I hope that Apple will sell the Iphone on line and they wont oblige people to sign a contract to buy it, Please Job, make the world happy not only AT&T, FREE THE IPHONE.

I was just reading this: www.freetheiphone.org and please visit also, www.appleiphonelawsuit.com/videos.html it is serious, maybe if all costumers round the world or at least in US fight and make a lawsuit to apple it will be free, it is not normal that they give to only ATT this exclusivity. LET'S FIGHT

I think its AT&T that is the one trying to put an end to unlocking the iPhone not Apple....Apple get paid rather the person sign contracts or not.... this "required contract" looks & smells like a law suit waiting to happen. I mean isn’t the iPhone a multi-device? Can’t the iPhone be purchased to only be used for the WiFi, iPod, video, games, weather, stock, and GPS? I think someone should look into this and screw AT&T for trying to screw with us (the customers)…..

At the begining apple will make the phone unhackable and then the marketing strategy will begin again, I am not worried about it, in one month after people have bought huge quantities it will bought in apple again but without forcing people to make a contract, that would be suicidal for apple who sold about 6 millions iphones till now, so I think everything is calculated.

Im pretty sure that is not happening, it would be suicide for Apple, and a lost war on taking over the cell phone war around the globe. Everybody want´s an iphone and the few who are still skeptical about it who bought the ·3G blackberry are probably biting their balls right now cause of the upgrades the new iphone brings will eat it for breakfast. So if they are blocking the unlocking, they will loose ground for sure

good on apple! i dont know why they didn't do this in the first place and forced people to buy the contract along with the phone. when cellphones first came out, they cost about $500 and still with a contract! so i dont get why people are crying now about spending lots of money on new contracts! so well done and i fully back this decision! (probably not gonna happen tho)

Success has gone to Steve's and Apple's heads. Its only a phone for God's sake, get over yourselves. Maybe its time Apple got knocked down a peg or two. And this from a long time Apple user.
