T-Mobile USA, the country’s fourth-largest cellphone carrier, has completed its acquisition of smaller rival MetroPCS.
MetroPCS Communications Inc., the country’s fifth-largest cellphone carrier, says its shareholders have approved the company’s takeover by No. 4 T-Mobile USA.
Some smaller carriers are introducing payment plans meant to bring down the up-front costs of high-end handsets like the iPhone. Cricket, for instance, is letting customers pay $105 to walk out the door with an iPhone 5.
