Tomorrow's T-Mobile 'Uncarrier' Event to Include iPhone Announcement

CNET reports that T-Mobile will finally announce plans to sell the iPhone at tomorrow's "Uncarrier" event in New York City.

T-Mobile, which is the only one of the four major U.S. carriers that does not currently offer the iPhone, originally confirmed that it would begin selling Apple products at some point in 2013.

In addition to an iPhone announcement, the event is expected to feature an announcement about T-Mobile's plan to end device subsidies and introduce contract free phones as part of an overall rebranding of the company.

The iPhone is critical to T-Mobile's plans to re-make itself as the "different" carrier. It will be the marquee product illustrating its new no-contract, no subsidy rules, where a customer pays a small fee upfront and pays a monthly charge on top of the service plan to cover the phone costs.

The carrier, which currently supports more than two million iPhones, is also said to be preparing to officially unveil its LTE network at tomorrow's event. iPhone pricing and availability has yet to be announced, though CNET's source notes that the phone will not be immediately available for purchase.

To be fair the ad is posted by evleaks which means Tmobile hasn't posted it and has time to proofread and release this ad...

I'm baffled that u would insult Americans, and be 100% wrong at the same time. My phone bill on AT&T is exactly the same whether I buy a subsidized phone or a phone at full price. Only difference is that I'm locked into a 2yr contract when I buy subsidized. So yeah, for me, who's staying with AT&T, buying subsidized is absolutely a discount. AND when the next iPhone comes out, I'll sell my iPhone for more then the $299 I paid. So I'll also make a profit. What u need to understand is that carrier subsidies are different here in the USA then they are in ur part of the world.

It's technically not a discount because the major carriers artificially inflate your bill to repay them for the device. You're paying for the phone full price and often times more but it's built into a high monthly rate plan. Those who keep their phones beyond the 2 years are a gold mine for those carriers because they are repaying them several times over for the device. What Tmobile has done here is show the consumer an upfront separation of the service from the device cost and when you repay them for the device should you choose to buy one from them, your bill is reduced by $20.

I hope it's successful so that AT&T and Verizon can follow suit. This is the way it should be. Only pay for the more expensive monthly rate if you get a phone from the carrier. The bill should be cheaper to consumers after they have fulfilled their contract and payed the carrier for the device.

I would be all over this if either their coverage was any good, or they had a roaming agreement with another carrier to make up for the spotty coverage.
