well the article does say that the guy who traded it is the co-founder of Certicell, so maybe now that he has it he can start tugging on Macs leg asking for the iPhone to be used by different wireless companies, just a thought.

It was, as borat said, for the right to distribute the unlocked version, and the ways to unlock it.

That kid spent over 500 hours working on that iPhone to crack the code. Not lucky, persistent.
