Vodafone isn't opposed to T-Mobile's exclusivity contract with Apple, but wants sales practices examined. The order doesn't aim to stop complete sales of the iPhone in Germany.
Vodafone takes issue with the mandatory long-term contract offered by T-Mobile and Apple for the iPhone.
Head of Vodafone's German unit, Friedrich Joussen stated, "We want it to be available to buyers without a mandatory calling plan," he said. "If I had wanted to halt sales, I could have, but I didn't." He expects a ruling within two weeks.
Vodafone owns 45% of Verizon Wireless which lost the iPhone contract here in the United States.
