I wonder about people buying a new phone each year. But well, maybe I'm just a communist :P
For Apple, some people just love them so much that they want to have the latest iPhone to look in. For others, I think it has to do with mobile carriers offering stuff like $0 phone if you subscribe to certain mobile plans, because a phone alone costs more than a laptop or desktop.

Well, as I told, Sony had a code for a menu which helped people repairing broken phones. So I guess it's kind of that reason. On the other hand, not protecting this at all with a confirmation is a little bit strange too.

Oh and guys, please be nice and don't do such pranks. It doesn't makes you cool, it makes you immature :P Being destructive is only cool if you don't harm anyone else then yourself. Such data loss can be really nasty, and you don't want that happen to yourself, do you?
Yeah the lack of confirmation is what concerns me. It was definitively not meant for public use, unless they were stupid enough to offer such feature without a confirmation screen, especially considering it could at one point be used as an exploit on websites.

I agree. THose pranks are not prank. They're vandalism. Imagine if a "friend" used your computer then reformated it without your consent. Same thing.
