But in these states "iPhone rebels" simply violate AT&T's contract and surf the networks of AT&T's wireless partners. "We will spot that very quickly," an AT&T spokesman insists, adding they would then "most likely" terminate that person's service. But other users simply open a P.O. Box in a different state — and hope AT&T thinks they're just roaming a lot. It's yet-another grass roots challenge to AT&T's exclusive carrier status. As one user complained, "I do not need Steve Jobs or the others in Cupertino, California deciding who my cellphone carrier should be.""

Since this goes against Einstein's special theory of relativity, you can expect a lot of people to dismiss this as rubbish."
