T-Mobile USA isn't a publicly traded company. It's a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom.

Sprint IS a publicly traded company. At the close of the market yesterday, its stock price was $5. Acquisitions of publicly-traded companies are almost always based on their stock price and the calculated sum of all the shares x the share price (approximately). There's also debt to consider and market capitalization. Sprint has a huge amount of debt.
