T-Mobile to start selling iPhones on April 12
NEW YORK (KABC) -- T-Mobile USA on Tuesday announced that it will start offering the iPhone 5 starting April 12.
The move is expected to be a big boost to T-Mobile, which has been losing customers to companies that sell the iPhone.
The announcement came just days after T-Mobile ditched its contract-based plans in favor of selling phones on an installment basis.
T-Mobile, the fourth-largest of the national U.S. phone companies, will charge $100 up front for the iPhone 5, then another $20 per month for two years.
The total monthly cost with service fees starts at $70 per month, a substantial discount to prices offered by bigger companies.
