After the AT&T’s $39 billion acquisition of T-Mobile USA,The big Question is that the T-Mobile will start offering the iPhone? The answer is no.According to the T-Mobile,T-Mobile states this very clearly, but leaves the possibility that things might change in a year.
T-Mobile USA is an independent company. The acquisition is expected to be completed in approximately 12 months. We do not offer the iPhone. We offer cutting edge devices like the Samsung Galaxy S 4G and coming soon our new Sidekick 4G,” states the Q&A document.
AT&T and T-Mobile operate on different 3G bands, and AT&T must cut a new deal with Apple if it wants to transfer the rights to sell the iPhone to another company, even if it owns it. It might eventually get the iPhone, but it will probably the iPhone 5 or other the model that comes after that one.It also claims that billing and service won’t change, the quality of its network will not be reduced, and all rate plans “that are entered into before the change of ownership” will be honored.
