    At the D9 conference AT&T CEO Ralph De La Vega said that users could buy a contract-free full-price iPhone if they wanted it unlocked. This has never been the case and I'm quite surprised he even thought this, as AT&T reps are told to say that it's physically impossible. Does anyone think this could lead to a change in policy and in Apple/AT&T selling full-price unlocked GSM iPhones in the future?

    with at&t being the only major GSM carrier in america, I doubt it. If t-mobile started to offering a full price unlocked iPhone that may force at&t to copy. But, now that t-mobile might be consumed by at&t who knows... i hope the deal won't go through.

    i also like the part about shared data across multiple devices. that would be great!

    He has done a bad job doing anything that resembles improving the network in any find of reasonable amount of time.... not hard to believe he has no idea what he is talking about.
