I think Apple needs to sell the iphone for other carriers and allow it to be unlocked. AT&Ts rates are ridiculously high. I wanted to get an iphone so bad, but I absolutely refused to be locked into AT&T, so I went with T-Mobile. I was not about to risk a $400 investment and try to hack it so I could get it unlocked. I think Apples exclusivity with ATT is a bad move. They could open the doors up to a much wider audience if they allowed the phone to be unlocked!
