T-Mobile and Sprint announced their merger on Sunday, and on Monday a filing was made with the SEC which details the deal a bit more.

When T-Mobile then revised its offer, Sprint reportedly rejected it due to differences in what both believed the deal was worth, officially stating that neither could come to “mutually agreeable terms,”...
