26 March, 2013

After years of being left out of the privileged club, T-Mobile US will finally begin officially carrying Apple products. The most notable one to hit the carrier's shelves will be the Apple iPhone 5 which will be available for purchase next month, on April 12.

A 16GB version of Apple's latest smartphone creation will be available with the carrier's brand new, no commitment plans for $99 down and 24 monthly payments of $20. This brings the price of the handset to the highly acceptable $579 over two years.

In a similar fashion, T-Mobile will offer the iPhone 4S for $69.99 down and 24 monthly payments of $20. The iPhone 4 on the other hand, will set users back $14.99 up front and $15 a month for the next 24 months.

In order to make up for coming late to the party, the iPhone 5 for T-Mobile will carry a some exclusive tricks up its sleeve. They include support for the carrier's zippy 42Mbps HSPA+ network for those moments when LTE is not available, as well as HD voice capability.
