T-Mobile’s Q2 results are in, and things continue to be looking up. The uncarrier has reported an addition of 1.1 million new subscribers from May to July, as well as 688,000 branded postpaid net additions.

T-Mobile continues to pull bold industry-changing moves such as the introduction of its JUMP! program, and while some folks might consider some of these changes to be gimmicks, customers are clearly taking notice.

[quote qtext=”T-Mobile’s Un-carrier approach has clearly resonated with consumers. By fixing the things that drive them mad, like contracts and upgrades, and freeing them from the two-year sentences imposed on them by our competitors, they are choosing the new T-Mobile in unprecedented numbers.” qperson=”John Legere” qsource=”T-Mobile CEO” qposition=”center”]

Beyond adding plenty of new subscribers to its network, T-Mobile also seems to reporting some impressive results for Samsung’s latest flagship, the Galaxy S4.

T-Mobile indicates that more than 600,000 Galaxy S4 handsets were sold through the uncarrier this quarter. At first glance this might not seem as impressive as how many units Apple managed to snag with the iPhone, but let’s think about this for a minute.

T-Mobile reports 900,000 iPhones sold, but that seems to suggest all models – so that’s really the total sales of three different models. If you added up the Galaxy S2, S3 and S4, we can’t pretty much guarantee that you’d at least match this amount. So much for the idea that Samsung’s Galaxy S4 might not be doing so well.

What do you think of the Galaxy S4’s T-Mobile sales figures, surprised? How about T-Mobile’s growth, will it last?

    T-Mobile doesn’t sell any other iPhones other than the 5. How can you say that’s with the other ones included?

      T-mobile sells iphone 4, 4S, and 5(it’s in their website). Their top seller is S2, which means S series easily outsells iphones.
