Like it was the case with previous iPhone models, the latest iPhone 4S is not carried by T-Mobile. After news that regional carrier C Spire will indeed have the iPhone 4S, T-Mobile said that the phone does still not support its 3G and 4G frequencies, answering questions as per why it was missing from the line-up.
Senior Vice President of Marketing for T-Mobile, Andrew Sherrard, said that “T-Mobile thinks the iPhone is a good device and we’ve expressed our interest to Apple to offer it to our customers. Ultimately, it is Apple’s decision”. In reality, like with the case of previous iPhone models, the current Apple-phone does not pack a technology that works on T-Mobile’s 1,700MHz frequency. While T-Mobile believes “a capable version of the iPhone for our 3G and 4G networks would offer an additional compelling option for our customers on a fast 4G network”, “the iPhone is not the only option to experience the benefit that smartphones offer”.
