    Block takeover of T mobile

    Concentration of wireless news is not good. Shareholders will get nothing. Big shots and lawyers will get it all. You may even see dividend reduced. We need to create jobs not reduce them. Thumbs down on merger.

    • Watch out there jpaul, it's beginning to crumble on you:

      "8/26 NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- If Sprint gets the iPhone, it may be surprisingly good news for AT&T.

      Two of Sprint's (S, Fortune 500) prime arguments against AT&T's proposed merger with T-Mobile are that competition in the wireless market remains limited to the Big Two -- Verizon Wireless and AT&T -- and that Sprint is effectively locked out of getting the best handsets.

      But if the iPhone lands in Sprint's stores, Apple's (AAPL, Fortune 500) smartphone could undermine the No. 3 wireless company's anti-merger arguments."

      That assumes, of course, anyone is paying attention to Sprint.

    • Cry us a River. Oh, Booo Hooooo. The socialist is now all concerned. I was against it only because t URD will turn it into a POS. But............since your against it - I must have been wrong. Let the merger complete! Fire the Union Workers. Stop the dividends and send the jobs to the most competitive country in the Universe - CHINA!

      Cha Ching. I made money today, shorting this POS for fun and profit.

      Thumbs UP on the merger.

      Short this t URD.

      that is all.
