    T-Mobile. And sell the Sprint name for what 25 million to 100 million dollars. Oh & keep Paul & change his yellow sweater for a TM mauve sweater.
    As a US citizen I have the right to criticize my government. My thanks for this is endless in magnitude. I fear fascism is here in the US. [fascism: government led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition & criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., & emphasizing an aggressive nationalism & often racism]

    Red Pocket (AT&T) $255yr UTnT 3GB
    AirVoice (AT&T) $20mo UTnT 50MB
    T-Mo Gold Rewards $10yr exp ext
    Tello (Sprint) $5 1+call/3mo=no exp x2

Would work. Instantly people would trust Fred. Hire old guys as c.s. agents, have them all say their name is Fred when they answer the phone. Who would argue with their Grandpa Fred? Nobody. Also the public tends to turn on giant corporations, T-Mobile liked to play the little guy thing all the time. They always threw it out there they were against the duopoly as they called them. When you are as big as them it's hard to play the small guy anymore. But not Fred's wireless, give the illusion it's just ran by good ole Grandpa Fred, he even answers the phone calls by himself. Just an old guy, trying to give wireless service to people.
    That's actually a great idea. It's kind of like Cl. Sanders from KFC. People trust this old guy because he's the face of the company. Meanwhile, at the farms, they're bashing chickens heads against the wall and using antibiotics/growth hormones and substandard quality ingredients. Yet, people still assume it's good because of Sanders. And it's fried "Kentucky style" even though they can't say that lol.

    What of the yellow and Magenta Colors?
    Should the new company just be called T-Mobile? Or Sprint?
    Or SprinT-Mobile?
    Or SoftBank D.T.? Or something like Nextel, Boost, Clear or MetroPCS?

    I like the SoftBank name. SoftBank Telekom?
    I'd simply call it an even bigger failure.

    That's funny. Lol took me a second to get it. Think of the possibilities, the head engineer is the buddy who owns a cell tower company, if someone calls into customer service with an issue instantly tell that customer they are lying and are being paid to call in and say they have an issue. Then when the customer says no im one of your customers look, tell the customer to just leave and go to another over priced network, then email that customer 100 press releases from your company saying how great it is. I'm starting to dig it 😃😃😃😃😁

    T-Shilohcane is another possibility.... I'm sure DT wouldn't mind naming its multi billion dollar company after it's number one fanboy.

    If a merger happens it will be called T-Mobile.

    However, if Sprint had a say, they'd probably choose something like RadioShack Mobile. LOL

    A good name for anything involving Sprint would be Broken Promises Mobile or Decade of Mistakes Mobile.

    It'll be interesting to see if any marketing remnants of Sprint are left in place.

    Soon there will be a tri-opoly!

    Yes, keep the T-Mobile name. It has a growing positive reputation in the US.

    Ditch the Sprint name as soon as possible, with its reputation for bad coverage and customer-repellent phone locking. In fact, T-Mobile should keep it secret that it has anything to do with Sprint!

    The Softbank name is a no-go. It denotes mushy finances.

    According to

    when you evenly mix magenta and yellow, you get this, which looks to be a sort of salmon, actually.

    Clearly Sprint brand name is not very valuable. http://www.ibtimes.com/sprint-corp-s...-value-1806720
