Can I now buy T-Mobile phone?

Now that AT&T has bought T-Mobile, can I now purchase a T-Mobile phone even though I'm an AT&T customer?

You are free to buy whatever phone you want but the merger between at&t and T-mobile will not be final til next year.

Sure, but you will not get 3G/4G access on ATT with a T-Mobile-branded handset.

It will be just like buying a T-Mobile phone last year, since AT&T and T-Mobile are still separate competing companies.  You would have to pay full price for the T-Mobile phone (or get it from E-Bay, et al.) and get an unlock code to use it on the AT&T network.   As another poster stated, most T-Mobile phones will not work on AT&T's 3G/4G network, but will work on Edge/2G.
