T-Mobile event announced, could it be for the T-Mobile iPhone?

176789-tmoeventA T-Mobile event has just been announced, with invitations going out, and rumor has it that the T-Mobile iPhone may be incoming. The above image, which was sent to AllThingsD, states that T-Mobile is “still a wireless company,” but it just is “not going to act like one anymore.” March 26th is the date that’s been set, so we don’t have to wait long to see what it is talking about in this statement. Some are speculating that this event will be used to discuss T-Mo’s switch to value plans (which is the most likely story). Many of you may remember when T-Mobile announced that it will no longer be subsidizing handsets, but will instead offer cheaper plans in trade for not subsidizing devices. Instead, users will buy the device at full price either up front or in monthly installments, then have a cheaper monthly plan.

There also is that MetroPCS merger that was approved by the FCC only a week or so ago. T-Mobile may talk about that alongside the new plans it will be implementing. Another thing that we also know is that T-Mobile is planning to carry the iPhone soon, and this even could be the announcement of when we will see that happening. This is only speculation, however. With this addition, the iPhone will be available on the 4 major carriers in the US alongside Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint. If the T-Mobile iPhone is going to be announced on the network, it also would be a great gateway for the announcement of when T-Mobile’s LTE network will be lit up, which it has said will be prior to the end of this month. It’s looking like a busy second half to the month for Magenta’s customers.

What do you think? Hoping to see a T-Mobile iPhone? What else could you see announced? Let us know in the comments, or tweet me @TiP_Kyle.

    Never know. Could be the rumor about a cheaper i-phone could be an exclusive for T-Mo and there new value plans.

    Get it factory unlocked and you can use it on other carriers and you won’t have issues after updating because it is done through iTunes and is permanent. Visithttp://www.iphonefort-mobile.com/ or email them at: conatct@iPhoneforT-Mobile.com. They were great with unlocking my iPhone. Good luck.

    Does it make sense for Apple to make a iPhone 5 to work on the tmobile LTE network since production for the iPhone 5S is in the works? I feel that they are just going to wait until Tmobile improves their 4G network. Apple wants to keep quiet because they have some surprises to show people in June and September. Tmobile would help boost sales because a lot of people want the iPhone and left the company because they didn’t carry it. The merger with Metro PCS will make them stronger and better than Sprint . The iPhone 5S will have an impact like the Samsung Galaxy S4 with the system update but Apple probably won’t change the size but improve the inside with a better battery, faster processor, and a new camera.
