NEW YORK (AP) - T-Mobile will likely start carrying the iPhone next year after its parent company, Deutsche Telekom, says it has reached a new deal with Apple.
T-Mobile USA had been the lone iPhone holdout among the four national wireless carriers in the U.S. Although it has been possible to use iPhones on T-Mobile networks, customers had to provide the phones themselves. The three larger carriers, AT&T Inc., Verizon Wireless and Sprint Nextel Corp., already sell the iPhone, as do many smaller ones.
Deutsche Telekom said Thursday that T-Mobile will add Apple products to its portfolio in the coming year. Though it didn't mention the iPhone by name in its press release, that's the product it is most likely referring to. It's possible T-Mobile will also sell a cellular version of the iPad.
