T-Mobile blockerar iPhone från sitt nät


For T-Mobile customers, jailbreaking an iPhone had been a particularly juicy option. Users with unlocked iPhones had been able to sign up for the Sidekick data plan, which allows for unlimited texting and data for just a $1 a day. Needless to say, that’s a vastly preferable price to AT&T’s.

Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end, and T-Mobile has unceremoniously shut-off access to the Sidekick data plan for iPhone users. The way they have gone about this is by shutting off access to everyone on port 80. This potentially leaves other users on non-Sidekick phones cut out as well, although iPhone users were clearly being targeted.

Två saker jag vill veta: vem pressade T-Mobile till detta, och hur mycket fick T-Mobile för att gå med på det?
