Or just let the government control everything.


Is everyone here to blind to see that government control over the last 50 years has completely destroyed our economy????

GO AT&T!

The government should definitely not control everything. That being said...take you're aluminum helmet and peddel your BS somewhere else.

This is exactly the type of situation where the government should step in, to protect the ppl from a corporation that is trying buy up consumer choices for no other reason than to line their pockets. And i'd just as soon have my tax money pay for this as anything.

The government doesn't need to "protect the people from a corporation" which doesn't make any sense anyways. If I don't like the deal then I won't go with AT&T and show my dissatisfaction with them by heading to another carrier. Wireless phone service is not a necessity as you would like people to believe, we aren't talking about water here.

I guess the 104,000 customers who left Sprint this past quarter supported them too.

It's amazzzing Sprint still has as many customers as it does considering they've been bleeding customers for 4-5yrs. Neither the original Evo, or the Evo 3D has helped Sprint all that much.

"The government doesn't need to "protect the people from a corporation" which doesn't make any sense anyways."

-What doesnt make sense about that? You're an idiot!

-Here's a couple examples off the top of my head: The FDA protecting us from companies putting whatever they want in our food. OR them breaking up Ma Bell the first f***in time! smh

And wireless service isnt a necessity today. But it will be tomorrow (as in the future, since you dont seem to grasp simple concepts). But screw it lets let at&t be the only company...then what? you just gonna choose not to have phone, internet, or tv? What happens when they are THE choice.

I agree, stop the whining. If consumers have a problem with at&t, they still have PLENTY of wireless carriers to go to and who do you think most tmo customers will switch to if they still want a mediocre carrier with lower monthly cost? Sprint!! Would everyone whine so much if sprint was buying tmo instead? I think not.

Not that i plan to convince someone with the username attrep. But there's a reason fewer ppl would care if Sprint bought tmobile, if you used any common sense. Having 3 carriers of relatively equal footing is nowhere near the same as having 2 giants price fixing the market & a 3rd being so far behind that catching up or effectively competing is near impossible.

Ha, if sprint purchased tmobile it wouldnt be equal footing, i think you use the term "relatively" too losely. With sprints possibility in getting the iphone, I highly doubt they will have any trouble staying competitive. They will essentially be take tmobiles place in the market by having the smaller customer base initially but i anticipate a rise in sprints number of customers if the merger goes through.

Exactly... When it comes to water. I don't get to choose where it comes from, who bills me, or how much I get charged every month. That is a monopoly.

As soon as the government doesn't control the spectrum I'll agree with you. Until then there can only be a finite number of carriers. As a result, fewer carriers means less competition and is a very bad thing.
