T-Mobile to Sell Apple Products in 2013 – iPhone Inbound?

Deutsche Telekom confirmed on Thursday that T-Mobile USA will begin selling Apple products next year.

T-Mobile expanded its 4G coverage to 14 new cities, the carrier said on Thursday, bringing its total to 37 major markets utilizing the 1900 MHz band around the U.S. Better, though, is the fact that iPhone owners looking to defect from their parent carrier will have more welcoming placea to go—and a cheaper option to boot.

In conjunction with the increased expansion, T-Mobile also highlighted that iPhone users can go the pre-paid unlimited route, if they so desire, through Solavei for $49 a month. That certainly isn’t the worst deal in the world if there’s coverage in your area. The smaller no-contract MVNO joined up with T-Mobile earlier this year, and has already amassed a 100,000 member following.

“The network enhancements give our current and future members the ability to use their unlocked iPhones and other AT&T/4G smartphones at the highest possible speeds in even more cities,” said Ryan Wuerch, founder and CEO of Solavei.

Below are the cities that have access to Solavei’s $49 per month unlimited voice, text, and data:

  • New York City
  • Newark
  • Boston
  • Philadelphia
  • Detroit
  • Dallas
  • Fort Worth
  • Austin
  • San Antonio
  • Tampa
  • Baltimore
  • Houston
  • Kansas City
