From the web site and charges: "The issue is not whether Verizon has the right to disable hardware features; they unquestionably do have such rights. The problem is the fashion in which the features were advertised. If a feature on an open market piece of hardware is modified to a consumerxxx8217;s detriment, the modifier must make the announcement of the modification loud and clear to allow the consumer to make an informed decision. Verizon did not make such announcements and consumers received a phone less valuable than that which could have purchased on the open market.



The suit will likely resolve when Verizon offers minimal concessions to its 8830 users, but Verizon could have avoided this type of publicity by modifying its marketing practices "


makes sense to me. But who am I to say? I went with Sprint and have no such issues!
