    More on MetroPCS (PCS): Q2 earnings missed the mark as margins declined on higher costs and a sharp slowdown in subscriber growth. New customer growth was the lowest in nearly 2 years as the pre-paid wireless provider tries to remain relevant in a market dominated by Verizon Wireless (VZ, VOD)and AT&T (T). Shares -16.5% premarket.

    AT&T’s (T) bid to acquire T-Mobile (DTEGY.PK) got a boost yesterday from 11 state attorneys general and a Louisiana regulator, all of whom suggested that the takeover would lead to better mobile service and thus would serve the public interest. But a top law firm that has handled past class actions against AT&T is trying to block the merger by inundating it with arbitration claims.

    Time Warner Cable (TWC) drops 4.2% after releasing Q2 results.

Comcast (CMCSA -1.2%), Cablevision (CVC -0.8%), and Charter (CHTR -1.9%) are moving lower in sympathy. (PR) (transcript)

    Ahead of Juniper's (JNPR) Q2 results today, there are concerns about whether the company can benefit further from Cisco's (CSCO) struggles. Investors are also concerned about customers waiting for upgrades to the company's innovative QFabric switching platform, and mixed capex messages from AT&T (T) and Verizon (VZ).

    BGR reports AT&T (T) is informing employees it expects a surge in store traffic in September, suggesting this is when Apple's (AAPL) next iPhone will be introduced. During its FQ3 CC, Apple talked of a "future product transition" possibly affecting FQ4 sales, which was taken by many to mean a new iPhone will soon arrive.

    Bernstein's Craig Moffett sees cable providers such as Comcast (CMCSA), Time Warner Cable (TWC), and Cablevision (CVC) having a rough Q2, expecting them to collectively lose 322K subscribers. However, Moffett doesn't see "cord cutting" as a big culprit, given the cable losses are offset by 386K net additions for AT&T (T) and Verizon's (VZ) fiber-based services.

    A review of Verizon (VZ) and AT&T's (T) Q2 results shows the former outpacing the latter: While Verizon added 2.2M total subscribers and 1.3M retail post-paid subs, AT&T added 1.1M and 331K, respectively. AT&T did beat Verizon in iPhone activations, though this was likely impacted by AT&T having a larger iPhone user base to draw upgrades from.

    As the FCC extends its review of the deal, AT&T (T +1.2%) says it's on track to close its purchase of T-Mobile USA in Q1 2012. With wireline revenues having fallen 3.2% Y/Y in Q2, and wireless growth starting to slip with the loss of iPhone exclusivity, AT&T has plenty of reasons to go want T-Mobile's 33M+ U.S. subscribers.

    The FCC is extending its review of AT&T's (T) $39B purchase of T-Mobile USA (DTEGY.PK) after AT&T submitted new economic data to bolster its case. One opponent described the move as an admission that the carriers will have to meet a "stiffer burden" to justify the merger. (previous)

    Samsung (SSNLF.PK) says it will release its Galaxy S II Android phone, which has seen booming international sales, to U.S. carriers in August. It's been speculated the phone will be sold by AT&T (T), Verizon (VZ), and Sprint (S), much like its predecessor. The Galaxy S II's U.S. invasion could upend Motorola's (MMI) comeback plans.
