I hope the FCC and/or the Justice Department blocks this merger. With a Democrat in the White House, there is a greater chance DOJ might step in. I expect the Democrats in Congress will furiously oppose this merger, but their options are limited.
This needs to be blocked.

So the U.S only has three carriers now?
AT&T, Verizon and Sprint ya?or am I missing someone?
Less competition can mean higher prices so that sucks.
Can't believe we've 6 carriers on our small island

According to the AT&T website, the full effect will take place in 12 months. So I'm assuming that unlocking will be needed still for iDevices for a little while longer.

Unlock is still needed for a lot of people. Especially those of use that travel abroad. That was my main reason for unlocking. No roaming in other countries... I remember unlocking of phones (carrier unlock) back in 1999. Very popular in EU... And still will be... so I doubt unlock will not go away, in fact my 3gs was unlocked by t-mobile for 50 euro when i left DE...

I actually like t-mo... Only problem is the coverage in the USA is lacking. Always roaming on ATT net. But... wouldn't it be great if all T-Mo customers went to CDMA (spring or Verizon)? lol... Of course if most customers are like me. Once you go GSM you wont go back!

Well if rumors hold true... Apple could launch its wireless network... Just imagine the options. The idevices would be unleashed!!! And if the cost of MME vs enterprise based clients are used as a comparison then their wireless fees would be competitive.... ""We hope""

Do any of you think that, if indeed this does happen, AT&T will bring back the unlimited data plan?
God I hope so!

I have an unlocked iphone 3g using a tmobile sim card. I pay a monthly fee of 15$ to get unlimited texting and 10 cents per minute used on a phone call. Can at&t get rid of this or am i allowed to keep it if they make the change?
