This would be a huge move for T-mobile USA, and the Wireless market in the US in general. While there is still no official word from either company, we have gotten wind of some interesting news. Supposedly T-mobile is working on a 8 week program to help convert Sprint Customer Care from the dark side, to T-mobile, where they will now be required to assist customers. Interestingly enough, on hofo, it was reported that before hanging up with T-mobile CC, the employee said “Thanks for contacting Sprint…er…T-mobile.” Of course this was most likely a coincidence, but possibly some signs of what is to come.
