(AP) - NEW LINE: T-Mobile will likely start carrying the iPhone next year after parent company Deutsche Telekom said it reached a deal with Apple Inc. to bring its products to market.
JOINING THE CLUB: T-Mobile USA had been the lone iPhone-less carrier among the four U.S. national wireless companies. AT&T Inc., Verizon Wireless and Sprint Nextel Corp., already sell the iPhone, as do many smaller ones.
DROPPED CALL: Apple spokeswoman Natalie Harrison confirmed the agreement but would not comment further. In an email, T-Mobile also wouldn't mention the iPhone by name, saying only that more details are to come.
