T-Mobile Fined $819,000 By FCC

T-Mobile is being fined $819,000 by the FCC for "willfully and repeatedly" violating FCC rules that require U.S. carriers to offer a certain number of hearing aid compatible handsets. The violations apparently took place in 2009 and 2010 and most likely the agency at first warned T-Mobile about its lack of HAC models in its line-up. The government's intention with this regulation is to allow those hard of hearing to enjoy the same feature rich handsets that the general public owns.
