There is news today about a potential purchase/merge with Sprint. Thoughts on how this will impact software engineers currently at the company or the company in general? What will this merger do to my stocks or options?

- Finally, remember that most of the important spectrum is LTE. All they'd have to do in most cases is just add LTE bands to phones on both networks.
It'll be a challenge, but it's very doable. The brands would probably stay separate for a few years to come.
I honestly don't think it'll happen though.
- Good insights. Thank you. On an unrelated note, do you think American carriers may ever go LTE only and do VoLTE only like the reliance jio carrier in India? I know those guys had to do it due to spectrum stuff but does that give any advantages in terms of network maintenance, operations etc?
- T-Mobile / Eng CaesarKobaExample of spectrum supported by the Note 8. Most all of the phones for sale over the last 5 years support GSM/LTE bands. I would imagine Sprint phones could use the GSM bands for calling and messaging with a PRL push or a SIM change. It may be able to be done remotely and bam, all Sprint phones support T-Mobile network features.
