T-Mobile's first iPhone 5 ad: revolutionary phone on a revolutionary carrier

T-Mobile's first iPhone 5 ad: revolutionary phone on a revolutionary carrier
The big day has come and after years of waiting the iPhone 5 has finally arrived on T-Mobile, and interest seems to be pretty high as there are lines in front of some stores.

And it comes at a great time for T-Mobile. The operator has just announced its “un-carrier” initiative so you don’t have to sign into long 2-year contracts. Instead, you are free of the ties, and T-Mobile is making sure to advertize this big:

“It’s the phone that’s revolutionizing phones, make sure its running on the carrier that’s revolutionizing wireless… Only T-Mobile lets your iPhone 5 be as great as an iPhone 5.”

This is what the first T-Mobile iPhone 5 ad says and it definitely does not lack swag.

The carrier is getting a stellar portfolio of devices. The HTC One is coming on April 19th, and the Galaxy S4 soon after. Not a bad time to pick a new device, is it?

What has the iPhone 5 brought that is considered innovation?

To me nothing lately, only refining to keep an already great device in the running. It's time to wow us though.

You made a typo. You meant to put "innovation is what the iPhone was 5 iPhones ago."

It wasn't innovative even then

Well I would have to disagree with that because once the original iPhone was released, phones from other manufactures started to get better at a faster pace.

Seriously? Innovative? They are decent phones, to be sure. But I don't think you understand what is meant by innovation.

The iPhone did revolutionized the phone market, that's a fact. But the iPhone is not crappy. If I didn't prefer Android flagships, I would definitely get an iPhone.

T Mobile should pull an apple type ad like apple did with Intel in belittling them: T Mobile: We got the iphone and weren't screwed over it like Sprint!

The iPhone revolutionized the mobile market, thus it still can be labeled a revolutionary device... However innovation is sorely lacking at apple. It's time to step it up...

That sure is a strange way to spell "LG Prada".

Well T-mobile are a business who want to market a phone, so they can say whatever they damn well please even if the majority of smartphone users disagree.
