sad truth. apple has been strict about sharing it products, technology, and services, that's why its old computer models failed. If apple had dominated the computer world back then, computers would still be very expensive, no clones will exist, softwares are not interchangeable or backwards compatible. Microsoft made everything cheaper, gave us choices with computer hardwares and softwares.. and you all hate Bill.

If iphone and other companys like motorola are spying on us isnt that going against privacy laws? And i bet nokia and sony are also tracking people but like everything else is brushed aside and the uk public forget about it! Dumb or what

People loved iPhone mainly due to it's fancy interface, but nokia and SE already has some guns for them. now all i'm waiting for them is to have unveiled those: The S60 Touch and the upcoming UIQ 3.2/4 :P

This is just amazing! I wonder why Apple fanboys are so quiet about it. Would they be this quiet if Microsot were doing it? but since it's Apple... no it's not possible, or at least you gotta give them the benefit of the doubt. Shame on you Apple, and on everyone that buys products from this company.

There are civil war, tsunami, starvation, AIDS, military occupational (foreign country), cancer etc, victims all over the world not to mention education and health care even the developed countries and some, many people standing in line to buy this junk which gets outdated in 6 months (GPS, Wifi, G3.5, HSPA, video call, better camera, handwriting recognition, etc - see ETEN X800 specs etc.)

Can this people sleep well?

FAKE, that IMEI is not the same IMEI that the phone has, is just a name of a program string, that is the same in ALL the iphones.
