Airtel Claims - Even Most Deadly Hackers Can’t Crack Its iPhone 3g

other networks then beware. Techies at Airtel are claiming that even the most deadly hackers on the planet won’t be able to crack the codes that support the iPhone’s Airtel applications with rival company SIMs.

And, even if a hacker manages to make voice calls from an Airtel iPhone using the SIM of a rival GSM operator, he would be denied access to both exclusive icons – ‘Airtel Live’ and ‘Airtel Apps’– which are gateways to the full spectrum of Airtel applications built into the iconic gizmo.

Airtel this is just plain old news, every one knows that if they jailbreak their iPhone, it eventually looses features given by the provider. And on the prices you are selling it, you won’t find many customers to worry about anyhow.
