    I agree! I've only been with TMo for a short while, but I've been loving everything about it! I've had great experiences with Customer Service and my HD2 pulls down an average of 4mbps.

    Why would Sprint even want T-Mobile? If this happens, I hope they dump CDMA for GSM...

    I believe that Sprint is having money problems. So how could they have the money to buy T-Mobile?

    That would be an ugly transition with two network types.

    According to an article i read, T-Mobile is worth more than Sprint... I have no idea what's going on with all of this buyout talk. lol

    Didn't Sprint learn their lesson with Nextel and it's iDEN network? lol

    So if Sprint buys T-Mobile, they'll have three networks...

    Only thing I can think that would benefit them is saying that you can just "bring your phone with you" -- if they're running virtually-parallel GSM and CDMA network coverage. Think about it.

    I heard somewhere that they were phasing out the iDEN network and replacing it with some sort of CDMA push to talk, so maybe it'd still be two?

    Yea, I heard that too... I just don't see Sprint buying T-Mobile and fully supporting both networks. Seems like a lot of work for a relatively small company...

    It's be cool if they could pull it off though.
