Buy iPhone 5s from Apple or TMobile?

I have been a TMobile customer for five years and will be purchasing my
first iphone. In the past I have purchased several Apple products over
the years directly from Apple. Is there any advantage buying from
TMobile as opposed to Apple? Thanks in advance for your advice.

There isn't any difference -- totally your preference.

Always ALWAYS buy from Apple instead of carriers if given the choice.

I don't think there is much advantage either way, mostly just if you are wanting to go to a store to get it and the T-mobile store is closer to you than the Apple store. At release there may be less of a line up at T-mobile stores than there is at Apple stores.

Actually, this is better advice then what I gave in my earlier post. (I was just thinking about price.)

When you buy from Apple, it's much easier to go back to Apple should you have a problem. Apple's customer service is superior to any phone company.
