Ugh, Ian's right. That phrase has been violently co-opted by the
carriers. Much as I like "The free(d) phone", I don't think we can use
that anywhere outside the geek community.
I suspect that few, if any, of us are going to be able to figure out how
to advertise this phone to a non-geek. Hopefully FIC has some
traditional marketing fu up their sleeve...
