Why would Google want a part of that?

I mean, Sprint is very obviously going under, why would Google want to spend their ridiculous amounts of money on that, when they could (and are planning to) just buy the whole freaking 700Mhz spectrum? I mean, they could do it a lot better, cheaper, etc without Sprint, and with that they wouldn't even have to pay Sprint any money.

And why would Best Buy be interested either? Did Best Buy recently mention changing from a retailer to a service provider? I'm so confused on where any of this makes sense to the people of Sprint.

What they need to do is build some more freaking towers, that way they can at least KEEP the customers they do have. God knows a few more years at the loses they have seen and they will have a lower customer base ...

you apparently like to shoot your mouth off. YES Best Buy IS looking for more ways to expand services. I'm not even going to go into anything else you said because you're just yelling "I know a lot I know a lot" but apparently you've done lots of research and know a lot about what big companies want. When is your next speaking engagement I would love to learn from your infinite wisdom.

Sprint’s issues are mainly with “phone selection”; in the past 2 years they have been going too Smartphone/PDA centric and that’s NOT where the money is .

Carriers with less solid data networks have been doing consistently better (VZW, ATT) than Sprint mainly because they do have better phone selections for the “masses” and also do advertise the heck out of it!

Sprint’s network is on par with the two big majors so it all comes down to securing those new phones that customers would want to buy; this could be easier said than done; money is (probably) running tight at Sprint and I can see the other two majors muscling their way in with the phone mfg’s… In this sense I see Sprint running i...

You my friend can take your T-mobile and your Edge data network and go back to Germany. Sprint may not be doing the best right now, but this article is proof that they are heading in the right direction and are doing the best they can to get back on track.

Oh and I forgot to mention the Auction is not over yet and you might be surprised that Google my not be the top bidder. So as a backup plan Google figures if they can't get their own, why not team up with a carrier and become a mega powerhouse that way.

Verizon & AT&T hope that the minimum reserve isn't met, so they hope the open access on the C Block is eliminated. I didn't realize that the C Block had open access to all devices. I knew the D block was for emergency services.

Man you only got one brain and the people trying to make things work here has more brains than what you got. Better shut up your mouth if you couldn't think of better things to say because you're not helping. If you think you have a much better idea then set up your own company and run it the way you want it and who knows maybe... just maybe you'll do better than these guys but for now you're just another loser out there begging for candies.
