The Moffit update:
'Craig Moffett, analyst with Bernstein Research, cut his rating on Sprint Nextel to underperform from market perform, just one week after having upgraded his rating. Moffett said that with its own T-Mobile deal off the table, the company is left to go it alone. '

Wow.. I can smell that BS from here. Didn't they say the same when they bought the rest of Alltel divestitures around the country?
And I really believe that's what we're going to get. I can't use my new phone (a Samsung Captivate) until April 12 so I'm not sure yet. But:
1. They gave me a Samsung Captivate for free to replace an old Blackberry Tour (I could have also picked the Blackberry Torch, HTC Aria, BlackBerry Curve, Palm Pre Plus, or any Windows Phone 7).
2. I get to keep my Alltel plan.
3. They're going all-HSPA and massively expanding backhaul. People in areas already converted are reporting speeds approximately 4-5 times what Alltel's were.
4. They're planning to "jump on a moving train" so to speak and rapidly expand Alltel's coverage (which is already much better than Verizon's here)
How is any of that BS?
