Re: Exagerate Much?
I honestly don't see what the big deal is as long as it's possible to easily hack around these restrictions.
For the longest time Verizon locked down their non-smartphones so you couldn't load ringtones and wallpaper without going through their marketplace. Those of us with Motorola phones knew how to hack around these restrictions though. It was as easy as downloading the appropriate software and uploading your wallpaper/ringtones to the phone. It was always the first thing I did when I got a new device.
I ordered a Droid-X. I'll be rooting it so I don't have to pay them extra for the privilege of tethering. From all accounts they don't care if you do this as long as you aren't doing anything really obnoxious (running p2p over the tethered link....), so what's the big deal?
