Now all we have to do is get the Unlocked Firmware and Baseband software from an unlocked iPhone and upgrade our locked phones! Is it just me or is this pretty exciting!
No more downgrade/upgrade/virginize... Not that I don't appreciate all the hard work the dev team and all the other software geniuses out there put into jailbreaking/unlocking and apps, but wouldn't this mean we could basically upgrade and not brick our iphones?

T-Mobile to open up iPhone sales
iPhone users are still tied to just one network in the US and UK
T-Mobile is to start allowing German customers to buy Apple's iPhone without a contract to its network, as it moves to comply with a court injunction.
Its announcement comes after rival Vodafone went to a German court to challenge T-Mobile's exclusive tie-up with the iPhone in Germany.
T-Mobile will now sell people just the handset for 999 euros ($1,477; £719).
This is a significant premium over the 399-euro price for those who also take out a two-year T-Mobile contract.
Apple has similar exclusive iPhone arrangements with O2 in the UK and AT&T in the US.
T-Mobile added that customers could also now have the SIM lock on their iPhone removed, including those who have already purchased a handset.
This would allow them to switch to another phone network.
T-Mobile said in its statement that it would abide by the conditions "until the legal situation is resolved".
11-21-2007, 01:05 PM #23i got one....
So, I went into a T-Mobile Sho and got one for 999,-- Euro
As this is brandnew, the lady in the shop made a mistake and gave me a number to call to get the unlock code. But they are not able to give it to me now. I have been told to go back to the shop and get it unlocked there.
I understood that the unlock is seems to be connected to the IMEI but i guess it is a code which you have to dial into the phone .
Tomorrow I will go to the shop again to make the unlock and i try to find out how it is done. I keep you updated

11-22-2007, 07:49 AM #27ok it is here....
So I got the information from the T Shop that Apple will open the Phone only by IMEI Nr. and via iTunes.
We will see if it really works like this. Does anyone has see a possibility to jailbreak 1.1.2 and to look into the files without downgrading to 1.1.1?

This could be very interesting. Do the Dev Team have a donate page specifically for buying one of thesephones?

I don't get it. How is this good or bad for us in the US ?
11-23-2007, 01:56 AM #30
its good because then it will be factory unlocked no more locks any gsm service

Would it not be funny if Apple were simply using IPSF? - after all; you send them your IMEI they register it and they register it.
Don't know how they would do the back-end stuff on your phone, but to me this makes me think that the IPSF way could actually be the correct method of an unlock (ie: someone working at Apple leaked some very important information).
11-23-2007, 09:06 AM #32it seems so.....
Honestly it seems that Apple uses a similar Method then ipsf.
Telekom told me they get it unlocked with the IMEI only and via iTunes.
Taking 24 hours about.
