I was a MetroPCS customer and you wouldn't believe the mountain of grief they caused me. Story at http// While I believe that this merger is good for the consumer in general,

it's bad for the metroPCS subscribers. I'm glad that I bailed. If it was bad to be a Metro customer before, it's horrible now.

Customers will be jumping ship by the boat load. Exactly, what T-mobile wants! After all they are buying the company for it band spectrum, not the customer base. The best case would be to take their Metro phones, get

them unlocked and subscribe to goSmart Phone. I think that's the basic game plan. A plan that's $5 cheaper, without the narrow channels that Metro uses means a much faster 4g, and way better coverage and much

better customer support. Not too bad unless you have a phone that can't be unlocked or you can't unlock the one you have.

Then you'll have to queue up for your GSM/HSPA handsets and throw your old CDMA phones away. Remember the 'service and plan subject to change' fine print. Well, it's about to kick-in. If any of you think that T-mobile is going to slow it's race to compete with Verizon and AT&T, I have a bridge for sale. With their 40 mhz pipe, double that of Verizon and AT&T, they have much, much more data capacity, which is where the action is. So, They have Verizon and AT&T in their sights.

Do they have the capital and expertise to pull it off? I don't know, but it'll be fun to watch. That means the quickest possible phase out of Metro's CDMA net and the assimilation of it's towers, and more importantly band spectrum, into the T-mobile net is probably their highest priority. It would be mine.

The only question that remains is how many 100's of millions of dollars will the top executives at Metro get for selling their company, it's employees and their subscribers down the river. If you think Metro's customer service was bad before. You haven't seen nothing' yet.
