Sprint lost its business "mojo"
People often forget that Sprint's acquisition of Nextel was supposed to make it a business powerhouse with recurring revenue through long-term contracts that others only dream of. Of course, it didn't turn out that way and, while they're still No 3 for now, Sprint's brand cachet continues to decline. 

As a T-Mobile customer, I'd glad this merger didn't go through. There were simply no pluses for T-Mobile consumers and only potential negatives.

...concentrating on customer service. Perhaps even *gasp* have a customer service email address.

A couple of points
1. Sprint's LTE Network covers about 24 million people more than T-Mobile.

2. Sprint isn't the only carrier to offer unlimited data. T-Mobile offers a truly unlimited plan as well.
