T-Mobile announces iPhone availability, starts LTE rollout
T-Mobile has formally announced that it will carry the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/281898==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/03/25/uncarrier.event.focused.on.iphone.new.plans.alread y.live/" rel='nofollow'>iPhone 5</a>, as well as the iPhone 4S and iPhone 4, at its "Uncarrier" media event. At the same time, the carrier has turned on its <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/281899==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/03/22/crowdsourced.network.service.detects.lte.signals/" rel='nofollow'>LTE 4G</a> network in a number of markets, announced other devices that the phone network will offer in the future, and reiterated its new Simple Choice plans. <br />
<br />
The iPhone 5 for T-Mobile will go on sale <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/281901==https://explore.t-mobile.com/iphone-5" rel='nofollow' target="_self" title="">April 12th</a>, and will cost $100 initially, followed by 24 monthly payments of $20 for the 16GB model. The iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S will also be available in select markets, though without LTE access, at a cost of $15 down and $15 per month for 24 months for the former, and $70 down and $20 per month over the same period for the latter. <br />
<br />
The BlackBerry Z10, HTC One, Samsung Galaxy Note II, Samsung Galaxy S4, and T-Mobile Sonic 2.0 Mobile HotSpot LTE are also announced as heading to the network, with LTE enabled.<br />
<br />
As for the LTE network itself, T-Mobile is making it live in seven cities, including Baltimore, Houston, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Phoenix, San Jose and Washington D.C.. <br />
<br />
The new Simple Choice plans, revealed <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/281900==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/03/25/uncarrier.plans.start.from.50.unlimited.4g.data.fr om.70/" rel='nofollow' target="_self" title="">before the event</a> itself, revolve around offering unlimited calls and texts on all plans, with data being the main difference between prices. A 500MB plan will cost $50 per month while the 2GB option will cost $60, the allowance including tethering, and data speed switching down to 3G once the cap is used up. Another option, offering unlimited national 4G coverage for $70, will include a 500MB limit for tethering, though this can be extended.
