    UNLOCK IS HERE!

    FULL TUTORIAL IS HERE FOR OS X USERS!!!



    Daeken, Darkmen, guest184, gray, iZsh, pytey, roxfan, Sam, uns, Zappaz, Zf, plus Nightwatch for the toolchain were responsible for this, and it is HERE! WHA HOO!

    I have updated the guide to reflect the new GUI app for unlocking, it is much easier. Link updated in this post. It is here.

    If you would like your voicemail to keep working correctly, follow this guide. NOTE: This already works with carriers who's name shows up in the top of the iPhone, namely, T-Mobile.

    Problems?

    Check the F.A.Q. before asking questions!

      i haven't bought an iphone yet. but if i buy one and install this onto it, if i put an AT&T sim in that doesn't have a dataplan, will the wifi browsing still work? does anyone know how exactly this works without a data plan?

      wifi is independent of your carrier's data plan. it is not metered or measured in anyway by your carrier.

      Everytime i replace the lockdownd file on my phone, it acts soooooooooooooooo slow, and I am unable to do anything. I have to basically restore the phone, and now my SIM is not recognized. So i am going to have to do this all again, for a third time. Does anyone else ahve any experience with the lockdownd issue? maybe it is a permissions issue? By the way I was unable to use wifi to install things, I had to us iPHUC and putfile to put both the Unlock app and the lockdownd files this way. Any help is appreciated!!

      I've unlocked 3 iPhones now, the first 2 went perfect no errors no nothing.

      But when I got to the third iPhone I got an error near the end when you do minicom.

      AT+CLCK="PN",0,"00000000"
      ERROR
      AT+CLCK="PN",2
      +CLCK: 1

      OK


      Frustrated and pissed off I went ahead and closed out of it [ Ctrl + a -> q ]

      I went ahead enabled the baseband
      launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.CommCenter.plist
      And oddly enough it was unlocked and it worked for t-mobile. The only flaw that I could find with the phone was that it didn't show the carriers name on the home screen that was about it, everything else worked. The first 2 iPhones were 4 GB and the third one was a 8 GB maybe the 8 GB is harder? Haha, anyways hoped I helped.

      Hmm. I've bought dozens, all in the past few days, and unlocked. No issues. You in OS X or Windows? Seems more Win guys are having issues...

      You will also need to set up your EDGE settings in the iPhone
      So if you unlock the iphone before you add the unlimited data plan to ur account, will normal calls/texts still work? Because the data plan is just for wifi if im not mistaken...

      Or do i need the data plan to make any calls whatsoever?? thanks

      Can someone help me please because I did the unlock successfully and I put a friends tmobile sim card in my phone and it says reactivate in itunes with a skip button. Does anyone know what I need to do?

      No, the data plan has nothing to do with WiFi. WiFi is built into the device, not the plan. You can always access that. You can make calls and send/receive texts without having any sort of data plan.

      Hey poetic_folly I was in another post and they said that once the iPhone was unlocked it was unlocked for good even if you did a restore. How ever I did a restore to see if this was true and now I have to reactivate when I put in another sim besides the ATT and yes I did jailbreak before switching the sims.

      Re-activate sure, but did you have to reunlock as well?

      Yes. I read on the other post on here that after restore you had to jailbreak and it would allow you to be still unlocked. I did reactivate because my friend activated the phone with ATT I know what he hick. But anyway when I put in the other sim it told me that I had to reconnect to iTunes and reactivate. So I guess you have to unlock every time you restore.

      All, I am using a Mac and following the instructions IPhone unlock OS X on a brand new (non-AT&T activated) iPhone.

      I am getting stuck at Step 2 of Part 3. For the like of me I cannot get my iPhone at this stage to connect to any open WiFi network.

      Am I doing something wrong?

      BTW: does the new version of iNdependence (1.2.1a) have a different button combination for the Activate pane than the screen shot in the guide?

      Thanks for any help in advance.

      Don't use the 1.2.1a. I had allot problems with it. If you can get the 1.1.1 I think that is the version before the 1.2.1a. When I used that version everything went smooth no hassle or trouble.
