*nods* Fully true, just like currently with CDMA...sure you can unlock the phone...but its completely useless to do so.

CDMA carriers have their ESN's their phone numbers. So If you tried to activate a Verizon Phone on would not work...because Verizon's ESN numbers are not available in Sprint's pool. The same is true the other way around.

Since both companies agreed to perma-lock the iPhone, they can legally do so. Not like its gonna hurt either company since they singed a "multi-year" exclusive contract.

Most average "multi-year" contracts between companies run between 5-10 years.
