T-Mobile YouTube The proposed $26 billion merger between wireless carriers T-Mobile and Sprint - really, it's T-Mobile purchasing Sprint - seems more likely than not to go through, but it ain't a sure thing.

Look at the bright side. They can blog, or get a lucrative high paying job at a local bar or restaurant. Then live in luxury in an apartment.

The most valuable asset Sprint has is the bandwidth it owns the rights to. The employees, like the buildings in Leawood, are liabilities.
Just another sign CDMA is dead.

It all started going downhill for Sprint when they did the Nextel merger. Such a sad story for JOCO with so many developments based on that campus thriving. Now it feels like walking around a corporate compound in New Delhi.
