Forget Verizon, the iPhone is coming to T-Mobile. We're 80 percent sure.
The German telephone company will be the first cellular home for the popular Apple phone that doesn't start with the letter A, Cult of Mac is reporting.
The everything Apple blog quoted an unnamed "highly placed source at the wireless company" saying there is an 80 percent chance that T-Mobile will be the next home of the iPhone by the end of this year.
But the move would not necessarily kill off a rumored jump to Verizon early next year. Opening the door for one network, could open the floodgates for others.
Like Verizon, T-Mobile has been linked with Steve Jobs' tech child before. A T-Mobile official said earlier this year that he wanted the iPhone on his network by year's end.
