    Default SprinT Mobile deal...

    Anyone know if it's still in the works? A guy working in a T Mobile store (Glendale, AZ) told me their mgmt told them it fell through and wasn't happening. (Take with grain of salt)

    They're in the finalization process, but some billionaire from Mexico is trying to buy T-Mobile now also. I'll see if I can find the article if you're interested.

    I think I'd rather have Softbank buy T-Mobile than Carlos Slim. We don't need T-Mobile run by Tracfone.

    I'm not sure if it's happening. Haven't heard much yet.

    Can easily go either way. Had to pass both FCC, and DOJ.

    according to reports, that guy is not interested. Apparently one of his companies had a quarterly report and on the call he said he had no interest to change what he already has going on in the usa.

    as far as sprint / tmo are concerned. Its going to take some time. Lots of legal and federal hoops to jump through.

    It scares me that is being talked about. I think if I was Carlos Slim, though, I wouldn't make too large a bid. Instead, I'd wait for the DOJ and FCC to turn down the bid. While there is the small risk the deal would be approved, if the pundits are right, he'd pay much less for T-Mobile not having to bid against Softbank.

    I just fear what T-Mobile would become under Slim.

    Sprint / T-Mobile thing may still be in the works. They'll let us know if it happens.. If it does it will then go through a big approval process before it can happen.

    Recently, it appears that Carlos Slim is showing interest in T-Mobile, as well.

    Alot of rumors will circulate... I honestly wouldn't worry about any of them until it's officially announced.

    All rumours point to John legere taking over after any merger/sale. No need to worry. Also rumoured the Sprint name will all together be dropped as it has a bad rep.

    They should keep Sprint.
    T-Mobile = Post Paid
    Sprint = PrePaid / MVNO spin offs.

    Yeah but I wonder how much say Son will have. If Legere is left to his own devices, then they'll keep growing and be fine. If Son comes in and does things like forcing BRS gear on them or something like that for "economies of scale," it could mean trouble.
