Why do people post questions like this?

How the hell should we know what networks are going to do with a phone that doesn't even exist yet?

This is a forum. Questions are the point. For example, based on past experience, T-Mobile subscribers could respond with the iPhone 5 release schedule as indicia of the iPhone 5s.

The question is reasonable. Your response is not.

Since T-Mobile has a deal with apple, there is a 99% chance T-Mobile and att will get the 5s at the same. T-Mobile and ATT use the exact same spec phone.

I don't see any reason why they wouldn't. When was the last time Apple delayed the release of the iPhone on one of the major carriers that they had a contract with?

Not true.

T-Mobile operates at 1700 MHz, whereas AT&T uses the global standard of 1800.

You mean 1900 and 850 for AT&T. Also currently the iPhone 5 being sold at AT&T and Tmobile stores is the exact same phone. One is just carrier locked to AT&T and the other is carrier locked to Tmobile.

I was just mentioning one of the bands. And yes you're correct in both your points. The way Apple has configured one iPhone to work with both carriers is unique, since other cell phone makers of feature phones and smartphones don't do what Apple does.
