Yes, saw that today.  I hear Sprint's stock took a beating though because the merger valued them at considerably less than where they were trading at.

Thanks, Fred Griffin. In our area I'm not sure how it will benefit either company's customers since service is spotty for both carriers....

I knew they were aligning in other ways. Sprint is a tenant in my commercial building so wondering what this will me in terms of the lease space. T Mobile is across the road.

What happened to Nextel? Neither Sprint, nextel, or T0Mobile worked very well in this area, but they have improved some as more cell towers were installed.

Yes, but they need to get past the Justice Dept first. If they merge, expect prices to go up - less competition.

I had not heard that... I'm happy so long as AT&T is not involved. What I'm happiest about was the senior discount plan that TMobile gives me with unlimited call, text, and data.

Interested in reading all the negative comments about T-Mobile... I've had them for years and it's the best reception and service I've ever had... and if you travel overseas no one is better.

I have used Sprint for years... had a good deal and grandfathered it.... though at home I rarely can get a good signal without roaming (no fee) or going thru the wifi system...  I'll be curious how the service will be... if I'll get a tower up close to home??  or is this a good reason to raise the rates??
