    It could take up to a year for this to finalize.

    I just hope AT&T network improves and that's the bottom line. There will be less competition which is bad, until another company starts up.

    This is the point about the merger that bothers me, and I'm not even with AT&T. Competition is what keeps these mega-companies on their toes. Now, with this merger, AT&T will be the only major GSM carrier in the U.S.

    I'm surprised this made it past all those government agencies that pay attention to these kind of deals.




    And then there were three....

    I agree totally. That is scary, because if its only Verizon and At&t they can do whatever they want to us and have no worries if we will leave or stay. Or it could work out to our advantage. It just is scary in both ways, because big companies love to bully customers into making them do whatever.

    They announced the deal yesterday - as in the start of it, not the end. They have yet to begin the process of getting the Feds to approve. It will be a year or more before they can finalize.

    About all that's left for Sprint is to hook up with US Cellular.

    The Feds would never approve Sprint betting bought out by AT&T or Verizon.

    Is T-Mobile USA getting the iPhone?
    T-Mobile USA remains an independent company. The acquisition is expected to be completed in approximately 12 months. We do not offer the iPhone. We offer cutting edge devices like the Samsung Galaxy S 4G and coming soon our new Sidekick 4G.

    and as others said above. Its going to take a year before things are set and done and thats IF the FCC/FTC approves it. So don't be expecting a Tmobile phone this year. Plus doesn't AT&T's contract end in 2012? Even if they get it extended don't be expecting it on T mobile for reasons I'll explain bellow.

    Another thing could be how the Cingluar and ATT deal with though. Cingluar is now gone. For all we know AT&T could kill off the Tmobile brand or turn it in to something else (prepaid for example, like Boost and Vergin Mobile are to Sprint witch could be a good or bad)

    But I think people really need to lay back a little before jumping on the Tmoble bandwaggon.
