Why TMobile, why?

This is horrible news. AT&T has poor pricing, horrible customer service, and a laughable selection of Android phones. I switched from AT&T, incurring a heavy ETF to get a better phone, with better customer service, and about half the phone bill, and now it seems like it will be all for naught.

I wonder how/how long AT&T will support TMobile 3G and 4G if this deal goes through.

Yeah, I would imagine the biggest drop in quality that T-Mobile customers are going to notice is with the support. Basically, the gist of it is that when an AT&T customer support rep tells you something is going to happen, you can, 9 times out of 10, count on the exact opposite happening of what they told you.
