T-Mobile USA Loses 557,000 Subscribers In Q2

Posted Aug 9, 2012

As the one out of the four major U.S. telecommunications companies that does not offer the iPhone, Deutsche Telekom subsidiary T-Mobile USA has announced their Q2 2012 financial results.  Not having the iPhone has cost them dearly because they lost 557,000 customers from the postpaid plans.

In Q1 2012, T-Mobile added 187,000 new customers.  The good news for T-Mobile is that they added 227,000 customers on the prepaid side of the business.  I’m sure a good number of those customers have an unlocked iPhone.

T-Mobile USA’s Q2 net income is up 3.5% over the previous quarter, but that number is down by 2.4% from the same quarter last year.
