T-Mobile Doesn't Want the iPhone Bad Enough to Make Sacrifices

Sprint made a massive commitment to Apple in order to get the iPhone on its network. Sprint's deal with Apple would pay the iPhone maker $15.5 billion over a four-year period. The only major carrier left in the United States that doesn't have the iPhone on its network is T-Mobile. T-Mobile executives recently stated that while it wants the iPhone on its network, it's not willing to make sacrifices to get the device.

T-Mobile executives specifically hinted that the carrier was not willing to pay the way, Sprint did to get the iPhone. "Make no mistake about it: We would love to carry the iPhone. However, we want the economies to be right for us," said Jim Alling, COO of T-Mobile USA.

Alling did note that T-Mobile has about 1.5 million iPhones operating on its network already. Those phones were brought over by customers from other services to get T-Mobile's SIM-only Value Plan. All 1.5 million of those iPhones are limited on the T-Mobile network to accessing GSM services only.
