    Not true. Sprint has already bought and transferred ownership of a
    number of Qwest towers in Montana and Wyoming as well as selected
    towers in some other Qwest markets. The change in ownership became
    effective on May 27th on some of them and June 14th on others.
    Basically Sprint got first dibs on anything they wanted from Qwest and
    Verizon gets what's leftover. There was likely a lot of equipment that
    Sprint didn't want or need (towers that were already Sprint/Qwest
    co-located or in close proximity to one another) and that's what will
    go to Verizon as part of the deal they just announced. So this is a
    win-win situation for both Sprint and Verizon.

    Not true. Sprint has already bought and transferred ownership of a
    number of Qwest towers in Montana and Wyoming as well as selected
    towers in some other Qwest markets. The change in ownership became
    effective on May 27th on some of them and June 14th on others.
    Basically Sprint got first dibs on anything they wanted from Qwest and
    Verizon gets what's leftover. There was likely a lot of equipment that
    Sprint didn't want or need (towers that were already Sprint/Qwest
    co-located or in close proximity to one another) and that's what will
    go to Verizon as part of the deal they just announced. So this is a
    win-win situation for both Sprint and Verizon.

    So by not buying all the Towers, SprintPCS is ignoring its still
    uncovered areas of Wyoming, Montana, North & South Dakota? Check the map.
