I was thinking about a move to T-Mobile from Verizon, but not at this deal is still on the table. I do not want Sprint.
T-Mobile also took over metro PCS so you could move your verizon (CDMA/4G) phone directly from what I understand.
I think this merger would be a horrible idea. Sprint is the worst. They lie and they bully their customers on social media. Check out this article all about it: http://mysprintexpierence.blogspot.com/2014/01/sprint-lies-and-bullies-customers.html
I hope they go out of business soon. This should not be allowed in America.
Don't listen to Taylor or Nick. A Sprint and T-Mobile merger would be the absolute best (realistic) thing that could happen to the wireless industry. We desperately need a 3rd party in the wireless war. Verizon and AT&T have treated customers FAR worse than Sprint or T-Mobile ever has with their bloated prices and monopolistic practices. SprinT-Mobile will NOT be the next Apple or Google, and there will be growing pains. That's just what happens when mergers occur, but, they show a lot of promise in stirring things up in the near future. I agree that T-Mobile has much better management and the things they've been offering customers are fantastic, but Sprint has the spectrum, and TONS of it. They also have the Unlimited offers which by far the best offer in the industry.
That framework is switching to 3G/4G as time goes by, kind of like how Japan's entire network is 3G/4G (UMTS/CDMA2000/LTE)
Matthew - I question if you know what you are talking about.
1. I am currently a Sprint customer. I can not even read my email without wireless in major cities. I constantly miss calls because my phone doesn't ring. Texts messages don't send 25% of the time. Calls drop multiple times every day. Sprint fully acknowledges the problem and blames it on "Network Vision Upgrades". The only problem is, they have been giving their customers this excuse for years. All the while, we are still forced to pay our bills. Has this happened on At&T or Verizon. NO.
2. To participate in monopolistic practices means that a company can do whatever it wants because it has no competitors. Verizon and AT&T compete with themselves and with all the other wireless companies. It is unfortunate that their prices are high but their prices are high because they provide the best service. You get what you pay for. If you do not like that then go to Sprint or Tmobile and pay less for worse service. Simple. No wireless company can do whatever they want because there are so many competitors for customers to run to if they are unsatisfied with their service. In fact, many, many unhappy Sprint customers are running to T-mobile since T-mobile will pay early termination fees.
3. Sprint has spectrum? What? WHERE IS THE SPECTRUM? If it has so much spectrum why can't they get their 4G working properly. (Currently in the middle of a major city which Sprint claims gets 4G. My 4 month old Galaxy 4 says it is on 1X. Not even 3G, 1X.)
4. Sprint is not unlimited. It is totally limited. Their data works practically no where. According to consumer reports, they are the worst in the industry. The absolute worst.
Sprint can't be trusted. They are currently forcing customers to pay their bills even though their service is horrendous and when customers complain Sprint just points to clause in their contract saying that they do not guarantee service.
Sprint = deceptive and dishonest. We would all be better off if it would just disappear.
You can be relax if you switch to t-mobile, remember there are no contracts, so it seems you have the contract mentality still courtesy of Verizon business practices, so at any point you can leave if the T-mobile-sprint merger ever happens. Even if that happens that could take several months to complete. So try something different and save some bucks until that happens.
