good summary pic. when will you start supporting the merger, and how much did you cost?
I would have a high sell out price myself, but i don't run a website or anything, so i won't get any offers.
how does one get hired as a corporate shill, i wonder?
have they ever approached this website with an offer? i'd be curious how much they have hinted at before being told to pack sand.
Dumb Even someone in kindergarten could figure out that taking away competition brings nobody closer to so-called universal or near universal broadband. Verizon will get there all by itself whether the merger occurs or not. Besides what difference does it make if T-Mobile plus AT&T equals 100 percent coverage or AT&T (after gobbling up T-Mobile) on its own equals 100 percent. 100 is 100 no matter how many companies are involved. There is absolutely no logic to AT&T's position and it gives me a headache thinking about the shills who support it.

What AT&T means is universal higher prices! Once the merger takes place what an excellent opportunity for AT&T to conspire with Verizon to raise prices. By the way why hasn't any government regulator asked why the contractual prices both carriers charge are basically the same.
payoffs take away our rights to at&t So att can payoff everyone in usa. Well bottom line is they sold off their rights to company that bite you later. HOPE ALL THE SELL OUT GROUPS ENJOY THE PRICE THEY HAVE TO PAY FOR SERVICE LATER. THANKS for how you treat your follow poor and middle class to not being able to pay att service later. Hope you calls drops like the do now forever guys.

Re: Dumb But we are dealing with pre-K minds in CONgress.
I really have been shocked at the dishonestly that AT&T has used . The Latino support media blitz was a real eye opener . The headlines that went to multiple sources never really said anything about supporting the merger . It had catch phrases like it " recognizes " the positive this or that . This merger would hurt Latinos maybe more than any other group . A GSM standard seems like it would benefit them more than any other group . I wonder what the fringe latino groups got just for letting their name be used ? The other blitz I noticed was how it is able to roll out the " most advanced mobile broadband experience" to this city or that city due to this merger . Thus the merger is good for you . I never really noticed the lengths a company would go though to deceive from the CEO down. Just really evil stuff . Everyone will pay more if this merger goes through indeed . Just really shocked at how this merger has grabbed my attention . It almost has a good vs evil feel.
Don't you people get it?? AT&T is right! If they control all the pipes they can spoon feed us via walled gardens/portals.
It will be a more open internet, because it'll be their version of it

said by Mr Matt:Because it's not.
contractual prices both carriers charge are basically the same.
The base plans might appear to be the same but when you factor in the differences between them (rollover for AT&T, friends and family for Verizon, mobile to mobile for each carrier) the actual per-minute cost you wind up paying will vary depending on your needs and usage.
Nor do they charge the same for data since the last time I checked Verizon still has unlimited plans for smartphones and AT&T doesn't.

You Know Why do members of minority groups allow for other groups, which may or may not hold their individual interests at heart, to speak for them? Why do these organizations get to be allowed to "state" with what "everyone" in that particular minority group is "supposed" to be thinking?

At the end of the day, GREEN is the only color that counts AT&T has the cash to buy comments from consumer groups, bloggers and so-called minority groups. When you think it is a black and white issue, simply follow the money trail and you will see it is really a GREEN issue. The question that AT&T asks is how much green can we get?

makes me sick It makes me sick to send AT&T my hard earned money every month. Their dishonesty is enough for me to switch carriers. When VZW deploys LTE in my market I'm gone.

Re: Wow, SOMEONE doesn't like AT&T I hope they don't take over because T-Mobile is the only phone service I can get here. On the other hand T-Mobile's data plans are insanely expensive costing $50 for just 1Gb a month so something needs to be done about that but AT&T is even worse.
IowaCowboyWant to go back to IowaPremiumReviews:
I dumped AT&T two weeks ago today Today is the 2 week anniversary of the delivery of my iPhone from Verizon. AT&Ts network has declined in quality and I have been noticing more and more failed call attempts on my 3GS. My mother was not too happy (she likes AT&T better than Verizon) about my decision to switch to Verizon and has agreed to have the remaining three lines of our AT&T switched into her name and I have my own Verizon account that I am going to pay for which has the home phone connect service, my 3GB/$35 MiFi and my iPhone with the 900 minute/250 text/unlimited data plan. AT&T has deferred a lot of maintenance on their network and the declining call quality is showing more and more. Verizon on the other hand has improved their network. I cancelled Verizon back in 2004 because of poor reception in our area and then Cingular had much better reception. Now Verizon is on a par with AT&Ts signal strength (and Verizon has reception in the few areas that AT&T lacks) but Verizon is superior in call quality and data speeds. I could not be any happier with my Verizon iPhone.
I am just wondering if they are buying T-Mobile as a band-aid solution to their broken network and they will just let it fall into further disrepair once the two networks are merged.
