iPhone unlocked!!

This morning I was in a meeting and finally held a real iPhone and played around with it, but told the group that no, I wouldn’t be getting one quite yet. BUT…

It is here!! The UNLOCKED iPHONE! Yes, it was just a matter of time.

Engadget reports that the iPhone has been unlocked. And they’ve used it on T-Mobile. You can now use it with any GSM carrier around the world!

Again: we can confirm with 100% certainty that iPhoneSIMfree.com’s software solution completely SIM unlocks the iPhone, is restore-resistant, and should make the iPhone fully functional for users outside of the US.

And it is restore-resistant. Of course Apple will try to wipe this out with an upgrade, but it is supposed to be upgrade resistant (not not sure about that, but we’ll see).

Yay! I might just head out and get myself an iPhone – finally!! 🙂

    Actually, I’m not sure that Apple will respond quickly. What’s really in it for them to fix it (other than AT&T’s panicked requests?)

    Sales will go up since people, like Shripriya, will now buy more unlocked iPhones. And Apple (presumably) makes the majority of its money on the hardware.

    Now, if I was AT&T, I guess I would be trying to use the Orwellian DCMA to try and restrain people from modifying something they OWN- even though Congress has expressly excluded cell-phones (why?!)… oh wait, AT&T HAS decided to threaten lawsuits. What a surprise!

  • nice post, thanks!
