I caught a whiff of information regarding how Apple has a chunk of code in their iPhones and iPads that allow it to work without on different networks without it being activated WITH that network. The code is evidently removed just before launch of the product…hmmmm
Update: Nov, 2010 – I had to call Verizon for an issue I was having with my Blackberry. I brought this up and he immediately said it’s not true. I even told him about the above code… He responded “I know nothing about THAT, but I can guarantee you we are not going with iPhone”.
Update June 30th, 2011 – Well we all KNOW how this turns out ;0)
