    Your definition is correct. Because the companies are owned by a parent company that owns the network that they use, they are not actual MVNOs. However, in today's landscape, anything that is not...

    You may need another phone to get switched over. When they switch over your account, they need a clean MEID to put your account on. Since you current phone is on an account, the system will...

    Not really. A lot of people still associate prepaid with poor people or stores with horrible customer service in bad areas. With drastically lower speeds and a phone selection that features phones...

    As long as they keep their promise of being able to offer unlimited data at under $50 a month, I'm happy.

    Boost allowed some voice and a small bit of data roaming on Verizon. When I sold Boost, the most a person could get was 50 MB of data from roaming.

    T-Mobile has a lot of holes in their network that adding Sprint's network would fix in a hurry. T-Mobile's network would give better nationwide coverage than what Sprint can offer.

    As for the...

    The video mentioned unlimited for under $50 a month. If they deliver on that, it would be a game changer. I'm curious about the other services they feel they can offer as well.

    Not prepaid. Have to wait a year before they'll do that. Unless they changed policy on there. Metro does after 90 days and Cricket after 180 days.

    The existence of Google Fi proves that phones can use both networks right now, meaning customers won't have to wait long or suffer outages for the combined network to exist. While I don't think it...

    To me the biggest benefit is that Sprint customers will have a real nationwide network that won't be so dependent on roaming for those west of the Mississippi. Also, not having to wait a year to have...

    I've never heard of the "New MetroPCS" but wonder why would they keep PCS as part of the name since it's so dated. As far as the name Virgin goes, I don't see why T-Mobile will pay to use that name...

    Where their's overlap, the numbers and look of the location would probably be looked at. I know some Boost owners have tried to open as many stores as possible to strong arm Boost and to feel that...

    Sprint was going to get rid of CDMA anyway. All they have to do is sell phones that are Project Fi compatible since those phones work for both networks already.

    Whether or not this deal goes...

    The new board of directors would be a mix of the top people from Sprint and T-Mobile. That being said, some are saying that it's 50/50 at best that the deal gets approved. We'll have to wait and...

    They have a competitive offering as it is, but it's been a 2 horse race so far. AT&T and Verizon don't take prepaid nearly as seriously as Sprint and T-Mobile did. That maybe why some are afraid of...

    They'll probably call it Metro Mobile and drop Virgin. The only thing worth keeping about Virgin is their customer service. And they really need to drop PCS asap. Sounds like something from the...

    Prices will definitely have to be lowered. Metro offers 2 gigs of data for $30 a month and Boost offers 3 gigs for $35 a month. Both have taxes and fees included. If this combined company used...

    Part of me wonders if they will try to switch to AT&T or Verizon. I have the feeling that AT&T will have to change some of its prepaid policies (8 Mbps speed cap and little to no hotspot) with the...

    What's Next For Us?

    Now that Sprint will allow T-Mobile to take over, and assuming that the deal goes through, what do you think/want to happen to Project Fi? Since the new company would have the same network, minus...

    Sprint was going to phase out CDMA anyway, so that won't be a concern. If anything, it will speed up the process. CDMA is the new PCS in the phone industry. With a number of phones that Boost...

    They will more than likely merge, with Sprint's network and spectrum being used to fill in the gaps that T-Mobile has in a number of markets. A lot will depend on the strength of T-Mobile in rural...

    Neither Sprint or T-Mobile on there own would ever reach the customer count of AT&T or Verizon. Their only chance would be to merge.

    T-Mobile got so much from AT&T with the break up fee that it's no surprise that they wouldn't do a deal if it involved them paying a breakup fee. You can bet your bottom dollar that AT&T and Verizon...

    I haven't heard anything, but I would expect a number of stores to close in markets where there are too many stores within a mile or two of each other. Both Metro and Boost have had owners that...
