Rebel (a declarative statement)

At least that's what T-Mobile wants you to do. It's now the only wireless carrier in the U.S. not to offer the iPhone. But it's not for lack of trying. C'mon, the Fonz wouldn't use an iPhone, right? Eeeeehhhhh, you want to be like the Fonz, don't you?

The New York Times reports: "T-Mobile is performing a balancing act in responding to the snub. The carrier is clearly disappointed it doesn't have the iPhone. Its chief marketing officer, Cole Brodman, wrote a blog post addressed to its customers last month that said "the iPhone is a great device and Apple knows that we'd like to add it to our line-up." T-Mobile executives say the decision is up to Apple, not the carrier." On Wednesday the company came out with two new, Android-based phones. It claims the HTC Amaze and Samsung Galaxy S II are better than the iPhone 4S.

Ringo just wants the same phone the other fellows have.
