    I don't get this.
    My understanding is that the open access requirement refers to the network side, meaning that the network has to accept every phone that can connect to it. Verizon can offer...

    So you really believe this interference thing? :wow:

    And you also believe that companies like US Cellular, MetroPCS, Leap, etc bought their block A licenses just to sit on them?

    As soon as they refarm part of the spectrum,...
