T-Mobile wants your unlocked iPhone .. will give you a better deal than AT&T

By: t-marco September 10th, 2012

Starting Wednesday, T-Mobile will start advertising that AT&T iPhone owners who are out of contract can switch to T-Mobile, just at the same day that Apple will launch the new iPhone.

“We’re seeing customers increasingly asking for more choice,” Harry Thomas, director of marketing at T-Mobile, told CNET. “We do think we have a big opportunity to sell people who are already have (an iPhone).”

  • Unlimited data: T-Mobile offers worry-free, unlimited nationwide data.
  • Cost Savings: Customers with unlocked iPhones can save $50/month compared to AT&T*.
  • Nationwide coverage that’s only getting better: T-Mobile’s voice network reaches 96% of all Americans, and later this year, as we transform our network, introducing 4G (HSPA+) service in our iPhone-compatible spectrum, these unlocked iPhones will get a significant speed boost where these improvements are available.

In Atlanta and New York, T-Mobile will be giving away $100 gift cards to customers who sign their iPhones up for two-year contracts.

AT&T and T-Mobile USA have fill up a file requesting the US FCC  for its approval for the proposed $1 billion worth of transfer in wireless airwaves. T-Mobile will receive AWS spectrum from AT&T in 128 markets, a $3 billion cash breakup fee and a seven year UMTS roaming agreement.

T-Mobile has said it needs additional spectrum to keep pace with its larger competitors. It is the only major national carrier with no plan to roll out the faster fourth-generation mobile broadband service known as LTE, and it lost 849,000 contract customers in last year’s first nine months.

Tom Sugrue, T-Mobile’s senior vice president said “This additional spectrum will help meet the growing demand for wireless broadband services,” from a email statement from the Wall Street Journal.

“With the spectrum we’re getting, we have a better chance of expanding the network in many markets,” Deutsche Telekom CEO Rene Obermann said during a conference call with reporters. “That is not a final solution. In the long term, we need more spectrum and network capacity. We are working on that.”
