They can "kick off" as much 600Mhz service as they want but at the end the day it makes no difference whatsoever since there are no devices that can access it, and won't be at least not until around the end of this year, and even then it will only be available on a couple devices, if that.

And watch carriers obligate their customers again to switch out phones so they can access everything.
2G>3G WCDMA>HSPDA>4G>LTE. Hopefully all the North American carriers get on the same boat early with compatible frequency bands.

That is unlikely. What is more probably is that future handsets will have the radio frequencies T-Mobile plans to use and not the frequencies they plan to retire. T-Mobile should be cut a little slack because their original intention was to be bought out by a rival...not to actually build out a network.

It's up to the phone manufacturers to add that functionality. The upcoming iPhones and Notes are already anticipated to have access.
