mobile !
    The first network to have a 4G iPhone ?
    Think of what that will do for the bottom line !

    Now if the powers that be will make the AT&T thing go away all will be well in TMOland.


  • Cybersedan

     I agree with most of the comments here, while I certainly won’t be lining up for this device, others will and for those that do, this would be good news for our beloved Magenta, so bring it on Apple!!

  • Jmfos

    How about an iphone 4s with a 4″ screen and HSPA+ on tmo!

  • TM21fourT3

    Hmm…..Keep my Android or go with this…

  • Finally! Something I’ve been waiting for since the day the iPhone came out. I’m totally hooked on Android now but I will definitely consider this. and I know a lot of people are saying don’t get your hopes up, but heres why I think this could be real.
    1. Apple probably wants the iPhone to be on all the 4 major networks, to increase sales of it.
    2. This is a lot more possible since Android is killing the iPhone, and Android is availible on all 4 networks, so they want to be too.
    3. They know that T-Mobile’s HSPA+ (a.k.a. T-Mobile 4G) is way better then AT&T’s, which could lead to a way better phone, which could lead to more sales.
    4. They realize that T-Mobile is awesome

  •  How are people still doubting this? We’ve already seen the iPhone being tested on the Tmo network…its going to happen. This is the only way Sprint is going to be able to stay in business.

     I am PRO  Android but on the other hand my wife would love an iPhone. It is just a matter of time before the Android OS moves ahead of the iOS. Unless Google starts to move away from open source.

  • roger

    That would suck! I just bought a g2x and as much as I love it I know somehow the iPhone 4s will be better.

    • Alex (Direct Dealer)

      Thats really unlikely to be true, unless you like less apps, less web capibility, less customization, and less overall device support. i mean if you hate all those things, then it may be better… but i just dont think thats likely.

      • Guest

         Just because they’re more apps, doesn’t mean they’re good.  Android is slowly becoming a better platform… after a little while with a little polish, Android will be unstoppable.

    • Basural

      Rofl… if you bought the G2X for real… you would not even look at an iPhone 4G

      Why do I say this.

      Cause got eight of eight iPhone 4G users to buy a G2X, selling their Apple toys for dirt cheap.


      Cause its so dog gone fast, slick and responsive, that its amazing.

      The fact that they got a discount on the G2X helped.  Still that’s eight former iPhone 4G users.   

      So if you think you rather have an iPhone,….  be my guest.. and drool afterwards.

      • I bought the G2x the day in launched in stores. NO way to undelete email, NO option to add a new email address by clicking on the “from” feild. NO built in spell checker, NO built in custom sms options, battery sucked, NO copy and paste quick option (jump hoops to get it to copy and paste) WIFI was unusable, returned it and fought them on the NEWLY implimented “restocking fee”. I want a S M A R T P H O N E. That means I can un delete my email and it will fix spelling and gramatical errors, I can ADD new address, I can use my phone more then 2 hours. Sure the live tv and games were awesome but so what, smart means just that. (OH and to all the droid FAN BOYS, YES, I spoke to tech support AND 3 tmo emplyees tried to show me that there was NO way those options were not there) I will stick with my blackberry unilt A: Iphone comes to tmo B: blackberry steps up there internet and browsing ability C: android fixes is battery issues.

        Click = garbage returned=
        Mytouch 4G = Garbage returned after first day and upgrade erased all my contacts and some other things
        G2X = Garbage at launch (I dont care if those issues are now fixed or will be fixed. For 500 efing dollars it should do it at launch.

           ROFL, you dont know how to use a phone.

          Cause I do have all that on mine.


          what planet are you living on.

          Battery last two days of continuous use (5am – 12pm).

          Guess you got ripped off. 

        • My2Cents

           No phone comes out of the box and functions exactly the way you want it to.  The beauty of Android and Iphone, is that if the phone doesn’t come out of the box the way you like it, download and application to make it do that.

          and as for the Mytouch 4G erasing all your contacts…  not buying it… especially since if you’re smart.. you would have the phone connected to a Gmail account.. after all it is a Android powered GOOGLE device.  and in which case all of you’re contacts and calendar are saved here, and can easily be put back on the phone.

