T-Mobile customers recently inundated the carrier with questions on Twitter about the timing of the nano-SIM card for the iPhone 5. With the arrival of Apple's new product, everyone wants to plunge into the sea of impressions of new technologies. However, the cellular operator is still not an Apple partner. On Thursday, on Twitter, T-Mobile reported good news.
The operator announced that it will have nano-SIM cards that are compatible with the iPhone 5 in mid-October. This enhancement will allow subscribers to get access to the latest smartphone from Apple. Existing subscribers will have to buy an unlocked iPhone 5 (non-lock) for use on the T-Mobile network, prices for which have already been announced.
However, the start of sales of unlocked devices is not reported. It is known that the prices for the unlocked device will not differ from the prices for the iPhone 4 with 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB models.
By the time nano-SIM cards become available, T-Mobile subscribers will only be able to use the 2G EDGE network in the iPhone 5. The company is now actively starting to install new generation 4G HSPA + data transmission equipment throughout the country. Towers are already operating in Seattle, Las Vegas and New York.
In turn, we also expect the prompt appearance of nano-SIM from mobile operators in Russia, Ukraine and Belarus. So far, no relevant official statements have been received from the operators.
