Rumors are that Apple will come out with an iPhone capable of running on T-Mobile’s 3G/4G network, and today T-Mobile took the first steps in the Apple/T-Mobile partnership. T-Mobile is now giving free Micro SIM cards to its customers.

This news comes after T-Mobile announced they have over one million unlocked iPhones on their network. It has been over a month since Apple started selling unlocked iPhone 4s in the US that work on T-Mobile’s EDGE network.

Since T-Mobile’s SIM card does work on the iPhone 4, this SIM will also work on the 3G iPad for data usage. On the T-Mobile website, the Micro SIM card is described as:

“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.”

This is good news for people like me, who have an unlocked iPhone, but had to cut the SIM down to fit in the iPhone 4. I can see T-Mobile doing this because of Apple releasing an unlocked iPhone in the US. Making it easy for unlocked iPhone users to join T-Mobile is a smart move.

Keep in mind that T-Mobile and AT&T are still set to merge as one carrier in the coming year, so this should all look different a year from now.

T-Mobile’s new Micro SIM card is available for on the carrier’s website.

What are your thoughts on this? Will you be getting a Micro SIM from T-Mobile? Leave it in the comments below.

    I will for sure. I have a 3GS but want to jump into a 4 or hopefully a iPhone 5

    • MALdito

      I agree!

  • Badlands

    Wait. This doesn’t mean that my iPhone 4 can run on Tmobile 3G right? It only means I dont have to cut another sim right? I love my iPhone 4 so much. The only thing that suck is Edge speed. Give me an unlocked jailbroken iPhone 4 on tmobile 3G and I’m in paradise. That would be the only reason for me to upgrade to another iPhone 5. I already have a playstation on my iPhone, how fast do you need it?

    • Omar

      Yes you’re right. It be nice to be able to be on 3G speeds but don’t hold your breath at least for now. I love T mobile service but would love to have an iPhone on 3G speed. It that really to much to ask? They have over a million iPhone’s on their network! Need to say more?

  • anthony oneal

    How can you get a unlocked iphone 4???

    • Jacob

      You either jailbreak and unlock it or buy it unlocked from Apple (in the US, at least).

    • Don

      Apple sells the iPhone 4 unlocked, but with no carrier subsidy you’ll pay $649 or $749.

  • Jacksparrow

    Do you get 3G speed on ipad2 with this? If so I’d get one and pay t mobile month to month if their data only plan is cheaper then the big ole T

  • I can hardly believe that you you dont have the micro sim jet. I have Ân iPhone 4 since release and At THE Same time an Tmobile micro sim. What can be THE reason that you are behind ?

    • Dennis

      I was used that form t-mobile long time ago. But I did not like that t-mobile. Because the t-mobile was not fast It was sucker slow

  • People, STOP ASKING IF YOU’LL GET 3G SPEEDS ON T-MOBILE WITH ANY IPHONE OR IPAD. The answer is the fourteenth and fifteenth letters of the alphabet (N+O = NO!) Every iPhone and 3G iPad are only capable of 3G connectivity on networks that support the 850mhz and 2100mhz networks – which in the USA is *only* AT&T. T-Mobile operates on the 900mhz and 1800mhz bands for 3G, so really, do the math: if bandwidths aren’t 850mhz or 2100mhz, since T-Mobile only has 900mhz and 2100mhz bands, what do you think? EDGE connectivity is all you’ll get. PERIOD. There is absolutely NO way to change that, period. No hack, nothing – it’s a HARDWARE LIMITATION. Until and unless Apple comes out with a T-Mobile specific iPhone/iPad, or an iPhone/iPad that operates on multiple network bands, you CANNOT GET 3G SPEEDS ON T-MOBILE WITH ANY IPHONE OR IPAD!

  • Neb1ss

    I think you will find that the iPhone is quad band and supports all the frequencies you mentioned. This is why you can roam in Europe with the iPhone. Tmobile in fact runs their 3G network on 1700.

  • i have cut my t-mobile contract sim for my iphone4 but doesnt wrk any help? plzzzzzzz
