    Still waiting to officially hear from the DOJ & FCC to approve the merger, the DOJ has said unofficially that they will approve it & the FCC unofficially said 3 of the 5 members are for the draft proposal but 2 haven't made a decision yet. It is taking longer then anyone expected.

    From what I've read lately, I think the hold-up is due to the FCC requesting divestitures of overlapping service in some markets. I think once Cingular agrees, then it will be official. Just guessing...
