According to apple store employee, 1.1.1 unlocks will be bricked in 3 months!?!
I just got back from the apple store where i purchased a new iphone in anticipation of the new unlock coming from the dev team.
anyhow, as usual the sales person says "are you using it in the US, not going to unlock it, etc"
of course i say yes
she then goes onto say that if you unlock it, it won't be functional in 3 months.
I replied, oh, there is a new update coming then?
she replies, No, its made to do that, the phone is not meant to be unlocked so once you do, it activates something inside then over the course of 3 months your phone will no longer work...
i purchased the phone anyways.
is this even possible?
Unfortunately...this isnt' the first time i've heard it from an apple CS person, the first time, the guy was a complete idiot so I took it with a grain of salt.
Has anyone else heard this?
