AT&T buys T-Mobile USA for a reported $39 billion. If approved by government regulators, the deal would make AT&T the largest U.S. carrier.
In hindsight, the acquisition makes a lot of sense for AT&T as AT&T and T-Mobile both use complimentary GSM technology and are building out their HSPA+ networks. In addition, AT&T is planning to use T-Mobile’s existing 1700 MHZ spectrum to supplement its ongoing 4G LTE build out.
After T-Mobile quelled speculation of a rumored Sprint Merger, the company inked a deal with AT&T for $25 billion in cash and $14 billion in stock, giving T-Mobile’s parent company Deutsche Telekom an approximately 8 percent stake in AT&T. The transaction is expected to close within 12 months.

T-Mobile is set to begin testing UMA calling on Android devices according to a Boy Genius post. Unlicensed Mobile Access (UMA) technology provides access to GSM and GPRS mobile services over Wi-Fi. I’ve used T-Mobiles UMA service in the past with a Blackberry device and it’s worked quite well. Despite reports from others claiming intermittent problems with T-Mobiles UMA service with routers other than T-mobiles Linksys WRT54G or the Linksys Hi-Port Router. I experienced no such problems in my daily use. UMA calling on Android would certainly be a welcome addition.
