No obligations, no charges, no upfront payments, no anything. Well, almost anything. “We think everybody should cheat on their carrier and enjoy every minute of it” said John Legere during the event when he started talking about the promotion.

John’s answer as to why an iPhone was simple, they found that not a lot of people know T-Mobile even carries the iPhone and second ...
