    Default 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.

    Yeah and what words of wisdom do you have for us?
    "First!" posters that have nothing valuable to say or a point or comment to make FAIL big time...

    Do you sit with thumping on refresh with a box of Kleenex beside you for moments like these??? Sad...

    Anyway... back on track, I guess a Jailbreak is still required for the "extra" functionality...

    On America the only 3 countries with iphones out for sale are Canada, the US. and Mexico.
    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.

    Ok the video to me is fishy. why you ask. Ok do the video over. show the sim adapter,show it going in the phone, and explain how it done,and where to buy...People let get with the program. I live off this site and i read it like ten times day and when someone creat or does something for the phone is wonderful. I'm just saying explain so we enjoy it

    Thank
