I don't understand how the government is going to allow this buy out/ merger.

First, t mobile phones will be axes. Based on a complaint that some if the phones are not compatioble with ATT existing service. Claiming their just trying to do the best for customers. That will reduce production. Causing massive lay offs. Less phones to sell means you need less sales people. Laying off store reps & phone reps. In some cases manufacturering plants & stores could be shut down if they are the largest producers/ sellers of the discontinued models. Customers will be offered replacement phones @ discounted rates, but not free. Less phones manufactured and sold obviously means less to ship. There for hitting fed ex, UPS, not just drives, but shipping & receiving personal also. Eventually all t mobile phones will be axes. Shutting down manufacturing plants, stores and call centets. Probably with in a year, for the sake of the profite marine. ATT will claim it spent so much money on the buy out, upgrading t mobile systems , and special allowances forecasting t Mobile customers, that they can't keep the plants, stores & call centers open any more WITH OUT A RATE INCREASE. They will keep prices low for awhile attempting to lure new customers. Stunt & Verizon might loose a few. Verizon won't really be hurt. But could use it as an excuse to refuse employees. Sprint will be hurt. Causing , again, hundreds if not thousands of lay offs. Decreased sales equals decreases production. Also decreased delivery. 2 yrs from now you could see 10,000 , if not more, more people unemployed.

Imho, any way.
