    So I'm starting this thread since the merger is very close to being complete & more new info should be released in the coming months. This way we don't have to make a new thread for every update or question about the merger like we have been doing so far and so the info isn't scattered across the forum.

    Overview of initial announment of merger.

    If all goes according to Deutsche Telekom

    I'll start out with this info that was in a slideshow at a DT investor conference last month.

    I have real faith in this merger since they're predicting 80%-90% of their growth will be with the prepaid segment

    Also as you can see they expect the merger to close by April 24, 2013

    I'm excited for the merger since 2013 is their year of investing in their network with 2012- 4billion
    2013- 4.8billion
    2014-2015 6Billion (combined total for both years)

    After several months of trying out many GSM and MVNO's I can honestly say that Tmobile is where it's at. Even though their coverage area is smaller, it is by far way more effective. Combine that with their plan pricing and it's a win win. It's going to be interesting to see the final outcome of the merge. If Metro can keep it's customers then these 2 are going to stir the pot big time.

    They are running TMobile commercials here that say No Annual Contract and it's not clear to me from the commercial that they mean separate from their current contract plans.

    I heard AT&T ST is getting discontinued for areas with more than just AT&T, only GSM part left would be tmobile

    I reallly think they only stuck with AT&T because it was the only way you could of got 4G HSPA+ on iPhones but now tmobile is refarming with 1900PCS so now iPhones can get HSPA & they're getting like 4x the speed of AT&T HSPA on the iPhone

    I can confirm the top 2
    *Credit goes to RunWithWoods over in XDA & milan03 over in HF
    *LTE on T-Mobile in Kansas City isnt supposed to be released for atleast 2 weeks at the minimum so the towers probably arent even fully configured yet

    t-mobile got 4g but i suppose we would have to see how much data we really use monthly.

    cuz some people really take the terms Unlimited literally ;)

    Do you know if we would be able to keep our current plans if we get a T-Mobile phone?

    Honestly i think a lot of information will come out at metros 4Q 2012 quarterly earnings/conference @the end of this month . Normally they do it a week or so after the quarter ends, there has to be a reason why they're doing it 2 months after it ends.
