That means MetroPCS consumers won’t have to rush out and get a new phone any time soon. And when customers do have to buy a new phone, they will be automatically moved over to T-Mobile’s network."

But honestly it doesn't matter. Got a long time till anything happens so A LOT could and will prolly change.
you have to click on the "list of frequently asked questions" link to get to the part i quoted.

yes, metro's network will be shut down, not their business. metro phones will run on tmobiles network and metro's CDMA will be turned off and refarmed to match tmobile bands. the brand will remain in tact under the tmobile unbrella.

here's another interesting article on the merger.

T-Mobile CEO: MetroPCS deal is no Sprint-Nextel repeat | Mobile - CNET News

tmobile has the S3 and will be getting the note 2. they dont have the HTC one x though.
how can you hold someone to a promise they never made to you? - common sense
