T-Mobile USA to get iPhone 3GS, but not 4? Thanks to the editor-in-chief of Wired, Chris Anderson, T-Mobile USA may be getting the iPhone 3GS later this year, breaking AT&T's multiple-year exclusivity on the popular smartphone.
Reads the tweet: "A T-Mobile manager casually mentioned to me that they're going to get the iPhone 3GS (but not 4, oddly) later this year. Common knowledge?"

While this is not the first rumor placing T-Mobile with iPhones, it is the first to suggest that the carrier will only get the older 3GS model.

AT&T still sells the 8GB iPhone 3GS for $99 with contract so it would be logical to assume that T-Mobile will offer the device at near the same price.

To offer an iPhone for T-Mobile, Apple would have to modify the device, as it currently does not support T-Mobile's 3G frequencies at 1700MHz and 2100MHz.

I'll take the 39s. Keep me from having to upgrade to an android phone all thought hspa+ is real tempting.

Another money making scheme by apple. If you have old stock and love creating binding contracts this would be what any organisation would like to do.
