If it does go through look for things to change after about 2 years. Which at that time T-Mobile will drop 2G and 3G. Also 4GLTE will be the base of the network and 5G will be sprouting out with the new spectrum acquired from Sprint.
If you are still using your S8 during that time you will not have 5G but 4GLTE should work on all network(with an update) as current radios in Samsung devices since the S7 support all spectrum bands, but it's gated through software.
So they won't be able to push out a update right when the merger happens to allow me to use the existing Sprint network? Also will T-mobile get access to Verizon as a roaming partner like Sprint had or will that agreement disappear?
im hoping after the merger T-Mobile make the Wifi Hotspot Data visible.... perhaps Sprint experts can show them how.
It's terrible that I don't know how much HOTSPOT i have used without having to call a Customer Service Rep.
Im so happy T-Mobile doesn't make cars.... I would have to contact T-Mobile to find out how much fuel i have in my gas tank .
Shame on T-Mobile (im still not migrating to the ONE Plan even without being able to see my Hotspot usage or Data Stash) i refuse to be assimilated!!!!
On the plus side, T-Mobile would finally have the high-band spectrum they need to deploy 5G in cities.
On the minus side the competitive pressure on price will be off, so T-Mobile will be free to increase rates to whatever VZW and AT&T are charging.
