    Verizon would not warn of shutting down leaks, nor would they care that would be RIM only. And at that, RIM wouldnt tell VZW nor woudl VZW inform its users. they would just shut it down. I would ask your source for more clarification on this

    Well obviously they would because this is the email that was sent out to their employees.... I understand where you are coming from but it is what it is...
