who cares, either enjoy the technology and the pure fun of this phone/ipod/web/mail/much more, or go get a blackberry and shut your piehole, lol. I for one get more pleasure with my iPhone then i do with my wife. Now when they come out with a female talking version then i divorce the ball and chain and marry my iPhone
Whoever wote that article should have done a little research before writing a piece on it.. heh.. It IS legal to hack your phone, you own it. it is ILLEGAL to sell a hacked phone for profit. So... Long as you don't sell it to anyone ( or make some sort of gain ie "sweet car" ) you can do whatever you want to YOUR phone legally.
But to each's own, I just decided it's more of a pain than its worth to hack the phone and having to deal with the patchs, maybe in the future when everything settles down.
