Today Sprint Nextel announced that it has completed its $821 million acquisition of former affiliate iPCS. iPCS is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sprint Nextel, and Sprint Nextel expects to be able to swiftly settle all pending litigation between the two entities. iPCS' customer base of 700,000 will be added to Sprint Nextel's, which now covers an additional 12.6 million people. iPCS customers should not experience any change in their service.

Now it is time to clean house!
This just in...

iPCS sues themselves for allowing the takeover. Why? They've sued everyone else, why not themselves?

6th sense?

Why do I get this eerie feeling that data and GPS retrieval will be a lot slower? Often times it seems the money is in place to do a merger/aquistion, but it is very hard to merge technology. T-Mobile still has issues with the Suncom handsets, rate plans, etc

So, is this the last independent affiliate?

I'm pretty sure Sprint brought them all into the fold, after the Nextel deal. Except iPCS of course. Certainly, I don't think there are any out there who are causing litigious grief. But, I'm wondering if they've now all been bought-out.
No it is not, there are still 2 affiliates that exist.

Class action lawsuit

3 ppl in this thread are suing on behalf of iPCS and iPCS is suing themselves. We are going to band together to sue Microsoft. It was popular in the 90's I'm bringing it back. Lets do this!! Evil or Very Mad
