When Technology Fails, Try Process: iPhone instore activation

Since the iPhone OS wasn’t up to the task of thwarting the haxor community, Apple is taking (being forced by AT&T?) the step of forcing customers to activate AT&T service at purchase.

Given the length of time it took to unlock the iPhone I (3 months) it appears Apple did a decent job attempting to secure the iPhone SIM. Despite that, someone at either Apple or AT&T is convinced they lost out on revenue from iPhones that were purchased and then unlocked and used on other carriers or even as wifi only devices.
