iPhone 5

The rumor mill is hard at work with a new claim that T-Mobile will announce the official release of the iPhone to their network sometime next week.

Merrill Lynch’s Scott Craig made the vague statement, “speculation is heightening”.  Which doesn’t really say much, but just adds to the building anticipation and hope for those T-Mobile users left out. T-Mobile is the last of the big 4 carriers to get the iPhone and that could be due to its current network configuration.  Currently the iPhone isn’t compatible with T-Mobile’s HSPA+ service, which operates on 1700MHZ and 2100MHZ bands.  At the moment, T-Mobile has only released 1900MHZ compatibility in 10 markets, making us wonder how good the iPhone 5 would perform on the network.

The solution could be a tweaked version of the iPhone 5 made specifically to play nicely with T-Mobile’s network, but it is very unlikely Apple would make such a move. Until T-Mobile gives us official word, all we can do is speculate. Keep your fingers crossed for now, and hopefully we’ll have more information for you next week!

    I never understood why carriers like Verizon feature only Android powered phones on their commercials when almost half of the smartphones the sell now are iPhones?

    • Replier

      Because Verizon is a third-party seller of iPhones, and do not own the correct rights to iPhone as they do to Verizon-specific Android cellular phones.
