How iPad’s soft SIM lets Apple pit carriers AGAINST each other

Actually devices with software SIMs would have to be completely unhackable because the operators stand to lose so much (free connectivity or connectivity billed to someone else). Any device with a software SIM will have to be unrootable and unjailbreakable, or stop connecting to the network if it's rooted or jailbroken. By which I mean that it would have to take several years to break the protection, by which time people have lost interest in the device.
