	I'd hold off on too much of the negativity just yet... 
(including the wiki) has been working intermittently (I was looking 
earlier for a discussion elsewhere) and many has been the server, both 
high and low, humbled by a /. story.

I'd also be less worried about a phone company that can't keep its 
webserver up than the fact that my phone company couldn't keep its phone 
activation infrastructure up...

	Somebody also mentioned the GSM stack...  Apparently there are no open 
or openable GSM stacks (same old story there) but the GSM portion of the 
phone was separated off and black boxed.  I seem to recall another 
component was done like that as well, but my memory is hazy.
