    I think you've got the right idea. If Verizon actually did acquire Sprint, your plan/pricing wouldn't change at all, especially if you had a contract. I believe they'd probably even let you continue to keep the same setup as long as you were willing to sign another contract. Contracts mean they are guaranteed to make money. I don't really see any benefit for the customer, but no disadvantage either. The only benefit would be that Verizon would rake in even more money than before. Do greedy people EVER wake up and say, "I'm gonna take a break from ruling the world"??

    Is that voice only, or does it include data?

    Good catch. Temporary dislexia on my part .

I mean - I'm not going to go out and spend another 500-600 bucks just to get a phone for a different network just because a new carrier came in. VZ would be shooting itself in the foot if they started crazy changing rates and such.

    Sorry if that didn't make too much sense - not feeling so hot
    While I agree that it would take a long time for the deal to go through, my principles won't let me be a Verizon customer for any period of time. I try not to shop at WalMart unless I have no other choice for a product because of their **** poor business practices, and I won't be a Verizon customer for the same reason. They, and all of the other Baby Bell companies are the lowest common denomiator when it comes to fair business practices and competion. The only reason that I have them as my home phone right now is because I have an alarm system and no other land line provider in the area. As soon as a VoIP provider gets fax/alarm capabilty, which should be soon, I am gone.
