Business Week has an article highlighting the plight of innovative companies like Rebtel Networks who American operators block. Recently this year we saw Truphone in the UK win a battle against TMobile, will a similar court case be fought here in the states? The iPhone woke up a country of people who thought mobile phones were just for text and voice, it will only be a matter of time until a popular service (torrents on mobile phones?) gets released and one of the 4 popular operators refuses to support it and chaos will ensue.
Update: It’s all over Techmeme, people can’t use Twitter on TMobile and they’re outraged. The revolution has begun.
