Next year T-Mobile will finally get the iPhone. It's not even a rumor this time—it's an official announcement from T-Mobile and Apple.

We've been waiting on this for pretty much forever, and not having Apple in its lineup has been pretty hard on T-Mobile. Now the three people still on the carrier are pretty pleased. The deal between Apple and T-Mobile is good from 2013-2015, and while they only state that it's going to offer "Apple products" the iPhone is a pretty safe bet. [Deutsche Telekom]

Update: T-Mobile CECO John Legere has confirmed that the deal does, in fact, include the iPhone.

Unlimited data plans are where it's at. I've been grandfathered on ATT's unlimited iPhone plan forever, and even though we are treated like their worst customers, eventually I think they'll be forced to provide true unlimited data to grandfathered customers. I think they know this and thats one of the reasons they're trying to get people to switch.

T-Mo has an excellent opportunity here if they keep the price low and offer unlimited data with no caps or throttling. I would've jumped ship this year if T-Mo had it and could guarantee me unlimited data. Sprint is the worst by far, so bad that even their unlimited data won't get customers.
