Who didn’t see this coming? Verizon wasn’t too keen on the whole “revealing our device before we have a chance to” thing that went down with the Motorola Shadow and decided to take some action. According to Gizmodo’s original tipster, the gym employee that found the lost phone has since been fired.


They say Verizon pulled him into a few meetings to discuss how he found the phone and to discuss what he did with it and how the pictures ended up on the internet. The end result was him being fired and Verizon showing up at his house yesterday (5/26) to take his gym key. It seems like the tipster wasn’t too fond of his friend getting fired, stating that he thought the employee that lost the phone in the first place should’ve been at fault.

All is well as that gym employee was only an intern and his internship was up at the end of this week. Still, he can’t be too happy that his bridge was just burned with the biggest mobile operator in the United States. Stop by Gizmodo for the full transcript.
