T-Mobile UK to get iPhone 4

updated 11:55 am EDT, Tue June 8, 2010

First official iPhone for British carrier

T-Mobile UK will sell the iPhone 4, the company has announced. Dates, prices and subscription plans are expected to be released at a later time, but the carrier is likely to ship on June 24th, the first global launch window. The device will also mark T-Mobile UK's first official entry into iPhone sales; the company has reportedly engaged in under-the-table offers to keep high-paying customers.

The iPhone 4 arrangement is almost certainly possible as a result of T-Mobile UK's merger with Orange UK, which has carried the iPhone 3GS since last year. Both parties will at least have to compete with rival carriers O2 and Vodafone. Still without the iPhone in the region are 3 and Virgin Mobile; this may change, though, as 3 has simply said "no comment" in response to inquiries, and a Virgin representative has admitted that the company is in talks with Apple. Virgin operates on T-Mobile UK's network.

    I stand corrected

    I posted a while ago about how a T-Mobile loyalty rep told me this was going to happen back in February. I really thought he was lying to get me to re-sign my contract for another 12 months. I stand corrected - although it's not worth it unless they actually fully merge with Orange as Orange's coverage is far superior to T-Mobile.
