T-Mobile drops iPhone from the "Bring your own iPhone" campaign

T-Mobile drops iPhone from the "Bring your own iPhone" campaign
Once again, T-Mobile was the only major U.S. carrier to not get mentioned during an iPhone announcement. As you probably know already, the iPhone 5 is being offered with service from AT&T, Verizon, or Sprint, just like the case was with the iPhone 4S. That didn't stop the nation's fourth to try and lure in some iPhone users with the "Bring your own iPhone" campaign, but alas, someone didn't seem to like the whole idea.

Just a few days ago, rumors started circulating the web claiming that the term "iPhone" was to be dropped from T-Mobile's marketing ploy, and this photo of a T-Mobile flyer confirms them. Did Apple ask T-Mobile to alter the campaign's nature, or was it the carriers? We don't really know.

However, T-Mobile would still let any owner of an unlocked AT&T smartphone to join its network. In fact, anyone who joins the party might potentially save up to $50 by switching to a T-Mobile plan. As far as iPhone 5 owners are concerned, they are more than welcome to switch to T-Mobile, as Nano-SIM cards are in stock at the carrier's outlets.
