A handful of Sprint's iPCS affiliates have filed a lawsuit against the company in an attempt to block its planned taker over of Virgin Mobile. The three affiliates involved — iPCS Wireless, Horizon Personal Communications, and Bright Personal Communications Services — allege that the acquisition violates the affiliates' Management Agreements with Sprint. These agreements prohibit Sprint from competing with the affiliates in their home service areas. The three affiliates want the acquisition blocked until it can be amended to comply with the competition agreements. iPCS took Sprint to court over its Nextel acquisition, and is still litigating against Sprint's relationship with Clearwire.

Excuse my French but these guys are pretty annoying.
Yeah... Seriously, if Sprint sneezes wrong they want to sue.
I have to agree. This is becoming overly redundant. I can understand some of the logistics here if I am understanding it correctly. If I am, IPCS is just plain crazy with suing their provider left and right. How long will it be before Sprint tells IPC...
I swear if I were Sprint I'd just buy this company and then have all the exec's 86'd from they're headquarters!!! Yeah that's what I'd do!
Dear Sprint,
Please buy these D-bags and line up all their execs in a row and slap them. Hard.
Thank you.
Is this really a suprise though. I mean really?

Who here actually thought IPCS was not going to jump all over this like a fat kid on a cup cake.
Im not crazy about Sprint, but I feel bad that they keep getting messed with by this network...
