    What will happen is that my price won't go up, but if I want whatever they end up offering two years from now as the dust settles, I'll have to give up what I have and get the newest/latest/greatest which will be a higher price.

    Undoubtedly. It's what they've done as they've tweaked the One plan and then moved to Magenta.

    Or, maybe not. No one knows for sure.

    He posted in the Sprint forum that he has one of the free unlimited plans and his is expiring on 7/31. So I understand that he'd be disappointed to see the merger go through because those plans aren't going to be around. But those type of plans had a limited life anyway. Sprint lost $2.2 billion last quarter. Offering service below its cost is not a long term business strategy.

    The fact is the merger will improve the quality of service that Sprint customers receive as well. He admitted that currently Sprint service "It's cheap and it sucks".

    That being said, just because one is against the merger, is no reason to attack customers of T-Mobile in forums such as this one.

    Just because one discovers and discusses facts that put T-Mobile in a less than stellar light, is no reason to attack customers of T-Mobile in forums such as this one.

    When will you stop claiming I said things I never said? When will you retract your unsupported and false claims that I am "bashing" T-Mobile?

    It's a whole state called West Virginia, but Verizon has decided it's not worth covering, so apparently it's not of much interest to most people....

    Thanks captain obvious.

    But it won't be cheap anymore. And Sprint could make their service not suck on their own. I really can't figure out how they are this bad at running at a network. It's bad when you just don't have data much of the time.

    That being said, just because one is against the merger, is no reason to attack customers of T-Mobile in forums such as this one.
    No one is attacking T-Mobile customers. The problem is that many T-Mobile trolls like yourself and shilohcane continually make ridiculous posts, start arguments, and get pissed off any time someone wants to actually have a discussion in a forum, i.e. do what they are meant for because they're pissed off that everyone else is not in lockstep to worship John Legere the almighty.

    Color me confused, then, because I just looked at Sprint's coverage map and WV for them looks a whole lot like WV for T-Mobile.

    Hey, look, T-Mo has a comparison map:

    https://www.t-mobile.com/coverage/lte-comparison-map

    If this is what they CLAIM to have for coverage, I can only imagine that between them they might be able to cover Morgantown...

    T-Mobile's map downloaded a bunch of bull**** from AT&T's map when they turned roaming on. They have deployed some native coverage though, and while a lot of it is crayoned in, they are definitely way ahead of Verizon, which just doesn't want to be in WV, and has minimal Sprint-style highway coverage. It's hard to tell what Verizon is doing for roaming though, as their maps are totally screwed up and USCC's map is so tiny I can't see anything.

    If you want to get T-Mobile to cover a certain area that they actually list as covered... call them up and complain about it. They might actually give you an answer.
    T-Mobile will have to fix some of its rural areas as Sprint's customers have been able to roam on VZW in rural areas to get 'some' service, while T-Mobile has, in many areas none.
    This is the area I mentioned;
    Real County Texas, not a single T-Mobile site or Roaming, but they have;


    T-Mobile Coverage Screenshot;


    Yet the most visited State Park in Texas and the towns/communities immediately North of it has no T-Mobile Coverage, the tower in Concan in Uvalde county has horrible coverage, the coverage map is really misleading

    So the excuse that putting sites in a State/National Park is difficult doesn’t hold water when you don’t even provide coverage outside of it

    Yes, I'm enjoying my Umidigi F1 Play with dual SIM capability

    I'm also enjoying the news about the merger

    I was hoping that AT&T’s FirstNet contract would help them get permits in these state parks, Especially out west in wildfire territory. Then the other carriers could co-locate on the same tower. I can only imagine how hard it is to get building permits and to lay fiber in national parks.

    In many cases the only "tower" allowed in a park is something like a fiberglass cactus. The "tower" in Yosemite was a pine telephone pole that was shared by Verizon and AT&T.

    So glad this deal is almost done. As soon as T-Mobile get the final merger done after the remaining State Lawsuit are settled. I bet that AT&T & Verizon have paid politicians to start these states lawsuits in a last ditch effort to try to stop the merger. As soon as the deal is finished it will be impossible for AT&T and Verizon to prevent T-Mobile from have the most robust nationwide 5GNR network due to their better spectrum. Also T-Mobile will have the spectrum with 5GNR to start a Wireless ISP to again damage AT&T in their Directv, ISP and U-verse business that will really damage AT&T’s stock price. T-Mobile has been getting the vast majority of new customers for at least a couple of years but T-Mobiles Robust 5G is going to make AT&T & Verizon hemorrhage customers.
