I received a direct message from a T-Mobile salesperson, which I found interesting:
Good Morning Adam
As you may have heard in the news, the final steps of the Sprint/T-Mobile merger have been approved and set to move forward. Now what? Well, T-Mobile will be the brand name of course so the great news is we will be keeping our awesome Magenta color! We just added A LOT of spectrum. In about 3 months we will light on the entire Sprint Network w 5G. This will give us about 4 times the speed of both AT&T and Verizon. They will not have access to this technology for about a year and a half. This gives T-Mobile a decisive advantage moving forward. If you are a Sprint client, you will soon boarding T-Mobile…I can treat Sprint clients as new customers until the end of March. Then, you will be moved over with the merger process I would imagine.
As you can imagine, that’s brought up a lot of questions:
• Why has T-Mobile begun the “merger process” when the merger isn’t complete?
• What IS the merger process?
• When was T-Mobile told that they would control the Sprint spectrum by June?
• Is this nothing but salesperson BS?
We think it’s the last – just salesperson BS- but we don’t know for sure -yet. If you know, please contact us (comment below, call, text or email us)

Salesperson bluster. May have been copy approved by someone senior, because it’s well written.
Basically Sprint and T-Mobile have to treat customers as new customers, because it’s legally “business as usual” – Throughout this process, T-Mobile has walked right up to the line of acting as if the merger is a done deal.
Keep in mind salespeople (at both companies) right now can count converts from Sprint to T-Mobile (or vice-versa) as a new customer win. So they’re pushing hard to secure businesses that they would have to treat “off limits” after the merger.
