Why are you even in this thread then if you aren't even interested?

And I buy that...

Once the device is sold they make the money they want for it. Why would they need or want to be able to unlock them? It would encourage the sales of less units directly from them if they were unlockable.

That being said there is ALWAYS a way to unlock these things, but most respecting hackers will not do it, plus for $700 each they are not even worth the time to figure it out. They are a pretty fair deal IMO.
