While T-Mobile sent out a short press release announcing support for the new iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, it lacked any information regarding pricing, especially Simple Choice pricing. However, as it turns out, the pricing information has been right in our face thanks to the pre-registration pages.
With the internet turning upside down that the iPhone 5c doesn’t show the “c” as standing for cheap, the phone still has a decent price tag on T-Mobile at $0 down and 24 monthly payments of $22 per month. All totaled, the 16GB variant of the iPhone 5c will run $528.
The iPhone 5s will arrive at a price tag more in line with our expectations at $99 down and 24 monthly payments of $22.91 per month. When all is said and done, the iPhone 5s will run $648.84 for the 16GB variant.
As T-Mobile’s press release went out earlier in the week made no mention of pricing, we’re not ready to call these prices 100% official or final. Therefore, I’d urge everyone to take the registration page pricing with a grain of salt as T-Mobile has made last-minute pricing changes in the past with Simple Choice smartphone releases. Still, it’s a step in the right direction so that iPhone 5s/5c buyers can start planning how much to shell out in the coming days.
