quote: If you are a Cell phone manufacturer, why do you care which provider people use your product on? Wouldn't it be better for you to allow people to use it on any provider, so you can sell more?
quote: Doesn't that sound a little big like an illegal monopoly?
quote: Apple gets 40% of every iPhone phone bill (O2 operator). I'd say the answer to your question is pretty obvious :)
quote: The guardian is reporting that Apple can command a 40% revenue share over whatever O2 (a UK wireless operator) will make from iPhone users...
quote: Wait a sec, isn't AT&T paying them for the right to sell Apple's product? Doesn't that sound a little big like an illegal monopoly?
quote: Apple treats their customers terribly, that is more than enough reason to avoid buying their products. At the prices they charge they should be providing premium levels of service to back up their premium priced products.
quote: Ya, way different from Microsoft making it so users all over the world can't download shows or movies from Xbox Live Marketplace.

quote: pple reserves the right to refuse service on iPhones that are outside their warranty period if damage has occurred due to accident, abuse, misuse or unauthorized modifications.
quote: Well, in this case the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act likely wouldn't apply
quote: The other argument is that Apple caused the damage to the phone by creating/releasing this firmware update. But for this challenge to work, you would have to prove that Apple specifically designed this firmware to target and disable unlocked phones. That would be very hard to prove.
quote: The person who altered the firmware already technically "broke" the phone by Apple's warranty standards
quote: The phones weren't useless until Apple released the update.
quote: 5. Computer programs in the form of firmware that enable wireless telephone handsets to connect to a wireless telephone communication network, when circumvention is accomplished for the sole purpose of lawfully connecting to a wireless telephone communication network.

quote: I find it very ironic how when the iPhone first came out, everyone and their mothers bashed it on here because it was so expensive, it was only available on one provider, and last but not least - it was made by APPLE so no one would ever buy one.
quote: Now that the unlocking ability came out, i see some of the same people who bashed the iPhone are now pissed at Apple that they cannot use it on their own network.
quote: Did they just bash it because it was the cool thing to do, because they couldnt afford it, because it was made by apple? If they hated it so much, why do they care so much about whether apple is allowing them to use a product that they dont own or want?
quote: Firmware update 1.1.1 works perfectly on normal iPhones, with no reported issues, as expected.
quote: If someone pays for the hardware and decides to hack it to do something Apple doesn't intend but still a legitimate use