          It seems like Android isn’t for you.. which is fine..  It works great for me.. and I’d rather use Gmail for Android…  on a Google device.. then to use Gmail for Iphone???  (does that even make sense?)

        • WholesomeGx

           it’s ok man, John Strange seems to have issues breaking his phone by himself…yet Android is to blame lol

        • appleidiots743

           Haha John talks as if Iphones don’t come out defective…every iphone in the world comes out perfect with no problems.
          people need to realize your personal experience with a phone doesn’t make the phone bad.

  •  No thanks, gonna need a screen size of 4+ inches. What is this, 2009?

  • I wanted this phone when the G1 first came out, but they went with AT&T and now Android is the far better option.  Sorry Apple, Stevey J messed up.

  • Noel

    It is a given…for Apple to combat the unstopable Android march they will have to get the iPhone on to all the major carriers. It is the only way for Apple and also as long rumoured, they will also have to come up with a mid level iPhone and also make refurbished devices readily available for cheap. I love Android but also love the competition between the OS… Google Android, Apples OS, Microsoft windows 7, HP WebOS, Blackberry QNX, and yes MeeGo even Symbian. They all make for better devices for us all cz they all wonna up one another. A couple of years from now…the device in ur hand might be a Quad core flawlessly running beast of a device easily averaging 21 or 42 Mbps download.

    • Anonymous

      I’ll wait for this years Google G3 phone, with Terga 3 core.. that’s 5 times faster than Terga 2.

      iPhone 4S. why would i pay for last years technology. and in the case of an iPhone.. that’s 2 years behind Android hardware wise. It makes no sense but to Apple fans.

      Nope, rather have the best, and that’s Android.

      • Yes, the best. Nothing better than having to charge your phone every 2 hours. But hey, you have a snazzy 52″ screen, you can dowload 2tbs, and have a 5x proccessor. Too bad you can’t use it that long or you have to stay plugged in. I thought the idea of having a cell phone was the freedom of not having to have a cord? Android users are slaves to their charge and I don’t want to hear jack SH about “task killer”. The battery still sucks.

        • brucewayne73

           Dear Mr Strange.. you just made me chuckle.  The problems you describe are with the HARDWARE of the phone, not the OS.  

        • at least windows phone is optimized for the h/w and s/wnot many huge hiccuups save from the htc and dell side

     If I had a dollar for ever rumor of an I Phone being sold by T-Mobile I would be a rich man. I hope I am wrong, but with the pending merger with AT &T, the I Phone will not be coming to T-Mobile. AT &T, the I Phone will not be coming to T-Mobile.

    • JMinDC

      As you’ve said, this is a “pending merger.” The FCC has not yet approved of this said merger.  Even if and when the merger comes to fruition, there will be at least a year before a transition really begins to start.  Who’s telling when this could actually be. Two, three, four years from now? As this is a rumor mill, I’ll believe it when I see it. For now, i’m perfectly fine with my MyTouch 4G.

  • Isaac Roldan

    Thats is good news cant wait to by one. I have a andriod phone a samsung galaxy vibrant and I could tell you this that I hate this phone android is not stable and it freezes alot .

         Whatever.  The Vibrant was my favorite phone, ever.  Its not for everyone, but rooting that phone opens up whole new worlds of opportunity.  Re-write the file structure to EXT4, use a custom ROM (I loved Team Whiskey), and overclock to 1.2Ghz.  Phone becomes beast.

        • Adan Salinas

          it really does! i have exactly the same stuff and my sister has the stock vibrant! its so damn slow! and mines REAL FAST!! props to team whiskey!!

    iPhone coming to Tmobile USA.  I wish it were true…
    Apple is not going to waste their time if Humm feels most of the Tmobile USA customers are satisfied with the look of prepaid mobiles.  Just look at Tmobile USAs line up.  I would love to be in the meeting for the Mobile company to listen to them whine about who is paying for promotion of the new mobile.

  • It will or it won’t either way, I am sure that you won’t get “4G Speeds” when it turns into AT&T
