  • 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.

      just a note to all of you who are whining about not seeing a dev team release, i would suggest you stop. noone on that team is receiving a paycheck from you. yeah im excited for the new firmware too but jesus, be patient and be thankful you A. arent pinned to ATT because of them and/or B. have a jailbroken phone up until now. I think you can wait a day or two 2.0 isnt going anywhere and it certainly isnt going to kill you

      The home button stopped working on my 1st gen iphone & I need to restore, but I can't find 1.1.4 software to download anywhere. I would really appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction. Thank you very much ahead of time.

      Not sure if I'm wrong about this, but does anyone see that the iPhone(Black) on the left has 1 Voicemail although its on T-Mobile? How does that happen when T-Mobile does not have Visual Voicemail Support??

      *been scratching my head after I watched the video*

      @ leeks

      It will still show a badge even if you don't have visual voicemail. When you click ok the voicemail button, it calls your voicemail.

      The iphone will be sold in Brazil in a couple of months, September maybe... so yep, the video is real, as there is no way that this is a legit unlocked brazilian iphone 3G.
      That's not true. It's out a good many more countries.

      No ... It means you can use it with another company :P Imagine you aren't with the phone company that's selling it! Then you can use the phone as a phone and not a paper weight ... lol.

      How about if you learn some geography first, I said on “America” the only 3 countries were you can buy Iphones are the Canada, the US and Mexico, I was not talking about where you can buy unlocked phones. This dude is in Brazil, using a Brazilian carrier. But WHO CARES anyway!
