Unlocked iPhone!

Sunday, February 10th, 2008

Yay! I just SIM unlocked my iPhone (myPhone ;)) and am able to use *all* it’s features!!

Sorry Apple, I have to admit that doing this makes me feel sad in a way, since it’s not how I normally like to do business with you, but, your product is just TOO cool and it’s taking you too friggin’ long to release it in Norway! (according to me that is THE major reason why so many iPhones get unlocked on unauthorized carriers!)

Anyway, I made the right judgement call last week, to wait for a software based SIM unlock instead of paying EUR 100,- for a hardware SIM trick (StealthSIM, TurboSIM, etc.)…last Thursday the software based method was released. It’s a major break-through in the cat and mouse game between Apple and developers (a term Apple will judge I guess ;)).

A tip for other people wanting to unlock their iPhone;

Check the following sites before actually going through the process of unlocking your iPhone, it helps you to understand the process and they provide a great source of information incase something unexpected occurs or completely screws up:

Both (which I used) and automated the entire process…it really was easy as 1, 2, 3!!
