Unlocking your iPhone (for use with other carriers) the original way is a rather risky process.
You must endure:
a. risking losing warranty
b. risking bricking your device (which cost you a mighty $500 bucks)
c. firmware modifications
d. being comfortable with step-by-step hacks
But no more.
USB Fever has released a new product – the Universal SIM Unlock Card.
Punch a hole in your SIM Card and your Unlock Card – slip it in between your SIM Card and your SIM Port on your iPhone – and tada! Use your iPhone with whatever service provider you’d like.
And supposedly this card functions with 3G devices – so it should function with the iPhone 2.0.
But who knows – for all we know the iPhone 2.0 could be an amorphous neon bubble which communicates solely in Yiddish.
Note: The Universal SIM Unlock Card isn’t intended specifically for the iPhone but rather a range of many phones including the iPhone (hence universal). So if you have another phone that needs unlocking, check USB Fever’s list – for the card probably works for it too.
The Price: $22.99
What says the…
Geek: I live on the edge – and I unlock iPhones the good ole’ fashioned way.
Socialite: Or you could just get AT&T.
Soccer Mom: What do you mean "unlock"? You have a key for your iPhone? …but there’s no door…
