    Sounds like slamming to me. If a Qwest wireless customer
    wanted Sprint they buy it.

    That's not what the article says. Quest would offer wireless under
    their name using Sprint PCS service. They would possibly move their
    current CDMA customers off the Qwest network and to the SPCS Network for
    national coverage still under the QWEST name. SPCS is not buying any of
    the QWEST subscribers. Reading comprehension is important to get the
    real meaning in a news story.

    They have true 2way text messaging. Wonder what sprint would do with 2way
    phones?

    It's not up to the customers; it's up to the owners of Qwest and SPrint.

    Virgin Mobile uses Sprint's network and they have true SMS. Sprint is
    all ready for SMS, they just need to release some phones.

    I can read. I just said what would they do with 2way phones that sprint
    can't use. Virgin Mobile seems to have 2way phones that are compatible with
    sprint, so I guess it isn't a problem

    Before you post something, you ought to learn the meaning of the word!

    Slamming is not having one company buy another. That's called business
    sense. If you haven't noticed, a lot of companies buy each other.
    That's how they grow bigger. Slamming is changing your service without
    your authorization. Not changing your provider because they were
    bought out.

    Re: Spring PCS to buy all of Qwest Wireless' subscribers

    I'm an employee of Qwest and for me it means the same thing. I won't have
    any
    subscribers to serve any longer. As far as I'm concerned... Qwest subs that
    are on
    Sprint network ARE Sprint customers. It is simply a matter of who sends out
    bill.
    Speaking of "Reading comprehension" Qwest is not *****ed with a w not
    a u. And why do you capitalize the whole word?

    Shut the **** up! I know what the word Slamming means
    dumb ass. My employer does it all of the time.

    Well.... did the people who bought Qwest wireless service expect
    to be on a Sprint network? Maybe people got rid of Sprint because
    they didn't like Sprint's QOS. Or for any number of other
    reasons chose Qwest wireless. Well now they are going to be
    Sprint customers and I don't care who the **** bills them.
    It IS a form of slamming.

    So I guess old GTE wireless customers were slammed by Bell Atlantic and
    Vodaphone when it became Verizon Wireless. Or when Alltel buys out
    various smaller companies (like the old SOuthwestco Cellular One
    customers), or when Comcast wireless customers were bought out by AT&T
    wireless and Cingular. Right?

    I got it right the first time I wrote it. Not living in the Quest
    service area, the other QWEST comes quicker to mind.

    What I don't understand is what's going to happen to all of Qwest's cell
    sites and switches if they're going to use Sprint's network?

    Now you seem to understand.
    A large part of a customers' wireless experience
    is how well it works where they use their
    cell phones. And when you're moved onto
    another network you've been slammed.
