Actually the image was from them. I am typing a copy of the internal retraction and reasoning they sent out.

Some stores have asked about the screen image used on the Blackberry curve in the Flyer and the Insert.

Because wireless phone screens dont always photograph well, we typically paste an image from that phone onto the screen in our ads. Unfortunately, in these two ads, an image from the Samsung BlackJack was used instead.

The Curve does not use Microsoft Windows Mobile and its actual screens look different than what was show in the ad. The picture of the Curve in this article shows the phone in its GPS mode (insert image from AT&T website showing AT&T Nav)

Out advertising team has taken steps to make sure this is corrected in future ads.
