    Nice idea posting a picture

    Id really love to see this go into a court room in the UK with a good lawyer, there are so many things morally wrong about the hole unlocking process not to mention the locked to one network cr@p.

    I wish I had the time and the money to try myself lol

    also first sentence on the contract is. 'This is a contract to buy an iphone.' it does not say this is a contract to buy an iphone with an 18month contract.

    phew for that! been thinking about this all week as im planning to get one here in the UK from an Apple Shop instead of O2 shop or Carphone Warehouse. Just wanted to be definate i buy it and like 2 months later poof! its locked n shit. but after reading this, its calmed me down alot!

    So overall shall i buy it from APPLE SHOP or O2 SHOP or CARPHONE WAREHOUSE? just asking if there are any differences or any advantage/disadvantage from buying from any of them. By the way when i do get it, i will be bypassing activation n using my own O2 pay and go sim card.

    Thanks for all help!

    There is no difference from either.
    If you went to an Apple , you would have people who knew what they were doing.
    ON the other hand the Apple sales people would go on about activation and stuff like that as they know what they are on about.
    When i bought mine at carphone warehouse, the sales person didn't even know how to process the sale and so asked the manager! lol
    The staff then explained that to activate the iphone i must go to itunes.co.uk and then enter the serial number lol

    haha! why did you buy it from the carphone warehouse then anyway? surely Apple shop seems the best option then?

    I don't think they can block it. I was also stupid enough to buy an iPhone from these pigs, and i also had to sign a paper saying that i had to register the phone within the week. The last day was last wednesday, the 12th. And my iPhone is still running, waiting for its TurboSim...
    I signed one of those bits of paper when I bought mine at CPW. Funny things was the guy got so confused processing the sale that I walked out with the whole document (they're supposed to keep the top half with your signature on)! So if anyone tries blocking my phone I'll definitely be challenging them to come up with any evidence of this contract I've entered into

    In answer to the question of why buy at CPW rather than O2 or Apple store, it was exactly because I knew they wouldn't have a clue what they were doing, so I didn't expect to get in to any long conversations with them. Go in this Saturday afternoon when they'll be so busy it'll be amazing if they even remember to ask you to pay :p

    I live in Wales and there is NO APPLES SHOPS IN WALES AT ALL!
    I knew excatly what to say, i said i would activate at home blah blah.
    The staff were clueless about the whole process, which kinda worked to my advantage:p

    Are they ment to have the bit you signed...?
    They gave me mine...!
    LOL! THEY WERE CLUELESS!
    It was only a small carphone warehouse though so they probarly had few Iphone sales.

    when i bought mine, from apple regent street on nov 10th (day after launch) the apple guy behind the desk just said 'do you know about activation'
    i said 'yes'
    'here you go, have your iphone'

    another reason to buy from apple is you (at least you did) get one months free one-to-one help at a genius bar if you wanted it
    of course, i didnt as i would have a hacked iphone!!
