    T-Mobile USA Vodafone buyout

    You've found Movistar and O2 to be more reliable than Vodafone? When I was in Mexico my phone roamed on Movistar and it didn't have signal anywhere, but when I went to Europe Vodafone was always available for me to select. I know those are vastly different markets, but I was most certainly able to find Vodafone traveling Europe more than I was ever able to find Movistar in Mexico

    Vodafone just left the US market and has been refocusing its core operations. They will no be re-entering the US wireless market anytime soon.
    One thing that people seem to forget is that T-Mobile US makes up about 30% of DT's wireless subs worldwide, so selling it would have to be a very drastic move where they would reap a vast amount of reward.

    Telefonica is in absolutely no financial position to consider purchasing T-Mobile US at this point.

    Hopefully DT will realize that fact and quietly drop the notion of selling or at least adjust the price upwards accordingly.

    I think it looks like t-mobile will not be sold after all DT told the french company to buzzoff and they did. Maybe DT saw how much money vdaphone had made on verizon. Both companies invested 30 billion and one company made 130 billion on sale and other been milking t-mobile profits for years.

    Funny this subject coming up. I was just recently cleaning out some old stuff and came across my old Nokia N95 8GB phone that I brought with to the USA back in 2007.

    I would bet that Vodafone would not be even remotely interested in T-Mobile USA until at least all the network modernization is done.

    Once that's complete is about the time i'd suspect to have an offer put in if any. I personally wouldnt mind it as i think it would be an interesting twist for sure.

    T-Mobile USA Vodafone buyout

    Vodafone gave up on the Americas along time ago. I don't see them reinvesting in the Americas and starting with the U.S.

    They would hit Latin America first. Bigger growth market.

    They saw how much money Deutsche Telekom has threw at the U.S and Vodafone won't make the same mistake.

    Threw at the US or threw at T-Mobile? Vodafone probably made most of their profits from Verizon wireless, don't forget that.

    At t-mobile.



    Vodafone did make profit on Verizon. But day to day they had very little involvement. I don't see them wanting to be involved in day to day operations.
