Ah, finally. I think a few of us saw this coming. AT&T and Verizon have agreed to be friends again. They hugged it out and warm fuzzies were felt inside.

Apparently an AT&T rep boarded a company jet and flew to Verizon HQ to meet Lowell McAdam with a bouquet of roses and box of chocolates in hand.  They shared a tear-jerking heart-string-pullin’ moment together as they gazed deep within each others eyes and then – to surprise and amazement of those around them – the duo sang “Happy Together“.

It was Epic. I was there for the whole thing.

Seriously though. The guys over at gizmodo got a little note from AT&T informing them of the news, and in turn posted it. I wasn’t really there. Heck, the sing-along may not have even happened.  Or maybe it did. Did it? I’m confused.

Here’s the full legal text:

IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED AND AGREED by and between Plaintiff/Counterclaim Defendant Cellco Partnership d/b/a Verizon Wireless (“Verizon Wireless”) and Defendant/Counterclaim Plaintiff AT&T Mobility LLC (“AT&T”) that pursuant to Rule 41(a) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure: (a) Verizon Wireless’s claims against AT&T in the above- captioned action are hereby dismissed without prejudice, and (b) AT&T’s counterclaims against Verizon Wireless in the above-captioned action are hereby dismissed without prejudice.

So seriously. Anyone else besides me not surprised at all?
