T-mobile USA just lost 802,000 customers is the 4th quarter last year. I know in the beginning stages of the 1st generation iPhone that Steve Jobs flirted with Apple having its own phone carrier here in the US. Is it just me or maybe this is perfect timing for Apple to purchase T-Mobile USA and have its own carrier with only one device for a smartphone and of curse the iPad. I think that would be brilliant! They could still have the iPhone available through Verizon, AT&T and Sprint but to have its own GSM carrier would be fantastic.
