T-Mobile customers can now finally start pre-ordering Apple’s iPhone today. In line with its new ‘uncarrier’ initiative, you won’t have to sign a traditional contract to get your hands on the phone.
T-Mobile’s iPhone 5 will set you back $579 up front. That’s a lot of cheddar, and T-Mobile understands that not everyone will be able to swing this cost outright. As an alternative, you can always choose to pay $99 down and make 24 payments of $20 to T-Mobile.
As far as plans are concerned, the iPhone 5 will work with the new $50 Simple Choice plan, which includes unlimited talk, text and 500MB of data. Additional options include boosting the data to 2GB for $10 more, or getting unlimited 4G data for just $20 extra.
For those wondering, if you decide to cancel with T-Mobile before your iPhone payments are finished, the phone will be carrier locked until you either trade it back in or pay off the balance on your account.
What do you think of T-Mobiles new approach, additionally any T-Mobile customers interested in getting their hands on the iPhone?
