Maybe I am just being notpicky but I fail to see the logic in some of your arguments.

1.) You claim that AT&T picking up the iPhone was not innovative. How is this any different than T-Mobile being the first carrier to launch Android? It was a huge risk and ultimately it paid off in the revenue department but destroyed the network so it could be said that it didn't pay off at all and was acutally detrimental. Also, please remember that Apple shopped carriers before signing a contract with AT&T and others passed on the opportunity.

2.) Please show me a link to proof that AT&T has plenty of spectrum left to use. I am not a network expert, nor do I claim to be, but I have never seen any reports on how much spectrum a carrier has and the capacity of said spectrum. Please link an articly for me so I can expand my understanding.

I completelty disagree with branding HSPA+ as 4G but AT&T was not the one who started this. T-Mobile started the trend and, through market research, AT&T decided that it would have to play along to not seem late to the game.

I am pro-merger because I think it will be ultimately good for consumers in the long run but I am willing to listen to all educated arguments.
