PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Well, this is fascinating. There have been rumours going around for a while now that Apple is working with Gemalto on an integrated sim card, allowing customers to choose their own carrier and then activate the phone through Apple. European mobile phone carriers aren't particularly pleased with this.

This move by Apple would threaten the very core of the carrier's business model

I don't understand this, can someone explain this?

How is the SIM card being provided by the carrier vs Apple changing anything.
(Other then a customer likely to stick with same carrier since they have their SIM already.)
