Way to go Sprint.

I got to hand it to Sprint-Nextel. There customer service may not be the shining example of customer service. But, they do drive home a point. They are afraid as are many other Cellular companies that AT$T may once again become the monopoly they once were in the "Pre-Breakup" years.

And rightfully so. Nothing good came from AT$T being the monster network they were. And everyone is trying to prevent history repeating it's self. I applaud Sprint, Verizon, MetroPCS, Cricket and all the other companies for trying to point out this glaring fact that everyone is apparently missing.

Verizon isn't bitching about the merger, the loudest cry is from Sprint, who dropped over $30 billion on the loser Nextel, now wants to dictate how others should spend their money.

I don't recall anybody crying when Sprint wasted their money on Nextel. Actually, I think everybody was too busy laughing at Sprint when they made that boneheaded move.

By the way....AT&T is NOT the old AT&T. The current AT&T is a combination of three companies (it is only AT&T by name) and only naive individuals should even bring this up.

These three companies that make up the new at&t... What are their histories? The companies that merged to form Verizon, where were they from?

And I wonder why Verizon doesn't complain about this? Could it be that there is no possible scenario where they don't win from this?

The new AT&T is really SBC (Southern Bell Corp.), which was part of the old AT&T monopoly. They changed their name after purchasing what was left of AT&T.

That statement wasn't naive at all

I find it ironic that Sprint has to show just how lackluster and lazy AT&T Corporate has become. They show only what they want you to believe. Customer service means nothing to them, as the recent polls year after year has shown. It's all about the money and it seems like they are dead-set on restoring Ma Bell.

Actually, it was Southwestern Bell. One of the 7 RBOCS created from Divestiture.
Southern Bell was one of the 22 Bell companies under the Bell Telephone umbrella prior to Divestiture.

...pointing out anything. One. They just benefited from merging with Alltel which should not have been allowed. It would be hypocritical for them to object to AT&T doing the exact same thing with T-Mobile. Two. Verizon is licking its chops knowing that if Justice and the FCC will allow this to go through then nothing is out of bounds.
