Way to make my eyes bleed by typing the word "knowones" - did that seriously look correct to you? But that's ok thanks for not making me waste time trying to explain to you why this is bad for every consumer.

Superior coverage is good for EVERYBODY...do we really want to go back to the bad old days when you had hundreds of small, local carriers with microscopic coverage and you got hammered for hundreds of dollars in 'roaming charges' if you stepped one inch out of those areas?

No, but the solution is in the middle. Bunch of crap carriers would suck. But so would one huge carrier bending everyone over. Best is what we have now, 4 maybe even 3 more or less equal carriers keeping eachother in check. 1 or 2 all powerful carriers isnt good for anyone bu CEOs long term.

This buyout does not equal better coverage. This must be your first buyout.

How can it not equal better coverage? With both ATT & Tmo's networks combined there will be much greater density of cell towers, plus a whole heck of a lot more spectrum.

Let's just keep things the way they are now. Don't be a fearmongerer. No one is proposing rolling back to the old days.

You act as though you know wtf you are talking about. Isn't that cute? And learn to spell. Who says they weren't going to buy them. ATT just made an offer that no one else could have afforded. I guess it comes from years of price gauging.

To tell you the truth, if I was Sprint, I would be letting it happen. I would wager roughly half of Tmob's customers will be jumping ship. And when they see the prices at Verizon, they will be jumping to Sprint.
As a matter of fact I think those benefits will happen before the merger takes place. I expect to see Tmobs subs drop and Sprint to acquire more subs than expected in the next 2 quarters.

Based on your theories the next 18-24mo's are going to be very, very interesting.

Their was a lot of churn during the Cingular/ATTWS merger I remember.
