One of the unresolved mysteries of the world, as we know, is the unlock of the iPhone 4 (with old basebands). The iPhone Dev Team is still working on a tool that would let iPhone 4 users unlock their device whenever they please, but that Ultrasn0w update has been delayed over and over. As we know, in the past days we have to jailbreak iphone 4 by using a dvd to iphone 4 converter.
Apple has wined a small but important victory against the iOS hacking community and there are plenty of iPhone 4 users out there that cant actually use the iPhone 4 as a phone. Recently we showed you a physical way of unlocking any iPhone by using the Gevey SIM, a procedure thats both risky and maybe even illegal in certain countries, not that we would endorse any such tools or practices.
CutYour Sim is now offering an unlocking service to anyone who owns an iPhone 3G, 3GS, or iPhone 4, that is to say we can unlock our iphone 4 without jailbreak it now even though someone dont know how to jailbreak iphone 4. Unfortunately for Verizon customers seeking an unlock, this service only applies to the GSM models.
The unlock is completely legal, it requires no jailbreak, or any software changes of any kind. On the site the company explains the simple procedure:This one is making big news, and we were a bit skeptical at first as we tend to live by the fact "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. If that's true, this a a huge thing for iPhone owners who like to unlock their devices. Whether you use an iPhone 4 or another iPhone model such as the 3GS or 3G, you can use this method.
1. Type in your iPhones IMEI number in the IMEI# section. You can get this number from the phone by dialing *#06# please do not get the IMEI number from the box.2. Once payment is received, we will email you when the phone is ready, and unlocked. (This can take 2-5 days, or less) You will not need to enter any codes, your IMEI# will be added to Apples whitelist and will be unlocked forever.3. Once unlock is complete, we will notify you. All you have to do then is, connect your iPhone with any Sim Card to iTunes. This will then activate and unlock your phone.
You dont have to send the phone away anywhere, its done remotely. If you have an iPhone, and have the cash to spare, its certainly worth it, and you can even put dvd movie to iphone 4 after your unlock If it sounds a bit suspicious like it shouldnt be possible, let me confirm that it is. Over here in the UK when O2 lost the exclusivity, the carrier started offering free unlocks to all iPhone users. They used the same procedure, I filled in a form online with my IMEI number, and a few days later it was unlocked. A message appears on your screen, you put in any carriers SIM and plug it in to iTunes. Its really as simple as that. This could be really handy if you travel abroad frequently, or if you prefer to use T-mobile.
