T-Mobile sees increased revenue and subscribers in Q2, iPhone doing well on the 'Uncarrier'

T-Mobile has today released their Q2 2013 financial results and it shows a good quarter for the 'Uncarrier' and its iPhone sales. While specific numbers of iPhones sold since T-Mobile first started selling it in April aren't clear, it does account for a pretty good percentage of new customers and upgrade sales.

Revenue climbed 27.5% for the quarter, and subscriber numbers rose by 1.1 million, with revenue increase "primarily due to the inclusion of MetroPCS results for May and June 2013 and higher equipment sales due to record smartphone sales." Specifically speaking of the iPhone, sales accounted for around 29% of T-Mobile's gross customer additions and upgrade smartphone sales for the quarter.

T-Mobile was the last of the big four to start offering the iPhone directly, and it's great to see positive numbers coming from the very first quarter. At this point, we may expect to see sales begin to slow going forward with a new iPhone hopefully on the not too distant horizon, but it's clear that T-Mo has some interest from iPhone customers.

Have you picked up a T-Mobile iPhone this quarter? How are you finding it?

T-Mobile sees increased revenue and subscribers in Q2, iPhone doing well on the 'Uncarrier'


My new iPhone 5 on T-Mobile is fantastic. My HSPA+ data speeds are 15-20 mb down all day. My recent LTE is even faster. I get 25-35 down all day on LTE. I'm very lucky with that kind of choice. Real unlimited data with tethering. T-Mobile in my area (suburb of Boston) is the fastest and most reliable. If you have T-Mobile in your area try them, they are improving so fast, they add towers daily. My iPhone 5 works fantastic on this Carrier, stream Netflix and all video content without buffering issues. Thank You T-Mobile.

can't possibly say enough good things about t-mobile. was a voicestream/t-mobile cutomer for 11 solid years before switching to verizon in 2011 for iphone 4S. When T-mobile offered the iphone 5, I jumped very fast and very high to get one. My entire metro area and them some is blanketed with t-mobile coverage and my Iphone says LTE almost all of the time. I pay aprroximatly $40 less per month with NO RESTRICTIONS. Too many restrictions with verizon. True, most people will never need unlimited calling and text, but it's nice to know that I have it at a much cheaper price than Verizon's restrictive 900 minutes/month and 500 texts/month for $40 more per month. T mobile not only has the iphone 5, but i believe it has the greatest line up of phones in it's history including the HTC one and the new blackberrys. I would recommend t-mobile to anyone looking to get great service a great phone and a much cheaper rate on calling plans. You won't be disappointed.
