Apply say that’s rubbish, because about 8 companies use the name for their phones. http://www.iphone.com interestingly belongs to neither of them. Reply Donn Edwards on January 23, 2007 at 5:11 pm The iPhone is already out of date, even if it ever makes it to our shores, which I doubt. Nokia has introduced a phone that doesn’t use the voice carrier at all, only the data component, which makes the iPhone outdated. The iPhone is “locked” to a particular carrier in the USA. One wonders what will happen when the user tries international roaming on carriers that aren’t “affiliated” to the US carrier. Probably no signal. Would a “locked” phone be legal in SA? I thought SA carriers aren’t allowed locked phones. Reply Dragon on January 30, 2007 at 7:51 am A number of phones sold in the US are “locked”. But, even if they are unlocked, there are a number of services they aren’t compatible with. (See last note in the thread) Reply Submit a Comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
