Sprint + MetroPCS makes sense

Sprint buying Metro makes WAY more sense, to me, than does T-Mobile. Spring and Metro will have overlapping coverage, but the transition for customers won't be NEARLY as difficult, in my opinion since both are CDMA.

In fact as well as in opinion. Sprint could shut down MetroPCS's network overnight and MetroPCS's users would still have 3G service (which might actually be an upgrade in some markets for some phones). LTE would be slightly more difficult since Sprint would need to add an LTE carrier in the PCS non-G band (MetroPCS phones only support LTE in PCS A-F), but they were going to do that anyway at some point so it's not a big deal.

Sprint + MetroPCS makes absolutely no sense. Very little in common besides CDMA which is being slowly phased out by every single carrier in the world including Sprint and Verizon.

That said, T-Mobile owns EXACTLY the same PCS and AWS spectrum which perfectly complement with MPCS.
