    We know, the only "real" TMobile customer they have is you. Everyone else just pays them for cell service, you have a "real" connection with them, on a spiritual, emotional and dare I say sensual level. We know.

Face it if your area now has T-Mobile coverage equal to or better than at&t and Verizon why would you go with either carrier if T-Mobile is offering better plans at cheaper prices? when enough Verizon an at&t customers leave the will be forced to adapt
    Don’t believe that one bit of that. just more fake news. Sure you have some that have a deprioritzed MVNO like Mint Mobile that claim they are a T-Mobile customers when they are not. Then you got some one that has a old Non-Data $5 month account on T-Mobile on a obsolete phone that spends every post attacking T-Mobile. What $5 a month grandfather account just proves everyone that is claiming T-Mobile is raising prices are just lying by spreading FUD ( Fear Uncertainty and Doubt). That is why I think Verizon and AT&T are hiring people to attach T- Mobile customers with lies and FUD. The merger is approved and all the crying is just sour grapes from the people that were wrong about the merger all allow with the FUD. If you are. Really T-Mobile customer and against the merger then be a man and cancel your T-Mobile account.

    I hate AT&T to the bone. However I don’t disrespect their boards and conservatives on their board by telling them FUD and how much I hate AT&T because I respect their board conversations.

    TMobile claims mint mobile are TMobile customers....but you claim they aren't now? What about deprioritized plans such as metro or TMobile essentials? Are they not "real" TMobile customers also? Lol the only "real" customers are the ones that sign up for the most expensive plans huh? So TMobile only has around 35ish million "real" customers then? Wow, that's a far cry from the 80+ million they advertise. Do they know you made that rule?


    Yea yeah yeah, everyone's attacking TMobile. Good thing they have you here to protect their honor. How dare anyone suggest TMobile operates like any other publicly traded company. Those people should be flogged.

Now, you can make the claim they will be better suited to take on verizon and at&t in corporate accounts, and very well may engage them in a price war over those, how does that benefit the average consumer though.
    Silly that people don't see this.

    Correct.

    Can someone please explain what the frack Trump has to do with this. Anyone who's been around more than 6 months knows that there is no love loss between T-Mobile and Trump. J.L. and Trump even got into a twitter storm a while back in during which Trump trashed T-Mobile's service.

    I'm not a huge Trump guy myself, shocking I know ..but I agree, Trump really has nothing to do with this. What I think they were trying to say though was, they may vote no, just because, just to "stick it to" the other side. This is a real thing. I personally think it's pointless and stupid, and it is a thing both sides do. I don't think they vote no though, but, if they wanted to be a pain, they could and force a court case. I'm positive TMobile wants to do business in California.

    Everything as trump supports the merger as he had or still has T-Mobile. T-Mobile execs stayed at his dc hotel. Since trump put his approval on it California will stop at nothing to stop anything trump likes... yes trump trashed T-Mobile years ago got over it just like I trashed T-Mobile and got over it and went back to T-Mobile. Trump is president and his doj and fcc both approved it thus enough to have California kill the deal with a lawsuit and an expected appeal by California

    Interstate commerce is controlled at the Federal level... so little they can do. It's a done deal. Cali can block it, it still goes through. T-Mobile then simply sells both brands in California, and the lawsuit is still for nought.

    I'm sure TMobile would prefer not to do this. I would suspect they settle. If it goes to court I'd suspect tmobile would win anyways. TMobile says they want it to close April 1st, but I believe their new agreement with Sprint has a date on June 1st to expire, so they gave themselves a little wiggle room just in case.

    I found similar. T-Mobile does everything att does for me at a much better price so no way I'd leave T-Mobile at this point

And yet, as apples to apples as I could get their top service tiers, AT&T came out to be ten bucks more per month--and even then, AT&T's plan had a cap on hotspot data where my T-Mobile plan doesn't.

    So yeah, why would I go with AT&T if T-Mo serves me just as well, using a better plan at a cheaper price?

    I ended my test and gave the phone to my wife for her Cricket service.

    Depends on where you get your facts, and what audience your statements are directed at. Prior to the merger, SoftBank said they'd invest in Sprint. At the trial, SoftBank said they wouldn't.

    As a dumb analogy, if you bad mouth your spouse for years, and then they suddenly turn up dead, you'll sing a different tune about your opinion of them at your murder trial. SoftBank and Sprint had a far lower opinion of Sprint's prospects at the merger trial, when tales of a doomed Sprint were an important part of the merger narrative, than they did pre-merger or to their investors.

    It seems son and trump are buddies and since Donald trump appointed all officers who approved the Merger I am sure there was some Son trump deal made. Someone could research donations made by softbank Son to Trump

    Only half true as California can block it on a state level and stop T-Mobile from being in California but they want the California market then T-Mobile is forced to stop the deal

    Not necessarily. If a merged T-Mo/Sprint are barred from operating in California, New T-Mo can sue, and T-Mo will continue to appeal if they lose until some high-enough federal court overrules CA on a commerce clause basis (and they will! Next to the Constitution, the commerce clause is probably the Fed's most hallowed legal dogma! I'll just cost both sides more time and resources.

    I assume CA, like the states who settled prior to the trial, is simply looking to squeeze a few more job and price guarantees and/or concessions from T-Mo, and it's obviously in the interest of both to find some common ground.

    While I was, and am anti-merger, I'm also against a single state overruling the presumed will of the other 49. The anti-merger contingent will have had our due process, and should accept the loss and move on! Besides, we'll need to save our strength for the coming 2022 AT&Terizon merger..
