And now Dish & Sprint are in a bidding war, resulting in a spiked all-time high of $33 today (where I sold half my shares because it appears extremely overbought here, but who knows).

I like the bidding war wrt to the stock, but in reality I don't want Dish and especially not Sprint to be allowed to buy TMob from DT, as they'd just ruin the best thing to happen to carrier competition in a while. Though, some say John Legere's job all along was to just make T-Mobile temporarily look good enough to be bought, where it'll then be slapped down to mediocrity again.
I personally wish I would've bought some tmo stock back when it was low $20s. I think they are going to be steadily growing from this point forward, no matter what happens. John Legere is a brilliant man, and will do/is doing great things. If they do merge with Sprint, and the cards are played right, they should be an equal competitor with the big 2. It's hard to say if it will be allowed to go through or not. I would say that there is a much greater chance than there was with the AT&T merger. AT&T and Verizon are currently the main wireless providers in the US. If AT&T would've been allowed to buy T-Mobile, there would have been a Monopoly, no doubt about it. Verizon would have no longer had a chance against them. Sprint is a whole different story. We could potentially see 3 equal wireless carriers, instead of 2 big and 2 small. But nobody really knows at this point.

Sprint is motherf’er, period.
I’d see everybody in United States died than that.

Why is tmobile so important, customers? ? I bet that what they want. Just one thing if one of those money makers buy tmo all would go to some where else

Wish it was true, but stuff like this is decided by shareholders/owners, not CEO. Sprint messed up every merger/takeover they done in last few yrs, if anything T-mo should be buying Sprint. Two things make me hope for good outcome: Sprint offer is way lower than ATT was, hopefully too low especially now with T-mo on rebound and buying Verizon frequencies would be redundant if they merged?
