T-Mobile starting iPhone Readiness campaign for unlocked devices?

The folks over at our sister site TmoNews have just posted up some pictures showing a document regarding a rumored “iPhone Readiness” program. The program is part of T-Mobile’s efforts in readying its employees for support of unlocked iPhone devices. The goal of this program is to let customers have a simple and easy transition over to the T-Mobile network. There are a few prerequisites you must have first, outlined here by David:

…including having a microSIM, which can likely be obtained directly from T-Mobile during the activation process, an unlocked iPhone provided by the customer, and T-Mobile service, either current or activating.

During the process, the customer will be asked to reset the phone, however it will not be required. The second step of the activation, after the user has either reset the device or not, will be provisioning the device using Apple’s Enterprise Tool for use on the T-Mobile network. The final step is installing what most likely is a provisioning profile that will load the T-Mobile MMS, SMS, and iMessage settings onto the device. Employees are then instructed to test the phone before the customer leaves.

As hopeful as T-Mobile may be to attract iOS customers, as seen in the image below they are going to actively attempt to persuade people away from iOS, by preparing to “sell against the iPhone 5.” All I have to say is, good luck with that.

What do you think? Are you planning on putting an iPhone on TMO? Do you already use TMO for your iPhone? Let us know in the comments.

  • LeeBruhGreene

    @aDropofReality See… I didn’t even realize that was what I was looking it… WOW.

  • aDropofReality

    @LeeBruhGreene yeah, Windows Phone is pretty but a lot of people don’t seem to like it since its really different and may be bland to some

  • LeeBruhGreene

    @aDropofReality IDK how it’s boring. How is it boring? Lol.

  • aDropofReality

    @LeeBruhGreene the tiles. People don’t like metro but Microsoft is forcing it down our throats (xbox, windows, windows phone)

  • LeeBruhGreene

    @aDropofReality Hmm. And how do YOU feel about all that?

  • aDropofReality

    @LeeBruhGreene I don’t agree but I can kinda see their point.

  • LeeBruhGreene

    @aDropofReality Hmm. I still want my iPhone. How bad are the data plans with the other carriers?

  • LeeBruhGreene

    @aDropofReality I mean… I KNOW what they’re like… But IDK which one is the least of the multiple evils.

  • aDropofReality

    @LeeBruhGreene idk you should look it up. But I’m getting the next after the next iPhone.

  • LeeBruhGreene

    @aDropofReality Lmao @ you should look it up. I have looked it up. Numerous times.

  • aDropofReality

    @LeeBruhGreene try a sprint phone. Since they have all the nice unlimited stuff and things.

  • LeeBruhGreene

    @aDropofReality And you have Verizon? I’m jealous of the fact that my boyfriend has had Verzion so long, that he has unlimited for his 4S.

  • aDropofReality

    @LeeBruhGreene lmao if you got verizon last year, you’d have it also. I’ll have to get a limited plan on 4G tho

  • LeeBruhGreene

    @aDropofReality Yes, yes, I would. :( You will, huh? Hadn’t even thought of that.

  • aDropofReality

    @LeeBruhGreene yeah, I won’t care tho. I don’t actually use THAT much data.

  • LeeBruhGreene

    @aDropofReality I’m beginning to think that I don’t use THAT much data… T-Mobile has only given me the ‘you’ve run out of high speed’

  • LeeBruhGreene

    @aDropofReality message like twice…

  • aDropofReality

    @LeeBruhGreene dead @ that. They don’t slow down speeds on Verizon lol.

  • LeeBruhGreene

    @aDropofReality I know. Lol. That’s what I dislike about T-Mobile and possibly other data plans. A nigga just wants to be truly unlimited.

  • aDropofReality

    @LeeBruhGreene that costs a LOT to upkeep so that’s why their fading away. I bet you sprint will abandon them soon even this it’s

  • aDropofReality

    @LeeBruhGreene the point of their ads nowadays.
