    When and if Cingular acquires AT&T Wireless, they will soon thereafter
    lose the right to use the AT&T name.

    AT&T wants to again have its own Wireless brand (so as to have a full
    suite of services to sell) (as does MCI).

    To that end like AT&T has reached a deal to sell Wireless services under
    its own brand name, but use the SprintPCS network, like Virgin Mobile
    does.

    (cut and paste the link if Outlook Express "breaks it")

    ============================

    Meanwhile that leaves MCI. Three possibilities:

    1. MCI will remain wioth no cellular business (unlikely)

    2. MCI will resell Sprint's network like AT&T is now signed on to do.

    3. Sprint will buy MCI, now valued at less than $5 Billion after
    emerging from bankruptcy. Although they may now have to compete with
    Telmex.

    Sure a sign of how Bushnomics has changed things if Mexican concerns are
    now getting ready to buy American Industries?

    Have you got your Bush $2 gasolene yet?

    I was going to post the same info, but put in a link EVERYONE can click on,
    instead of having to do a copy & paste. Why don't you use tinyurl.com
    Phillipe? For those that don't want to copy & paste, here's another link to

    Thank you for that.

    SprintPCS apparently makes good money from its deal with Virgin Wireless, and
    likely stands to be helped a lot by this 5 year deal with AT&T, which would
    then be hard for AT&T to discontinue, and Sprint PCS could be in the drivers
    seat in negotiating a renewal. The Network is built for Sprint's use, and
    incremental use is just wonderful for the bean counters. Hopefully not too many
    cases of the networks being overused (like happened in Chicago earlier on for
    Sprint PCS) will occur. Its very frustrating for users to not be able to place
    a call
    when they feel the need (i.e. a heavy rainfall at 5 PM).

    I wonder if Mobile to Mobile calls will be treated as such to AT&T v2?
    Are SprintPCS calls to Virgin Mobile calls treated as MtoM?

    Or are they going to get their own block of numbers or do they already have
    that now?

    You know, I wondered the same thing. According to my bill, Virgin Mobile
    calls don't count as mobile to mobile for Sprint customers.

    You have a problem with your newsreader rendering links. Why is the URL
    showing up twice in the same link? It makes the link useless.

    Outlook Express didn't break it. Your news client "MT-NewsWatcher/3.4 (PPC Mac OS X)"
    broke it by inserting a carriage return character after the "/20".

    I don't know about him, but a lot of us don't click on URLs that lead
    us down blind alleys. You have NO idea where a tinyurl link will take
    you, be it a porn site or whatnot. At least makeashorterlink.com gives
    you a preview of where you'll be going.

    However, had he put the long URL in angle-brackets <like this>, any
    non-braindead usenet reader would have made the whole thing clickable
    anyway. That'd be the simplest option for everyone.

    Outlook Express still fails on those.

    As I said, any NON-braindead newsreader. OE doesn't qualify, I'm
    afraid.

    Outhouse Distress is a bug-ridden piece of junk.

    He said "non-braindead."

    I have no problem clicking on long URLs, unless they are irretrievably broken
    by the originator.
