    Yep. I imagine the Cricket, Att, Metro, etc will stop carrying their phones(no new orders). BestBuy, Target, etc, will probably also stop selling their phones after current stock is depleted.

    Pretty much the death penalty for US sales.

    I think this is good move. Not only for them illegally selling phones to Iran but the fact their phones sends data back to the Chinese Government. I hope Huawei is next.

    Bummer cuz I've had nothing but good luck with Huawei and ZTE phones the last 5 years. Currently sporting a V8 Pro on my main line and using a Blade Zmax for tablet duties. I would think that ZTE would look to Huawei for Kirin processors if they can't get Snapdragons.

    Seems Huawei is content not even trying to break into the u.s. market anymore, likely zte will follow.

    So we can tell a Chinese company not to ship cell phones to Iran? I see many Iranians with iPhones in Iran.

    You'll also find pixel devices in Iran,doesn't mean Google sold them to them.

    Also we didn't tell a Chinese company they couldn't sell to anyone, we told them if they are going to use our parts they have to follow our rules and sanctions, zte made their own choice on who to sell to knowing full well the consequences of their choice. It's like if a cop tells you if you drive drunk I will arrest you, the cop didn't tell you you couldn't drive drunk, you can if you want to, just you will suffer the consequences of it if you do.

    Huawei does not sell it's chips to outside companies. Don't think they will be in a huge rush to help zte either. The most likely place zte will turn to is mediatek.

    Agreed. For all of the noise about this crippling ZTE, I have a hard time believing a Chinese company can't manage to build phones without American tech.

    Oh well. I guess I'll just have to get my cheap mid-range phones from Alcatel and Moto/Lenovo from now on...

    Interesting how they said that this could be settled in 3-5 months. Bottom line is China has more than 1 billion more people than the U.S. and more and more companies are looking to get into the Chinese market. This sounds like a tough measure and a way to stick it to an overseas company, but a lot of people's favorite phones are either made in or have parts produced in China. This tough talk may make some people feel happy, but if you start eliminating companies that make lower to mid-range smartphones, you won't be helping the consumer who can't afford the $700-$1,000 smartphones.

    You'd think after paying a billion $ fine they would have learned. What were they thinking?

    And their response is quite comical: "...not acceptable", lol? To me, that shows they deserve the punishment.

    All that said, I love my Blade Zmax.

    The ZTE void will be filled quickly by other manufacturers YTE, XTE that are in Vietnam, Taiwan or other Chinese manufacturers. This is just politics. Move on guys, you will still get your mid range smartphones in no time.

    I bought one today. The salesman, who otherwise was very informed knew nothing about it, and read another article stating ZTE was going to fight it.
