Verizon Wireless Challenges FCC Auction Rules
Sep 13, 2007, 3:01 PM by (staff)
Claiming that the rules set forth for the upcoming FCC 700 MHz auction violate the law, Verizon filed a lawsuit with the U.S. Court of Appeals to challenge the FCC to change them.

It's more crap from Verizon

Usually some crap from Korea makes up their high end, or whatever Audiovox fished out of the dumpster. Sprint customers get more out of Verizon's network than Ver...
