There's a political/criminal case going on in Cuba right now where a US citizen, Alan Gross, is charged with some pretty scary (in regards to potential punishment) crimes against the State.
Basically they're accusing him of working for an arm of the US gov't to encourage rebellion.
Leaving aside all the politics there's a point I'm having trouble understanding.
One claim is that he was distributing cell phones to the community there.
Anyone know how that could possibly work? There's no way a handheld cell phone would reach any "Western" (as in US or carribean island) towers. And even if they were frequency and format compatable with whatever Cuba's using, they'd need to have accounts established with the carrier.
Any ideas? Thanks
