T-Mobile USA, the fourth-largest U.S. mobile-phone company, is prepared to look at more deals to catch up with rivals once it completes a merger with MetroPCS Communications Inc.

“Historically we've always been open and looked at those opportunities and will continue to do so,” Chief Technology Officer Neville Ray said Friday.

Even with the addition of MetroPCS, T-Mobile still trails Verizon Wireless, AT&T Inc. and Sprint Nextel Corp. in customer numbers. At the same time, the addition of wireless frequencies and the departure of millions of contract customers have left T- Mobile, a unit of Deutsche Telekom AG, with capacity for more voice and data traffic.
