    “The Internet wasn’t meant to be metered in bits and bytes, so it’s insane that wireless companies are still making you buy it this way. The rate plan is dead — it’s a fossil from a time when wireless was metered by every call or text.” John Legere 1/5/2017

    Probably something new and fantastic that will, OBTW, undo anything of benefit to the customer from the previous Uncarrier moves. Just wait. Smoke, mirrors, flashing lights, worse for the customer in the end.

    But they haven't merge yet. Nothing is official -100% complete and done yet.

    My wild guess is that it will be integration related, like aligning the Sprint and T-Mobile plans in some fashion, and possibly aligning the taxes included for certain Sprint plans, and may also include some sort of carrier aggregation or reverse roaming on Sprint.

    At some point they should allow people with compatible phones to move over to T-Mobile. They could presumably take most modern devices on both operating systems and let people switch to T-mobile. That should free up spectrum (aover time, as people switch) that could be redeployed as T-Mobile.

    I think it’s too early for any Dish Network related announcements, so that’s probably more like 3.0...

    I mean, they are a business after all. Large businesses like T-Mobile will do anything they can to get that extra dime out of a customer. It’s sad but true. Has been for years and years and years.

    Maybe this?

    Looks like T-Mo is ready to sell their (LTE-based) $50 unlimited home internet service nationwide, after a limited test earlier this year. Uncarrier is typically about "pain points", and practically everyone hates their cable companies.

    I can see Legere pitching this as an uncarrier move, with the promise that the LTE service will become 5G ASAP after the merger closes. (Perhaps even with a discounted cable-style "double play" bundle when combined with T-Mo's TV service.)

    New T-Mobile Uncarrier 1.0 Scheduled November 7th

    I think it will be network sharing of Sprint resources with T-mobile.
    Like letting T-mobile customers use Sprint’s Band 41.
    “While we wait for the merger our friends over at Sprint are giving every T-mobile customer access to Sprint’s high-speed LTE. The other carriers hoard and keep their networks to themselves, but at the new T-mobile we know how to share blazing fast speeds with our Carrier friends and they in turn reciprocate.”

    Interesting, but that's too "technical" for an uncarrier announcement if they get into bands and stuff. We talk about bands here a lot, but most customers have no idea what that is. Pointing out Sprint has different/other bands that may or may not work with your phone just muddies the message, and might spark a "wait, we might need new phones after this merger?" conversation. If that's the announcement, it'll be phrased simply like "free unlimited roaming on each other's network..."

    And frankly, this doesn't really offer a tangible benefit to the customer, since in most areas the Venn diagram of overlapping T-Mo and Sprint coverage is a circle. These are the two worst national carriers for coverage, so getting the ability to use both is like saying "good news, to fix your house, we've hired not just one, but got you all Three Stooges!"


    If this is the uncarrier announcement, it'll be about a lot more than network integration/sharing. There'd have to be a immediate demonstrable benefit to really sell the benefits of the merger, like select T-Mo and Sprint plans getting both T-Mo's free Netflix *and* Sprint's free Hulu for the time being, or something goofy like that. Reciprocal roaming sounds good on paper, but would any of us even notice out in the wild?

    I agree that most Uncarrier moves have been items that could be implemented in the billing system (e.g. Binge On) or website (T-Mobile Tuesday). However, I really would notice Sprint roaming since T-Mobile has not been able to deploy any low-band around here and Sprint has.

    Yeah. I think people underestimate sprints coverage in suburban areas. They have good coverage that can be better than T-Mobile. I would love to hear that there will be an immediate coverage benefit.

    I suspect that on the 7th TMO will announce the date that the 600 mhz will go live on T-mobile and that the OnePlus 7Y Pro 5g will also go on sale the same day.

    They have been saying that 5g will go live by the end of the year so this falls in line with that.
