It's almost official. T-Mobile will not be getting the iPhone 5 this year. This is very sad news, if I were still a T-Mobile customer, which I am no as of last week. I've switched my family over. I have had a long history with T-Mobile and I like their people and services. And stuck it out with them year after year while I waited to see if they'll get the iPhone.
The last straw was when Verizon got the iPhone 4 and I tried to lock into the unlimited data plan. To make matters worse, AT&T came along and is currently in the process of trying to buy T-Mobile.
Tmo-News reported that T-Mobile's Chief Marketing Officer Cole Brodman said "we are not getting the iPhone 5 this year". So there you have it. I don't know about you but that seems like a lock: No iPhone 5 for T-Mobile this year.
This is going to get ugly for T-Mobile. I'm hoping that it'll still get the iPhone 4 somehow and that could stem the damages some what. But does it really matter anymore?
So long, guys. You were great.
