If you use a third party hack or SIM card and expect support, forget it.  Apple has said its not happening and if you use a third party SIM your phone will just be a very expensive paperweight.

Did anyone actually think anything good was going to come out of this?  Hell no.  Apple is vendor locked to provide the iPhone though AT&T and the other providers for awhile, it was the only way they could get them on the shelf.  Apple should have released the iPhone with a pick your provider feature, but considering AT&T distribution was better than the Apple store numbers it doesnt surprise me.  It also would surprise me if AT&T are the ones pushing Apple to brick up hacked iPhones.
