    If you read *my* negative replies, you would find out that I wasn't complaining
    about the message, but the fact that the messenger posts the same thing
    multiple times under different IDs.

    And I'm probably complaining about the messenger more loudly than anyone else.

    There's that doubtful agenda and sincerity again. Sprint=20
    PCS has net gained customers in each of the last three=20
    quarters, and I think even farther back than that.

    In addition, Sprint's 3Q2004 financial results:

    http://www.sprint.com/sprint/ir/fn/qe/3q04.pdf

    show a profit in their wireless business for the last=20
    quarter.

    There's certainly a lot needing to be fixed, but that=20
    doesn't make your characterization correct.

    Yes, over and over again, like a true troll.

    And by the way? The merger is nowhere near final. So, cool your jets.

    From a googlegroups account, no less, that homes in from a hotmail account.

    Ten bucks says this is the same troll as before, trying to bolster his
    credibility.

    Yeah but the real tragedy is that Verizon will replace the "Can You Hear Me
    Now" nerd with that suave Sprint Bus snake oil salesman.

    Hell, it isn't even officially made yet. It is just a rumored deal for
    about $35 billion. As far as I am concerned, it is a likely trap to
    pull in Verizon. So far, nothing has been officially announced about
    either a Verizon bid on Sprint or a Sprint bid on Nextel. The only
    thing that could be considered as fact at all is that Vodophone has
    authorized forward progress on looking at bidding for Sprint.

    So, with that in mind, I wouldn't worry about Nextel at all.

    How about addressing the subject instead of creating a personal attack?

    The key word there is "may".

    That's not a bad thing.

    At least the Sprint dude has more than six words in his vocabulary. Can you
    hear me now? Good!

    Which would suck, because in this part of the country, at least in my region of
    San Bernardino County, CA, they take forever to fix capacity and network
    problems, which is why I left Verizon in the first place. I don't WANT to be a
    Verizon customer.

    Exact opposite in the Northeast (not just part of a county). Sprint is a
    weak carrier with a poor infrastructure. A Sprint buyout would be a big
    boost for existing Sprint customers here.

    Here in Texas, Cingular service, rate plans, coverage, customer support
    and phones are all infinitely superior to what SprintPCS has.

    The subject is that a person with grudge and an agenda is spamming the
    wireless newsgroups with propaganda, and creating false identities to
    attempt to bolster his or her position with imaginary support.

    I think I am addressing the subject (that being: you) quite well.
