I agree... I could have purchased an LG ENV2 or something similar from VZW and sued them because I couldn't take it and its functions directly to another carrier.

People 'could' actually unlock an iPhone and use it on T-Mobile or another mom-pop (Cinci Bell?) wirless. I personally would expect it to be thrown out.

If its 'an app' specific reason (i.e. this app is only on the iPhone), blame it on the application vendor - they can make apps for other devices, but chose not to.

As far as AT&T goes - Apple made the phone that supports GSM 850/900/1800/1900 + UMTS/HSPDPA 850/1900/2100. It happens that carriers in the USA do not support this technology - with the exception of T-Mobile, which ONLY supports GSM 1900 on the iPhone.
