Vodafone Germany makes trouble for iPhone

Vodafone Germany is making some trouble for T-Mobile Germany's exclusive iPhone deal, which requires iPhone buyers to commit to a two-year T-Mobile service contract. Vodafone won a temporary injunction against the carrier after claiming that the terms of the Apple deal are uncompetitive according to German law. A Hamburg court is set to hear the case in two weeks. Vodafone claimed that its aim is not to halt T-Mobile's iPhone sales, but to allow consumers to have the freedom to select their own network provider. "We believe that T-Mobile has breached a local law in Germany," a Vodafone spokesman told the BBC.
