I wonder how many of those customers are happy about the switch?

More like a fear of change. Same thing happens anytime there's an acquisition or merger. I remember AT&T Wireless customers switching in droves during the AT&T/Cingular tie-up in 2004...not so much on the Cingular side though.

I remember that too. I was an original Cingular customer,
left ATT in March of 2010. ATT is a horrible company!!!

Sprint has made some bad decisions, but once they finally start refarming the Nextel spectrum, and have LTE on both the 800 & 1900 bands, things should be a lot better for Sprint.

The word "horrible" has been at the top of my vocabulary recently.

Is focused on marketing it's so-so or bad service offerins more than trying to improve the services they offer.
I'd give T-mo a try, their merger with metro-pcs will be good for both companies' consumers I think

Got me a Galaxy S4 on Tmo on April 30th, this coming Monday I'm porting my phone number over to them.

If metro pcs' spectrum assets and equipment help T-mo to have a solid LTE coverage without increasing the monthly charges for their customers plus they offer good data allotments at a fair rate (cheap unlimited data is quite an impossible nowadays)... They'll become the dreamed company for anyone. Aggresive marketing would possition them really quick above sprint and skyrocketing towards ATT's or Verizon's level.

Tell me about your experience with T-Mo in a couple of months. I'll be pleased of reading your review Jason.

I always thought the name was changed from Cingular to S-H-IT&T after the SBC management got control of Cingular through purchasing Bell South and previously buying Ma Bell.

That's funny because its the same company. Cingular bought AT&T wireless. So you haven't had a change of company at all.

I agree.

People dont like change especially into a bad company. We shall see what happens. Typically Sprint doesnt execute really on anything to the teeth so let's see how much they will lose of the customer base and if they can grow when they announce earnings.

was going on, they wouldn't be able to use that phone on Sprints network and will need to buy a new phone if they stay. They weren't too happy about that.

Sprint would be offering them great deals for the change its common sense.

I am sure these customers are going to be happy with the switch, they are going to have new phones and great value plans.

Most of those US Cellular customers are stuck on old plans. They are most likely overpaying for service I have a few friends who use US Cellular with expensive family plans who havent switch to Sprint because Sprint didnt offer good service out there previously. Now that they will have US Cellular Spectrum out there they are looking forward to the switch.

Good for them save themselves money and get pretty awesome Android phones.
