While we’re gearing up for the next iPhone introduction, T-Mobile just posted an open letter to customers which indicates that it won’t be getting the iPhone but that its current crop of high-end Android phones like the Amaze 4G and the Galaxy S II are just as good, if not better.
In the letter, T-Mobile says that there are already more than 1 million unlocked iPhone running on T-Mobile’s network which is pretty shocking when you consider that these Apple users are only getting EDGE speeds. Still, it is focusing on Android for the time being.
We’ve heard from many customers who love their T-Mobile service, but are disappointed that we don’t carry the iPhone. To these customers, first, thank you for your business. Please know that we think the iPhone is a great device and Apple knows that we’d like to add it to our line-up. Today, there are over a million T-Mobile customers using unlocked iPhones on our network. We are interested in offering all of our customers a no-compromise iPhone experience on our network.
That no-compromise approach may be tough for Apple to swallow because it would have to use the AWS bands to have a great T-Mobile experience but I don’t see Apple bending over backwards to support this for a carrier that may soon be swallowed by AT&T. What do you think T-Mobile fans, are
