    WAT. WAT. WAT. WAT. WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT?!!!!

    Does that mean that AT&T will get a shit-ton of Androids? YESH! :3

    Finally, a reason to have AT&T. To think that T-Mobile hated AT&T too.

    You still need regulator approval before you can merge. I'm surprised that ATT wants to buy T-Mobile USA.

    If approved, ATT will become the largest GSM service provider.

    Of course they'll be approved... if not it's TEH SOCIALISMS! (ooooo scary!!)
    Look at the Comcast/NBC merger that got approved.

    Not really comparable, since Comcast and NBC weren't competitors (NBC's stake in Hulu aside).

    Probably. T-Mobile customers will probably be converted to AT&T's horrible cellular service.

    You guys have been extremely screwed over.

    Hopefully they'll take over the wireless towers as well so technically AT&T's coverage shouldn't suck as much as before.

    I left AT&T when they sold me a shitty phone that broke, replaced it with the same phone 3 times and refused to offer me any sort of customer service. Now I'm with Sprint, and the only thing I can say is "Have fun, T-Mobile customers. You now have the crappy AT&T service while I sit back and use my awesome Sprint service."

    Problem?

    Well, T-Mobile covers America really well. If AT&T gets that tower coverage (as well as that 4G coverage), AT&T will blow Sprint out of the water.

    Problem?

    No, cause I'm content with my service. And if people are content with theirs, then that's cool. I just hate everything AT&T did to me, so I'm a little butthurt, sure.

    I also have a lot of friends that are with T-Mobile and swear it's terrible.

    If you can't beat them, join them but in this case buy them. Now all we need is for verizon to buy sprint. And we're good to go.

    The only reason I'm using GSM is because of SIM card, which apparently in US there is a law preventing CDMA using R-UIM.
