From Texas Standard:

A glitch that causes the Dallas 911 system to receive “ghost calls” from T-Mobile cell phone numbers is preventing callers with real emergencies from getting through. So far, two people have died because they weren't able to make contact with 911 using their T-Mobile phones.

Dallas-based AT&T shocked investors yesterday with its offer to buy T-Mobile USA for $39 billion.  AT&T employs more than 36,000 people in Texas.  T-Mobile has more than 2,000 employees in Dallas alone, according to the Dallas Morning News.  We asked AT&T how the merger might affect jobs at what could soon be the largest cell phone company in the United States.
