    Old School Vodafone is so upset with the massive popularity of the
    iPhone in Germany they have gone to court to try and block their own
    downfall!

    Wow!

    We all knew this would happen sooner or later, but Germany's poorly
    managed Vodafone unit has gone to court to stop Cell Phone advancements
    in the the country of Germany. They can't stand the iPhone's pressure,
    so are seeking court relief before they go under.

    This will be good for everyone!

    DUESSELDORF - The German unit of Vodafone Group PLC (VOD) has obtained a
    restraining order against Deutsche Telekom AG's (DT) T-Mobile unit
    prohibiting the German telecommunications giant from selling Apple
    Inc.'s (AAPL) iPhone in Germany.

    The restraining order was issued by a regional court in Hamburg Monday,
    a Vodafone Deutschland spokesman told Dow Jones Newswires.

    Vodafone is questioning Deutsche Telekom's iPhone sales practices, the
    spokesman said. Deutsche Telekom is marketing the iPhone exclusively in
    Germany.

    Specifically, Vodafone is questioning the iPhone's exclusive use in
    T-Mobile's network and the use of the device being limited to certain
    fees within T- Mobile's subscription offerings.

    Vodafone isn't generally opposed to T-Mobile's exclusivity contract with
    Apple, but wants to have these new sales practices examined, the
    spokesman said. The restraining order doesn't aim at a total sales stop,
    he added.

    A spokesman for T-Mobile Monday confirmed the restraining order has been
    issued, adding that the company is examining the issue. So far, it is
    too early to comment on possible consequences for the company, he said.

    Moron Oxford.....

    He just doesn't get it, I guess.

    Clue: his editorializing is what negates everything he says.
    Fanatical fanboy fantasy - decidedly delusional.

    It's one thing to post speculation. Then, to top it off, he posts the
    most inane and grossly inaccurate 'predictions' (I use the term in jest).

    He MAY have gotten by (now and in the past) with just posting
    his (trolling) 'info'... (again, using the term loosely). It's the wild,
    crazy speculation - always done in the most obnoxious tone possible ,
    that makes ALL he posts not only suspect - but downright laughable.

    Oxford - rapidly becoming the poster boy of Usenet fanboy lunacy.

    Last sentence below... "WE" - you mean YOU (and only you)

    poor cozmic, doesn't even understand that "who wins the iphone contract"
    WINS the entire handset market going forward.

    SJ is the now KING maker of the cell industry...

    vodafone, is freaking out since they lost the apple contract, so they
    are crying out... into court... verizon is next to cry wolf, just watch.

    apple is waaaaay tooo powerful for simple little cell providers like
    verizon to complain. they are dead in the water unless they give in and
    accept apple's rules. they failed once to win the iphone contract.

    SJ will crush them until they do.

    WOW...Talk about reading between the lines and inserting your own
    unfounded observations! Or are they someone else's observations and you
    forgot to quote them?

    You know this for a fact? Citation please.

    Ummm...the suit is about business practices. English must be your second

    Cell phone advancements? Is T-Mobile selling a real phone? I thought this
    was abvout their sales practices for the iPhone? The iPhone is old
    technology in the cellular world, except for the interface.

    Go under? Aren't they the largest cell company on the planet?

    No- sadly enough, Oxturd can barely handle a primary language. His parents
    would kick him out of the basement forever if he tried to learn a second
    one. After all, they have limits on how much stupidity they can tolerate.

    yes, thanks for proving my point. Vodafone is financially weak and
    likely can't survive the advancements of the iPhone in their
    non-competitive markets.

    SJ tends to calls these firms "squishy".

    Now you know.

    On a side note, that must mean that Windoze users and Wintrolls are
    squishy for not educating themselves on OS alternatives and kowtowing to
    Ballmer.

    yes, but only under the thin guise of... ****! --- the iPhone is selling
