    I think this is awesome. I just wonder how much AT&T paid to have exclusive rights for this phone.

    Obviously too much. Like the article states, unlocking is legal in the U.S. and is inevitable.

    Interesting.

    But I think hackng the code opens up violations of the DCMA. :evil:

    But mainly because anything involving technology can get forced into a DMCA case by any moron attorney. :p

    Cell phone hacking was exempted from the DMCA late last year.

    Dave Chapelle had one on stage past weekend. I have seen dozens of these around so far. Good idea but AT&T network? hmm, hmm

    I hate stupid subsidy locks on phones. Locking should be illegal. Whenever I get a new phone, the first thing I do is connect it to the computer and get the SOB unlocked. I don't like being forced to stick with one single carrier especially if you go out of country, then you would be forced to pay the rediculous international rate.

    Service providers = ass pirates

    I saw on the news that the kid traded the hacked phone for a new Nissan 350Z.

    Good job.
