"breath in all that Wall Street greed Kids"

Really in the end all this guys care is all about their money nothing else. Which in turn will me we as the consumer will have to pay for it in the long run.

What would you care about as a shareholder?

Im not talking as a share holder I'm talking about is as a consumer. hence the part you omitted from my post.

And that part is typically irrelevant from owners' perspectives when considering M&A. This topic is about Sprint likely needing to improve its bid, not about satisfying consumers.

Look at the market sector we're discussing and let me know if you actually believe that. Even without that, shareholders aren't going to be concerned with satisfying consumers when dealing in M&A.

sure look at the market sector. You mean the same sector that is acting like a gossip column where if those nice stock sellers hear the customers are about to dump say tech and then alert their stock holders about the incoming storm and people sell like manics and say tech company is out of business. yup you are right customers don't dictate the stock market...right!!!!

I think you're giving average consumers a lot more clout than is due during M&A discussions.

You have to give the average consumer all the clout you can since we are the ones that drive or sink a stock one way or another.

But that's my point. We don't have that much power in markets like mobile services.

Even a little power can topple any stock as long as the consumer goes the other way

Keep dreaming. As a consumer, you will not affect a company's market cap.

That occurred because of management's continued failure to have vision and/or effectively execute on it. Failing to compete in a competitive market and losing customers is not the same as raising rates for customers in a relatively non-competitive environment. I'll grant you that if you can corral a meaningful number of consumers and convince them all to cancel service, the collective can affect the bottom line, but you as an individual consumer will not even be a blip on the company's screen.
