It’s been a long, long, long, long time coming — as the iPhone 5 is now officially available in T-Mobile stores, through T-Mobile.com and through Apple’s website. Today marks the first time that T-Mobile has carried in store a device from each of the four largest largest smartphone platforms. T-Mobile now provides customers a complete set of options combined with the best new rate plans in the wireless game.

In case you’ve lived under a rock and not reading TmoNews lately, the iPhone 5 will run you $99 down with 24 monthly payments of $20. As a special offer, T-Mobile is running a trade-in offer where customers can bring in their iPhone 4S and iPhone 4 devices to get the iPhone for $0 down play monthly payments. Depending on the value of their older iPhone 4 or 4S device, customers can also receive an extra credit of up to $120 good toward their monthly payments, existing T-Mobile bill, accessories or toward another device. The $120 credit is good if you wish to buy the iPhone 5 at full retail as well.

Apple’s iPhone 4S and iPhone 4 devices are also available at select T-Mobile retail stores and online dependent on where T-Mobile has or is planning to refarm their network.

This day has been a long time coming and while some of you will continue to sit firmly in the anti-iPhone camp, you cannot deny the idea that T-Mobile now has a complete smartphone lineup. At the very least, the appeal of T-Mobile’s iPhone pricing combined with their new rate plans will hopefully entice customers to stick with Magenta and stop the customer exodus that executives have long blamed partially on iPhone¬†availability¬†elsewhere.
