A federal court has maintained a lower court's ruling against BCGI and the companies that subscribe to their prepaid management services including Cingular. The court fined BCGI $128 Million for violating Freedom Wireless' patents from 1997 that cover many aspects of pre-paid phone plans. BCGI provides management and software to Cingular, Western Wireless and other carriers, all of which have be named as co-defendants. Fearing bankruptcy if the judgement stands, BCGI will continue to appeal their case. Cingular will post a bond for BCGI in order to bring the case before a federal Court of Appeals.

Cingular Comes to the RESCUE!

By Cingular posting bond for the company, it shows they ARE the best wireless carrier!
actually it doesnt mean anything though. lol

What does getting fined have to do with the best company?

All this proves is that Cingular sides with dirty criminals....J/K

Them throwing in Cingular's pocket change to post bond is hardly impressive.
