There's a healthy business over here in getting phones unlocked, as many people have 2 or 3 SIMs to take advantage of different deals at different times of day, weekends, calling landlines etc. The point I'm making is that Apple isn't doing anything different from all the other phone manufacturers, it's SOP.<br><br>- padmavyuha<br><br>[color:purple]A lopsided man runs best along the little side-hills of success<br>- Frank Moore Colby</font color=purple>
