T-Mobile still doesn’t have the iPhone even as Apple adds 5 regional carriers that will start providing Apple’s iconic mobile device to their subscribers. I know that the reason has more to do with the technical GSM deployment rather than Apple simply unwilling to make this happen. Or maybe T-Mobile simply did not give Apple enough financial incentive to make iPhones that will take advantage of T-Mobile’s 3G network. For speculation sake, let’s suppose there is another reason why Apple has yet to make the iPhone available on T-Mobile’s network.
Apple wants to show carriers what happens when they don’t deal with Apple on its terms when it comes to the iPhone.
