Ever since Telus dropped its plans to acquire Mobilicity, there have been rumors of other would-be suitors joining the fray. They're not rumors anymore -- Mobilicity has confirmed that it's in talks with "multiple parties" interested in a takeover. The Canadian carrier isn't supplying any names, although previous gossip has mentioned Verizon as a possible candidate. There's no guarantee that Mobilicity will find a buyer and avoid an otherwise uncertain future; even so, we wouldn't count on the provider remaining independent for much longer.
