When AT&T Old merged with Cingular customers from both companies suffered through about a year of crappy service with many dropped calls and coverage issues. I wonder if AT&T new and T-Mobile customers will have to suffer the same fate? How soon will the Bull Shit start with the excuses that prices will have to go up so the wireless weasels can upgrade the networks. Don't believe anything said, that indicates that prices will go down. Now that the T-Mobile fly buzzing around AT&T management has been swatted, I am sure that there will be back room deals between AT&T and Verizon to raise prices and reduce and then sell back features to their customers. Think charging customers for tethering smart phones to use the data plan they are already paying for.
