    I like the Verizon girl on the last video.

    Poor T-mo Guy: You know I have other choice
    AT&T&T chick: Actually, you don’t.  It’s just us and our friend Verizon.  We’re 80% of the market
    Verizon chick: What???

    That was classic.

    • ColdFeet

      She’s just kinda like “What? Who cares??”. Haha

      But I’m really confused as to what “we’re 80% of the market” really means. They’re trying to make it sound like in 80% of markets, AT&T and Verizon are the ONLY choices. Is that really the truth?? Or are they really saying that 80% of wireless customers are with or will be with AT&T and Verizon? Because there’s a big difference and to me, they’re being a bit misleading.

      • Anonymous

        They have 80% of the wireless market consumers subscribing to their services (AT&T&T and VZW combined). They were making a statement that none of the other companies are near as big as them so you don’t really have any choices.

        • ColdFeet

          I understand what it means, but I was just pointing out that what they’re saying is really misleading. They can have 95% but most markets will have 2, 3, or 4 other carriers people can choose from. They’re just twisting crap around to make it look and sound like the only two companies will be AT&T and Verizon. Or hell, maybe they just don’t know any better and have fallen for the typical “my rates will go up” and “I won’t have ANY OTHER CHOICES” crap.

          Funny, AT&T and T-Mobile say that there are five other carriers in most major markets.  Not only do you not know which companies those are in each market, but there are five of them, and you don’t even know that!  So, tell me realistically, how are you supposed to learn about the other choices out there?  What happens when those regional companies are nowhere near the coverage area of your previous service, and you get locked to a contract?  Do you know what phones they have?  Where the closest local store is?  You can name the flagship phone you want to have for each major carrier if you follow cell phones, no problem.  Hell, I don’t even know what US Cellular has for their flagship android device, and they’re the #6 provider in the US, AND they’re in my area.  I haven’t seen a MetroPCS phone in years, and they’re #5 (I wouldn’t have known that if I hadn’t just wiki’d US Cellular)… and lord knows what their data speeds and coverage look like.  For a key service like phone coverage where having the right device that fits your needs everywhere you use it, one needs confidence in their carrier and device, and certainly, over 90% of people can’t be wrong for choosing the big four.

        • ColdFeet

          That’s an intersting statement… “90% of people can’t be wrong for choosing the big four”. That’s the bottom line… if everyone hates AT&T so much, the people will choose to leave them like they have been with T-Mobile the past couple of years. Especially now that the iPhone is on Verizon, people have choices. And since AT&T is “so horrible” at everything they do (other than make money), we’ll be seeing them fail soon, right? Or will people just stick with them because T-Mobile’s no longer around? I don’t see that as the reason they stay with AT&T since they’re not leaving for T-Mobile now. But, I could be wrong. There is a first time for everything, ya know. ;)

          And here in Las Cruces, NM, which I think is considered a smaller market, we have at least 5 nationwide options… Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and Cricket. I think I’ve seen Boost in the stores, too, and Walmart has their service but that doesn’t really count since it’s “powered by” T-Mobile.

          Yeah, people have choices and people will continue to have choices. They’ll just have one less to choose from if this deal goes through.

    Very biased in my opinion! In order for AT&T to raise prices, they must first break contracts. So we’re not trapped. Plus, i’m sure Sprint will be around!

      Yes, you are not trapped….but how many other carriers you can pick from are left?
      Think about that.

    • Afaucher2

      you will have to break your contract if you have a tmo 4g phone because it will not work on at&ts network. they use different bandwiths

    This merge needs to happen I’ve had T-Mobile and I switched to at&t and have never looked back the service is way better and Internet coverage I have 3G everywhere and so this merge would help tmo and AT&T at the same time for both companies

    • http://ashn.myopenid.com/ Ash

      Speak for yourself, I had ATT and moved to T-mo and never looked back, I get the same coverage as ATT if not better, and my monthly bill went from $70 to $40 and I get 50 mins more…

      And no it’s not a merger, it’s a takeover. so it would help ATT and T-mo will be gone.

      • Jmsmz136

        Well I could say the same I was paying $100 with tmo and unlimited everything I get the same unlimited with AT&T and paying $78 nd have way better coverage in my area

          What plans did you have from both companies? ATT cheaper than T-mo?

    I liked what I saw there. I don’t necessarily think that it is “bias” either. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and I am glad this group took the time to share theirs.

      It is true that everyone is entitled to their own opinion but, they still must have truth in them. You cannot make something up!

        I don’t know if you work for T-Mobile or not, but ask Retail/Customer Care representatives about how confident they are about maintaining their position? Take it a step further; ask engineers, analysts, traininers, etc. about how confident they are about maintaining their positions? That jobs one in particular may have some truth to it. As far as the others, I have no comment really.

        • ColdFeet

          Even if these jobs are lost, most of the one who got canned can easily go “across the street” to another call center or retail store. In my town of a little less than 100,000, there are easily 4 or 5 call centers that are always hiring. When I got fired from AOL, I immidiatley got hired at Sitel. When I got tired of Sitel, I went on over to T-Mobile. And when I got tired of working at the T-Mobile call center, I quit and vowed to NEVER work in a call center again. Haha. Call centers aren’t my thing… I hate being nice to people. Haha. But honestly, they’re jobs that can be easily replaced. Plus, the turnover rate at a call center is ridiculous, so it’s really going to affect a few career employees, anyway.

        Need more spectrum.
        No loss of jobs.

    T-Mobile is doing average– profits aren’t skyrocketing but it’s breaking even.  T-Mo is NOT losing money or is borderline profitable.  It’s owner is the Deutch Telekom, bacially, Germany’s Telco.  Louis doesn’t know what he is talking about…I wish the host would have someone who knows something on the show.

    This is not misleading. These are basic economic truths. AT&T and T-Mobile shareholders will make money off this deal in two basic ways.

    1) There will be fewer options to choose from which decreases supply and therefore increases the price. Shareholder profits will rise as a result.
    2) One company will maintain one network that was once two.  It will require fewer employees to maintain one large network than two separate medium-large networks.They will gain efficiency through economies of scale.

    Customers with T-Mobile will probably see significant price increase compared to what they are paying now. Customers of AT&T will see modest price increases, but they will see increases.

    As others have pointed out, some customers will benefit from better coverage. But will this better network offset the increase in price? For most wireless customers (people), I think not.

    Wireless spectrum is a scare national resource. Markets don’t work efficiently when there is so little competition.  Two large corporations should not have control of so much without strict regulation to ensure that the resource serves citizens.

    T-Mobile reps are already painfully aware of the campaign to get rid of them, it’s been going on since the announcement of the acquisition. The headcount of reps at the call-centers has been reduced to a ridiculous degree..
    The reps need to seriously consider taking the path that their T-mobile compatriots in the Hamblen Connecticut engineering dept accomplished and get unionized.. T-mobile and ATT will have a much more difficult time continuing this firing campaign if the reps are unionized.

The government has to stop all of these mergers and buyouts now and we need a new more strict monopoly law that prevents this $**& moving forward or we will never recover. It’s estimated that this could layoff 20,000 ppl great idea!! let’s have more ppl on unemployment looking for jobs that don’t exist!! Loving the videos. FACT IS FACT you can’t fight it you can just distort it and att and tmo have been distorting it this whole process!!! If you can’t compete, improve your business but don’t look to get bought out….
