Cellular South files a lawsuit to block AT&T, T-Mobile merger

T-Mobile was very happy to marry with AT&T because their services coverage areas are very small and customers are running away.

T-Mobile has had like 5 million contracts signed since the buyout was announced. I wouldn't call that "running away"

5 million contract 'renewals', since the merger was announced.

If T-Mobile and AT&T do merge, expect to see non contract carriers blow up:Cricket, Cellular South, Virgin Mobile, Boost, AT&T pay as you go (maybe), with ther $45-$60 unlimited plans and now that they're are getting high profile smartphones; let's hope that it doesn't come down to that. Anyone who can't see that AT&T is clearly in this for money is blind.

Laron, Interesting take on the situation.
I think that most people want a One Provider plan. All media, communications, and computing through one monthly bill, prepaid or postpaid.

yes but having multiple choices for that one provider is the key here

AT&T-Mobile was a bad idea when it was announced and it hasn't gotten any better with the passage of time.
Any time that competitors are removed from a market, the consumer suffers.
