Great so now AT&T/Apple or whoever it is will spend tons of time for the next update focusing on fixes for the unlocked phone instead of actual upgrades to improve the phone....I betcha they'll do everything they can to stop this. You think its possible that the next software update and future ones will keep the ability to do this out?
Can't wait to hear what AT&T and Apple have planned for this
Though might be good! Sell more iPhones then pull out the big guns to screw up those people who bought the iPhone to hack it for tmobile lol. Then force them to buy another iPhone if they want service lol.
Yeah does suck but hey atleast we can have some fun reading horror stories of bricked tmobile iPhones or somethingGreat so now AT&T/Apple or whoever it is will spend tons of time for the next update focusing on fixes for the unlocked phone instead of actual upgrades to improve the phone....
Doesn't Apple get a slice of each iPlan? I wouldn't be so sure the halls of Cupertino are filled with smiles today.What's so ironic is that it's obvious that Apple secretly wanted this to happen, as they could now potentially double their sales. So in public they are screaming "Oh no! We didn't want this!", but then they all snicker and give each other high fives behind closed doors. T-Mobile is also obviously very happy.
Yes they do get a slice, I forgot about that. But I'm sure they'll make their money back with all the T-Mobile customers they will make now.Doesn't Apple get a slice of each iPlan? I wouldn't be so sure the halls of Cupertino are filled with smiles today.
You have a very good point. A shift in businesss practices would solve their problems. Then again, for the Apple Store that would be a major shift in their way of doing businesss.Yes they do get a slice, I forgot about that. But I'm sure they'll make their money back with all the T-Mobile customers they will make now.
I find it interesting that AT&T lets iPhone buyers take the iPhone home without signing a two year contract! Now T-Mobile people can just walk in, buy the iPhone, go home, hack it to pieces and then use it for the same price an AT&T customer would pay.
If AT&T were smart, they would make all iPhone buyers sign a contract before leaving the store with the iPhone, you know?
Well said. I enjoyed the blog of Geohot who said he was off to college to become a brain surgeon so he could "hack the brain".Seriously, who charges for hacks -- AT&T is going to come at them with some crazy DMCA legal power? Disgraceful members of the sub-ethical community.
Real hackers do it because they know information wants to be free...
