T-Mobile fined $819,000 by FCC
by producing evidence that would allow the carrier to refute the charges.
Acoustic coupling turns both desired and undesired sounds into electrical signals, which are turned back into sound by the hearing-aid speaker. The inductive coupling (telecoil) turns sound into magnetic fields which are reproduced as sound by a hearing aid. Because the microphone is off for the latter process, there is no feedback which is normally heard when a hearing aid is pressed against a telephone earpiece. Background noise and over amplification are also both eliminated.

No kidding. I read this article and thought "There goes all those LTE upgrades!" Lol. I'll just go upgrade to an Amaze 4G 42Mbps HSPA+ phone from my Sensation 4G. That tech is already in place... lol I saw one off those getting 21Mbps actual throughout the other day. I was shocked.

It would be nice but TMO USA is a company that doesn't listen or pay attention to customers. For example, while all want the HTC one X, they would rather offer the poor One S. Note Tmo USA is the first to Forster Android, HTC, and is dedicated to Nokia. Again instead of offering the Nokia lumia 900, they would rather sell the 710. Also they could have even offered the Titan 1, but no they would rather take the HTC Radar! Now you see why they are fined almost a million dollars. They don't even pay attention to the FCC.

You'll see how many more One S will be sold compared the AT&T One X. Get ready!

Yeah, but the one S will be sold as the incredible 4g on Verizon.

I'm surprised that it was tmobile that got charged.

Another reason why the merger should have went thru!! you cant supply phones for certain groups of people. Tmobile is trying to stay afloat and this wont help!!

I'm torn between my hatred of tmobile and my hatred of government meddling. If tmobile doesnt want to offer HAC devices that should be their choice.

Agreed (about the government meddling, I have no reason to hate T-Mobile).
It would be nice to get free funding for my business by fining other companies that are providing actual goods. Nothing wrong with this picture.
