Since the release of the iPhone, hackers have been trying to unlock the phone so that it could be used on networks other than that of the exclusive carrier – AT&T.
Well after a few weeks of waiting, this geek has figured it out.
He claims it just took a bunch of energy drinks, and now, his iPhone displays the T-Mobile service on the screen rather than AT&T.
He had started an eBay auction for the unlocked iPhone, but after having received too many false bids, he decided to trade the phone:
Terry Daidone, the founder of Certicell contacted me this morning, and offered to make a trade for the iPhone. I traded it for a sweet Nissan 350Z and 3 8GB iPhones. I will be sending the iPhones, unlocked if they wish, to jpetrie(the first donater), gray(the reversing genius), and iProof(who is truly amazing at finding stuff online) Thanks a lot everyone. I leave for college tomorrow, and this has been a great end to a great summer. If I ever do anything more with the iPhone, it’ll definitely be posted here. Also I contacted iphonesimfree and offered to verify on this blog their claims of a software unlock. No response yet…
Now, you won’t have to cancel your current contract if you’re with T-Mobile (like me) and you won’t have to use iTunes to activate the phone. Keep up the good work dorks!!!
