Smart move on Verizon's part, but will Vodafone give in?

This is a very good move by Verizon to try to get 100 percent ownership of one of the best, most profitable, high flying wireless carriers in their hands and get rid of Vodafone, however, I don’t think Vodafone will be tempted that easily because of that same premise. On one hand, Vodafone will probably get $20+ billion for their stake in VZW, which they can help increase their properties worldwide or even go after another United States company or pay down some debt. They also won’t get any more income or say in Verizon wireless. On the other hand, if they continue to hold their stake, Vodafone will keep getting a big say and revenue in this great Verizon wireless company.

It is a tough decision.

What does everyone else think?

Should Vodafone dump Verizon wireless and take their $20+ billion and buy another United States company or invest in themselves (or paying down debts) or should they keep their 45% stake?
