    Sprint pulled out of the deal only because it would of had to pay a couple of billion dollars in fees if their bid was prevented by the FCC & DOJ. This is how shrewd Masayoshi Son deploys his assets. He does not pay his competition to compete with him. The gloves are off now and his Lieutenant, Machelo Claure, will have no difficulty taking on Legere of T Mobile in duel or joust.
