T-Mobile makes nano-SIMs for iPhone 5 available T-Mobile has begun stocking nano-SIM cards for unlocked iPhone 5 owners.
Despite not being an official carrier, the company has made it a priority to woo iPhone owners over.

Unfortunately for most of the U.S., the iPhone 5 is not supported on T-Mobile's 3G or 4G AWS bands, making it almost useless given 2G/EDGE's slow speeds. However, T-Mobile has iPhone-supported 4G HSPA+ (1900 band) in major markets Seattle, Las Vegas, and New York City, with more cities gaining access in the near future. The carrier hopes to have migrated to the 1900 band nationwide by the Q1 of next year.

Additionally, you will need to get access to an unlocked device, or unlock it yourself when the methods become available.

Apple recently unveiled the iPhone 5, which features a 4-inch Retina Display, a new A6 processor, a new 'Lightning' dock connector, the nano-SIM slot, iOS 6, LTE support and a thinner frame.
