    This is rediculous! Its basically the same reason wireless companies in america are fighting selling unlocked phones. They want us in their grips for as long as possible, holding us by our ankles and shaking the money out of our pockets like the stereotypical school bully stealing our lunch money. The only way to deal with a bully is to stand up to him, so hopefully somebody stands up to big bad Apple. ~via smartphone~

    If a company has unfair practices, such as locking a purchased handset and refusing to allow unlocking of a handset for use on other carriers by playing on a underhanded copyright OS loophole that is almost unrelated to the true topic, then outside of the Court's power, it should be the consumer that voices complaint and stops purchasing the product.

    The Court's ruling should be that Apple either provide the necessary provisions to allow customers to unlock phone or allow customers to continue to "jail break" and open that Pandora's box (OS being altered). Apple chose to tie in the phone being locked to the OS to help keep it locked. This isn't a standard with other mobile OS's and they should be punished accordingly. Other countries have not played into Apple's locking/one carrier deal and blocked it (as they should).

    I never understood things like this, its the same as people sueing Microsoft for including internet explorer. Its their product if you dislike it buy something else.

    Not really. The iPhone is a unique device in that in order to unlock it in most circumstances (not sure how the sim adaptor works) you have to modify the software at the base level to remove the locks.

    On any other phone you can enter a long code that will unlock it. There are also hardware solutions used on other phones that remove the subsidy code with no major modifications to the software (at least none the end user would ever notice).

    ~via smartphone~ I get why apple is anal about the jailbreaking of their phones I work in cellphones and have had people try this basiclly people get 5 line family plans all iphones then cancel the service and sell the iphones online for triple the price and jailbroken so this has apple and att lose money I hate resellers I throw them out my store all the time for iphones too I'm all for if a customer is legit then let him do what he wants with his phone iphone or not but that's the main focus why apple is making such a big deal its because of the resellers
