    Does that mean no summer iPhone, and we're looking at a Fall release?

    OR, since tmobile is doing the sans carrier sans subsidy iPhone, does that mean IF/whenever apple does release the iphone in the summer, you can still get it for regular price and wouldn't disrupt your service.

    interesting :cool:

    No, just that apple is adding another carrier. This has no bearing on what apple may release in the near future.

    It may help lower plan prices from AT&T and Verizon though, which are outrageous. For example, $80/mo will get you two phones with 500MB each on TMobile versus one phone on Verizon with 300MB of data.

    i would thought it would matter since people who gets em from that carrier would be pissed if another iphone rollout is closeby.

    It's not the same because the people who buys the iPhone 5 now pay full price and no contract compared to Verizon. They can always buy iPhone 5S and sell the 5. Or they can leave anytime since they aren't on contract.

    So what, people are either pissed that it didn't come or pissed because there's another phone that comes out in 6 months? Because clearly the phone they just purchased will stop working the second the new one is announced.

    I would love to see this. Although I love Verizon, their prices are ridiculous. If t-mobile gets it, I may have to test drive an HSPA+ enabled t-mobile phone for a month or two and see if I wanna switch to a cheaper plan. It's just t-mo doesn't have as much coverage compared to Verizon so it will be a tough decision

    Verizon and AT&T both said they are observing tmobiles end of subsidies plans and will consider offering similar plans if it works out for Tmobile.

    that's what i said, it shouldn't matter for tmobile since they will do no contract service
