T-Mobile Will Soon Carry iPhone 5

April 11, 2013 •

Good news for iPhone users! If you’ve wanted to upgrade your current iPhone or switch to the Apple team, you can now do so on the T-Mobile network!

T-Mobile recently announced plans to carry iPhone 5. Pre-orders are open now and the iPhone 5 will begin shipping April 12th. You can pay $579 upfront or choose to pay $99.99 with a $20/month payment plan over 24 months.

For many, the biggest perk to iPhone 5 on T-Mobile is the no annual contract plan that T-Mobile recently launched. T-Mobile is the only major U.S. wireless carrier to offer this for iPhone 5.

U.S. iPhone 5 Carriers
Remember the days when iPhones were only available on the AT&T network? Apple has thankfully moved past that and opened up distribution to a variety of carriers. In the U.S., you can get an iPhone through:

  • AT&T
  • Sprint
  • T-Mobile
  • Verizon

That means iPhone 5 is now available from the top 4 U.S. wireless services providers. The next 4 largest U.S. wireless service providers that Apple has yet to let carry iPhones are:

  • TracFone Wireless
  • MetroPCS
  • U.S. Cellular
  • Cricket Wireless
