T-Mobile staff told to support unlocked iPhones
A leaked memo shared online by TmoNews reveals T-Mobile will change its attitude toward its subscribers who use unlocked iPhones on their network. When the iPhone owners call in, T-Mobile staffers are being instructed to handle common procedures. These include information about features and specifications and other basic device questions.
T-Mobile has never offered any version of the iPhone for sale. Some of those users who use their iPhones on T-Mobile's network reportedly even went as far as cutting up their SIM cards to make them fit into the microSIM card slot of the newer iPhone and iPhone 4S. T-Mobile did since get its own microSIM cards, however.
Last spring, Apple was rumored to be testing a T-Mobile version of its handset. The carrier also recently hinted it will support the 3G bands of the next iPhone.
