T-Mobile sues AT&T over Aio logo

AT&T had to back off from its deal to buy T-Mobile due to pressure from the U.S. government; since then, there has been bad feelings between the nation's second largest carrier and its fourth largest. Who could forget T-Mobile's outspoken CEO John Legere calling AT&T's network "crap" in Las Vegas during CES this past January. AT&T responded with a full-page ad...

thank you. If apple can do rounded corners, then this is viable by me. Go T-Mobile!!! Oh and also in the article it says AT&T responded to Legere's comments at CES by a full page ad, if I recall correctly, wasn't it T-Mobile who did the ad first? Then AT&T responded.

There is a specific Pantone color that's referred to as "Barbie pink". So yeah you sort of can.

Oh come on T-Mobile. You seriously trademarked a color? Really?

Why didn't AT&T use orange, or a nice aqua or something different, like silver? AT&T is blue, vzw red, sprint yellow, cricket green, etc.

Its not even the exact same shade of magenta. Its a completely different shade, as explained by Android Police.

I would try and use the AIO to my advantage if I were T-Mo. I'd put an ad or something out there that says something like "Wanna know the truth about AIO? Come see a T-Mobile store for details" to try and get customers to come into the T-Mobile stores.
