iPhone 100% Unlocked Using Turbo SIM Card

Illustration for article titled iPhone 100% Unlocked Using Turbo SIM Card

Click to viewAccording to the usual suspects, now you can 100%-unlock the iPhone using a Turbo SIM card, without depending on the version of your current carrier card. Testers say it will give you full calling, SMS and GPRS data capabilities with any network. You won't need extra hardware, since it only requires you to modify the $80 blank SIM using your own iPhone.

The hackers are claiming that this method doesn't use card readers and it doesn't depend on your previous card version either, so it doesn't matter if it is a V1, V2 or V3. All of them will work fine.

While the Turbo SIM-based method is not software-only, it seems simple and cheap enough for anyone to follow.

However, to save you any potential pain we will test it here as soon as we get our Turbo SIM cards —which are about to arrive. We will give you a full report on our results as soon as we try it. [Bladox Forums]

@Tony of TonyandJuan.com: Ever heard of Yamipod or Rockbox? Apple does not force you to use nothing but iTunes, it just happens to be the thing that it comes with, but you're free to abandon iTunes altogether and use something else.

Why do people assume that Apple would care to patch this at all? They're not obligated to AT&T to hunt down and track every iPhone and cripple them if unlocked, and Apple, sure enough, would suddenly get more and more sales because of this, as being locked into AT&T is what deters more people, more so than the price tag. At $500-$600, an unlocked iPhone is right up my alley.
