verizon clueless?

Apparently Verizon is including text ads on all of the photos uploaded to services like Flickr, from any of their cellphones. I really hope this isn't true. Really hoping that one of the largest cell phone providers isn't that out of touch with what's important to their users, to the industry and social media.

I couldn't find examples in a quick search on Flickr, so I opted to include a photo of Rob, enjoying BBQ, instead. I think it's just as appropriate.

I've heard similar things, one of which at a trend-following discussion. Something regarding cell phones that show advertisements on screen, which then enables consumers to purchase them for free or a ridiculously nominal cost. I think there's a UK company that started doing it... Might be someone silly like Sprint.
