The Apple iPhone made up 20% of T-Mobile's smartphone sales in Q2
It just so happens that T-Mobile later revealed the sales totals for the two phones during a conference call. The mobile operator sold 900,000 Apple iPhones from the launch date through the end of June, while 600,000 units of the Samsung Galaxy S4 went out the door. That means 21% of the carrier's smartphone sales for Q2 were for Apple's iconic smartphone while the Galaxy S4 made up 14% of T-Mobile's smartphone sales.
It will be interesting to see if T-Mobile customers remain as entranced by the iPhone in the current quarter now that the novelty of seeing the phone wearing the T-Mobile brand is beginning to wear off.

21% iPhone and 14% S4..
The rest are buying cheap phones I guess.
T-Mobile.com is displaying Lumia 521 and Galaxy S2 as their top sellers right now.

And why in the report are not telling if it is the iphone 5 or all iphones in general?
Because Alan refers to THEM as the "Apple's iconinc smartphone" when in reallity that 20% is probably the whole "iphones" family, and then you compare that against one single model from Samsung....

Correct me if I am wrong, but I guess previous generations of Iphones did not support T-Mo spectrum bands. So i guess its just I-Phone 5.

+1 for you, as you are probably right and me just ranting.

Nope, actually it seems that T-Mobile also sells the iphone 4S at least

Lol, too bad the SApple people do not use enough common sense to realize that the next iteration of their phone of choice is about a month away.
