    Hope this goes through. Didn't know Sprint may get involved. Hope not, they have sorry coverage.

    So this will only effect the 4g coverage and not phone signal in general correct? Would be nice if I could get more then 1 bar on a good day at my house..

    Doesn't that mean we'd get a radio update?

    I think this merger is going to be a bad thing for metropcs users.

    I hope not. Where I live I have better coverage with metro than I do with T-Mobile, Sprint or AT&T.

    Because t-mobile stinks for one, and two when a larger company ie T-mobile buys/merges with a smaller company ie Metro pcs, the smaller company dissolves over time. T-mobile is a contract provider, they have their own small "prepaid" that stinks, Metro Pcs is really the only one of its kind, its no contract but yet somewhat larger then other "prepaid" carriers. Its the only no contract carrier that has true 4g lte, T-mobile a contract carrier doesn't even have 4g lte yet. Prices are going to rise, the conversion of the networks is going to bottle neck the speeds. I don't see anything good in this merger for metro users.

    People are saying oh metro will have better phones. HAVE YOU PEOPLE LOOKED AT THE PREPAID PHONES THESE CONTRACT CARRIERS OFFER? they suck. Most of them are worst than what metro pcs carries. Hell we are getting the SGS3. I don't see that on any of the list of prepaid phones.

    I personally think its bad for Metro users. It's obvious Tmob bought Metro for LTE. Does anyone honestly think they care about loosing any of the 9mil metro users? No. With that said when Metro gets dropped in 2015 you will either make the move to Tmobile and choose one of their plans or not. Sure T mobile might offer new and better pre paid plans by then BUT they dont have to. Why would they? They have the upper hand. Basically pay what they want or dont, they wont care either way because they will have LTE.

    It sucks because Metro was in a league of its own with the hope of only getting bigger and better by itself with the upcoming release of the S3.

    Luckily, bring your own device plans are all over the place so finding 4G service for the cheap isn't a problem.

    havnt seen any other 4g plans for cheap on other carriers, they all want about $100 or more per line. Ill go with out a cellphone before i pay that much for one line.

    Me either but that's why Ill never choose a contract. Pre paid and BYOD is the only way to go for me.

    That it will. I figured that from the start when all the Metro press releases all said "We'll continue to operate UNTIL the merge is fully completed." Funny how MetroPCS NEVER talked about after.

    Yes. 9 million metro users, plus or minus, times $40 aveage per month is how much capital coming into T-Mobile? If it was my company I'd try to keep the new customers as happy as I could.

    we've already gone over this.

    metro isnt going anywhere and the phonearena article confirms it even more so.

    i also wouldnt be worried about the sprint offer being that metro has no intention of being swallowed up. they'll have to offer them a similar deal to tmobile's and if metro feels that sprint will botch things up like they did with nextel metro wont agree to a deal with sprint.

    we're gonna be fine.

    http://www.metropcs.com/metro/support/faqTemplatePage.jsp?whichFAQ=About T-Mobile Combo

    what do you take "upon completion of the combination" to mean?
