T-Mobile Responds to Customer Concerns Regarding AT&T
T-Mobile has posted a FAQ page to its web site in order to help customers get the information they need regarding the proposed acquisition of T-Mobile by competitor AT&T. In particular, T-Mobile would like to reassure that its customers' devices won't be obsolesced if the acquisition closes. On its FAQ page, T-Mobile explains, "T-Mobile has no plans to alter our 3G / 4G network in any way that would make your device obsolete. The deal is expected to close in approximately 12 months. After that, decisions about the network will be AT&T’s to make. That said, the president and CEO of AT&T Mobility said 'there’s nothing for [customers] to worry about… [network changes affecting devices] will be done over time… Chances are you'll be on to your next device long before AT&T makes any changes to the network.' Now is a great time to get one of our latest smartphones."

How long before I have to choose a more expensive plan for the same level of service?
From the T-Mobile FAQ:
Will my rate plan change because of the acquisition?
We will honor all customer contracts entered into before the change of ownership.
It seems to me they're implying that after your contract ends, you will have to choose a current (and almost certainly pricier) plan and replace your SIM card.
