T-Mobile entices AT&T iPhone customers to join its network

T-Mobile didn’t waste any time trying to grab new customers from AT&T. One day after AT&T began unlocking off-contract iPhones, T-Mobile is letting it be known that it has some of the best calling and data plans in the nation. The carrier also points out that it already has one million iPhones running on its network and invites other iPhone owners to join them. Here is T-Mobile’s statement:

Today we have more than one million unlocked iPhones running on our network.  T-Mobile currently offers microSIMs for customers who already have a GSM phone they want to use on the T-Mobile network, including an iPhone. In order to set up an unlocked iPhone on T-Mobile’s network, customers simply need to purchase a microSIM card and select a T-Mobile Value plan that suits their needs.

T-Mobile’s Value plans enable customers who bring their own smartphone, such as the iPhone, to save money. For example, T-Mobile’s Value family plan with unlimited talk, unlimited text and unlimited data with 2 GB of high-speed data is just $49.99 per line for two lines.

In addition, we will continue to deliver more value to customers as we expand and modernize our 4G network. Beginning this year, we will introduce HSPA+ service in our 1900 MHz PCS spectrum. When we do, our 4G network will be compatible with a broader range of devices, including the iPhone.

If you are an iPhone owner with an unlocked phone, will you be jumping ship to go with T-Mobile?

    who doesn’t enjoy getting their sweet and slow 2G speed. LMAO

        Mo does have a point, however. The unlocked iPhone on the T-Mobile network only runs at 2G speeds. So any iPhone owner who was unhappy with the performance of the AT&T network would be positively despondent at the performance of the iPhone on T-Mobile.

    Yeah, I thought iPhones run at 2G speeds only on T-Mobile?
