Take this with a grain of salt, folks -- there are more reliable sources on the internet saying that the iPhoneUnlocking organization is one giant scam.
If you're interested in unlocking your iPhone, many more advances have been made with it. It's now possible to activate your iPhone without having anything to do with AT&T, and in just a few hours we should be able to unlock the phone as well. No need to take huge risks with a less than reputable site

ahh but if they really pay $100 just for access to view the traffic that would be relatively low risk to your precious iPhone. Wouldn't be a bad way to earn $100

You're still giving up your IMEI *and* your SIM number though.. which can definitely be used by someone else to make their phone calls, and then your bill goes through the roof. There's a whole crapload of sensitive information in that dump!

better to give away your imei and get paid for it than pay that unlocking site to let you give them your imei

hahahahaha, well regardless, we should look forward to an unlocking solution yet tonight . I'm stoked. I'd love to go to work tomorrow and try my coworker's T-mobile sim in this.

I'm confused now by TomFrost's comments. He makes it seem like IphoneUnlocking.com is giving you $100 to unlock your phone and basically use your iPhone as a Guinea Pig. I was under the impression that there would be no unlocking taking place and that IphoneUnlocking.com would just be "monitoring the traffic between iTunes and your phone". Is there any danger with that?Omar C.

"Is there any danger with that?"
"monitoring the traffic between iTunes and your phone"
We need to perform a "Vulcan mind probe of your new iPhone".

@bmai: According to the community, iPhoneUnlocking.com is lying to you -- it's a scam. They claim to be able to unlock phones, but they cannot. However, they're getting people to send them interactions between the their phone and their computer, which gives this scammer two things:
Your phone's IMEI number
Your sim card's ID number
Having both of these things lets them hijack your account and make calls as though they're you. All of their charges go on your bill -- hence why this is a scam. People who do this could very likely get screwed in a very big way. And no one's confirmed actually even getting money from them.
Again, I can't say for 100% certain whether this is true or not, since this is coming from the community at large -- but in my opinion, the risk of this is FAR too great to consider doing it.
Best of luck, and be careful!
