I think what I posted right here is correct since both metro & tmobile will be hosting it February 28, 2013

Default MetroPCS Board To Hold Tmobile Vote March 28th

While March 14th may be a big day for Android & Samsung owners around the world, it’s March 28th that will have the attention of proponents & detractors of the MetroPCS/T-Mobile merger. The deal continues to receive regulatory scrutiny as it goes through the FCC & DOJ review process, but will also require the approval of Metro shareholders.*The deal has received some negative feedback from some Metro shareholders, including hedge fund P. Schoenfeld & Metro biggest shareholder Paulson & Co. Both funds have signaled they would vote against the merger given the unfavorable terms.

For its part, the MetroPCS board has continued to support the pending merger but has promised to “carefully review & consider” the complaints of their shareholders. The company continues to express that the deal is in the best interest of shareholders & stated the deal was:

“The result of a thorough process that began over 2 years ago & included the board & a special committee of the board considering a # of potential transactions with different strategic partners.”

The vote will take place in Richardson, TX according to a SEC filing made earlier today.

Other than the LTE network so far none, maybe the S3 but that would be it. But there are some phones with VoLTE that arent gonna need the CDMA network.

Pfttt. I'm not impressed. $70 for unlimited everything and that's Limited to 12G. They are nuts.

I think the "big boys" are going to have to make a bigger price drop than that to lure people off of contract. They are still subsidizing phones on reup so if you don't drop the monthly a nice amount it makes Some sense to Stay on contract.

All TMo has done here is the same thing Verizon recently rolled out, super uber-nuclur tailoring of your plan costs to what your needs really are.

Yawn.

I'll stick with my upcoming share of the TMo teat for the same price as now. [1]

[1] Assuming it snows in hell and the merger makes it thru...

The unlimited plan isnt limited to 12GB
Quote:
That’s not all as T-Mobile is introducing a whole new rate plan with Unlimited Talk, Text and 500MB of web included automatically. But wait, you want more data? Well, T-Mobile can help with that. For each line, you can add 2GB of data for $10 per 2GB of data each month OR you can add the $20 unlimited data plan to each line. You got that right, that’s one rate plan for the entire company, no more choosing between Value and Classic plans, it’s one rate — all the time.

I tried it and the 100 minutes a month worked but honestly it was always bugging me everytime I would make a call. The extra 10 bucks was worth it to not worry about the minutes. The 5 gigs was why I jumped on but last month I topped out right at 5 gigs which is the most Ive ever used. So I'd just rather pay the $40 for ST.

But that $30 plan is great and is very popular. i don't see them getting rid of it. I see them bringing in more like it. maybe. Who knows.

for me i already have grooveip pro setup and it works wonderfully as a voip solution, only thing that would get ruined is MMS but 2 people only send me those and they have android devices, its just as easy to tap gmail instead of messaging

Question Help ?

So would i be getting the better deal b going with the tmobile s3 rather than metro. From my experience on esteem metro 4g never passed 8-10 mbs. I see however the tmobile version gets higher speeds. I was gonna go with the Tmobile s3 on the $30 plan as i rarely talk but i use data and the cap is 5GB's. i believe that metro's cap is 2gb however. so im stuck. I think the Tmobile s3 is the better deal however. Will the merger improve Metro's speed for their s3 or only the tmobile side. P.S i live in Newark, NJ so i get metro 4g from New York.

Throttles if you try to run your entire house off $45 service. lol.

I've ran up to 5GB with no issues unlike the people that "claim" to be randomlly cut off at 2gigs or before. The least amount I use is usually 2 gigs and average around 3 to 3.5. People get mad cause they are running their damn TV off the service and get caught and then wanna blame it on ST.

This person with tmobile ST went to 97.64GB without throttle. Claims he was testing the system with porn torrents, non-stop speed tests, etc.

I read somewhere where the date was pushed back so Metro could have it's Annual Report all ready to go to the Shareholders. Surely they want the chance to pull the control rods out on their Nuclur Voodoo Accounting Emulator and along with the Celestial Smoke and Mirrors Generator be able to WoW the shareholders into not hooking up with the opposition.


You know they'll be doing everything short of pumping happy gas in thru the HVAC of that meeting room...

Default Re: Tmobile-MetroPCS Merger Updates & Questions

I have a few questions about the merger hopefully some one can answer them.. As of now I have a LG esteem with the 30 dollar a month 4G plan, which i got grandfathered in.. Now I want to get the Samsung galaxy s3, but since the merger is about to pass, I don't know if I should get a GSIII for metropcs or tmobile?? I know T-Mobile is getting the LTE GSIII version in a few weeks so I'm still not sure which one to get.. I also want to keep my 30 dollar a month plan, but I heard that T-Mobile is now offering a plan that is 30 dollars a month unlimited talk text and 500mb of 4g web.. is this true about the plan?? Also when i run out of 4g data on tmobile what speeds do i get?? On metropcs when my 4g runs out i switch back to 3g and i still get unlimited web and the 3g speeds for metro in my area are about 700kb..

The $30 plan on T-Mobile is 100mins for talk, unlimited text, 5GB of 4G then throttled.

If you have the $30 grandfathered plan & your satisfied with it go ahead & get the MetroPCS S3. I just said wait for the LTE T-Mobile S3 cause he seemed kinda sure he wanted T-Mobile to me.

If you want to stay with Metro then just get their S3 now. If you want to go to T-Mobile then wait for the LTE equipped S3 of theirs to come out.

Ok so the tmobile 30 dollar plan is not unlimited calling... Another question is when you get throttled on tmobile what kind of speeds do you get?? And what would you guys do in my case?? I like the fact that I get 5gb with tmobile but the 100 minutes I don't know about that???

I'm going for tmobile their speeds are faster that metro in this merger there the only ones really benefiting as their just using metros spectrum to improve their service. I believe the only benefit to metro is they may get gsm phones eventually. I'm either getting the lte s3 or the note 2. I was gonna wait till sep or Christmas so the note 3 comes out and I'll get a good deal on the note 2 but I may just get an s3 if I can't wait. Their both good phones and it seems s3 has larger dev community.

I was thinking of selling my iPod touch 5th generation 64gb as that would give me about 350. I already have a iPad 4th generation so I'm really contemplating it .

After the merger they'll be running the same network so the same speeds different plans just like boost/virgin is to sprint just different plans. Their combining the spectrum. So any speeds tmobile gets metro'll get the same.

Oh i didn't know that. Anyway im probably gonna go for the note 2 so ill have to go with Tmobile anyway. unless metro has some plans. also to get that $30 4g plan would the note have to be unlocked or just the Tmobile branded one ?

I am no big phone yakker but 100 min isn't Jack.

That's just one notch up from no calling at all.

I am sick and tired of having to keep Any eye on Any limits I Just May bump up against.

Not gonna happen.

It doesn't make any sense to piddle around to save 100-125 a year on the plan and not be able to fully use that $500 phone. That's just crazy talk.

300 min is three times the amount being discussed.

Still, IMO, you're a rare 18 yr old if you don't burn thru 300 min given the chance...
