I absolutely agree. Great catch BTW. The timing of both is the same.

Cingular bought ATT I dont think thay are coming out again. I guess you can say they are AT&T.

Cingular bought AT&T and kept the more popular name

Stephen Colbert did a brilliant bit about the Cingular/ATT merger. Essentially, 30 years ago AT&T was split into 7 different regional carriers, and by 2007 they were all merged into Verizon and at&t.

make it a GSM carrier thats compatable with ATT, Tmo, and international GSM signals so we can get those great unlocked phones from outside the US... and $30 a month unlimited plans! with real national coverage and LTE/HSPA+!!
ok.. i guess im dreaming.. lol

I hate that I cant get any US phone because of compatibility with 3G.......

If only. That way we can get the Galaxy S3 in EARLY 2012 as opposed to LATE 2012.

a GSM carrier with no BLOATWARE. or maybe minimal. FTW.

I wonder if it's going to be a smaller regional carrier?

I've always been curious what the rough startup costs would be to start brand new post-paid carrier...without just signing roaming agreements for your entire network. However, the more I think about it, the less likely it seems that you could ever finance that without agreements...so Nevermind, answered my own question

I hope it's nationwide! :D So sick of the current big (soon to be 3).

Tell me it uses AT&T's frequencies at half the price and I'm in.

This will make the ATT, Tmobile deal go through. Check it out one business goes out and another one comes in. That's competition.

I'm waiting for it to be an AT&T front company. Showing "competition" so the T-Mo merger goes through, lol

Ok, I got some information regarding this company, recently most of the cricket corp stores in the chicago land area are turned over to a company from the south, and its called PW. All the corp stores that are taken over by PW will be turned into PW Corp Stores start of Oct 2nd or 4th.
so just heads up
