    No one is forcing you to update your phone that is working perfectly fine as-is. Stop being such a baby.

    You are missing the point. I know no one is forcing me to update. I am saying if they ever update without my/our consent by whatever means!

    last time i heard somene say "Stop being such a baby" was from a kid to another kid. Me no kid.

    I would be surprised if apple forced an update onto our phones without our consent. If they do, and it bricks my phone, it will be my new mission in life to ruin their name. Never underestimate the power of one man.

    And the award for the most misunderstood statement ever goes to...

    People, please learn to read. Apple never said they would be actively bricking iPhones. They said they are not responsible if their software fatally conflicts with the unsupported unlocking software and causes your iPhone to become bricked. Legally, they're not even allowed to relock your phone, let alone brick it. They know this, and they're not dumb, so stop being such a damn sensationalist.

    Agreed. Apple didn't actually say they were planning to break our phones, they just wanted to scare people. They figure that anything they can do to slow the tide of people unlocking phones is good for their $$$ arrangement with AT&T, and what could be easier than to release a single statement to scare us?

    All they really said was "we aren't responsible if your phone breaks because of the unlock," and now people are so scared they are having paranoid fantasies of Apple purposefully breaking our phones by magically updating our phones against our will with unlock-detecting viruses!

    Using almost no effort at all (ie just a single statement), Steve has significantly slowed his iPhone unlock problem.

    This can't be said enough times:

    THERE'S NO REASON TO UPDATE TO THE NEXT FIRMWARE IF YOU THINK THAT YOUR UNLOCK IS MORE VALUABLE THAN WIFI ITUNES AND A STARBUCKS BUTTON.

    Why are we continuing to contemplate something that might happen. Remember all the speculation before simfree was released?

    Time is on our side and always will be. If Apple does something... we will just patiently wait for it to be circumvented. Those who were 100% oblivious to what was going on and one day they woke up and iPhone was unlocked had it easy. They didn't get worried... They didn't create "what if" situations and they didn't get angry and what could and might happen...

    I say lets wait and see what happens before everyones feathers get ruffled. I am sure that there will be a fix if something is broke. For those who must have 1.1.1 right away, they know what the ramifications could be.

    My phone works awesome... knock on wood. I can't see Apple introducing anything that I would truly require and by the time the dust settles, other manufacturers will be more competitive and I will jump; boy will I jump.

    Apple not looking to 'proactively disable' unlocked iPhones

    Posted Sep 25th 2007 1:39PM by Darren Murph
    Filed under: Cellphones
    Shortly after Apple released a brief statement yesterday regarding iPhone modifications and their impacts on warranties, the firm's senior vice president of worldwide product marketing has stepped up to clarify a few issues. In a recent interview, Phil Schiller was quoted as saying that the upcoming software update "has nothing to do with proactively disabling a phone that is unlocked or hacked." Furthermore, he added that it was "unfortunate that some programs have caused damage to the iPhone software," but he noted that "Apple could not be responsible for... those consequences." All in all, it doesn't sound like Apple is changing its stance, but it seems safe to say that Cupertino won't be listening to any crying should subsequent updates render your hacked iPhone useless.

    Cool

    None of us have any real clue as to Apple's intentions. What we can assume is:

    1) Apple must APPEAR to be concerned about unlocks or their deal w/ AT&T is in jeopardy.

    2) Apple has always liked more control than other companies, even Microsoft.

    3) Apple has some obstacles to overcome in some European countries where locked phones are illegal.

    4) Apple may be many things, but stupid isn't on the list.

    So, my personal thoughts are:

    1) Apple cares very little about unlocked phones, as they know that 90% of those phones would never have been sold w/out an unlock.

    2) All contracts have "out" clauses. It may be that Apple wants to gather as many dollars as it can from it's cell partners for as long as they can - and then they'll find a way to bail on them.

    3) I'm not even gonna connect my phone to my computer until I know something.

    Actually, I don't really care about Apple's intentions nor if the update will brick my phone or not (I understand it is my option to update or not). But to agree in part with the original post, we bought a working product and if the applications in the phone for whatever reason in the future decide to check for updates (say you can't access Google Maps or youToube) and won't work if we stay in 1.0.2, then they're actively stopping our property from working as it did when we bought it!
