I feel so strongly about this it made me come out of the shadows and register!

RIM DOES have a workaround. It just happened to inconvenience customers by making them load software on all of their BlackBerry's. RIM had to look at what was the better option: Force customers to "service pack" handhelds and STILL face a possible injunction and more litigation if NTP challenged the workaround too, which you know they would


Settle and have it all over with?
