Eager T-Mobile customers wait no more: The iPhone 5 is finally on sale.

The big pink carrier began accepting pre-orders for the super-popular Apple smartphone on Friday. Over the last few years, the iPhone has been available on all other major U.S. networks except T-Mobile, but that is set to change.

Pre-orders for the T-Mobile iPhone 5 are to arrive to users on April 12, the same day it goes on sale in stores.

They can also pay $199.99 plus the payments, or $679.99 total, for a 32-gigabyte model or $299.99 plus the payments, for a $779.99 total, for a 64-gigabyte model.
