"iPhone Dev Team" releases iUnlock software

Only a day after the release of the iPhoneSimfree software to retailers, the enterprising "iPhone Dev Team" has managed to reproduce the functionality for a much more appealing price: free.

Twelve dedicated coders, known only as Daeken, Darkmen, guest184, gray, iZsh, Nightwatch, pytey, roxfan, Sam, uns, Zappaz, and Zf, have managed to decipher the unlocking codes for the iPhone and are making their software available to the world for download -- and at the miniscule size of 6,458 bytes.

While a direct link cannot be provided to the unlocking software, it has been tested and confirmed working. It remains to be seen if updating the iPhone will disrupt the functionality, but testing will continue and updates will be provided as events warrant.

Even with the small size of the unlock code, websites hosting the file or discussion of the procedure, such as, are being brought to a crawl by hordes of visitors. With the recent $200 price cut to the 8GB model and newfound freedom from AT&T, iPhone orders may rise sharply in the next few hours alone.

Exactly. My friend was gonna pay $100 for that crap yesterday when I convinced him not to. He should PAY ME for saving him $100.

Glad its been hacked for free. I think AT&T sucks in San Jose. Does anyone know if you can use an unlocked iPhone on Verizon? I don't know if it is a GSM network.

Verizon is not GSM, so no.

Haha, your friend should at least pay you half.
