Default So...AT&T is going to buy T-Mobile USA


DALLAS & BONN, Germany--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) and Deutsche Telekom AG (FWB: DTE) today announced that they have entered into a definitive agreement under which AT&T will acquire T-Mobile USA from Deutsche Telekom in a cash-and-stock transaction currently valued at approximately $39 billion. The agreement has been approved by the Boards of Directors of both companies.
Prepare to have crappy service.

As long as they don't rape my plan, I can live with it. Just means more people I can call on the same network.

This pretty much means bye bye to my G2. ATT is probably gonna raise the plan prices and get rid of unlimited data.

Goes to check out the Verizon android phones.

Man. I was on Cingular since it was SouthwesternBellWireless, and refused to deal with the snobs at AT&T. Then (sorta-kinda) I ended up on AT&T anyways, just dumped them for T-Mobile in November, and now I'm going to end up BACK on AT&T. I just can't freakin get away from them.

I got a G2 that says Verizon buys either Sprint or MetroPCS before the end of the year.

If it passes regulatory approval I'm jumping ship, the only option left for affordable plans with unlimited data is Sprint... I wish I'd waited to see the dual core phones so I could upgrade and jump ship at the same time.

Prepare for crappy phone AND customer service.

I mostly use wifi when I'm using my data. This does **** suck. If it's true, I'm jumping to Verizon when my contract's up next year.

Awesome! T-Mobile service BLOWS if you're not near a major city... this is very beneficial for me.
