The generation of talking face-to-face is slowly fading away, and the technology era is going to keep on growing. One of the most widely used technology services known today is the cellular phone industry. According to the Pew Research Center’s website, 90% of American adults own a cell phone. Of that 90%, the smartphone ownership is at 64% (2013). Verizon Wireless, along with the other major carriers, T-Mobile, Sprint, and AT&T, have taken this data and comprised a growing industry where competition arises from all angles. These companies have battled one another on pricing, plans, and customer service for many years in order to stay on top. Unfortunately, these are major factors in whether or not a customer will choose the particular company over another.

Verizon is a major telecommunication provider in the United States. The company is the market leader, with $110 billion revenue and $2.4 billion in profit (MSN Moneycentral, 2012). Verizon has steady revenue streams that are largely based on a subscription model. It has several business segments, including wireless (63.3% of revenues) and wireline (36.7%) (2011 Verizon Annual Report). Most of this report will therefore focus on the wireless business, not only because this is the largest business that the company operates but because it is a rapidly growing and evolving business as well, a function of the rapid pace of smartphone adoption in America.

It seems like T-Mobile doesn’t get out of one problem and get into another. Last year a National Labor Relations Board judge decided that the employment policies of T-Mobile defied the United States labor law by impeding workers’ ability to organize and other rights. One of the policies prevented workers from communicating with each other about wages, speaking to the news media about job conditions and speaking with co-workers to organize evidence against disciplinary

For more than a century they have consistently provided innovative, reliable high quality products and services and excellent customer care. They are recognized as the leading provider of IP-based communications services and businesses. They’re also the top U.S. provider of wireless, high speed internet access, WIFI, local and long distance voice, and directory publishing and advertising services.
Have you ever wondered how your phone company started out? Or the new innovations it has brought about? And maybe even how the business is run? Well, today I’m going to talk about AT&T’s history, the products it sells, the employee jobs and U-verse.
In a $35 billion deal, Sprint Nextel prides itself on being able to provide innovative services and technology to a wide range of consumers, business associates, and government officials. Although Mr. Forsee has said, “This merger positions Sprint Nextel for greater success than either company could have achieved alone," there are many obstacles that Sprint Nextel must overcome in order to become the leading cell phone network provider. First, one must examine the problems with Sprint and Nextel before the merger.
In analyzing Verizon's strengths, it is apparent that they have strong brand recognition in the market and industry. They are not only the leader in market share for wireless presence in the U.S., they were also ranked at the top for branding and customer loyalty in the wireless phone category and received the 2005 BrandWeek Customer Loyalty Award as a result (Verizon Customer Satisfaction Award & Recognition, 2005).

One night in 1981, Jeff Munks, a police office in San Jose, CA responded to an urgent call and arrived at a residence where a Vietnamese immigrant who spoke no English was screaming and waving his arms agitatedly. Next to him, his son was having trouble breathing. After Jeff guessed what had been happening and immediately called for an ambulance, he kept thinking about emergency situations where danger is exacerbated because of a language barrier.
