One of the staples of television lately has been those T-Mobile commercials with a girl in a dress representing the nation's fourth largest carrier while a couple of actors usually portray AT&T and/or Verizon. With the AT&T/T-Mobile deal being in the news again, the T-Mobile commercials are being parodied by Free Press in a series of 4 videos.We think you can figure out how Free Press stands on the merger by watching them.
Among the topics being made fun of are potential job layoffs following the deal, AT&T's formerly monopolistic ways, and the possibility of higher rates for customers of the merged company. So if you are a T-Mobile customer or an AT&T employee, or just need a good laugh, click on the videos below. Enjoy!
Why would T-mobile make fun of their business partner? If it doesn't make sense to kick a brother in the groin and f**k their dads behind each others backs. Why would business partners do that to one another. I mean, think abou it. Let me tell you why T-mobile is doing this. AT&T is the greatest producer of telephones in the world, far superior to Telemax and Western Union. They've invented the iPhone and did not invent the Android. Seems like an impressive successful franchise to me. T-mobile on the other hand, invented plastic bags. Now plastic bags are good, don't you think they aren't for a second, they've widely helped us dispose of garbage, transport groceries and make great toys for babies to sufficate with. Plastic bags have tripled the infant mortality rates of our nation, far more than the income AT&T's recieving annually. So for that reason alone, T-mobile is mocking and not to mention, t-bagging AT&T. Just wait two days until T-mobile and Android partner up and end up on the other side of the nutsack.
To all three of you - the word you want is 'drivel', not 'dribble'.
And can anyone (male) make any kind of comment without referring to their prized parts? And just in case you were wondering, comments without multiple asterisks are usually more on-topic, and no one else cares about your parts anyway.
Umm last i checked AT&T doesnt make phones they sell them. Companies like Motorola, LG, and Samsung make phones. AT&T just puts their logo on them and sells them. Oh and the iPhone was and is made by Apple not AT&T. So you might want to rethink your argument or Google some things to find out who makes phones these days. And the baby death thing is just messed up, kinda like all of your facts.

Actually, I haven't really seen any of those commercials since the possible merger was announced. I've only seen a couple from T-Mo vs Verizon (prices), Verizon vs At&t (4G), and iPhone (talk & surf) vs iPhone (3G coverage & dependability), At&t announcing their planed merger with T-Mo, and Sprint going at all companies about what "unlimited" really means.
Competition Breeds Creativity! What drive is there is if one or two markets are battling it out like unstoppable deities that no one has control over? One makes a phone the other makes it slightly better, taking tinier steps because they can. No great achievements were made without looking to something to surpass. Taking weight off the options leads to more careless and bad choices. Simply showing how rich and powerful AT&T would be and how Deutsch Telekom would get a nice sum of money (which probably won't make it past the top 5% of the company's lead staff) does not justify the merger in the slightest. You can't have a competitive market without competition! Therefore how does this benefit the choices and availability of networks and phones to the customers?

There is nothing preventing Sprint from making legal donations to Free Press...
