Nice catch by Eric Slivka at MacRumors:
T-Mobile USA today announced earnings results for the fourth quarter of 2011, revealing a net loss of over 800,000 contract subscribers during the quarter. The carrier, which is now the only one of the four major U.S. carriers to not carry the iPhone, specifically blamed the launch of the iPhone 4S for the defections, mentioning the iPhone by name seven times in its release.
7 times means someone was bitter about a deal that went sour. Of all the carriers to have the iPhone after AT&T, T-Mobile would have been the easiest to implement due to using GSM technology. But let’s not forget about the epic breakup that occurred between them last year. That’s likely the main reason the deal never came to fruition.
