Bad for Sprint...
But the price tag ain't too shabby...so who knows! Thoughts?
What happens if they do...??

Anyone know?.. what happened when at&t bought Cingular.
Two things happen.
1.) Some employees become VZW employees.
2.) Some employees lose their jobs.
As predicted Verizon buying Alltel!!!
If they do, they have to keep the Wizard
at&t + Cell One Dobson = VZW + Alltel
