While I think Verizon will win this suit hands down, its pretty simple to see why people are upset. As a consumer, you should read the fine print, but let's be honest, when you hear something has a feature that you want, you get excited. Verizon customers were particularly excited as this was the first BT phone for their carrier. While Verizon did nothing illegal, it generally a poor business practice to cripple your products and strategically not mention it to client. If I were to conduct research for a client, and not mention that i will not be providing them with a report . . . Well, you can see where that's going.

Two points
a) Verizon did nothing illegal
b) Verizon did "mislead" people who they knew weren't going to fully check out the details.


I really like this post... simple and to the point. I agree that it's a poor business strategy, I personally would have voted the idea down if I were a board member, or whatever, but hey... c'est la vie.
