iPad Air 2 gold apps running

Keeping true to its promise, T-Mobile, the nation’s fourth-largest carrier, on Wednesday announced that customers can now buy Apple’s iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 in participating T-Mobile stores and online. The new tablets are available in Wi-Fi-only and cellular flavors and in all three colors.

The top-of-the-line iPad Air 2 model with 128 gigabytes of storage is not yet available, leaving early adopters to choose between 16GB and 64GB iPad Air 2 models. The iPad mini 3 is available in 16/64/128GB storage flavors.

The new tablets are available with $0 down for Simple Choice plan customers with monthly payments. As a reminder, customers can add a tablet and match the data on their Simple Choice voice plan, up to five gigabytes per month, for just $10 more per month, per line.

Outspoken T-Mobile CEO John Legere said yesterday that iPhones now account for 20 percent of T-Mobile’s smartphone base while hinting that his company saw unusual demand for the larger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 model.

The Apple SIM introduced in the cellular versions of the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 allows customers to switch seamlessly between data providers, with some caveats. Because not all carriers are playing ball, Legere recommends that would-be shoppers pick up their new iPads through Apple, and activate them with T-Mobile.

    It should also be noted: 200 MB of free 4G LTE data for tablets bought through T-Mobile. Or even if you have a tablet that you didn’t buy through T-Mobile, but it’s GSM based, you can get 200 MB free for life. No strings attached. Only thing you have to pay for is a T-Mobile sim card. (I did the research this morning)

      Yeah that’s what they say but when I tried they said you need a t-mobile plan to get the service. As soon as you reach the 200MB limit you also have no service so it’s useless.

      If you compare it to the fact that I pay AT&T $15/month for 250MB its actually pretty good. I am leaving AT&T today coincidentally and switching over to T-Mobile where I’ll have 1GB of data for the same price!

      • Rowan09

        Damn you pay $15 for 250MB, that should be illegal.

      • Fanboy 

        Yup, its their cheapest data plan. I just wanted to avoid paying the whole tablet upfront, but now that T-Mobile offers 1GB for $20, and its unlimited so even though the speed gets reduced I can still use it I am definitely switching over! Not to mention that streaming music doesnt count towards your 4G on T-Mobile! 😀

        My only hold back to switching cellular providers, is coverage. :/

      • Reb00t

        In denmark I got 1 GB data for $11,68/month and max is 200 GB data for $50,76/month

    I’d get one but between my 6+ and MacBook Pro, I’m pretty much covered.
