so does this mean that everybody that bought an iPhone and unlocked it using that hack, wont be able to recharge it? if so that would suck for them.

When unauthorized use of a device is suspected, a recharging mechanism (e.g., recharge-circuit) of the device is disabled in order to guard against extended unauthorized use of the device.


My question is how do they 'suspect' unauthorized use? What if it makes a mistake? Will I be able to somehow turn this feature off?
