AT Last!

All I have to do now is patiently wait for my AT&T contract to end and then I can move on over. Saving almost $50 a month is incredibly appealing.

<marketing drone>But my T-Mobile phone already has 4G, it says so right on the display, and T-Mobile's 4G is faster and better than AT&T. T-Mobile's 4G is the exact same as 4G from AT&T and Verizon, only better.</marketing drone>

Took you long enough to get with the program T-Mo! I'll be very glad for this when my renewal comes due.

Perfect time for the 5S

Unlocked iPhone 5S on their $30/month no contract plan would be perfect.

Does anyone know if what frequencies the T-mobile's future LTE will work with? Thinking of getting my mother an iPad with LTE and she's a T-mobile user but not sure which variant to go for.

Apple "PRODUCTS", huh?

Are we talking about iPhones or iPhone Bumpers? We are talking about T-Mobile after all...

And December 30th, 2013, is, according to Apple's recently 'in November' released 21.5" iMac, a product released to T-Mobile in 2013, as per announcement.

And there was much rejoicing...

I would assume that it will happen at the Spring release of the 5S?

That means FREE 4S's on contract!

T-Mobile is awesome in Chicago and the Customer Service is great.

I had 3 lines with TMobile for nearly 8 years.

Left over summer for Sprint. 2 people wanted iPhones and I was interested in trying one. I didn't stick with an iPhone on Sprint but combined with rising overages on TMobile, poor phone selection, and sporadic coverage we left for Sprint.

TMobile should have had the iPhone years ago.

T-Mo should have been the exclusive carrier

Back in 2007, Apple should have made T-Mobile the exclusive carrier back in 2007. AT&T has a better network now in many places now, but that wasn't the case in 2007. AT&T should have died, but Apple kept them afloat and profitable with the iPhone. T-Mobile -- which had far better customer service, phone service, and prices -- suffered as a consequence.

No way they'll allow the $30 Walmart plan to work with iPhones. They'll either raise the price or block it from getting high speed data if you are using an iPhone

Looks like we are grandfathered in right now.

I would imagine that we will be required to switch if we are getting a subsidized iPhone from T-Mobile.

An unsubsidized iPhone maybe we can keep the old plan - but we will see.

I left T-Mobile for the iPhone in 2008. When they asked why I was leaving I said "for the iPhone."

Glad to see my comment finally made a difference.

You might be better off terminating it yourself and paying ETF fees, if you indeed will be saving $50

So this will be like a cheaper version of at&t services? Given the lack of LTE both carriers have.

I'll take her bike, sold mine 2 years ago a couple of months before I had my daughter and I miss it every day. Hopefully I can afford another one in the near future, right now my family is more important.

Well that's at least a couple of years too late, but I guess they'll say it was predicated on T-Mobile repurposing their LTE bands.

This just keeps adding to the fact that Apple as a company is changing. They aren't as secretive as they used to be about stuff like this. They're telling their customers more about what is happening/what is going to happen. I like that a lot
