With the iPhone 5, T-Mobile is actually getting its own version of the phone, supporting its unique spectrum bands, meaning that the device supports all of the company’s high-speed options. It will also support HD Voice, a feature that Apple included with iPhone 5 but hasn’t yet been supported by U.S. carriers.

The phone will sell for $99 down and $20 per month for 24 months.

T-Mobile will also have the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S in select markets. However, the older iPhones won’t support T-Mobile’s AWS bands, meaning they will work at full speeds only in cities where T-Mobile has added support for carrying high-speed data over the same frequencies used by AT&T. (T-Mobile currently has done so in 49 areas.)

The iPhone 4S will be priced at $69.99 down and $20 per month for 24 months, while the iPhone 4 will cost $14.99 upfront and $15 a month for 24 months. Those will also be available April 12, we’re told.

The carrier is taking sign-ups for the iPhone 5 on its website.

Just as the atom bomb was the weapon that was supposed to render war obsolete, the Internet seems like capitalism’s ultimate feat of self-destructive genius, an economic doomsday device rendering it impossible for anyone to ever make a profit off anything again. It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
