lol That's about as stupid a move as back in the day when Verizon didn't make a deal with the iPhone and ATT ended up getting it exclusively. His loss. There's no reason to exclude any phone manufacturer from your wireless network.

China doesn't lose out on anything, they have the rare earths, the population and the money.

You're so far up the Apple anus that you're blind to these facts and laugh?

The wireless carriers here and abroad are getting hosed for taking in the Iphone, they do it to make their services more attractive, not because it makes them tons of money.

I'm just saying it's dumb to not allow a phone on your network. We should be able to buy w/e phone on w/e network and use it. Simple.

I'm not so sure it' that simple.
There's also the matter of sharing mobile bandwidth.
