T-Mobile stores see extra traffic on iPhone 5 launch day
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 <a href="https://twitter.com/piecykw/status/322705533381521408">photos</a>, first-hand accounts, and calls to some locations. In some cases, according to <em>AppleInsider</em>, shops <a href="http://appleinsider.com/articles/13/04/12/iphone-5-debuts-to-lines-crowds-and-commercials-on-t-mobile">reported</a> having a "full store" for some time after opening. Documents <a href="http://www.tmonews.com/2013/04/t-mobiles-iphone-marketing-campaign-blitz-kicks-off-tomorrow-as-store-reps-finalize-training/">obtained</a> by <em>TmoNews</em> 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.<br /><br />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.
