    I was a MetroPCS customer and you wouldn’t believe
    the mountain of grief they caused me. Story at
    http//SwensonStudio.com/metropcs.htm While I
    believe that this merger is good for the consumer
    in general, it’s bad for the metroPCS subscribers.
    I’m glad that I bailed. If it was bad to be a Metro
    customer before, it’s horrible now. Customer will
    be jumping ship by the boat load. Exactly, what
    T-mobile wants. After all they are buying the
    company for it band spectrum, not the customer
    base.
