"more successful regional carriers"? um, huh? more successful than who? ATT?

oh, you mean the more successful OF the regional carriers... yea, theyre breaking down USCellular's doors to sell them replicas to the phones they sell the big 4 almost a full 6 months late... Metro and Cricket are not regional at all they both operate semi MVNO as carriers offering nationwide service and, for the record, no innovation there, because innovation is not cheap, thus must be subsidized, which they do not do as prepaid carriers.

Its possible, even likely that TMO employees will lose their jobs, but looking at ATT as a lesser evil just doesnt make sense. Seeing as they are the picture next to MONOPOLY in the dictionary despite having already been broken up before, your rationale about big companies falling and being replaced really doesnt fit this mold at all. the cellular big 4 got big from mergers, not from hard work and growing the customer base.

And finally, why has no one pointed out how this gives ATT total control on the GSM device market in the US?? yea, yea, the regionals... we already covered this.. they get hand me downs because they dont do ATT sized business like ATT does, and with 30 mil subs, TMO was/is no slouch either. All the merger talk has done irreparable damage to the TMO brand, but I strongly disagree that ATT is the answer to this one.
