iPhone Unlock Software Goes on Sale

iPhone Unlock Software Goes on Sale

A little later than many had hoped, one of the two software unlocking solutions for the iPhone has gone on sale.  You may recall that the other retailer, Uniquephones.com, was threatened by AT&T when they first announced their intention to sell their product.
The one U.S. dealer handling iPhoneSIMFree's unlock -- which lets iPhone owners swap out SIM cards so that the device can make calls on cellular networks other than AT&T's -- listed the hack for US$99. According to a sales representative who answered the phone at New York-based Wireless Imports, the reseller is waiting on iPhoneSIMFree to deliver the licenses. Preorders taken Monday are supposed be filled within 48 hours.
$99 is actually pricey for an unlock - but when you consider they may be including future legal fees in that cost, it may not be so bad!

A gutsy move on this company's part but then again it was inevitable, so someone has to make it "real"... Now I just need a hack for the crappy cell service provided in my area by AT&T and Verizon both...

It will be something that will flood P2P, torrenting sites eventually -- why pay $99 when you can get it for free and (semi) annonomously? (that is to avoid legal issues for yourself)

<br/>I am not condoning it; just a fact. But in our society its just a given....good and bad in some cases
