It follows a flurry of hacks claiming to unlock the phone, which is tied into the US AT&T network and O2 in the UK.

Apple has denied that it is "doing anything proactively to disable iPhones that have been hacked or unlocked".

I think it so fookin cheeky of Apple, the robbing barstard, you pay £269 for a phone with an 18 month contract, you should be allowed to do what the fook you want with it, if you want to use it on another network, who are Apple to say you cant!!! Its not their hard earned cash that you are spending. I mean come on, they shouldnt be selling the phone if in reality the phone remains their property (if they are dictating what you can and cannot do with it once you have bought it, it may as well be their property).

Well to be honest matey, I can understand Apple and o2/AT&T locking the phones, because o2 and AT&T have paid millions to Apple for exclusivity deals. So this is quite fair.

But since the unlocking of phones is not illegal, if someone wants to go to the trouble of unlocking it, it should not be Apple's place to prevent them from using it in the future.

If its unlocked, its fair enough. Its just Apple trying to play the "big i am" and costing users more money if they find theirs is broken, no doubt Apple will offer to repair them for people... at cost of course.

Its not that, thats fair enough again as you accept they wont cover it under warranty. This is standard with all mobile phone manufacturers.

The problem is, they are saying that it will not work in the future with software updates etc...
