Kinda lame

Not really sure what to think about this. I guess one thing is I am surprised, since I always assumed it was going to be sprint and not AT&T to buy Tmobile. While this does look bad it might have one posotive effect, it could force AT&T to give up quite a bit of power like locking down phones or something to make this go through(of course if they give up nothing, then this is really bad).

It is amazing that even with all that has happened carries still insist on trying to cripple phones as a business model.
