iPhones fake their service indicators? That's ridiculous.
Also, divorce lawyers are probably having an absolute field day with some of the things people put on their facebooks.
It doesn't look like they fake it, it looks like there's just a problem. The "emails" don't say that they meant to, it says there was a mistake that they didn't catch until now, and now they're fixing it.
I don't think that it's really made a difference though.
