T-Mobile USA today revealed that it will offer customers the Apple iPhone 5, 4S, and 4. Preorders for the iPhone 5 begin April 5, and the device will be in stores April 12. The Apple iPhone 4S and 4 will be available in select markets later. The iPhone 5, for example, will require a $100 downpayment, with $20 monthly installments added to the customer's bill. The customer can also choose to pay full price for the device. The iPhone 4S will require a $70 downpayment and $20 in monthly payments, and the iPhone 4 will require a $15 downpayment and $15 in monthly payments. According to T-Mobile, Apple customized the iPhone 5 for T-Mobile's network. It supports T-Mobile's LTE network, in addition to HSPA+ in the 1700 and 1900 MHz spectrum. T-Mobile is also the only U.S. carrier to support the iPhone 5's wideband audio capability, which T-Mobile calls HD Voice. The iPhone 4S and iPhone 4 will not be customized for T-Mobile's LTE network, but can access its HSPA+ service in the 1900MHz band.

For how long?

Lots of long term financial considerations here.
24 months.

T-Mobile iPhone 5 costs $99 + ($20 x 24) = $580.

The 4? Really?

At this point, why even offer such an outdated device? Especially considering there will be another new model later this year.
5 also.
Not everyone can afford a iPhone 5. I like the iPhone 4 its great for people who just want to have an iPhone. Plus the fact that they look identical to the iPhone 4s makes it appealing.

better late than ever. Only 6 years after the iphone came out, so not bad.
I guess so. Would be nice if T-Mobile worked on their crappy data and network coverage too. So many areas convert to their EDGE network, its pathetic.
