T-mo­bile ex­pected to carry iphone in 2013

Austin American-Statesman - - BUSINESS - Com­piled from wire re­ports.

T-Mo­bile will likely start car­ry­ing the iPhone next year af­ter its par­ent com­pany, Deutsche Telekom, said it reached a deal with Ap­ple.

T-Mo­bile USA had been the lone iPhone-less car­rier among the four na­tional wire­less com­pa­nies in the U.S. Although it has been pos­si­ble to use iPhones on T-Mo­bile net­works, cus­tomers had to pro­vide the phones them­selves. The phones also work at much slower speeds, though T-Mo­bile has been reshuf­fling its net­work to match or ex­ceed AT&T’s data speeds.

The three larger car­ri­ers, AT&T Inc., Ver­i­zon Wire­less and Sprint Nex­tel Corp., al­ready sell the iPhone, as do many smaller ones.
