T-Mobile responds to C Spire getting iPhone
Earlier this week we reported that C Spire Wireless, a tiny carrier with just 1 million subscribers was set to become the fourth provider in the U.S. to get the iPhone 4S.

T-Mobile, which has 33.6 million subscribers, is the fourth largest carrier in the nation and the only major to not have the Apple smartphone.



Says the company:

We think the iPhone is a good device and we've expressed our interest to Apple to offer it to our customers. Ultimately, it is Apple's decision. The issue remains that Apple has not developed a version of the iPhone with technology that works on our fast 3G and 4G networks.

We believe a capable version of the iPhone for our 3G and 4G networks would offer an additional compelling option for our customers on a fast 4G network. However, the iPhone is not the only option to experience the benefit that smartphones offer.


For now, T-Mobile says they believe their "portfolio will give any iPhone a run for its money," and points out that a lot of their Android devices have better specs, regardless.

    I can certainly see their point...T-Mobile 4G is crazy fast...using a 3G phone with that network would be like using a Geo Metro on a race track.

I'm not trying to bash, but my friend has gone through 6 of those. I wouldn't really trust LG after some home appliances going the way of the dino so quickly. But hey good for you man.

    Good luck with the G2x, I can tell you (I'm in a position to know) its a horrible phone. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
