After an excruciatingly long wait, the inevitable has finally happened just a couple of days ago. T-Mobile, America’s fourth-largest carrier, has confirmed it’ll sell the iPhone 4, 4S and 5 starting on April 12.
The first pricing details have been announced during T-Mo’s “Uncarrier” event too, but the iPhone puzzle still missed a few pieces. Thankfully, all the cards are now on the table, though it’s unfortunately not all good news for Magenta/Apple fans.
Though it’s been confirmed that T-Mobile will carry the 32 and 64 GB versions of the iPhone 5 in addition to the 16 GB model, the first two will only be sold online for some reason. Brick and mortar stores will thus get the “low-end,” 16 GB variant and only that.
As for prices, our guesses have proved to be spot on, so, while the 16 GB iPhone 5 will cost $99, the 32 GB will go for $199 and the 64 GB will be worth $299. In addition to that, you’ll be asked to cough up an extra 20 bucks each month for two full years, even if T-Mobile doesn’t require the signing of contracts anymore.
If we crunch up the numbers, we get grand totals of $579, $679 and $779 respectively paid over the 24 months, which is 70 bucks less than what Apple charges upfront for the latest iPhone in its SIM-free variation. Not too shabby!
