    No they're engaged, they'll be getting married in about a year. ;)

    I have a friend who's actually happy about this. He's a T-Mobile user and has wanted an iPhone for a long time but wasn't willing to switch carriers for whatever reason.

    Whats going on with T-Mobile? In the US they are hitching up with AT&T. In the UK they have teamed up with Orange. Is this some form of weird international business plan?

    T-Mobile is outta dollars, therefore they need money.

    does this mean that the iPhone will be brought over to T-Mobile, as well?

    I heard all AT&T customers will be paying a 15% increase in their monthly phone bill as a wedding gift. :)

    Actually we will be gaining a lot with this merger including WAY better reception/call quality/and less dropped calls. Please refer to this link and article. Read it and you will understand the benefits.

    1) Can't believe the joke went over everyone's head
    2) While subtle and nicely played, it was still a pretty terrible joke.

    If you think that your 3G service will improve because of the merger, then you're crazy.

    AT&T 3G will still be overcrowded and have horrible data service.

    T-mobile's network (1700 MHz) is slated to become the new LTE network, so if you're willing to pay for a brand new LTE plan THEN you'll probably see some improvement.

    Agreed. I have never had connection issues unless I'm at a very crowed event like a football game with 80,000 fans.

    The plan was to have five of them, but it may not work out.
