Re: Export Business
The reason I suggest region locks is to enforce export control laws. There are countries where the iPhone is not sold and each country has its own regulations regarding mobile devices and the devices sold for that country are tailored to the country in which they are sold.
The main reason I suggested region locks is to crack down on the black market for stolen mobile devices and like the OP said that there is a huge issue with stolen mobile devices being sold overseas.
I've experienced ImOn (when they were McLeod USA), Mediacom, Comcast, and Time Warner and I currently have DirecTV. They are much better than broadcast TV.
I have not and will not cut the cord.
