Apple issues a warning about future upgrades likely resulting in modified devices becoming inoperable

CUPERTINO, Calif., Sept. 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Apple has
discovered that many of the unauthorized iPhone unlocking programs
available on the Internet cause irreparable damage to the iPhone's
software, which will likely result in the modified iPhone becoming
permanently inoperable when a future Apple-supplied iPhone software update
is installed. Apple plans to release the next iPhone software update,
containing many new features including the iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store
(http://www.itunes.com), later this week. Apple strongly discourages users from
installing unauthorized unlocking programs on their iPhones. Users who make
unauthorized modifications to the software on their iPhone violate their
iPhone software license agreement and void their warranty. The permanent
inability to use an iPhone due to installing unlocking software is not
covered under the iPhone's warranty.

Which is hardly surprising, and serves the unlocking crowd just right.

  • InterDigital Inks License Deal with Apple“The deal covers various 2G and 3G cellular technologies encompassing bandwidth allocation, roaming and power efficiency controls, and most likely also includes some type of packet data coding and delivery.”. I, being a bit on the cynical side, suspect that this has just as much to do with InterDigital’s disputes with Nokia: “InterDigital is also involved in a patent dispute with Nokia over third-generation technology. The U.S. International Trade Commission is expected to start an investigation of certain Nokia 3G mobile phones based on a complaint filed by InterDigital last month.”
