The iPhone 5 is not coming to T-Mobile, the company’s CMO told employees at an internal company event.A transcript from the event was leaked to TMO News. (The CMO’s exact quote: “We are not going to get the iPhone 5 this year.”)

Maybe Apple figured it wasn’t worth it because T-Mobile has a small subscriber base, and it could be a part of AT&T in a year or two? Or maybe, Apple was already adding Sprint, so it didn’t think it needed T-Mobile. Whatever the case may be, it’s a bummer for T-Mobile users who want an iPhone.
