PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless A major deal just went down in the United States, which seriously shakes up the mobile industry on the other side of the pond: AT&T has announced it plans to buy T-Mobile USA from Deutsche Telekom.

Really.. they're just too god damn big in the first place, and acquisitions like this only make it like ten times worse. And they all get off by f***ing over their customers hardcore, every chance they get, with fine print, hidden costs, contract/"service plan" lock-in agreements with stiff penalties for cancellation, and over-priced services (texting, anyone?). And constant bombardment everywhere you go advertising their damn phones.

Choosing a provider is not a matter of choosing the lowest prices and best service, but getting f***ed over less. As if being subscription-based services doesn't already rake them in enough money to begin with. F*** 'em all.

Sorry, the more I see, hear and read about these companies, the more it drives me nuts. Just had to vent. I wouldn't mind having a cell phone (had one briefly once or twice over the last 6-7 years...), but their bullshit keeps me from doing any kind of business them.

Yippee, AT&T/T-Mobile just got bigger... as if they weren't already big enough.
