    I have 2 lines that are still under contract, 2 out of contract. If I can reduce my plan to $160 + taxes, that will be great and I'm switching tomorrow.

    They are a major stockholder in Alibaba.com whose IPO is expected later on this year. They stand to make about $25B from that which should make their debt manageable.

    Better buy some then, since Otosan is going after it. Of course, it's probably already priced into its current price.

    Or they could be driving the price up so that Dish overpays for Clearwire. They get their money out of it, Dish assumes the debt.

    Yes, particularly on SMR. On some of Sprint's areas where the 1900Mhz network is kind of sparse, they might elect 70% better coverage. Of course when 800Mhz 1x is widely deployed, coverage concerns...

    I know for a fact that Sprint and T-Mobile have been talking for a little while. Sprint/Softbank are pushing hard for a merger.

    It is not a great quarter for T-Mobile, for sure! They should be doing much better once they get their network in order. And no, I don't mean their LTE network. I mean their coverage, whether native...

    When Verizon launched their LTE network they did the same thing. On the other hand, AT&T's LTE market launches are a lot more complete. It could be that AT&T is a lot less desperate for data relief...

    Again, the major complaint was about Wimax, which is provided by Clearwire.

    Clearwire and Sprint's networks are separate and Sprint's deploying LTE should not affect Clearwire's Wimax. I would call Sprint's tech support.

    Motorola sold their basestation/network business to NSN. Too tough to make money in that business. Ask Alcatel/Lucent.

    No, they don't come in 8GB.

    For those pining for VOLTE, which codec are you pining for? Hopefully not G.711 since that is 64Kbps vs 8K for EVRC. That's a lot more data per second for voice. Also given that VOLTE is not really...

    I prefer Skype since you can talk for free to other Skype customers, no matter where you or they are located.

    The merger will be beneficial for both companies. It will definitely bring more AWS/PCS spectrum + almost 9M prepaid customers. Metro is actually a well run company. Leap on the other hand...

    The only problems is that the Carlson family does not want to sell. They're still making money in their rural markets that are their bread and butter. They will face a conundrum of sorts when they...

    If I was T-Mobile, in addition to the MetroPCS merger, I would definitely pursue a lower 700Mhz strategy. Either acquire companies that have it or fund the development and then enjoy preferred rates....

    Yes, it would be great if they did something like that. But this whole thing, the merger between Metro and T-Mobile and the possible absorption of Leap by somebody points out that you cannot support...

    I think it will be a natural thing for Sprint to acquire USCC down the road then operate them as a wholly owned subsidiary. USCC has a lot of experience operating and making money in smaller/rural...

    Have you considered going with Straight Talk. $45/mo, much better network than either Sprint or Metro. You can bring your own device.

    Unless it says "EHRPD" instead of "EVDOA" you are not on a NV tower.

    The reason that Sprint and Softbank don't want to absorb Clearwire yet, has to do with spectrum. They want to be able to bid for PCS-H spectrum which is adjacent to their PCS-G spectrum. They don't...
