  • 3g 2.0 iPhone Unlocked via Sim Adapter
    Well it has been unlocked. The use a SIM adapter to simulate a fake IMSI test card. Instead of the AT&T IMSI like in the universals. What does this mean? Through the SIM adapter the network of the card is spoofed, making the iPhone believe that the SIM card is acually an activated card from an iPhone carrier. This unlock method has been used in the past using Turbo Sims, Hyper Cards, and Stealth sims. It isn't a true software unlock which we expect to see from the devs soon.

      Who's to say the guys didn't get the iPhones from one of the countries that sell them unlocked and then brought them back to Brazil.

      You can download every firmware version for both iPhone and iTouch right here on MMi in the Downloads section...

      *been scratching my head after I watched the video*
      When you're unlocked on T-Mobile it always has the badge on the phone, like you have a voicemail, even if you don't. If you click the voicemail button it just calls your voicemail like a normal T-Mobile phone would. If you call it and it says you have no voice mails then the badge goes away, but from my own personal experience it comes back every time the phone is restarted.

      Are there any other details on the unlock? It seems like all we know is that he used a SIM adapter. Was it a turbo SIM? Has anyone in the US tried this? Any additional info or links would be sweet..

      That is because you have the old Simcard go into the store and update to a new simcard and that will stop happening.

      Actually.... NOT in Brazil. He is talking Italian and TIM is NOT T-Mobile
      but Telecom Italia Mobile.
      In Italy you can buy factory-unlocked iPhones...
      So what about you to learn some geography and possibly even get rid a little of the exclusive americas-focus

      Would there be a way for "hackers" to have a look through a factory unlocked iPhone to see what makes it unlocked and then possible find an unlocking solution that way?
