Leaked memo shows 250K have pre-registered for T-Mobile's Apple iPhone 5
Apple iPhone 5. Finally, Apple's iconic smartphone has made its way to the nation's fourth largest carrier and the phone will launch on April 12th. So far, more than 250,000 pre-registrations for the phone have been received by the mobile operator, with 80% of them coming from existing customers. Those pre-registering for the device are not putting down money to reserve a unit, but are simply sending their email address to T-Mobile so that they can receive the latest information about the iPhone 5. The handset, which costs $199.99 with a signed two year contract from Verizon, Sprint and AT&T, is priced differently on T-Mobile. Customers must make a down payment of $99 and pay the balance off in $20 monthly installments of 24 months.
While the carrier has not released the number of pre-orders it has received for the Apple iPhone, one T-Mobile employee has whispered that the number of pre-orders for the phone has been "impressive" and not too much different than the number that has pre-registered for the handset.
