    You can jailbreak any iPhone. But unlock a 3G? No not yet, anywhere.

    Just FYI, Im using a iSmartPhone sim here in Japan on Softbank network.
    It is an AT&T locked phone but I didnt want to lock into a 2 year Softbank contract

    Works fine!

    Let me clarify as there always seems to be one in every crowd. A SIM trickster (such as a iSmartphone) is not a phone unlock. Nor is an iPhone that is unlocked via factory state as required by certain countries. You cannot software unlock a 3G phone at this time. Nuff said?

    that guy claims that he took his US bought iPhone to a store in Moscow and they software unlocked it for him.

    On the other thread you said you did a full restore and it's still unlocked,it doesn't sound right to me because if they unlock with software then when you restore it will be locked it back. either you have a legally unlocked iphone or they open your iphone and modified the hardware inside.

    Working for the company, I'm not allowed to say, but its quite possible. Here's a simple question for you, is your Visual Voicemail working properly?

    wait a second...working for the company? what does that mean? You a member of the dev team or you work for apple? so if his story may hold water, then MAYBE we are weeks away from an unlock for the 3G? so maybe your working beta of the unlock was leaked for profit? And maybe Im just making up conspiracy theories galore.. LOL But seriously, are you a member of the dev team, or an employee of apple(or both )?

    No I work for Rogers, and he used a Rogers SIM and a Fido SIM as examples, it proves nothing. But if MPS3 would like to provide me with his IMEI, I can clear the whole thing up and prove him right or wrong.

    wow where is it ?
    I'm willing to post half my IMEI along with my invoice showing the same number
    and u know what I'm fed up with ppl thinking i made this up
    i don't care
    and i don't care much about Rogers employees cause there a bunch of @#$%
    and i don't need you getting my personal info from my account
    i think its called invasion of privacy

    so while you sit there and doubt me i have my iPhone unlocked


    and you as Admin asking ppl to post the IMEI you should know better then that
    and also working @ Rogers

    its like posting my SIN number


    and that will be the end of this .................

    Same as posting your SIN? Not quite. I wasn't asking you to post your IMEI. There's such a thing as private messaging you know. And providing half an IMEI is as good as providing 1 digit of your IMEI.

    It all comes down to one simple thing, if you make a claim, be prepared to back it up. And if you don't want to be fed up with people not believing you, don't make false claims. So be happy with your "unlocked" phone.

    And that's the end of that.
