    March 10th 2013, I jumped on the unlocked iphone 5 for t-mobile bandwagon, and 2 weeks and 2 days later T-mobile announces iphone 5. I coudn't even enjoy the new found freedom I gained after leaving AT&T since iPhone 1 launch....

    Run back to a nearby apple store, ask them to give you in store credit...so you can buy the new "tweaked" iphone 5 on april 11th...it will be available in apple store as well since Apple will be selling it as "Unlocked" and for use as AT&T iPhone 5....it will also be the standard GSM model...

    If you bought from Apple you have 30 days to return an iphone no questions asked.

    What do you mean by standard GSM? Does that mean T-Mobile iP5 will be unlocked GSM. I'm planning on purchasing it full price from T-Mobile. I read it would be cheaper than Apple (according to blogs) plus no contract.

    I also heard that apple will honor T-Mobile's pricing or something. I'm sure this'll all be cleared up in time. Or you can try contacting apple and see what they tell you

    Thanks. Do you know if the T-Mobile iP5 will be GSM unlocked even without a contract for use internationally?

    I think it comes locked to T-Mobile. When you pay your phone in full, just call T-Mobile and they'll process a request to get your device unlocked

    3. tmobile aws phone comes out 4/12
