An anonymous reader writes: InfoWeek blogger Alex Wolfe reports that some iPhone users are mad as heck at Apple for bricking up their device in response to non-Apple-authorized software downloaded., and they're talking about filing a class action lawsuit. In a discussion thread on Apple's own iPhone forum, one user posts that he's "Seeking respondents for possible class action lawsuit against Apple Inc. relating to refusal to service iPhones and related accessories under warranty." He's talking about users who've had their phones bricked up by Apple after they've unlocked them or installed third-party apps. Some who've replied to the post agree that Apple is being unbelievably arrogant and is ripe for legal action. But others say Cupertino is well within its rights to control its own device. What do you think? Does this mean if you don't like what Apple does you're forced to buy a Treo?
