Celebrate Earth Day with a Natural Wood iPhone 5 Case from ZAGG

ZAGG's new iPhone 5 case made of real wood is now available for purchase. The fashionable case is made from environmentally friendly materials that are fused with thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) so it won't crack or peel. The case is a great way to celebrate Earth Day while guarding your iPhone from damage. The Natural Wood Case from ZAGG is available in six different patterns and designs.

The Natural Wood Case for the iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S 4 is sold through ZAGG's subsidiary iFrogz, which was created in 2006. You can order the real wood iPhone 5 case via ZAGG.com/ifrogz.

Pre-Order the T-Mobile iPhone

Pre-orders for the iPhone 5 are now open at T-Mobile.com. You can purchase a shiny new iPhone 5 with no contract for $99 down and 24 payments of $20. That's $579 over two-years, and $70 less than buying an unlocked model directly from Apple.

The 24 payments of $20 will be added on top of your monthly service charges. T-Mobile's Simple Choice plans start at $50 per month for unlimited talk, text and 500MB of data. Each additional 2GB of data is $10 up to 12.5GB for $110. The T-Mobile iPhone is locked, but you can trade it in for a new device at anytime for "fair market credit". This also means you will need T-Mobile's permission if you decide to switch carriers, and will be required to payoff any remaining balance that you owe for the device.

AT&T to Support iPhone 5 Wideband Audio (HD Voice)

T-Mobile not only announced that it was going to officially offer the iPhone 5, but the carrier explained it would fully support Wideband Audio. This marks the first time the feature touted by Apple at the iPhone 5 keynote event would be supported in the US. Now AT&T remarks that it too will roll out support for the feature, also known as HD Voice, later this year.

As AT&T continues to expand its LTE data network, the company plans to start sending voice calls over this network which will provide Wideband Audio capabilities for iPhone 5 owners. When Apple first announced the feature in fall 2012, only 20 carriers worldwide supported the feature. For its part, iPhone carrier Sprint is also planning to offer HD Voice down the line.

T-Mobile Announces iPhone 5 With No Annual Contracts

The iPhone 4, 4S and 5 will be available to T-Mobile customers starting on April 12th. Online pre-orders will open on April 5th through T-Mobile.com. All three iPhone models will be offered contract free for a small down payment. Qualifying customers can nab an iPhone 4 through T-Mobile's new Simple Choice Plan for $15, and pay it off in $15 monthly installments for 24 months. The iPhone 4S will cost $70, and the iPhone 5 will set you back $100. Both the iPhone 4S and 5 will cost $20 per month until they device is paid off in two-years. The $15 and $20 monthly payments will be added on top of any normal data service charges. You can read more about T-Mobile's new no contract service plans here.

UPDATE: The iPhone 4 and 4S will only be available in "select markets".

T-Mobile Uncarrier Event

T-Mobile claims its new "uncarrier" model gives cell phone users more freedom, but customers will have to finish paying for their device if they decided to switch carriers, or upgrade to a newer model. However, customers will be able to keep making monthly payments, or trade-in a device for "fair market credit". All phones will also be sold locked, so people will need T-Mobile's permission if they decided to keep the phone and move to a new carrier.

The iPhone will play a "prominent role" at today's T-Mobile "Uncarrier" event being held in New York City, according to CNET. T-Mobile is expected to use the iPhone to showcase its new no-contract service plans which were rolled out over the weekend.

The carrier hopes its new no-subsidy model will attract customers since they can pay for smartphones and data in smaller monthly installments. This will allow customers to avoid restrictive two-year contracts and costly data plans by paying for new devices such as the iPhone 5 themselves. T-Mobile is also expected to roll out its new 4G LTE network on Tuesday.
