Never happen, the FCC and DOJ made Verizon jump through a lot of hoops to get Alltel, letting the buyout of Sprint wouldn't happen b/c Verizon would be too big
and yeah buying other networks with different technologies doesn't work just ask Sprint Nextel. funny thing actually Dan Hesse (CEO Sprint) flat out said in an interview the other day that buying Nextel was a huge mistake that shouldn't have happened

i really need to learn how to multi-quote

Re: deutsche-telekom-eyeing-sprint-nextel-for-acquisition/

Don't worry; this "report" comes from the Telegraph. It's as reputable as a blog.

If you actually read to article, you will see words like:
"T-Mobile and Orange are expected to..."
"DT will probably..."
"It is understood that DT has been..."
"It is thought DT will also..."
"DT, Sprint and Deutsche Bank all refused to comment."

These are just rumors and speculation. There is no news here.
