T-Mobile branded Dock Connector for Applie iPhone and iPod raises eyebrows
Every once in a while, we hear a different kind of rumor about which carrier is about to grab the Apple iPhone. While most of the time speculation centers around a Verizon-Apple hook up, occasionally we see a story pertaining to the iPhone and T-Mobile. The nation's fourth largest carrier (and self-proclaimed owner of its largest 4G network) is now offering at some of its retail stores, a 30 pin cable proprietary to the iOS triplets.

T-Mobile has welcomed unlocked iPhone users on its network. The Dock Connector could simply be a sign of how the carrier has opened its arm wide to greet Apple users. Or, perhaps, it could mean something else like the impending addition of the Apple iPad or maybe even the Apple iPhone, to the mobile operator's lineup.

Does it not work for the iPad as well? That would be my guess.

In Europe, T-mboile is not the only carrier for the iPhone, so I don't see why not the same for the US carriers.

Apple agreed to sign a contract with ATT because they make A LOT more money per phone sold. Most people dont realize that ATT reps make little to no money on iphone sales. The reason being that ATT buys the phone for a REALLY high price... (I think its 600), but then they sell it (with contract) for $200. Also, ATT pays apple an "undisclosed" amount of money each month (some says its as high as $18) per every iphone user. Yes, I know... ATT is stupid for creating such a deal, but they were desperate at the time.
