On Friday, T-Mobile began selling Apple’s most recent smartphone refresh, the iPhone 5.
Long lines and enthusiastic iPhone 5 buyers were seen at T-Mobile stores around the U.S.
Following years of rumors suggesting the inevitability, late last month subscribers of T-Mobile learned they will finally gain long-awaited access to Apple’s flagship touchscreen device.
The nation’s fourth largest carrier will now be afforded the opportunity to better compete with AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint – each of which has offered the iPhone for a considerably lengthy period of time already.
The device will have access to T-Mobile’s 4G LTE network, available in several markets across the US.
At the company’s March “uncarrier” event, T-Mobile confirmed plans to offer a 16-gigabyte iPhone 5 for just $99 up front, followed by 20 monthly payments of $20.
