Let me briefly explain my frustrations and excitement...
I am a BIG T-Mobile fan (and still is) and was a customer of T-Mobile since 9th grade in high school. Since the iPhone 4 was released I was hoping and praying that T-Mobile would be given the opportunity to sell Apple's iPhone and make it available on their network. During that time I was getting tired of the constant Android and Blackberry OS platform that dominated the mobile device world (aside from Blackberry downfall in their OS system.). Some say that Apple's iOS is boring and the Android "Jelly Bean" platform is more interesting but for me that wasn't true.
After spending about $500 for switching from T-Mobile network (in which I still owe $300+ left to pay and recently missed a payment) to Sprint network and to hear 2-3 months later that T-Mobile will be getting Apple's iPhone 4, 4s and 5 when my contract ended in December of 2013; I was highly annoyed. T-Mobile and I have this love/hate relationship on Twitter. Anyhoo, Sprint has good customer service but at some in-store service centers I do believe that the staff has racist undertones to their staff; that's just from my experience.
I'm excited that T-Mobile is receiving the iPhone because it will bring sales, customers and a better network. It took them a while to get it I think because of legal actions between AT&T and Apple didn't want to give T-Mobile the satisfaction (from what I've heard) and didn't want to reduce the functionality of their phone and make an alternate version of it as well. From a business point of view I completely understand.
I chose this article to blog about because I had complex emotions about it. What can I say; I get kind of emotional when it comes to technology and money. Very geeky right? Lol! All jokes aside I thought that this was very exciting news for T-Mobile, the brand and for their loyal customers. I may not be a T-Mobile contract customer anymore but I do support their business (even though their service stores are as dry as the Sahara desert. Their in-store staff is very humble, friendly, inviting and humorous.).
