I've never read anything about a dollar amount being offered by Sprint but, I doubt it was just ATT's ability to out bid them that caused those talks to ever come to fruition. It may have been more of a time frame they had to come up with a viable plan to incorporate a GSM network into their own, plus come up with the money. Sprint may have offered an agreeable amount but, they may not have had the capitol off the back. Then again, maybe Sprint backed out of the deal, realizing that it would have been a huge risk for them, if they could not incorporate TMO's network with their own. Look how long a d difficult it was for them, when they bought Nextel. I just don't think Sprint has the financial ability to purchase TMO and meld the network and customers into their own, without serious issues. I'm not talking about hiccups here and there, more like make or break issues, do or die. I could be wrong, this is just my opinion, based on what I've read about Sprint.
