Wireless telecommunications provider T-Mobile announced Wednesday it has opened a pre-order period for customers interested in buying the new iPhone 5. Registration is now available through, so that customers can get their smartphone when it becomes available April 12, company officials said.

“At T-Mobile we’re proving that the customer is our priority and we’re offering simple alternatives to their benefit,” said Jorge Martel, general manager of T-Mobile Puerto Rico. “Only those people who register on the site can get the benefit of separating their iPhone 5 before anyone else and enjoy the phone first.”

“We like to offer alternatives that will provide our customers the best mobile communication experience and service,” he said.

The iPhone 5 is the latest version of Apple’s blockbuster smartphone. Once T-Mobile adds it to its portfolio, every wireless carrier in Puerto Rico will be offering the device.

T-Mobile will offer unlimited data plans starting at $69, and will reportedly sell the smartphone for $99.
