iPhone Dev Team issues statement in response to Apple

iPhone Dev Team issues statement in response to Apple

There were several posts (like the one from Jason) on Apple's statement posted yesterday regarding hacked iPhones. Everyone who hacked their iPhone, like I did, shouldn't be a bit surprised by this statement and if you are then you shouldn't have hacked your iPhone in the first place. Hacking the iPhone carries a known risk and I am sure Apple felt some pressure from AT&T to make such a statement. I personally am saving myself US$50/month by using my iPhone on T-Mobile and dropping AT&T, but I also made the decision before I hacked it that I can live with the iPhone the way it is now along with the 3rd party applications I have loaded on it. The iPhone Dev Team who enabled us to SIM unlock our iPhones issued a statement today in response to Apple's statement.
