sbiddle: 2degrees blocking devices is only a recent thing, they previously had no ability to do this. One of the reasons I wrote my blog post a year ago was to highlight the issue.
"2degrees blocking devices is only a recent thing"
About that, I called 2 degrees today (again), and they again reiterated that they do NOT have the capacity to do so.
I'm not sure who's correct, but at least their customer support is telling people they can't block them.
