T-Mobile iPhone 4G in 2010 / 2011: Android Main Focus

By Peter Chubb - Mar 18, 2010

We have mentioned on a number of occasions about the iPhone 4G and the hope that Apple will launch their new smartphone this year – not only on AT&T but Verizon as well. A new rumor has now started that T-Mobile could be getting the iPhone either in 2010 or 2011.

The original report of this story comes from the Financial Times – the British newspaper was in a conversation with Deutsche Telekom’s CEO. The talks between the two went on to discuss that the iPhone will come to T-Mobile USA this year or next, but until then the main focus will be on Android handsets.

Engadget picks up on the fact that T-Mobile makes it sound as though Google Android is being used until something better comes along – that would be the iPhone then. It is no secret that T-Mobile – Americas fourth largest mobile carrier – is losing out to the likes of AT&T, the iPhone could help change its fortunes.

We do not know how much truth there is in this rumor; this could be one that we have to take with a pinch of salt. If you had the choice of the iPhone going to Sprint, T-Mobile or Verizon, which one would you choose?

SPrint and verizon both screw you out of your money. and i signed up with tmobile YEARS ago and i have a blackberry now with no problems. I also signed up for unlimited messaging for famalies at a special rate of 9.99 for entire family. so im good with tmobile =)

  • jenniferFRMlancPA

    Most def T-Mobile….that would be awesome….I have been wanting the iPhone since I first heard about it a few years back. I have T-Mobile and I refuse to switch to AT&T because I am happy with my service and the fact that T-Mobile has flex-pay which AT&T does not have!!

  • josh

    SPRING ?

  • erin

    T-mo… already use it jailbroken… no problems… with their plan its not only cheaper.. but in deadspots you can roam to att forno charge… best of both worlds

  • Rocket21

    Verizon… Its the ONLY network that works here… I suppose if AT&T put up a tower or something here, I'd give an AT&T iPhone a try… Tried it for one whole day until I found I had NO SERVICE… returned it the next day and went crawling back to Verizon.

  • Frank from SF

    Any carrier but ATT would do, but I would prefer Spring or TMobile, never used Verizon so don't know about their quality from a customer's experience. My calls via Spring were clear and solid, switched over to ATT because of the iPhone, hate it the call quality, drop calls and the poor 3G network access or lack of it, after 4 months, unlocked phone, switched to TMobile and was happy until I missread and missuderstood the upgrade to 3.1.3 from 3.1.2 firmware, iPhone is now locked; only works as an iPod touch now, can't get it unlocked and am not going back to ATT, so patiently waiting to see what develops soon. Currently using my TMobile chip on an old TMobile razor phone borrowed from a friend. So entertaining going over to Sprint or get a new TMobile phone. Current ads on the net about unlocking the new firmware upgrade of 3.1.3 seems to only apply to 1st generation iPhones, not the lates like mine. So patiently waiting…
