Apple The internet is abuzz with the news that Apple intends to break iPhones containing third party applications. Unlocked phones are also likely to be victims of the next software update. While community reaction is generally negative, one blogger suggests sending an even stronger message to Apple by boycotting Apple on October 1. If you're running the Installer application, you may want to hold off on any iPhone firmware updates.

I have an unlocked AT&T treo and I get support from Palm for it. When I dropped it and called palm abou it they helped me and replaced it. They replaced it with an other AT&T locked phone which I had to unlock again. Palm updates it firmware and it does not have it's customers their phone may be broken and we will not support as a result and palm have thousands of third part apps for there phones. When you make a product like this you know people will want to extend it in their own way. why not make it easy for this to happen with you breaking the device when you the manufacture need to make a fix or your own improvements.

I will for ever love my treo, I await the arrival of the Linux based version from palm. Just remember 99% of the things the Iphone can do so can the treo in it's current stat. Why should I buy the iPhone again? Oh by the why it plays all of my MP3 and it even stream music from online radio it even streams video too. Oh let me stop. Don't like what they are doing stop buying them. Buy OPEN or things that are as close to OPEN as it gets.
