Yesterday, we have reported that Sprint will off the new iPhone 5 together with AT&T and Verizon in mid-October. Today a new report from MacTrast shows that the T-Mobile USA will also introduce the iPhone 5.
Following our report yesterday that Apple’s upcoming iPhone 5 will be arriving on the Sprint network, a contact within T-Mobile who claims to have been briefed on the matter has informed us that, in addition to arriving on Sprint at launch, the iPhone 5 will arrive on T-Mobile’s network at launch as well.
The informant, who requested to remain anonymous, went on to claim that the iPhone 5 would also operate at 3G speeds on T-Mobile US network. Current unlocked iPhone 4 units can only operate at at 2G “edge” speeds on T-Mobile’s network, and lack certain network-dependent features, such as Visual Voicemail.
So the iPhone 5 will be released on the big four USA mobile carriers, AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile
We also got word that the iPhone 5 (or whatever the next model iPhone ends up being) will be a dual-mode GSM/CDMA world phone for connectivity all over the place
