    I called a few different T-Mobile stores in NYC and they all received nano SIM cards today to use with the iPhone 5. For those like me who messed up cutting down their SIM card this is great news. :)

    I knew T-Mobile would come through They make having an unlocked phone so much more inexpensive. I like that they cater different plans to different users. Will be going with them next year.

    Guess its certain ones. My store hasn't received any yet. Even so, I'm waiting for the refarm to be completed in my area before investing in the iPhone 5. The 20+Mbps download speeds in hspa+ will be worth it.

    If I could get a stable 10mbps I would switch from vzw in a heartbeat for cheaper plans

    Lower rate plan and actual unlimited data. It's $69.99 for the unlimited everything plan.

    Downside is that there won't be any LTE until next year.

    For me, my grandfathered 5.99 unlimited data plan.. once the refarm is complete, I'll be getting unlimited 3G for 5.99 a month! Seems good enough of a reason to me :)

    A Tmobile manager was telling customers that when they get the nano sims in then customers with iphones will be able to get 4G:D

    I thought I seen that plan...is it 100 minutes? If so, I'm assuming its not free mobile to mobile?

    That's because the iPhone 5 shows the 4G logo when it's on 3G. lol

    Only on AT&T it does that 4G scam:D
    But either way he was telling people in that area that only get 2G on Tmobile on their iphones now that when the nanosims are in they will magically get 4G.
    Just some more nonsense by reps that make things up as they go:D
    Tmobile only has refarmed their network in a few places in the US, its still not that widespread and has nothing to do wether you use a nanosim or a cut up microsim. That's the point I was making.

    I think in order to get that, you'll need to purchase a 4G phone from T-Mobile.

    No, you don't. Just pick the plan you want at tmobile and they give it to you.

    The $30 plan is prepaid.

    Im sure they will send u a text once u about to reach the 100 minutes, and if u do they will prolly charge u per minute!

    Ayways, like i said this plan is just something that suits me best! I never or rarely use my minutes monthly!

    Like i said if i do make calls, i call over my google voice number. All my credit card accounts are link to tht number anyway.

    So when i call from my google voice number they know directly it is me.

    Ps: it is a prepaid as month to month! Not the type of prepaid where you have or need to add money in! That mean you can cancel anytime you want.

    I have an unlocked iPhone 4 that I'm planning on using on T-Mobile. If this NanoSIM is available at a store near me, will I be able to purchase it and use it for the $30 Monthly 4G plan that's available through the website or will I still have to buy the regular MicroSIM through the website and eventually cut it down to nano?
