T-Mobile USA has some good news for the iPhone lovers. They are offering the latest iPhone 5 without any down payment to customers in exchange for their iPhone 4 and 4S smartphones.
The trader had earlier announced the scheme in which iPhone 5 can be bought for $100 down payment and monthly payments of $20 for 24 months. But now the down payment has been removed with only requirement being the monthly instalments. The new plan can also help the customers earn $120 credits which will depend on trade-in value of the device. This amount could be used in making monthly payments, existing T-Mobile bill, or the purchase of accessories or another device.
The U.S. wireless operation of Deutsche Telekom has been making all efforts to attract customers from its competitors like AT&T, Verizon Wireless and Sprint Nextel by offering the iPhone 5 for the first time in US without usual annual contracts.

T-Mobile USA is the fourth largest operator with customer base of around 34 million mobile customers by the end of the first quarter, after AT&T, Verizon and Sprint. Also merger of MetroPCS Communications, a small mobile operator, with T-Mobile was cleared by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission last month and in this week the shareholders will vote on it. If the merger takes effect, it will boost T-Mobile's subscriber base.
