    I for one kinda like this. All I would want out of itwould be the ability to legitimately unlock the phone. I never realized just how much I wanted an unlock until I was in Afghanistan, and AT&T sent me a text saying data cost 19.95 per megabyte or so. At the time, there was no unlock for the 05.12.01 baseband, so I went to a French store there and bought a factory unlocked 3gs. It cost me about a thousand bucks, plus about 500 bucks worth of prepaid cards on the local carrier just to have phone & GPRS service. BUT, at 19.95/MB & 4.95/min for voice, that fifteen hundred spent was equivalent to 30 thousand plus if I had used the same amount of data & voice with my AT&T sim. So the ability to legitimately unlock the phone once the original contract is up would be very welcome. I could care less about any money they may be trying to get out of it.
    Legitimate gripe here. They constant advertise it as being workd ready, when it truly is not.

    For someone with "2 posts" you really don't have the right to be demanding ****!
    Yeah I only have a few myself, but I've been apart of this community since the original iPhone. Never have I demanded a jailbreak...it will come out when it's ready to be released...now go back to reading multiple blogs about random dumb *** people having the release and beg them for it like the rest of the noobs! GOOD LUCK! Oh and one more thing...assholes like you keep hijacking EVERY thread on the net about this damn jailbreak, shutup and go start a blog for you and your impaitient cohorts. People like you deserve someone to handover a faux JB and it bricks your ****.

    And on topic: yes people will sue for anything now, we as Americans are lazy money hungry bastards with a ridiculous sense of "entitlement". If I have pissed you off...good

    We all need to get over ourselves!
    Some good points... Only thing is this site is not based on a hirache. Everyone has a right to post. This site isn't run from Iran or north Korea.

    Or another option. Take them to court and win a victory for consumers everywhere. "Whiny b!tches" Made this country great you freaking idiot. Independence, civil rights, suffrage, environmental and consumer protections yup all "Whiny B!ches".

    Todays young wipper-snappers have little knowledge of the meaning of true freedom (including freedom from monopolistic predators like Apple and AT&T). Their eyes are closed believing Apple can do any darn thing Apple wants to do! NOT!!

    One day you will thank us for standing up and saying --- enough is enough!!

    If you don't agree .... that's ok too. We're also fighting for your right to disagree

    Just give me the JB!
    Give me got his neck broke trying to **** a Billy goat... Lol.

    Go get it there are a couple of sites out there that you can pay for it. Or if u need an unlock go to Germany or UK. Unlocked mine from tmobile Germany.

    Oh and for thoes that want to know. Tmobile in the US is a lot slower that ATT. Can't say crap for verizon (damn CDMA crap.. Sooo glad Europe did away from that crap yrs ago. (for the most part)).

    Amazing isn't it? Can we sue T-Mobile cause I can't get a Eric Clapton My Touch on Boost mobile too?
    you can't do that, because t-mobile will give you the unlock code fot that phone if you request it, so they do give you the choice to use it with other carriers

    Thank you for your service to our country... Lmao.

    Well I'm no wipper snapper at 41 yrs old. But I can say I don't believe in monitory payout. That is crap IMO. I do however believe that once a certain percentage or the contract Is up ther should unlock the phone. The deal to lock is for the cheaper price. Once the contract is fulfilled it should be unlocked.. Period dot!!!!! :-). Bought all my iPhones except the 1st and last in Germany. All were factory unlocked. Difference is in Europe there is a specific law. In the US there isn't. Perhaps there should be.

    It seems to me that most are missing the point that if this lawsuit is successful, it will allow for a competitive market place. Which in turn will cause lower pricing for iphone plans. This will benefit all consumers greatly.

    This we agree 100%.

    We could hope for a complete about-face, the it's more likely the best we could ever get is a small change in Apple's/AT&T's T&C (or whatever acronyms they use now).

    Keep your money, give me freedom (aka: carrier freedom)

    Will it? I'm not too sure, as here in Europe all phones can be operator unlocked after 6 months. This has been the case for 2 years and prices seem to be going up, even though the iPhone is available on at least 4 networks.

    What do you pay in the US? My new iPhone 4 tariff = 55 ($69/46) for unlimited calls to any French landline/mobile, wifi, data, sms, mms 24/7/365 and Orange TV (60 channels), Orange Maps (like TomTom but worse), Orange Sport, etc. for 12 month contract. 61 if you include the insurance against theft, accidental damage, loss(?!), water damage.

    So in other words the lawsuit doesn't mean a damn thing now as will be the same for pretty much any other lawsuit filed against Apple. Sweet.

    This is nothing more than an attempt for lawyers to make money. The lawyers will make tens of millions, but all we will get (if we're lucky) is an official unlock tool for iPhones out of contract.

    "consumers everywhere" have a choice to go to AT&T and get an iPhone, go online and pay out the ***** for an unlocked iPhone or don't get an iPhone.

    And you realize you just compared independence and civil rights to getting you iPhone unlocked right? And I'm the freaking idiot.

    This really means nothing for current iPhone users, maybe one day we will be able to call and have them unlocked like any other phone, and maybe we will all get a $20 credit on our accounts, but really, thats it.

    Spinning things like this is stupid at best...

    This is Apple's product, they made it, patented it, everything! if they want to use AT&T only than they can. What's next, are Sprint and HTC going to be in a lawsuit because of the EVO. A lot of phones are exclusive to their carriers. Oh that's right, it's an Apple product. Lets punish apple and AT&T for doing what everybody does. Gosh, what the hell is wrong here?

    How does this compare to HTC and the Sprint EVO? All of the 4 major carriers in the US have android based phones so there are options for android phones.

    This is 100% correct. Sanyo has been exclusive to Sprint in the US for at least 8 years. probably more. No one is going after either of them because millions of people arent lining up at 2AM to PRE-ORDER a flip camera phone.
