well i guess my question is implied in the thread title. I'm curious. If you are an employee of one of those cell providers: Do you own one? Are you even allowed to own one? If there's no rule that says you can't own one would the fact that you did still be frowned upon? Obviously the same questions could be asked about any handheld device that is exclusive to a competitor. Btw this thread is not a lame attempt at trying to get sprint Tmobile or Verizon employees to admit to owning one. I do however think it's an interesting topic because the number of people employed by these companies must in the thousands. I guess I would feel really bad for so many people that might want an iPhone but can't because of their employer or because of fear of losing career advancing opportunities etc.
