Looks like Apple is intensifying its effort to limit the (financial) damage it could possibly incur via unlocked iPhones by instituting a credit card-only policy for whoever wants to pick up an iPhone. This move is almost a surefire way to guarantee supply for the holidays as well as frustrate potential resellers. Part of this deal includes a two iPhone limit per customer at Apple stores, although it remains to be seen whether this policy is applied to AT&T stores as well. No idea on how long this restriction will last though – hopefully not until Apple’s deal with AT&T runs out. Does this draconian measure that curbs your degree of freedom affect your feelings for Apple on the whole? Will it make you turn towards other touchscreen-based devices instead?
