re: T-Mobile Works iPhone 5 Angles
While I agree with most of the sentiment in this article, I don't understand how the author knows, with what seems like certainty, that T-Mobile will not be getting the iPhone 6th generation iPhone.
T-Mobile has been, as you mention, rolling out 1900 MHz and LTE. I don't think Apple turned down T-Mobile because they didn't want them, I think they turned down T-Mobile because they did not want to create an iPhone with the AWS spectrum for just one company. If T-mobile has the infrastructure that will support the iPhone, I am sure Apple will be more than happy to let them sell the 6th generation iPhone using their subsidies.

I am so glad that Tmobile did not get bought out, I am transferring to Tmobile when my Verizon contract ends in November. I purchased a Tmobile phone for international travel and throw money on my account to use instead of my Verizon phone that does not cover international. I am so impressed with the service that I have used in the past and the cost is miniscule when compared top the other 3 carriers that are a larger mobile carrier than Tmobile. It doesn't surprise me one bit to learn that Tmobile reps. Are preparing for the iPhone 5 release. That is just smart business to gain phones that are not on their network, even if it is the number one smartphone in this country, Tmobile wants a piece of iPhone users and they will get it! That just goes to show you the commitment that the Tmobile will soon move up the ranks.
