    Apple is clearly in the wrong here indeed.

    Just read the article here: http://www.reddit.com/r/technology/comments/1whesf/apple_faces_fines_for_blockin g_lte_on_the_iphone/

    and the comments below it...

     

    The most upvoted comment is:

    This is silly, if you buy the phone outright and its compatible with another carrier, you should be able to use it and its LTE network. Having Apple purposely block it, in order to protect the original carrier will indeed come to bite them in the ***.

     

     

    And in the article the most upvoted comment:

    But but but.. No excuses if this true I hope they get fined.

     

     

    KiltedTim can live all he want in his Oh Almighty Apple dream world, but that doesn't mean he should be so opposed to people who bring negative things of Apple into the light.

    Your opinion of who is or is not "in the wrong" is completely irrelevent. It has absolutely NO bearing on the technical realities. Call a lawyer if you think you've been wronged. And try reading this: https://discussions.apple.com/___sbsstatic___/apple/tutorial/tou.html

    debating with belgians really isn't worth the effort

    Wow, really?

    We TRY to debate with you two, but all you and KiltedTim do is point to the TOS and trying to shut us up.

    If this whole 33 page thread wasn't allowed, it would have been removed a long time ago. By the Hosts.

     

    Also, IF they remove it, I will gladly send a news item to well known tech sites. They will LOVE the fact the Oh So Consumer Friendly Apple shut down a 33 page thread on their forums discussing a situation that has recently gotten into the news (on tech sites).

     

    We may discuss all we want in this thread.

    This is not a place for "debate". It's a technical support forum. As you've been told repeatedly, discussions of Apple policies are prohibited by the TOS.

    Are you familiar with the term backseat moderating?

    Are you familiar with the term troll?

  • Arco123 Level 1 (0 points)

    In Internet slang, a troll (/ˈtrl/, /ˈtrɒl/) is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people,[1] by posting inflammatory,[2] extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a forum, chat room, or blog), either accidentally[3][4] or with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[5] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.[6]

     

    This is sourcing from Wikipedia, and the only one that is currently fitting in this are you.

  • KiltedTim Level 9 (50,305 points)

    Good for you. You've learned to read. Now try reading the TOS. YOU are the one who is violating the terms for these forums. Deal with it. Continuing to whine will not alter reality.

    Can't you start another tread where you cut put your unusefull posts?

    Please stop!

  • KiltedTim Level 9 (50,305 points)

    What is it with you people? Are you that dense? READ THE TOS.

  • Arco123 Level 1 (0 points)

    Writing indicates that I can read as well.

     

    I've got a news-flash for you: your arrogance is making a fool out of yourself.

    1. Be polite. Everyone should feel comfortable reading Submissions and participating in discussions. Apple will not tolerate flames or other inappropriate statements, material, or links. Most often, a "flame" is simply a statement that is taunting and thus arbitrarily inflammatory. However, this also includes those which are libelous, defamatory, indecent, harmful, harassing, intimidating, threatening, hateful, objectionable, discriminatory, abusive, vulgar, obscene, pornographic, sexually explicit, or offensive in a sexual, racial, cultural, or ethnic context.
    2. Post constructive comments and questions. Unless otherwise noted, your Submission should either be a technical support question or a technical support answer. Constructive feedback about product features is welcome as well. If your Submission contains the phrase "I'm sorry for the rant, but…" you are likely in violation of this policy.

     

    I have read the policy and Apple doesn't disallow these kinds of discussions.

     

    The only person that is not abiding the terms of service are you, kind sir.

    Is that it? Is that really all you have to say on this topic? You sound like a stuck record...

     

    Look, if you don't like this thread or what's being said in it, then just ignore it, go and read something that interests you more, about which you have something meaningful to say. But this perpetual "read the TOS" line is just a tad pathetic...

  • Arco123 Level 1 (0 points)

    You shouldn't really be minding him; there's no phrase in the terms of service that indicates it's disallowed to have this discussion.

     

    Even more, if it were against the rules it would have been removed before, this thread has been moderated many times before as well.
