As first reported by App Advice, in what could be a sign that T-Mobile USA will soon get the sought-after iPhone – and that’s pretty much a given if their merger with AT&T goes through, the company began selling Micro SIM cards specifically to GSM iPhone customers. Per their website .
Already have a GSM phone or iPhone that you need to activate—or have an unlocked GSM phone you want to use on the T-Mobile network? Just get a Micro SIM card and choose a plan. Slip the ready-to-use Micro SIM Card into your phone and you’re ready to go.
In a rare official confirmation, T-Mobile USA confirmed to 9to5Mac they host over a million unlocked iPhones on their network as of June. As you know, AT&T in March announced intentions to acquire Deutsche Telekom-owned T-Mobile USA in a cash-and-stock transaction valued at approximately $39 billion. The merger would give birth to the nation’s largest wireless company and also formalize a duopoly in the country. This had Sprint officially oppose the merger, ask the government to intervene and threaten “nuke tactics.” Tensions rose last week when Sen. Herb Kohl, D-Wis., who chairs the Senate’s Antitrust Subcommittee, called for regulators to block the proposed merger.
