Proposed class action settlement would let you unlock almost any AT&T handset -- except the iPhone

Proposed class action settlement would let you unlock almost any AT&T handset -- except the iPhone: "

So the good news is that a class action lawsuit out in Cali is on the cusp of coming to a resolution, and the resolution will require AT&T to provide an unlock code for just about any phone it has sold since March 12, 1999 -- in other words, you'll be able to take the phone and use it on any GSM carrier of your choice. We say "just about" because there's one big exception -- any phone for which AT&T secured an exclusivity period of at least ten months -- which naturally includes the iPhone (in fact, it's called out by name in the settlement). There are some stipulations, too; if you're postpaid, you have to have been a customer for at least 90 days, and even devices with exclusivity periods of less than ten months can't be unlocked until the period is over (which admittedly makes good sense). Taking a Backflip somewhere else might not seem like a particularly appealing option, but who knows -- maybe you're a T-Mobile customer with a thing for backward hinges and a disdain for 3G.

El 17% de los clientes de Verizon están esperando el iPhone CDMA

El 17% de los clientes de Verizon están esperando el iPhone CDMA: "


En una nueva investigación realizada por una especialista de la firma financiera Morgan Stanley, de nombre Katy Huberty, sería un gran negocio para Apple fabricar un iPhone con tecnología CDMA dado que el 16.8% de los clientes de Verizon están deseosos de comprar un iPhone compatible con la red de la operadora más popular en Estados Unidos.


Si las cifras de Huberty son correctas, las ventas del iPhone se incrementarían en aproximadamente 8 millones de unidades. También especuló que, si Apple presenta un iPhone para la red de Verizon, es casi un hecho que las acciones de la compañía llegarían a un precio que rondaría los $310 Dólares.


En cuanto al comportamiento del mercado del iPhone durante 2011, según Huberty, el iPhone venderá poco más de 61 millones de unidades, es decir, un 25% más de lo que el resto de las predicciones indica. Sobre todo, porque es muy probable que el iPhone 3GS de 16 GB sea vendido en $99 Dólares a partir de que el nuevo iPone llegue al mercado.
