In another thread, I mentioned that on my iphone box under footnote #1 there is the following text: "1) Credit check required;must be 18 years or older. Service plan with At&t required for cellular network capabilities on expiration of initial new two-year agreement..." This iphone is a replacement and the box before had the same text, but another member claims that it doesn't exist on his box. Does it on yours? mine is a week 38 unit and the one before was week 37. So Apple is saying that this phone needs to be forever locked to ATT to function as a phone. I assume that the the rest of its functionality will continue to work without being stuck with ATT after the contract period. To me, this is really outrageous and a reason that I will never lock my phone to ATT, no matter what great updates Apple provides in the future. I was toying with the idea to do it just to not have to deal with the frustration of not being able to update and feel nervous about it all, but not after noticing this text.
