    The rumor news is that the next carrier to get the iPhone is going to be T-Mobile, not Verizon. It is a lot easier to adjust the chipset to work on T-Mobile, and since CDMA is going away soon, it is hard to justify adapting to it. Plus they say that Verizon is not willing to play by Apple's rules.

    TMobile is the only service out there with worse customer service and service than ATT. I had TMobile. It was so horrible between customer service, lies, etc, that I paid over 1000 bucks between my lines and phones to cancel and switch to Verizon.

    ATT doesn't have the best service in all areas but their customer service isn't horrible. TMobile is the like the worst of both worlds.

    HOWEVER, TMobile is cheap and ghetto, so that's why it stay popular.

    As long as T-Mobile has customers, they will sell iPhones. The report said that Apple will go slow switching from AT&T exclusive. However, they will wind up on Verizon because Verizon needs the iPhone, and Apple needs to compete with Android.

    T-Mobile and Apple? I dont think so, unless Apple buys them. Like Mathew said, T-Mobile has the worst ever customer service for a cell company and I don't see Apple going under the covers with that:confused:


    If Apple bought T-Mobile, would they call it iMobile ??? Got a good ring to it :)

    The latest info is that the exclusive contract will end the first quarter of 2011, so by this time next year, there should be another carrier out there.

    Hmm, I have to disagree with the statement of T-Mobile having bad customer services. I have been with many cell phone companies and I end up staying with T-Mobile (4 years now) due to good pricing and more bang for your buck (no additional cost for tethering your phone). I will say that until about 2 years ago the lack of 3G service in my aread (20 miles outside of Baltimore) was bad but service has greatly improved.

    I also travel to Puerto Rico to visit my mother-in-law (great service) and down south and the service is great (atleast the data because that's what I'm using 90% of the time).

    On a side note, their variety of phones is not always up to par.

    Customer service has nothing to do with cost and bang for the bang. Just like I said tmob is cheap which is why they sell

    I'm going to have to generally agree with the majority and say that tmobiles customer service is sub par.. I have been with tmobiles for the last three years and to say I'm a little dissatisfied would be an understatement.. The only reason I chose to stay with them is the fact that they are the cheapest service available.. Well I guess you get what you pay for.
