RadioShack welcomes T-Mobile with open arms

Updated Dec 19th, 2018 6:23PM EST

RadioShack has been partnered with Sprint, Verizon and AT&T for some time now and it looks like the retailer is finally making way for T-Mobile as well. The great thing about third-party retailers is that they can sometimes offer better deals on the same handsets you’d find in corporate retail stores (though third parties sometimes will charge you separately if you cancel). Right now, RadioShack sees about 30% of its revenues coming in from its wireless sales, so it is clearly looking to expand by adding another carrier. Starting August 19th, RadioShack will kick off its new partnership with T-Mobile by hawking the myTouch 3G as well as a good chunk of the standard Tmo crop we would imagine. So people, if you live much closer to a run down strip mall than a T-Mobile retail store, odds are good that you won’t have quite as far to travel next time you’re due for an upgrade.
