T-Mobile's first iPhone 5 ad: revolutionary phone on a revolutionary carrier
And it comes at a great time for T-Mobile. The operator has just announced its “un-carrier” initiative so you don’t have to sign into long 2-year contracts. Instead, you are free of the ties, and T-Mobile is making sure to advertize this big:
“It’s the phone that’s revolutionizing phones, make sure its running on the carrier that’s revolutionizing wireless… Only T-Mobile lets your iPhone 5 be as great as an iPhone 5.”
This is what the first T-Mobile iPhone 5 ad says and it definitely does not lack swag.
The carrier is getting a stellar portfolio of devices. The HTC One is coming on April 19th, and the Galaxy S4 soon after. Not a bad time to pick a new device, is it?

Innovation is what the iPhone 5 is.

What has the iPhone 5 brought that is considered innovation?

To me nothing lately, only refining to keep an already great device in the running. It's time to wow us though.

You made a typo. You meant to put "innovation is what the iPhone was 5 iPhones ago."

Well I would have to disagree with that because once the original iPhone was released, phones from other manufactures started to get better at a faster pace.

Seriously? Innovative? They are decent phones, to be sure. But I don't think you understand what is meant by innovation.

Even you must be getting tired of ringing that bell. I'm beginning to think you say these things to stir the pot to see how many red thumbs you get. (I never play into your game by giving thumbs down FYI)

The iPhone did revolutionized the phone market, that's a fact. But the iPhone is not crappy. If I didn't prefer Android flagships, I would definitely get an iPhone.

T Mobile should pull an apple type ad like apple did with Intel in belittling them:
T Mobile: We got the iphone and weren't screwed over it like Sprint!

The iPhone revolutionized the mobile market, thus it still can be labeled a revolutionary device... However innovation is sorely lacking at apple. It's time to step it up...

That sure is a strange way to spell "LG Prada".

Well T-mobile are a business who want to market a phone, so they can say whatever they damn well please even if the majority of smartphone users disagree.
