AT&T (T) is trying to get rivals including MetroPCS (PCS) and Leap Wireless (LEAP) to sell spectrum and subscribers to rivals like Sprint (S) in the hopes of rescuing its $39B takeover of T-Mobile (DTEGF.PK) from the clutches of a DOJ anti-competition lawsuit. A botched deal would cost AT&T $3B-plus-perks.

    That's a silly way to go about it, AT&T, with this administration. Try this instead: give LOTS of money to Obama's re-election fund. That will get you what you want.

    It's a good thing "working from the road today" has paid off so well for sprint.

    Had MetroPCS gone with Clearwire there would be some synergy for 4G with Sprint, but with MetroPCS building out its own 4g network, Sprint confused as to whether it likes Lightspace more than Clear and most other markets too small to matter... good luck....
