iPhone Unlocking – The Definitive Guide
UPDATE : Completely free, no frills iPhone Unlock procedure released to the world. Dump iPhoneSIMFree and visit http://iphone.unlock.no 🙂
The originators –
iPhone Dev team failed to release the free unlock so far while many other hacks are being worked out. Only time will tell if iPhoneUnlocking.com team is staging a drama with all the Lawyer from Silicon Valley stuff but GeoHot, the teen who put the hardware unlocked iPhone on eBay has proved it, so did the engadget team with complete proof.
Different approaches for unlocking your iPhone :
Well, I would definitely not invest in an $80 ~ $100 hack right now. More like sim cloning which might not be legal in all the countries. Check this guide for more info.
2) Hardware Unlock
This is by far the most technically complicated procedure and even though I am an Electronics engineer, I won’t dare to take apart the iPhone and go about soldering, its like asking too much from sooo costly a device!! Anyways try it if you are desperate cos’ a software unlock is not far away, neither is the worldwide release. Check the detailed pictorial description of the hardware unlock procedure. Know more from the dashing teen from NJ who created it.
3) Software Unlock

iPhoneSimfree.com and iPhoneUnlocking.com,both have announced a software unlock but they fear the release will attract lotta legal attention from AT&T, and Apple benefits as always!! iPhoneUnlocking.com claimed the software unlock of the iPhone with solid proof.
