Softbank is the better deal.

Softbank is a better deal because:
Per percentage being bought Softbank equals out to a rough $285,714.29 per percentage while Dish equals to 255,000 per percentage.
Softbank has cell phone carrier experience plus might get some Japan phones to compete against other carriers (butterfly J comes to mind)
Dish in my experience has never been reliable, nor gave us a easy setup (if we wanted to rearrange the house) compare to Direct Tv or our local cable company
Plus this could help Sprint and Softbank both become small international carriers (here's to hoping international roaming will become cheaper)

Absolutely agree! Sprint needs to decline the Dish network deal soon, and get back to finishing the softbank deal.

But they are Sprint and if they did the right and easy choice they wouldn't be Sprint

LOL. Everyone makes mistakes, I mean to be honest one can not foresee failure with a certain venture until you actually get there. I am actually satisfied with the route Sprint is taking in terms of what they are trying to do right at this point in time.

I do hope they agree with the Softbank deal it makes sense!

Japanese phones are so awesome! I do hope they bring that technology over to the USA.

Oh I don't disagree, I just think they've typically made the wrong choices in the past and even though they appear to be on the right track now it would not shock me to see them find a way not to here.

And don't forget the only real retail experience Dish has is closing Blockbuster stores. Unfortunately for Dish, you can't hope to achieve success in wireless with newspaper and coupon clipper inserts as your main customer point of contact.

If Sprint goes to Dish, Dish will remove Sprint name within 6 months.

SoftBank will allow Sprint too keep its name.

Based on their past, is rebranding such a bad idea?

Maybe having a new brand will rejuvinate them, and eventuially the customers might forget about all the problems they caused themselves in the past.

With that said, share holders will end up with more shares of Dish than they would in New Sprint with the Softbank deal, I'm kinda pulling for Dish.

Full take over and rebrand, not Sprint with a rich uncle.
