Apple gives European iPhone hackers a warning

Apple's unhappy. In a stark warning to everyone who's purchased and subsequently hacked an iPhone, the iconic gadget manufacturer has issued a warning which, paraphrasing massively, says your sleek  handset won't work with further upgrades. And you're not covered under their warranty either. So there.

Hack-happy iPhone users have been spotted throughout the UK smugly hugging their uber cool devices. We wonder if, when the new features are introduced, the geeks that be will find a way to install them anyway. Time will tell. In the meantime, get ready for the official launch of the iPhone in the UK on the 9th November. We've already set up camp outside our local mobile store.

The warning in full:
"Apple has discovered that many of the unauthorized iPhone unlocking programs available on the Internet cause irreparable damage to the iPhone's software, which will likely result in the modified iPhone becoming permanently inoperable when a future Apple-supplied iPhone software update is installed. Apple plans to release the next iPhone software update, containing many new features including the iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store (www.itunes.com), later this week. Apple strongly discourages users from installing unauthorized unlocking programs on their iPhones. Users who make unauthorized modifications to the software on their iPhone violate their iPhone software license agreement and void their warranty. The permanent inability to use an iPhone due to installing unlocking software is not covered under the iPhone's warranty."
