Verizon cripples new RAZRs- why is anyone surprised?

RazrWe’ve mentioned many times on jkOnTheRun how Verizon has crippled almost every phone they’ve introduced in some way or another but it seems WIRED doesn’t read this site.  A WIRED author has written an article about the RAZR that he and his brother bought around the same time and his brother is upset that his Verizon RAZR won’t let him download MP3 ringtones from his PC while the author’s Cingular RAZR will.  It’s no secret that Verizon wants you to buy your ringtones from them and not use the music files you already own on the RAZR.  Caveat emptor.
