I have no idea what this will mean for iPhone owners, but a suit that stemmed from the exclusive agreement between Apple and AT&T for the iPhone has been granted class action status. I for one would love to see an end to exclusives; I think handsets should be universally available on all networks.
The class action status of the suit now covers anyone who purchased an iPhone between June 29, 2007 and today. Presumably, if you are like me and have had three different iPhones in that time you will be covered on all of them is there is some sort of settlement.

The heart of the suit is supposedly the fact that even with a 2-year contract buyers were getting at least a five-year contract thanks to the exclusive deal for the iPhone. The five-year agreement was confirmed by court documents.
