What can you hope for when you’re the last major U.S. carrier to get the iPhone? That at least a few people get in line to buy one on launch day.

Considering that the iPhone 5 has been out since last fall, you wouldn’t expect many lines to be forming outside of T-Mobile stores today. But surprisingly enough, people are showing up. “Uncarrier” FTW!!!

T-Mobile officially started selling the iPhone 5 in its stores around the country today, and potential customers are being drawn in with an attractive trade-in program. Off-contract iPhone 4 or 4S owners can bring their devices in and swap them out for a free iPhone 5 on T-Mobile’s network. It also helps that the carrier is selling the iPhone 5 at $99 with no-interest, monthly payments of $20 for 24 months.
