T-Mobile: What now?

You may have heard by now that AT&T will soon own T-Mobile. What should you do?

It’s important to keep in mind that this deal will take up a year to complete. It also needs to be approved by regulators before the sale will be final. Until then, do not treat T-Mobile equivalent to AT&T when fighting the caps; they are a separate firm for the time being. Instead, efforts should be focused at ensuring that regulators take a close look at the proposed deal and getting the word out about the deal’s downsides.

However, if the deal does become final, for all intents and purposes, T-Mobile and AT&T will be the same, even with different names and management. Switch away from both of those carriers for your mobile phone needs to either Sprint, Verizon or a regional carrier–AT&T’s wireless division is what’s making most of its money right now, and a cut here will hurt more than canceling landline phone service/DSL/U-Verse. Of course, if you have AT&T phone service, you should immediately switch to another carrier with the best service and coverage in the areas you’ll be.

  1. 🙁 I am upset that T-Mobile is being bought buy ATT. I never liked ATT. That is why I wouldn’t buy the iPhone. I think Verizon is too expensive too. T-Mobile had great prices and great service. Why did someone have to come along and ruin it. 🙁
