For some reason when Cingular bought At&t it was the other way around
they used the At&t name
they used the At&t philosophy of service
why would they trade the At&t name, one of the oldest in the USA for Tmobile a German company?
Don't see it, and I do not see At&t giving away service the way TMobile does.....................

You guys are happy about this!? Less competition? Higher prices? I don't see it, the only people happy about this news are the current AT&T costumers who like & enjoy paying a higher phone bill! You people complaining about your bill, month after month you keep paying it with no complaints!! Go down to AT&T and Verizon headquarters and start a riot! Burn down the building! Let them know your pissed!! These fat CEO pigs are FAT enough!! GRRRR!!!

At&t has 71 million plus
T-Mobile USA is the fourth-largest wireless carrier in the U.S. market with 33.73 million customers and annual revenues of US$21.35 billion in 2010.
So At&t will have 1/3 the country at over 100 million customers

Question for you educated folks,
At my house, AT&T gets around 4 bars and T-Mobile gets around 1. If this merge does happen, will I get better signal at home now? (I currently have T-Mobile)
03-20-2011, 05:38 PM #110
You should because your phone is pulling signal from Att towers and tmobile towers at that point

If this merger goes through. ATT will have a larger network with hopefully better coverage. But at the end of the crappy customer service is still crappy customer service. At least under the Cingular name that acted as if they cared about who paid their bills. For the last few years since the AT&T name rebranding. They've have gone further down the tubes.

I have been with tmobile since arial (99), I have been grandfathered in on every plan (arial,voicestream,tmobile), just as people were grandfathered from cingular to att. I am sure that you will be able to retain your unlimited plans (which i have for 69), they are not going to start pissing off millions of customers, if not, you are not required to stay with per law. then, if you like, switch. alot of spazzing out for no reason, this will be awesome!

U guys don't get it.
Just cuz ATT buys tmobile doesn't mean tmobile is dissolved into ATT.
It just means that their CEO has to report to a higher board or something like that.

AT&T first agenda is to acquire their $39 billion back! Then we'll be lucky to see competitive prices. Worst case senario is to give up mobile data all together. Wi-fi will just have to be enough. In meantime, I'll be mentallly preparing myself. I refuse to be bullied into paying redicilous fees for mobile data. This is exactly why I park my car and bus 90% of time. I vote with my wallet. While I may be just one person, I'm making a stand...

Tmobile customers will get grandfathered in bcuz if att starts messing around with the plans then tmobile customers will leave n not only will att lose money with the purchase it will possible see tmobile customers go to their carrier enemy verizon or other carriers

Doesn't help me much, T-Mobile is only 2G in my area and 3G sucks for At&T and always defaults to 2G all the time on my Iphone outside AND indoors.
I thought 3G was suppost to be a stronger penetrated signal?
T-At&T will be the new logo?
