T-Mobile USA selling micro-SIMs

 

With all the talk of Sprint getting the iPhone, now T-Mobile is selling micro-sims.

 

America was built on healthy competition. Now that iPhone is finding other legitimate distribution channels AT&T will have to become more customer friendly.  Right!!

 

Yes, T-Mobile doesn't support 3G today,  but with 3G service I see these days from AT&T, that isn't much of a problem.

 

==========================================================================

 

T-Mobile USA has started selling a Micro-SIM Card in what may be a sign that Apple's next iPhone will support the network as rumored. The SIM card will also work with the iPhone 4 and iPad.

Already have a GSM phone or iPhone that you need to activate-or have an unlocked GSM phone you want to use on the T-Mobile network? Just get a Micro SIM card and choose a plan. Slip the ready-to-use Micro SIM Card into your phone and you're ready to go.

Recently Piper Jaffray analyst Chris Larsen reported that the next iPhone will support the T-Mobile network.

"While we remain uncertain regarding the next-generation iPhone's specs and features, we believe the most noteworthy change could be the device's ability to run on more networks, specifically Sprint and T-Mobile in the U.S,"

could also bve as simple as the fact that there are numerous other devices that now utilize the micro sim, for example the Galaxy Tab. T-Mobile ahs always been the other carrier to cover hacked iphones, up until now the 4 was pretty much not an optopmn until the sim was modfied.

 

Add to the fact that t-mobile is likely to become part of AT&T in Q1 2012, the opposition is out weighed by the parties that are for the purchase.  The buypout pot can be sweeten till the opposition is lost, CWA appears to be 100 percent behind the merger.

 

 

T-Mobile is going to be sold or removed one way of the other

 

- Deutsche Telekom indicated multiple times that it was simply no longer willing to commit new capital to T-Mobile

- T-Mobile lacks the resources necessary to develop the 4G LTE high-speed broadband network the company would need to remain competitive.

- The only other suitor for T-Mobile was Sprint, and a Sprint/T-Mobile deal could not work for many reasons, network incompatibility not the least of them. For example, Sprint is still integrating Nextel and would struggle to make the capital expenditures necessary to fully use T-Mobile’s assets

-  “T-Mobile’s parent Deutsche Telekom is not in a position to finance the necessary large scale investments in the U.S. for T-Mobile to remain competitive.” – Phillipp Humm, CEO, T-Mobile USA, in Senate testimony, May 11, 2011.

-  The FCC and independent analysts agree the cost of a fourth generation network would be closer to $10 billion. T-Mobile USA, either with Deutsche Telekom or standing alone, does not have the resources for this type of capital expenditure.
