T-Mobile CEO Legere says Apple iPhone closer to 3 months away than 6 months
Legere said that offering the Apple iPhone and the removal of subsidies on new phones could add 5% to the company's market share. "If the old industry structure chooses to ignore what we do," he said, "That's a potential." And besides its pending merger with MetroPCS, which could close next quarter, Legere sees further deals as a possibility. Two companies he mentioned as possible partners were Dish Network and Leap Wireless. The executive said that Leap is "one of those things that makes extreme sense for us to look at."
Meanwhile, Dish Chairman Charles Ergen said he could be months away from deciding whether to go solo as a wireless carrier, or to go with a partner. Later Tuesday, the company announced an "indication of interest" to buy wireless network provider Clearwire for $3.30 a share, topping the $2.97 offered by Sprint.

It's good for T-Mobile customers to have that choice now, but I'll keep my old Samsung. It's paid for and works.

Exactly. Them now offering the iPhone with LTE and lowest prices, 2013 is going to be a good year for T-Mobile.
