    Just curious - does this means that some Verizon customers are going to get
    a letter in the mail telling them that they are now AT&T subscribers with
    AT&T service plans, and they have to get new phones and they lose their
    unlimited Verizon In-Network calling? And presumably some AT&T subscribers
    will be transferred to Verizon? It's reassuring to know we have the FCC
    protecting our rights as consumers.

    Usually when something like this happens, it's a swap of wireless spectrum
    licenses and is normally done to benefit both companies and their customers.

    Thats how it worked in my area. The "B" side had various owners with
    Altel being the last before VZW swapped other areas with Altel for this
    one. Everyone got a letter stating that we would become VZW customers
    after a certain date. They then rebranded all of the stores etc. One
    thing is that VZW left all of the plans intact. Whatever you had with
    Altel you had the same with VZW. I don't miss Altel because they are
    really big on not spending money and were really dragging their feet on
    building out this area.
