Hello, 911. What is your emergency?
"Help! I've just put out a serious kitchen-fire but I've burned my hands - send an ambulance!"
Sir, that's a new Apple iPhone with fingerprint ID. We won't accept your call as legitimate without fingerprint ID and activation.
"My hands are too badly burned!!"
Sorry, sir, Sony might sue us if we allowed someone to mod their iPhone and use it. It sounds like you need Applie Tech Support first. Shall I connect you? It's only $10... You DO have DRM turned on, right? We wouldn't want to offend MPAA or RIAA, just in case they see files stores on your iPhone that they don't authorize.
Once upon a time...
...we were only worried about nukes and offending Coca-Cola.
