I don't understand what is wrong about selling a device that has
1) FCC approval
2) GSM certification
The whole point about having norms and standards is that you do _not_
have to talk to each and every vendor and/or operator, but that everyone
just complies with those starndards, have stringend certification
procedures, and ensure inter-vendor and cross-operator interoperability.
