T-Mobile prefers having a wide selection of Androids than the iPhone (Sponsored Post)

As it stands right now, T-Mobile is the only major U.S. carrier without the iPhone in its line-up. However, if you think that there's much uneasiness over at T-Mo world, don't be so sure. The carrier is firmly convinced that it has all the firepower needed to match its competitors, and even beat them...

If your in a Tmobile 4g area, there is no reason to be on another carrier. I've been saying that for a while. What Tmobile needs to do is take these reasons.. and PUT THEM ON TV. geesh.

Well I am a T Mobile customer and have 4G and it is very hit or miss. Sorry but for the most part, they are garbage here in southeast Texas. I am gone as soon as I pay my final phone installment. Glad to hear that they work good in a few other places but service has generally been "more or less" in my 4 years with them. I do like my monthly bill but I am finally willing to pay a little more to get better service. VZ has a white Droid RAZR with my name on it!

its hit or miss with everyone. You can go on to each carriers sites and normally you will find a spot to put in your zip and they will give you an accurate coverage map of that area. No more guesswork. :)

T-mobile don't need iPhone. Only carriers that are desperate, thinking iPhone is a life saver NOT !!!

Even for a sponsored post, that was a fun read. T-Mobile is fine with it's device selection, speeds, and it's pricing. Just iron out the leadership/ownership plan, and than expand the coverage so we more consumers have a chance to choose them.

This article would have carried more weight a few months ago. Now Verizon has the kickass portfolio of different Android devices in all shapes, sizes and speeds.

all of which are locked down by VZW, sold at a premium on VZW, and many are loaded with VZW bloat.

"all of which are features that make them fully capable of going toe-to-toe with the latest iPhone." am i slow or something... but why do these features make them capable of going toe to toe? 2 of those listed features are something the iPhone DOESNT EVEN OFFER. in my opinion until the iPhone starts to have those top notch features, they cannot go toe to toe with the big boys on the block.

I agree with them because Apple wants too much return from the phone carriers and what T-mobile said.

Why does it have to be one or the other? All the other carriers have excellent Android choices and the iPhone. They can also say what they would rather have but deep down we all know that if the 1700/2100 frequency was included then this wouldn't be a discussion. T Mobile is only offering Android b/c that's all they really have to offer. If the device had their frequency, trust me they would be playing ball like everyone else. Hell, if they had it, maybe they would actual add a few more customers b/c they have been mighty scarce lately.

Android not Tmo life saver either. Yeah variety Android phones but same product, different skin. No real choice for customers. play fair for every one and maybe tmo gain more customers. Give customers Varity of products: wp, android, iPhone, bb, ECT. And from cheap to expensive. The other, more bars, everywhere and anywhere!

Hmm... now that the AT&T deal went South maybe T-Mobile is thinking: "We love our Android selection and we stick by it. Huh Google, what'cha think about that? Wink Wink Nudge Nudge"
