Apple iPhone 5 in its lineup, T-Mobile might be able to prevent more customers from leaving the carrier. In addition, the phone is expected to run over the operator's new LTE pipeline which is expected to be introduced tomorrow with service to start in 7 markets, the names of which leaked during the weekend. Besides the Apple iPhone 5, T-Mobile has another LTE phone that will be introduced on Tuesday, the BlackBerry Z10. Additionally, the T-Mobile version of the Samsung GALAXY Note II recently received an update that now allows the device to connect to T-Mobile's LTE service.
While the Apple iPhone is supposed to be introduced by T-Mobile tomorrow, it won't immediately be offered to T-Mobile customers, although a launch date is unknown.While pricing is also an unknown, T-Mobile will no longer be offering phones with subsidies from its corporate owned stores. Instead, customers will be asked to pay a down payment and pay off the device monthly using the carrier's EIP (Equipment Installment Plan).
