Sprint, Nextel shares up on merger rumors
Wall Street Journal reports growing speculation of a deal

Updated: 3:19 p.m. ET Dec. 9, 2004

WASHINGTON - Shares of Sprint Corp. and Nextel Communications Inc. rose Thursday after The Wall Street Journal reported rising Wall Street speculation that the two companies could merge.

While such a combination would offer some benefits, especially for Nextel, it would face several tough hurdles involving management and control between equally matched partners, analysts said.

“Such a deal would be much more strategically beneficial to Nextel than Sprint,” said Goldman Sachs analyst Jason Armstrong in a research note. “And, therefore, put Sprint i...

Ur last intelligent customer

I know we all get on and start bashing the stupid people we come in contact with. But today I had the sweetest, nicest, and the absolute smartest lady call. She knew everything about her phone, and get this she had actually read the coverage certificate Very Happy

Samsung I550 vs Treo650?

Going a little nuts waiting for this phone and am tempted to jump to the Treo650, but really don't like the fact that it's screen is wide open and not "flip".

Whatchya think? Anyone know where this phone is up to being released?

Prepaid Wireless Card Machines

Hi all. We are a wholesale distributor of prepaid phonecards. we also distribute pos machines for prepaid wireless cards (T-Mobile, Boost Mobile, AT&T, et cetera).

i'm looking for stores to place the machines. unlike others in the market, the machines are free.

i will happily pay a referral fee of $25-$50 (depending on first month's sale of cards) to anyone who helps me find clients. Once again, the machine is free and the percentages are reasonable. We provide good marketing material. lastly, the pins do not print on receipt paper like others, rather on thermal cards. impressive.

if there's someone who'd like to do this as a job, we're interested as well.

data access


can someone enlighten me as to how the phone company knows the difference if I'm browsing the net on the phone itself or browsing on a different device and using phone as a gateway???

It never ceases to amaze me....

The unfailingly stupid things customers say.A customer just called me,and when I told her that her area was'nt covered by our network,she said "There's a tower in my town,can't you just come down and turn it on?"

Vandals Glue Store Locks on 'Black Friday'

2 hours, 12 minutes ago Strange News - AP

LAFAYETTE, La. - The busiest shopping day of the year turned out to be a sticky affair. Vandals apparently glued the locks on dozens of Lafayette's biggest retailers, preventing managers from opening up promptly on lucrative "Black Friday." Hundreds of shoppers, some of whom arrived before dawn, were forced to wait outside Barnes & Noble, Old Navy and other stores while managers summoned locksmiths.

At least 200 locks on dozens of businesses were glued, including main entrances, rear doors and employee entrances, locksmith Garan Wilson said. Wilson's first job at about 5 a.m. Friday was to make his way to the front door lock at Old Navy — by...

opinions on the new mustang?

I like the body style on this new model much better than the last several years. I think it was a good call for FORD to go with that style from the past.
