    Apple is a hypocrit and so is Steve Jobs. I spend around 2000 USD a year in the iTunes shop, yes, I really like it and I'm happy I can use it as a german citizen because a US friend of mine signed up for me and pays the bills (he gets the money back of course).
    IF Apple would be very serious about iPhone unlocks, they would block non-AT&T iPhones from accessing iTunes, there are various methods how they could do that.
    Of course they don't want to p.ss off customers because if they would really do that, I would probably turn my back on Apple and never ever buy a product from them again.

    Still: I'm afraid this is going to happen sooner or late because what many people don't know is the fact, that the new FW 1.1.1 is actually THE new firmware which will keep them running for the next couple months AT LEAST. Of course there will be updates and mods but basically, this is it. Meaning: it will be much easier for us to find a fast solution to jailbreak, unlock, etc. This is why I think that iTunes, the software, will play a huge role in controlling unlocked iPhones in the near future. I hope I'm wrong but I think this is the only way it is going to work for Apple, as sad as this may be.

    they can't force us to update itunes or firmware presumably if the old software is working for us and you tick do not look for updates we will be able to keep using it untill the next phone we get. my last phone never had any updates at all , and only needed to be reflashed once in its life for a problem it had. I personally think 1.0.2 is all I will ever need, and if they were going to update the iphone with cut and paste , landscape email and sms , and bluetooth music then they would of already. with the new iphone due as soon as six months I think new updates will become less frequent and probably contain less extras. The only new stuff apple ever added was features that make them more money such as ringtones and wifi itunes, if these money making apps are all thats on offer from updates I can do without them. I bet the same will happen if apple allows apps to be added, you will have to pay apple for them, and it will all be another way for them to make more cash.

    Well... 3 months.... im thinking... maybe Dev Team will have a solution then.... IF they find something.... the thing is Im pretty sure they won't.... because there si NOTHING... They will be preparing a 4ever unlock...

    Apple is not spending time or money in a bomb that will make people mad at them... ONE thing is ATT and another is APPLE. ATT would be mad, but I dont think apple is mad about unlocking!!!! they are SOOOOO happy!!! they are selling more iPhones than ever all over the world!!! they dont want people to lock them!! they want peopel to buy ringtones and music from iTunes! ATT sure is mad, but Apple doesnt really care! They are making a lot of money! a lot more! People all over the world want them in their pockets and im sure they are not going to avoid that (not in public of course!)... in fact.... I think unlocking a 1.1.1 is way easyer than before, dont you get it? Now everybody has their IMEI even with the crack! its way easyer now and unlock software is better thanks to Apple!

    3 Months... In 3 months iPhones will be available in more countries so I'm pretty sure Apple wants to do exactly the oposite, they are willing to sell unlocked phones by then.

    This is just a strategy that came from Apple to scare people but its totally BS. keep buying and unlocking and calling by any carrier you want around the world, apple is very happy about this, they dont care people unlocking theur phones, just a little issue against their partner ATT, but that partnsership is not forever.

    Don't see this as a client, you have to get in their shoes. MONEY, SALES, MUSIC, IPHONES, WORLDWIDE, HUNGRY! MORE MONEY! just kidding.

    Apple is thinking like Microsoft. In one month, if you do not activate to Windows Vista, your Operating System will stop working unexpectingly. LOL We showed them. Its been 8 Months now. Still running.

    Apple store idiots always think they are genius just because they work in "Genius Bar".
    Definition of Genius Bar: It's a bar (oh yes) where genius got barred (only idiots remain).

    Well, the world will be so much better if Apple is as ethical as Microsoft.
    At least Microsoft is telling the truth - if you don't activate Vista in 30 days, it will lock up. Crack is another story, thought.

    As long as we:
    1. don't update iTunes
    2. don't update iPhone firmware
    3. to be 100% safe, disconnect from internet when sync to iTunes
    our unlocked iPhone will always work, just without the new features. but who need the new features from Apple? my 1.1.1 has the same, if not more features than 1.1.2. So bottom of the line is we need to support those developers who come out with great software for us. Please donate to them, I do
    CH iPhone 3G + pwned + ultrasn0w = iOS 4.0 unlocked
