Well, if your answer is, "Buy T-Mobile" you're too late. AT&T beat you to it. They announced the acquisition today. I guess the cute commercials about AT&T's underachieving network will soon be history. It also could mark a beginning of the end of aggressive price competition in the wireless industry. The deal was a surprise to many, while the only rumors circulating were about a possible Sprint and T-Mobile merger. Looks like Sprint stands alone for now.
In the future, shopping for a cell phone and carrier will probably get easier, if not quite as economical.
