"It's yet another in a long series of diversions in an attempt to avoid responsibility." - Chris Knight

The court injunction awarded to Vodafone yesterday, barring T-Mobile from selling the iPhone only in a carrier locked state, has had swift effect.

T-Mobile announced today that it will sell the Apple iPhone unlocked and without a contract. The catch? €999, which is around $1,478.00 USD. Ouch!

This is breaking news, so I’m not sure what this actually means for the other cellphone carriers, and whether tech like Visual Voicemail will even work on their networks.

But to see the telcos fighting over the iPhone like a bunch of toddlers is both amusing and an interesting taste of the future, when all phones may be unlocked.
