I agree with everyone who replied. It's only a matter of time before T-Mobile and Sprint get the iPhone. However, no one knows for sure when. Could be the iPhone 5, could be the iPhone 6 or 7.
Take all rumors --especially Apple-related rumors-- with a grain of salt.

First, AT&T/T-Mobile merger must gain approval from federal oversight (FCC, DoJ, etc)... then, each tower will have to be "touched" as AT&T (2100 mhz) uses different 3G band than T-Mobile (1700 mhz)...
There's still no guarantee that the approval for the merger will be given...

There's also A LOT of legal waters to cover before the FCC would even allow such a merger to happen...and from i've been reading, almost every carrier in the WORLD is doing whatever they can to prevent said merger.
AT&T buying Tmobile is a future prospect like Hank said...certainly something that will WELL post date past the iPhone 5 release.
