I'm thinking this may be a bad idea what do you ladies think. I have AT&T and like them i left verizon b/c i was paying alot more but with that said if AT&T owns most of the cell business what competition is going to keep their prices down.  You won't have anywhere else to turn there are very few providers that have service where i live.  Also what do those of you who are in a contract think about being moved to AT&T and not being able to get out of the contract??

I have tmobile for cell, Thankfully..LOL I don't care for AT&T... At least the office in my area.. They are ALL idiots.. I left them and switched to Verizon FIOS for my house phone, cable, and Internet..

If I had Verizon cell I would probably keep it until the contract was up(it said that at&t would let you keep your contract)and then find someone else..

It's only in 79 areas throughout a handfull of states according to that site, and we're not in one of those areas!  YAY!  My DH's work phone is at&t and his service is awful, we have verizon for our personal service and love it

I have Verizon and I sure hope they aren't merging with AT&T...I HATE AT&T. Only Verizon, US Cellular and Sprint get service where I live.

 one of the tabs says "About the merger" and tells you in more detail who will be affected
