The "Un-carrier" launches a new campaign to get iPhone users to switch from other networks. Can T-Mobile put up subscriber gains as a result?

"Un-carrier" T-Mobile is launching a new trade-in program for Apple's (AAPL 4.08%) iPhone. Prospective switchers can bring in previous-generation models to offset the upfront cost of a new iPhone 5 on T-Mobile, requiring $0 down. Sprint Nextel's (S) prepaid brand, Virgin Mobile, recently launched an aggressive switching campaign of its own, offering a $100 credit. However, AT&T (T -0.14%) and Verizon (VZ 0.80%) still have significant network advantages with LTE coverage, which is a key selling feature of the iPhone 5.

In the video below, Fool contributor Evan Niu, CFA, lays it all out for investors.
