We have some interesting news to bring you now, as it has been reported that the official carrier for the iPhone 4 in China is providing a few ‘extra’ services to customers, that Apple may not be aware of.
According to this report from Redmond Pie, China Unicom is amazingly offering customers a free jailbreak service for those who wish to purchase from them, knowing too well that customers may go on to unlock their device soon afterwards.
Furthermore, China Unicom are also offering free iPhone 4 cases to divert attention away from AntennaGate, and are also offering free installation of the 10 most popular apps from Cydia – an application which is only accessible on jailbroken handsets.
We wonder what Apple make of this. Jailbreaking is now legal in the US, and probably in China too – but it is not a good look for an official carrier to be supporting it – what do you think?
