T-Mobile is sad that it doesn’t have the iPhone. With Sprint rumored to get the iPhone 5 next month, T-Mobile will be the only main carrier left out in the cold.

T-Mobile Chief Marketing Office Cole Brodman has issued an open letter to all T-Mobile customers about the iPhone. Brodman makes it clear that T-Mobile values its customers and wants the iPhone on its network…

“We’ve heard from many customers who love their T-Mobile service, but are disappointed that we don’t carry the iPhone. To these customers, first, thank you for your business.  Please know that we think the iPhone is a great device and Apple knows that we’d like to add it to our line-up. Today, there are over a million T-Mobile customers using unlocked iPhones on our network. We are interested in offering all of our customers a no-compromise iPhone experience on our network.”

T-Mobile declined to make any comments about its negotiations with Apple, or when the iPhone could possibly make its way to the network. AT&T is currently in the process of trying to acquire T-Mobile, so that red tape may have interfered with Apple’s ability to offer the iPhone on T-Mobile’s network.

Brodman touted T-Mobile’s line of Android handsets as phones that can “rival or beat” any other smartphone on the market.

The iPhone 5 hasn’t hit the market.. yet. Just wait, T-Mobile.

    That’s one of the worst letters from a CEO I’ve ever seen.

    “Allow me to appease you by shifting blame onto Apple without providing any details as to why they might be to blame, then shove the inferior Android line down your throat.” is all I heard..

    What an ass.

      CMO*, whatever.

  • John doe

    Im one of the million that use an unlocked iphone on T MOBILE when I travel to the USA

  • Drock

    So sad so sorry!!!!! Maybe next time.

  • Soto

    T-mobile CMO = Fail!

  • Manster

    Why didn’t the CMO just keep his mouth shut, and just work vigorously on getting an IPhone into their lineup?

    I am one of the million of people that do use an IPhone on T-Mobile and it has been great (and people, it is MUCH easier than you may think to get an IPhone on the T-Mobile network). As for me, whether T-Mobile offers the IPhone officially or not is irrelevant as long as they keep their prices, and don’t get gobbled up by AT&T a.k.a The Dark Side!

    AT&T sucks…..

    Tmobile should focus on faster data before worring about getting top grade cell phones CMO needs better service before providing the customers with better hardware !

  • shadow

    You people using unlocked IPhones on tmo, do you have 3g access? I thought the tmo network used different frequencies not covered by the iPhone antenna?

    • Tnobile

      They don’t get 3G they get Edge 1800mhz baseband lmao Tmobile has 4g baseband hahahah same 4g sprint has just better coverage you know the imitation LTE

      • ReanimationXP

        WTF are you talking about? Baseband resides on the phone. Tmobile has GSM+ and are stupid enough to call it “4g”. Sprint is using CDMA and actually shares towers with Verizon, but does not get the benefit of Verizon’s LTE service.

        Verizon is currently the fastest, ATT is second, Sprint isn’t terrible and is probably 3rd, and Tmobile is shit tier.

      • Niceone

        Douche that’s called roaming cause sprint has 1 tower in the entire continent of the US

    • Tnobile

      They don’t get 3G they get Edge 1800mhz baseband lmao Tmobile has 4g baseband same 4g sprint has just better coverage you know the imitation LTE

    +1 Tmobile needs to improve before even begging for an iPhone , Verizon had to wait in line to beg for what at&t had for years and they also had to improve before getting there first 4th gen iPhone . Tmobile will get there first 7th gen iPhone keep improving and begging it will happen one day and they as Verizon did will have to improve there service first

  • Toshi

    They have, in my country 😉
