T-Mobile today confirmed a report that originally appeared in TMoNews.com suggesting that the company had raised the price of the Apple iPhone 5. During the first month of availability, T-Mobile sold the iPhone 5 for a down payment of just $99, followed by 24 monthly payments of $20 each. Apparently, this was a promotional rate."As America's Un-carrier, T-Mobile is committed to introducing the hottest new smartphones at unbeatable promotional prices--but we all know promotions are temporary," the company said in a statement to FierceWireless. "The great news here is that well-qualified customers, on approved credit, can still buy (16GB) iPhone 5 from T-Mobile for $149.99 down starting Monday, May 13." Now that the iPhone has been available for more than 30 days, T-Mobile is charging a higher down payment price, though the monthly payments remain unchanged.

However, if it is, you do know, that based on the previous contract plans, and the current no-contract value plans, even if you paid full price for a device, like $600.00, after the traditional 2 ye...
when those phones are paid off you drop that additional $100. It can be cheaper for some people in the end, for me, I'd be saving like $2-3 each month after the phone was paid off. A co-worker just switched to T-Mobile for this and so far is already h...
These Tmobile options arent that great unless you bring your own phone when you compare it to Sprint. When you compare it to ATT and Verizon you get huge savings ofc. I am with Tmobile since they started offering the No Contract options I would NEVER ...
