T-Mobile Now Taking Preorders for iPhone 5

On Friday, T-Mobile began accepting online preorders for Apple’s most recent smartphone refresh, the iPhone 5.

Following years of rumors suggesting the inevitability, late last month subscribers of T-Mobile learned they will finally gain long-awaited access to Apple’s flagship touchscreen device.

The nation’s fourth largest carrier will now be afforded the opportunity to better compete with AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint – each of which has offered the iPhone for a considerably lengthy period of time already.

At the company’s March “uncarrier” event, T-Mobile confirmed plans to offer a 16-gigabyte iPhone 5 for just $99 up front, followed by 20 monthly payments of $20.

The iPhone officially goes on sale at T-Mobile on April 12th.
