    I am finding many articles like these ones;
    http://biz.yahoo.com/seekingalpha/06...8_id.html?.v=1
    http://www.fool.com/news/commentary/...ry06112012.htm

    Comcast wouldn't need to buy sprint because they are already business
    partners in a Joint Venture program as more information can be seen
    online here @ Sprints website:
    http://www2.sprint.com/mr/news_dtl.do?id=8961

    This leads me to believe that they will be purchasing T-Mobile
    as many though in 2004 this would occur, I am trying to obtain as much
    information as I can about the subject. Any news that you have would
    be wonderful to share with us. Online Hot Topics about Comcast Buying
    T-mobile to sell to sprint.


    Does anyone see any other updated news on this subject?

    Thanks.

    That would piss me off, big-time.

    From a customer-service perspective -- they screwed up the Nextel merger.
    Badly. I'm now with T-Mobile, and T-Mo's service was quite good... as good
    as Sprint pre-merger customer service, and I never had any major issues with
    Sprint customer service before the merger.

    Trying to pump up some stock, are ya?

    Your claim is entirely unsubstantiated. And from a technical
    standpoint, very cost-prohibitive.

    Sprint PCS could not possible manage a three technology company unless they
    plan to divest the parts in the future. Clearly sprint does not have the
    ability to "take them private" and then sell them off as a later public
    offering. In short, I believe it would be a disaster for T-Mobile if they did
    this.

    Let me be blunt here: As much money as Deutsche Telekom has pumped
    into T-Mobile USA over the past couple years, and as huge an investment
    as it's making over the next couple years, I'd be utterly shocked if they
    sold to anyone.

    I have connections within both of these companies. Let me assure you
    that there is no talk of Sprint and T-Mobile merging that is ACTUAL.
    What you will find in these articles is speculation nothing more. The
    2 companies as mention in this forum have completely non compatable
    networks, allowing that did not stop Sprint and Nextel from merging,
    but Nextels iDEN at least is original. I will offer though that Sprint
    would definitely benefit from gleaning the customer service expertise
    from T-mobile's higher ups in that part of their organization. The
    real question here would be besides a shearly monstrous amount of
    money, why would DT, want to sell T-Mobile? It has even been rebranding
    its overseas operations with the T-Mobile brand.

    Can you please elaborate on why you would say "Your claim is entirely
    unsubstantiated."

    I just found these documents online, I'm not saying it.
    I just read online at yahoo business that a shake up may occur.

    I am study the subject very, very close. Keeping an eye on things
    I found another news story that is new as well in USA Today.

    http://www.usatoday.com/money/indust...s_x.htm?csp=34

    Something is in the works, I know it.

    Thank you! That's what I've been saying

    If Gary Forsee hadn't been a complete flaming idiot, there *were*
    benefits to be found in the Nextel merge. I see no such benefits with
    T-Mo.

    Ok, I stand corrected, there is that.

    Yes. Plus, they have invested, and are investing, an assload of money
    in their US network.

    Not to mention, iDen has no direct upgrade path, and Nextel had been
    speculated to be migrating in the long term to CDMA anyway. Not that
    the Nextel/Sprint merger made any sense anyway, and we're now seeing the
    disastrous results of this.

    Sprint should be loathe to make the same mistake again.

    In theory yes. In reality? Sprint couldn't deliver good CS even by
    accident.

    You obviously don't follow usenet discussions well. The reasons are
    manifold and have already been addressed by myself and other people in
    this thread.

    Good luck trying to dump that stock.

    I don't consider the merger disastrous! Sprint is being very aggressive
    about quickly locating CDMA equipment on existing Nextel towers here in
    California especially in areas that have a high nimby count. Kudos to
    Sprint. They kick-ass!

    Methinks things have been improving in CS quite a bit, as I had to deal with
    them with a plan change (found out I was eligible for a 20% discount). For
    that discount, I had to get a new account number and a new billing cycle.
    Was a bit confused on the prorations on the old and new account, and they
    helped yours truly to understand them in very short order.

    I for one can't complain, especially with the new lower price on the plan.

    1200 Min. N&W starting @ 8:00PM.
    3 phones on the account.
    Vision picture pack on primary phone and on one secondary phone.
    $5 F&CA roaming option.
    Sprint to Home & M2M options included.
    Am still getting 5% credit off all line item charges.
    Old cost, including taxes, surcharges etc - $94/mo.
    New cost - $68

    That would make one person. And a not very informed one, at that.

    And in the meantime, they have failed to attract any net adds worth
    mentioning, are still losing Nextel customers, and have not fixed
    customer service. Yeah, real progress.

    The problem is that for every good experience, there are tons of bad
    ones. Take me for instance. Once again, Sprint screwed up my data
    provisioning and I first was charged overage for unlimited data use (I
    have the plan that allows tethering), and THEN was forced to deal with
    not having vision access at all.

    Two two weeks and 7 calls to fix.
