    Good news indeed.
    Now, we can hope the 521 gets an even larger audience.

    That, and at least it wasn't a botched transition.

    Not a botch transition by Sprint when they are rebuilding EVERY tower by replacing all legacy components with brand new equipment (including antennas and all the wiring and backbone).

    If you thought it was just adding equipment to their network, you need to actually do some more research on it (hint: there is a site which is following the deployment on every market in the US where Sprint offers service, and they have been very accurate about it..)

    And have in mind Metro is transitioning to GSM, which makes it easier for Microsoft to provide devices to them. Ironically, Microsoft and OEMs like Nokia refused to do business with MetroPCS more than a year ago because they were a prepaid CDMA carrier (and you know very well Microsoft has treated every CDMA carrier in the US who refuses to carry WP8 devices using the China Mobile based coding, and demand QUALCOMM coding).

    I meant that you had two incompatible networks, and cutting support of Nextel only meant a massive exodus of customers.

    TDMA and CDMA. Two incompatible networks. Brought under the same roof. Not viable.

    T mobile will have to eventually sell some excess spectrum on certain bands in certain markets, especially on those areas where MetroPCS has "home" service via the acquisition of what once was Pocket Wireless (who had too many authorized dealers in the Northeast with a limited network).
