    Yep, looks like they found a way around the law prohibiting locking down cellphones.

    Here are the countries for those who don't want to click the link: Austria, Belgium, the Dominican Republic, Egypt, Jordan, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Switzerland and Orange’s African markets

    I believe Austria was also on T-Mobile's list???

    There are 2 Belgium cases that have appealed up to the European Court of Justice on whether Belgium's anti-bundling law is against EU's consumer protection laws (the cases will be heard on June 17, 2008).

    Meanwhile, Belgium is thinking about repealing the anti-bundling law.

    Looks like Orange is betting that Beglium is going to kill their existing laws.
