    Sprint sucks. I will cancel my T-Mobile account.
  8. Sprint don't own themselves so no one can buy them as a Japanese bank already bought them. Softbank owns Sprint and has for over a year now. So AT&T couldn't buy them anyways nor would the FCC or DoJ approve that so it wouldn't even matter.

    Verizon needs to start doing something because they are going to be the only carrier without any real merger. Sprint have clearwire aka clear and now TMobile. AT&T will now have DirecTV and Comcast and TWC merged. Verizon may be the biggest but can lose that quick with all these mergers going on.

    More like the other way around. They already spend enough buying congresspeople - they might as well make the wedding official.


    "If indeed a deal is announced, it is likely to face intense scrutiny from regulators as the merger would combine the country's third- and fourth-largest wireless operators, reducing the number of US wireless carriers from three."

    Should've been, "TO three," or alternately "from four". Someone couldn't make up their mind and got brainlock, LOL
