MetroPCS expands sales of Apple's iPhone line to all of US

T-Mobile's prepaid MetroPCS brand on Friday began nationwide sales of Apple's current iPhone range, plus the iPhone 5s, following a soft launch in Florida.

Pricing is identical to that offered for the July 1 Florida debut. The iPhone 6s sells for $649 and up, with the 6s Plus starting at $749. The iPhone SE is available for $349 with a $50 instant rebate on the 16GB configuration, while the iPhone 5s is $199.

The iPhone 6s, 6s Plus, and SE are all sold new. The condition of iPhone 5s models available from the carrier is unclear at this time.

MetroPCS has a much narrower device and plan selection than T-Mobile. While T-Mobile's core Simple Choice plans start at $50, however, MetroPCS plans begin at $30, and the carrier will take an additional $60 off a device purchase if a customer ports an existing phone number to the service.

In 2013, T-Mobile CEO John Legere said that the iPhone would ultimately come to MetroPCS, but that it wasn't going to happen quickly. When T-Mobile acquired MetroPCS, Legere claimed that there were branding positioning and marketing issues to consider.
