    ....and merge with THE WORST cellphone company on the friggin planet ..... Goddddddd D A M N I T !!!


    Had Sprint way back in the day and they were horrendously awful........ No lie, I spent more time redialing dropped calls than I ever did on the phone talking to people.......

    Then I had Verizon for years until I got fed up with their connnnstant gouging... Then I farted around with other carriers/plans briefly until I settled on T-Mobile ... No bullshit, no surprises,---- what they said they'd do, they did -- FINALLY :cheer:

    Now this . . . .I'm just gonna go back to having a land-line & using a payphone when I'm out... Fuckin' Aaaaa





    Sprint, T-Mobile Said Near Price, Termination Fee Accord

    Sprint Corp. (S) is nearing an agreement on the price, capital structure and termination fee of an acquisition for T-Mobile US Inc. (TMUS) that could value the wireless carrier at almost $40 a share, people with knowledge of the matter said.

    Sprint will offer about 50 percent stock and 50 percent cash for T-Mobile, leaving Bonn-based parent Deutsche Telekom AG with about a 15 percent stake in the combined company, according to the people, who asked not to be identified because the process is private. The agreement could be announced as soon as July, the people said. At just under $40 a share, T-Mobile’s equity value would be about $31 billion.

    A deal would bring together the third- and fourth-largest U.S. wireless carriers to create a more formidable competitor to leaders AT&T Inc. and Verizon Communications Inc. Billionaire Masayoshi Son, the founder of Japan-based SoftBank Corp. (9984), which owns 80 percent of Sprint, has been pitching the deal to skeptical regulators as beneficial to consumers in both wireless and Internet service.

    “In order to compete against the big two, AT&T and Verizon, scale is essential,” said Satoru Kikuchi, an analyst at SMBC Nikko Securities Inc. in Tokyo. “The mobile-phone industry is an industry that needs business investment, so the larger the better.”......
