It's only logical that a guy in the cell phone business would donate free phones and service. I'm sure bakeries are donating breads, pizza restaurants are donating pizza, clothing companies donating clothes, and so on. If you owned a company that produced one certain thing, wouldn't you donate that product instead of shelling out cash?
I dont see people complaining about Microsoft giving free laptops to kids, instead of feeding the homeless ones.
The point is, at least this guy is doing SOMETHING within his power. I don't know what the average cell phone bill is over in Japan, but I'm sure not having to pay a dime for it until the kids turn 18 is going to save them quite a lot of money.

At least it's not like katrina in the US where everyone expects the government to save them. Also, I think he offered this instead of food or shelter because so many other entities have already provided that. I'm not saying it isn't needed, but with such a lack of communication over their I'm sure its nice for them to have a way to communicate to the rest of the world.

I believe everyone failed to mention that he did go and provide food, commuter costs and jobs to those in need. Not just a free iPhone with free service. Details failed to mention by the people complaining that an iPhone is one mere pointless gesture. A Great CEO of a giant corporation took the initiative to provide all that he can and more. I doubt any corporations in USA will do this. I believe corporations in the US are the leading cause to our economical downfall.

Does everyone just read the headline and not the article specifically saying he provided more than just a free iPhone with free service. I'm not blind right? I'd hate to repeat myself but I definitely BELIEVE PEOPLE DO NOT READ! Ignorance is bliss really?!?! READ BEFORE YOU POST!
Not to attack you alexevo just the person you quoted and all the other people who just mentioned that a free iPhone with free service is the only thing he provided.

Plus, if you want to say "Not to attack..." then don't say things like "ignorance is bliss", "read before you post", "does everyone read the headline and not the article..." cause those kinda smell like attacks. In fact, your entire post kinda smells like an attack cause if it weren't an attack...well...you wouldn't have posted it in the way that you did.
Perhaps some friendly advice such as: "He offered to buy food, pay for commuter costs, and offered jobs to the people affected by the tragedy" would have sufficed. Worded that way, it doesn't sound like an attack. Merely an "ahem" to call attention to a part of the article.
...I'm just sayin...

This puts America to shame. This guy is very generous and I'm glad he's helping Japan out.Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!

Gosh, people here can be such smartasses these days. He's simply giving out free phones. Never once did he say these phones are meant to save their entire lives or replace parents, friends, and family members. They definitely DO serve a purpose though. These children will no longer have to worry about communication services because it will be provided to them for free. And yes, communication towers are down, but mostly in inhabitable areas anyway. Once everything is rebuilt and put together again, then the phones will receive services within the areas the children will live in the future. Some of you posting here are absolutely dirt and ignorant. Instead of showing how much of an *** you can be, why won't some of you go out to Japan and provide whatever services or products that YOU are adept to? Oh, that's right, most of you are still high school kids or college students that don't think before they speak.

I was wondering how people would manage to turn this wonderful news into an argument of some sort. It's amazing how people can do this.
On topic: I think this is amazing. This is so generous and so sweet of a large company to do something for the people. This act would cost the company money but money apparently is not important for this man that he can give in this way.
For all the people who have managed to see this in a bad light, it's a shame. Be open-minded. A gift is a gift, the act of giving a gift is alone gratifying. Not like he passed out coupons for a discount. He is giving a lot.
