    With Apple wanting the iPhone 3G to be activated in store only, what does this mean for the hackers unlocking and jailbreaking it?​


    Is it going to be harder for them to find a way to get in and hack the iPhone? How do they do it?​

    APPLE Is not the one wanting activation. AT&T is. Get your facts straight.


    AT&T:

    • All
    • Trouble
    • &
    • Time wasting.

    We still aren't sure that you have to activate at the store right. Their was a thread stating that they might make us sign the contract and get it unlocked, but we could still activate it from iTunes.

    With AT&T requiring an in-store activation of a minimum 2-year plan, this means that unlocking would be a thing of the past, as every 3G iPhone to leave the store would be on a 2-year contract. But, I'm sure that there will be some way that the 3G iPhone will find its way out of the store without a contract, such as the article Teslanaut posted about the in-store activation not working, allowing you to take it home to activate it.
