The iPhone 5 is not ready for sale officially unlocked yet, but that does not mean T-Mobile is not ready to be your service provider. It seems this week many T-Mobile stores have received their first shipments of the iPhone 5-friendly Nano-SIMs TmoNews has confirmed. These Nano-SIMs will work perfectly with the Verizon-variant of the iPhone 5 as it is technically unlocked out of the box.
