iPhone on MetroPCS Not Imminent After T-Mobile Merger
As for the iPhone coming to MetroPCS, Legere said it's a possibility, but not a foregone conclusion.Though T-Mobile does not have immediate plans to offer the iPhone via MetroPCS, the company will be moving quickly to offer new MetroPCS-branded devices and transition MetroPCS customers to T-Mobile's network. Legere says that MetroPCS and T-Mobile will be "one integrated company that uses two brands to go to market."
"The answer to that is not 'No'," Legere said, but added, "It's not imminent; I think that's safe to say."
T-Mobile first began offering the iPhone earlier this month, alongside its new contract free "Uncarrier" policy.
According to Legere, T-Mobile's iPhone sales have exceeded expectations, though he did not offer up specific sales numbers. The merger with MetroPCS brings approximately nine million new customers to the network, which could result in even greater iPhone sales if and when T-Mobile decides to offer the iPhone on MetroPCS.
