---" The last time I heard about Sprint trying to by TMO, was two years ago, at least. ATT didn't make their move until earlier this year and announced a few months ago. I dont know all the details as to why Sprint couldn't buy TMO but, im sure it had little to do with ATT"---

It had nothing to do with ATT. That's the point. Deutche Telekom and Tmobile have been on again, off again in deciding whether to sell off. Nothing was serious nor amplified as solid. Only talk and rumors. No one took it seriously. Sprint "entertained" the thought and did correspond but only if DT would come to grips of the realization of sale.

Once the reality came, talks began. No one seemed interested and Sprint put in a legitimate bid of roughly 21 billion. Rather than bargaining for the buy, ATT just suddenly flashed an amount of money at Tmo that Sprint could not attain just to corden off a third power.
