A carrier bundle found inside the iPhone’s 1.1.3 software package suggests that TIM (Telecom Italia Mobile) will be the device’s exclusive carrier in Italy. Macity reports (translated link) that bundles for AT&T in the U.S., Orange in France, O2 in the UK, and T-Mobile in Germany are all present in the software package, alongside a file named “TIM_Italy.bundle,” the only bundle associated with a yet-unannounced network partner. Previously, a file named “TIM_Italy.plist” appeared in iPhone firmware version 1.1.2, offering further evidence that Apple intends for the telecom to be the handset’s carrier in Italy. According to the report, sources which Macity considers reliable had previously said that TIM has already completed negotiations with Apple to carry the iPhone, and that company is working towards a pre-summer launch of the device.
