    I read the story and it seem very fun. Yeah, those bottom line works sometime have not idea what they are talking about when involve with law. Even freaking Apple Corp can’t do anything about their phone being unlock.

    Apple has no say in what someone does with a device one has purchased, regardless. While it voids warranties, it is not illegal. Apple can claim it is and try to do something about it, but it’s a wasted effort.

    Not to be a corporate bitch or anything….but you are violating contract laws. However, some Apple store manager geek does not have the right to confiscate the device.

    If the guy ever plugged in the device to iTunes, he agreed to an overbearing, over broad, behemoth of a contract. However, he still agreed to a contract, the type of which US courts have enforced, “click-wrap”. Apple could sue him, for breach of contract, for how much I have no idea, but they still had no right to demand the device. That’s crazy.

    Yes, I would jailbreak my iPhone if I could (it’s new, not into the tethered deal), and No I’m not a lawyer, but I know enough so you can’t illegally search my shit.

    All a JB does is void the warranty… no need for them to take your device away, even if this story is true or fake. Weird an Apple employee did that… they are really cool about things.

    This shows how naive Apple store employees are..

    They really think it is illegal for one to have a JB’ed phone. In their training, they realy was told it is illegal to do that. They personally are loyal and stick to the original iphone. The employee that HOTROD1964 met, probably NEVER heard of ‘jailbreaking’ before, so as many non-technical iphone users out there.

    While for myself, to avoid inconvenience like this, I will not talk about JB in an Apple Store. This is same as you do not talk about killing caually in a Police station, or bombing in an airport.

    They sound sound like a typical bunch of power-tripping Apple Store employees… And the attitude of the employee and the manager is spot on young stuck-up Apple employees. Probably would liked to have been a cop instead… yeah know (and hate) the type. Who the hell do they think they are?… No this real, and damn scary too, if they can do that to people. Well the cop had to go away… (he probably has enough at looking at those two gloating Apple store lover-boys playing their little game) And the utter cheek of that dumb manager. My parting words would have been “yeah my day will be even more ‘pleasant’, when I am finished reporting your bitchy ass to someone in authority, you and your colleague my friend are complete idiots!”

    I concur with Tony and Brian. Suspicious and bogus.
    Hotrod1964 needs to release the details to allow validation of this incident.

    One thing I know for sure is that AT&T will not touch, not touch a jailbroken iPhone. Even when it is to help you put on a new case. They simply pushed my phone back into my hands like my phone had a disease or something. I thought that was a little bizarre.

    This is frightening, Apple thinks they can control people or what. I think the Federal Government should pass a law that will force them to make their devices open to modifications. I am even surprised that law has not been passed. Long Live jailbreak long live Cydia,Icy and all those who care about jailbreaking!!

    Not true. hotrod1964 just wants more followers. If it were true, he would tell us which applestore. Read his past tweets, he has something against geohot. He probably upgraded to 3.1.3 and is now stuck and is trying to bad mouth geohot to push him to jailbreak 3.1.3
