Unfortunately I have had issues with the lapdock freezing the cursor occasionally and nothing you can do about it except undock. Yes I know about double-tapping the touch pad to turn the pad on & off - it's not that. Also it's a PITA to scroll on any browser I've tried - you're better off using the arrow keys.
    Yes, the webtop has its laggy moments... Good idea, and really cool most of the time, but it still needs a little work.

    This is what my main question concerns. Is violating your TOS (aka, breaching contract) actually illegal (as in, breaking a legitimate LAW in our legal system)? Or is it simply grounds to terminate your contract and services? I've yet to come up with a definitive answer.

    Either way, it's not a good course of action. It can and probably will have unpleasant consequences.

    Semantics. No, the police probably won't bust down your door and haul you away in handcuffs but, yes, you are violating a legally enforceable law. It's called contract law and is valid in a court of law, albeit it would likely never get to that point.

    Breach of contract... as Carl says, it would probably not come to court. AT&T would probably not terminate your service, but they would probably be within their rights to remove any promotional pricing, subsidation, etc.

    Thanks guys. With all the hooplah surrounding illegal song downloads (and the outrageous consequences that have arisen), I was curious as to which direction the phone companies were moving in. Especially since jailbreaking/rooting got the legal thumbs up.

    Kind of ridiculous. It's like a carpenter building you a chair, but making you sign a contract that says you can only use it for sitting. If you need something to stand on to change a light bulb, you have to buy the separate step stool.
