if there will be 3 players instead of 4, your prices will go up. also tmobiles tech is better but who has all the purchasing at sprint in their pocket? yeah, sprint vendors will make sure via their sprint buddies that tmobiles tech will be replaced with their tech and you can say goodbye to the tmobiles speed and quality

If Sprint acquired T-Mobile then I suppose I would be able to use GSM phones with Virgin. If not then I just keep paying $30/month until I decide to stop. It's nice to not have a 2 year contract either.
no, they would do whats best for sprint and not the customers. i lived through a corp takeover and the company on top fired everyone at the old company, took all the patents and moved all the projects to their development. so no you will not get tmobile perks, sprint will take out a competition to solidify its position

the only good thing on EU commission is that they pretend they like customers, so the only reason the telco sector is regulated in EU as it is is their pretention. if you like to shoot yourself into leg and want a monopoly, well then i have no idea what to say
