Luis' shorts Re: iPhone hacking Re: [FoRK] Thinking of taking an iPhone on an international trip?

So I called a buddy of mine who lives and works in Palo Alto and who I 
know has an iPhone (the only one I've played with)...  And it sent me to 
a scratchy, clearly analog voice mail service that required me to type 
in his number to get the right mail box to leave a message!  I called 
back twice with exactly the same results.  I left a message, with no 
reply.  Did he get it?

Wow... Uber Tech, meet the Dark Ages.
