Following in the footsteps of Verizon, it looks like T-Mobile is the newest carrier to jump on Team Samsung in regards to Apple’s patent infringement case asking to ban the sale of Samsung products in the US. T-Mo filed their own amicus brief supporting Samsung by contending that a ban of Samsung products would cause “unnecessary harm” with the holiday season right around the corner, T-Mobile would be unable to find replacement products in time.

It may be too little, too late seeing how Apple pushed for a preliminary ban back in July and noted that T-Mo’s amicus brief may be invalid given their timing. It’s also interesting to note that Sprint hasn’t done any filings in favor of Samsung but that might have something to do with a certain Apple smartphone rumored to launch on the carrier later this year.
