No iPhone For T-Mobile

Disappointment: No iPhone 4S For T-Mobile

It has been a while since I have posted an article so I thought I start again with an update rather than a review or video. So what’s on my mind? Not an iPhone on T-Mobile that’s for sure.  After the news that T-Mobile and AT&T were merging, I had high hopes for an iPhone. I did not want to leave T-Mobile because they have always served me well. However, now that the new iPhone 4s has been said and done, I am extremely disappointed by the fact that all three carries: Sprint, Verizon and AT&T have obtained the iPhone 4s and all of Siri’s greatness; While T-Mobile, whom you would thought had the greatest chance of getting it did not. Especially when putting into consideration that AT&T, on a GSM network like T-Mobile, was the first to get the iPhone. There were also rumors of iPhone cases being sent to T-Mobile, as well as micro sim cards. Sadly, in the end, we T-Mobile owners are left out.

Can you use an iPhone 4s on T-Mobile’s network?

You most certainly can! However, I personally do not think it is worth it. You would have to buy the phone off contract, which will probably cost you two arms, a leg, and a vocal cord (Siri pun intended). And even after that, you will not be able to take advantage of its 3g network because AT&T and T-mobile both use different frequencies. So, is the iPhone4s without 3g data and a hefty price tag worth it for you? For me, I plan to just get the Blackberry Bold 9900 with its 4g glory. You can’t go wrong with that!
