As a long-time T-Mobile customer, I’m just about giddy knowing that T-Mobile is going to be fully supporting and selling the iPhone 5. This comes along with their complete change in how they manage plans, that being that all plans will be no-contract. CNet revealed a couple things this means for those purchasing a 5 through T-Mobile, namely unlimited FaceTime for those with an unlimited data plan and HD Voice.

The base price will also be a bit cheaper than Apple’s retail for an unlocked model. Here’s a comparison:

iPhone 5 (16GB)
T-Mobile price: $579; $99 deposit and 24 payments of $20
Apple price (unlocked): $649
AT&T price (with one-year contract): $649
Sample Amazon price (unlocked): $640

iPhone 5 (32GB) T-Mobile price: $679; $199 deposit and 24 payments of $20
Apple price (unlocked): $749
Sample Amazon price (unlocked): $789

iPhone 5 (64GB) T-Mobile price: $779; $299 deposit and 24 payments of $20
Apple price (unlocked): $849
Sample Amazon price (unlocked): $799

It will be curious to see how this impacts T-Mobile’s market share. And I’d love to test it T-Mobile if you’re interested!
