iPhone in UK

Having an iPhone locked to a network which doesn’t provide 3G connectivity, and is unable to make VoIP calls despite having good wireless networking built in, is like buying a Ferrari and finding that the only thing you can do with it is power your lawnmower. It’s nuts – and our regulators have allowed it to happen.

So sayeth the Observer, and I empathise. What’s the point of having a state of the art handset when you are only allowed to perform basic phone functions on it, because of the phone company’s insecurities?
