Comment Ethically OR intellectually challenged. (Score 3, Insightful) 371

I think he's half right. Either the company is intelligent yet ethically challenged, in that they know that they are violating the GPL yet do not care, or they are ethically sound but intellectually challenged, in that they don't know they're controverting the license. I believe one of these scenarios is the case.

Alltel? Seriously? Take it from someone who has sold cell phones for every major carrier (and most of the smaller ones): There is a reason why Alltel sold so cheap to Verizon. They're basically just a Verizon MVNO nowadays. Somewhere around 75-80% of their coverage base is supplied by-- ding, Verizon O&O towers.

If you're shopping for a cell phone contract on price alone nowadays, you should be buying Sprint. $69.99 for unlimited data, messaging, and calling to every mobile phone in America. No, I'm not a corporate rep-- anymore. Just like I'm no longer a corporate rep for AT&T, USCellular, or anyone else. Stay informed, people.

(No, I'm not going to knock Verizon. I'm not a fan of them, but they have better coverage than anyone, at least out west where I'm at. They're expensive, but in certain places, you get what you pay for.)
