When T-Mobile CEO and President took to the stage a few days ago and told the audience in New York City that T-Mobile had a lot of news, he really wasn’t exaggerating!
In-fact, the use of the word “a lot” is an understatement after he reeled off the phones that would be added to the carrier. Most of the phones are 4G LTE devices which include the sought after BlackBerry Z10, the newly released Samsung Galaxy S4, The Galaxy Note II, the HTC One, and last year’s Apple device, the iPhone 5.
So now we know that these top notch devices are heading to a T-Mobile store near you, I guess you are looking for the prices, right?
Prices and Release Dates
If you want the iPhone 5 then you will need to part ways with $100 up front, and then pay $20 per month for a 24 month period. The phone will be available on pre-order in just over a weeks time, and the phone will start shipping out on April 12.
For the HTC One, BlackBerry Z10, Galaxy Note II and the Galaxy S4 then you can expect to see the same $100 deal with a variety of different monthly payment plans.
John Legerem the CEO of T-Mobile had this to say:
“This is an important day for people who love their iPhone but can’t stand the pain other carriers put them through to own one,” Legere said in a press release which went out during the event. “We feel their pain. I’ve felt the pain. So we’re rewriting the rules of wireless to provide a radically simple, affordable iPhone 5 experience — on an extremely powerful network.”
“The phone that redefined the industry is coming to T-Mobile,” he said. “T-Mobile will be the only carrier to offer the iPhone 5 without a contract … on a screaming 4G LTE network.”
