Verizon Wireless is the most profitable wireless company YOY and has the lowest churn of all companies. LTE is the future At&t was late but is on board Sprint is broke but trying and T-Mobile is a none factor. Look at the numbers which are published

What are the pros and cons to this? this is very poor news reporting. Is someone holding back the truth, or not digging hard enough.

It would make no sense for Vodafone to sell their share of VZW. All they have to do is sit back and cash a check that gets larger every year.
