A number of US T-Mobile stores saw small lineups today for the carrier's launch of the iPhone 5, reports say. The information is confirmed by photos
, first-hand accounts, and calls to some locations. In some cases, according to AppleInsider
, shops reported
having a "full store" for some time after opening. Documents obtained
reveal that T-Mobile is limiting orders to one phone per person every 14 days, and that it has over 240,000 launch units to sell.
While the store traffic is less than what would accompany a new iPhone, it may still signal healthy sales for T-Mobile. Until now, the carrier has seen a slow subscriber bleed as other national and even regional carriers have picked up the iPhone. T-Mobile is the last national US carrier to sign a deal with Apple.
