Last October, Softbank, the Japanese wireless company, made an offer to acquire Sprint Nextel. Now there are others that are willing to get a spot on Sprint’s dance card, one of them being DISH Networks, which has now jumped in to acquire the wireless giant. And it gets even better…in order to get this deal done, Sprint Nextel is trying to acquire Clearwire to get their spectrum. In addition, Verizon Wireless has also entered the foray, and is bidding on the Cleariwire spectrum as well.

A couple of weeks ago, I decided that it was time for a new smartphone and to also make the switch from my current carrier to another, which I feel, in my opinion, has been more reliable in my geographical area. I was a loyal supporter of this carrier for almost 10 years; it took me through various phones, including the first, which was a flip phone that had the “old school” keypad for texting, instead of the “QWERTY” style that we have become so accustomed to. These phones (and this carrier to boot) were utilized by me for various conversations, text messages, and even, as I moved into the smartphone realm, a way for me to get online and also connect via social media.
