Any particular reason why you would want to have only one provider for your BB? If your users are concentrated in one area I can understand, but if they are spread across the US you may want to focus on best coverage.

I guess pricing would probably be a good second criterion. However, it's probably best to determine your selection criteria by considering why you're consolidating carriers. Personally, with all else equal, I'd favor a GSM carrier.

The big 2 - Cingular and Verizon - assuming they both have good coverage in the area they will be used the most would be a good starting point.

Do your users travel worldwide? If yes, than select Cingular or an other GSM carrier.

I support users all over the US, with the largest concentration in Michigan. We standardize on Nextel where the coverage is good, but in other cities we have gone with other carriers. Philly does not have good coverage for Nextel - they are by far a Verizon area. Georgia and Florida seem to have adequate Sprint coverage.
