Submission + - German court rules iPhone locking legal (

l-ascorbic writes: Vodafone has had its temporary injunction against T-Mobile overturned by a court in Germany. Two weeks ago, the British mobile network won an injunction forcing T-Mobile to sell iPhones that were not locked to its network. They argued that it was an anti-competitive practice, and sought to force the German network to permanently allow the use of the phones on other networks. After the injunction was granted, T-Mobile offered the unlocked phones for 999 euros ($1477), and these will now be withdrawn from sale.
