It was confirmed by the company itself at the recent press event in New York, as they pronounced the new mobile release date as well as its price tag. After hearing this blast, you might ask yourself- what’s the catch? Well, just like you, we are also wondering what version of iPhone 5 the T-Mobile could offer. So here it is!
Aside from the release date, the new iPhone 5 of T-Mobile can be purchased in an unrestricted and hassle-free way. Unlike other carriers, T-Mobiles scraped annual contract. Instead, users can either pay the price in full or set up an installment plan.

Aside from that, you are required to pay an upfront payment of $99 for 16GB version. You can also have grab a 32GB and 64GB iPhone 5 in the selected online stores. Just like in the case of 16GB, you can avail on the $20 monthly payment but the upfront payment would be much higher. For 32 GB and 64GB version, you will pay a down payment of $199 and $299 respectively.
The nice thing mentioned above is that customer can make decisions whether to pay the remaining price in full and when to upgrade their devices. As said by the president and CEO of T-Mobile USA, John Legere, he felt the pain of the buyers that the other carriers put them through to own one so they are rewriting the rules to provide reliably simple and affordable iPhone 5 experiences.
Other carriers selling iPhone 5 must better watch out for T-Mobile might go on top of the competition.
