Considering the great lengths they go through to try and keep the phone carrier locked, I see no point in it. Maybe there is some yet to be revealed secret that will clear it all up? Dun.. dun.. dun...

think $19.99 is bad, this guy is selling a paperclip and black tape for $499, although, if you buy this paperclip, he is giving the 10% of the proceeds to charity... lol.

Maybe they are expecting a lot of battery failures so people will need to eject their cards before sending in for new one.
There's no dock with the new iphone???????

No, no dock.

Doesn't bother me though, the dock wasn't all that great on the first iPhone. It worked fine for awhile, then it would intermittently stop recognizing the phone was plugged in. After having a few syncs get screwed up halfway through, I cut the dock out of the equation and just plugged straight in.

Never had a problem after that.

It must be that some intern at apple had screwed up their office supply order and ordered 10,000 boxes of paper clips instead of 10. His new job is to put one paper clip in each box as it goes by on the production line. Gosh I hate it when the keys on my keyboard sticks :p

Maybe for the next gen iphone there will be a software-based auto-eject of the SIM complete with tiny parachute (single use only, of course).

Another thought is that you're not intended to use it on your own phone, but when you jack other people's phones you can use the tool to 'be nice' and leave them their SIM and just take the phone?

oh wait - the SIM is not going to be user replaceable! Duh - you take your iPhone to the repair center, pay $74.99 - give them the SIM ejector tool and then rent another iPhone for 3 days while they eject your SIM! Now why didn't I see that before? :rolleyes:

Aloha tkane2712,

I wonder if this is going to be a trend - every time a new iPhone comes out, it requires a new dock. or some such nonsense like that. It really is nonsense to charge $50 for an item included with the previous version of the same product. Then again, I may just be bitter about it. :D

if you buy a universal(sp?) dock, then you only need the mold for the product. but it is still not said wether or not the 3g will fit.

That is why Bad Ash joked (or maybe was not joking depending on his power tool experience) about using a Dremel tool to change the shape of the iPhone Dock.
