Lets not forget if this doesn't go through their is a mandatory roaming agreement put in place between the two so you will get access to both anyways if the merger falls through.
Just because there is a roaming agreement in place, that doesn't mean you have unfettered access to the opposite network. In many places, AT&T does not allow roaming on T-Mobile, so instead your phone will not fall into roaming, but simply have no service if native service is not available. I'm sure the same is true of T-Mobile customers.
In Atlanta, AT&T users *cannot* roam on T-Mobile. This also seems to be the case in most places when I've tried to manually switch the network to see if roaming is available, including Chicago, Orlando, Miami, Minneapolis, and most of the small towns I've ever been in and tried to switch.
One of the options on my SIM allows me to manually choose networks, and I do try frequently when I travel.
