That, would either take someone at Sprint to say, or someone to hazard a test. I would not know myself.

Sprint as an independent entity is officially dead today. Sprint stock is no longer trading, all Sprint shareholders should receive TMUS shares in exchange. Sprint customers will have unlimited roaming access to the T-Mobile network for the time being while they begin transitioning people off the Sprint network.

For now T-Mobile will continue to honor their existing contracts. The real question is what happens when those contracts come up for renewal. It's also a bit of an open question about how they will handle transitioning customers of MVNOs from the Sprint to T-Mobile networks as they shut down the Sprint network since that would require backend changes on the MVNO side in addition to the Sprint/T-Mobile side.

Amazon money is good anytime. I do hope all the Sprint perks stick around. Also anyone else noticing your phones roaming a lot more since the T-Mobile roaming agreement went into effect like at the start of Quarantine stuff?

I'll be in a area I usually have ok Sprint coverage, but I guess because I'm closer to a T-Mobile tower, I'm on it instead.

Any chance we can still upgrade our SWAC plan or nah?

What do you mean about upgrade? Like go from The $30 to $40 SWAC plan?

That shouldn't have changed. You can still add the "Premium" addon from your account.

With this merger will t mobile start using sprint's network right away? I was on sprint for a long time but switched to t mobile back at the beginning of the year after getting tired of terrible customer service. Everything's been fine with it except that at work with t mobile I can't get a data connection inside no problem with the sprint network before. I had a galaxy s10 with sprint and have a galaxy s10 with t mobile not the same phone.
I'm off work for now until god knows when but it might be nice to use the phone indoors when I get back.

Good chance your phone Roams over to Sprint towers if the signal is better but you won't know for sure until you get to try it.

Yes, that's what I'm talking about. If I have two lines on there but want to upgrade for Amazon, is it even worth it?

Also, how I'm the world do I do it on the app if I can?

Surely our corporate overlords wouldn't provide poorer service at a higher price after eliminating the competition.

IIRC, part of the matter deal was no price hikes for 3 years. Im guessing SWAC or something like it hangs on at least (and likely not one second past) that long.
