    As a T-Mobile customer, I'm not sure how I feel about this.

    Not to sound like a jerk but I predicted this when t mobile sales went down low. Sorry for t mobile customers who dis like AT&T but hey you can get the iPhone now if it happens.

    Your safe unless you change your contract, their required by law to honor it. I have a great deal from At&t, but that's because I'm grandfathered in from when they bought Bellsouth.

    yeah I'm currently on tmo's em+ plan and under no contract and I wonder what will happen if the merger goes through before the end of the year when I can sign up on contract.

    If the Federal Trade Commission agrees to the merger, T-Mo customers will only get access to the iPhone AFTER a 12 month period.

    Despite how fast this world sometimes moves, some things still remain slow as all hell.

    Did T-mobile customers really not see some type of merger in their future? Really? The writing was always on the wall, it was just a matter of when, not really who.

    It isn't a matter of not seeing it coming, its more being disappointed in the end result.

    Well.....I have AT&T and I didn't see this one coming :D  I have a friend that works in a T-Mobile call center too. I wonder if she already knows about it. I'll have to ask her.

    To think....once my contract was up, I was going to consider switching to T-Mobile :D  Funny how things work out in the end.

    Maybe this means I'll get international roaming to work in the US now?

    Great. It's only a matter of time before we have just two cell phone companies to choose from. Hooray for monopolies.

    We use Credo. I highly recommend them for anyone looking to switch plans.

    Sprint is still #3 :p 

    With this merger:
    #1 - AT&T
    #2 - Verizon
    #3 - Sprint
    #4 - Cricket

    No more or less then before. Its just the American part of the business thats being sold, nothing to do with T-Mobile here.
