A friend of mine is in possession of several other half (I still wait for the limited edition), so I tried one of his other half on my phone which resulted in an error message like "This other half is already in use".

What happens if I get a newer Jolla in a year, will all other half become worthless, because they are linked to the phone, or will they continue to work on the new device?

on jolla's website toh section it is stated that the other half is personal and by first use / first install linked to the used jolla acount on the device. so it is linked to the account .

Really? Why?
What value does that have to me as an end-user? What if I would want to borrow one from a friend or if I have several lend on to my friends. I am a bit dissapointed. :-(

I suppose it is to protect the content that comes with TOH and is installed on first use... but still... I am sure that can be copied anyway when using the shell.

True, currently it's not possible to unlock the specific TOH(s) and use in another Jolla account. I made an own suggestion here: https://together.jolla.com/question/8153/unable-to-download-ambience-2nd-hand/ so vote for the answer if you like my proposal there.
