Re: What exactly was the point of this merger?

The point of this merger was to aquire a large number of wireless subscribers. The market is saturated at this point, Gross Adds have dropped off year over year for all the big Wireless companies. And since Verizon's Human Cloning project has yet to bear fruit, the only other option is other companie's customers.

This achieved through agressive marketing, mergers (like this one and several others), and highly trained Flying Monkey goon squads that peform random "shakedowns" of competitors customers.

PS VZW software, while not always aeshtically(sp?) pleasing, it IS NOT CRIPPLED. And yes, that statement includes Bluetooth Profiles. Almost every BT profile is supported, with the exception of like the Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwhich construction profile.
