Allegedly fraudulent. If the phone was actually fraudulent he doesn't have an argument - but the claim is that the phone was shut down for fraud when it was not a fraudulent phone. It would be good to get an update that the problem was fixed - but with this coming from a friend of a friend via twitter I don't expect to see one. Negative press travels faster than positive messages and corrections/updates seem to travel slowest of all. And now back to DIRECTV ... any stories about how they are treating customers who are having trouble paying?
