"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.

Great. I am a Cingular customer and a happy one.

BTW, who in their right mind would buy a "smart" phone that doesn't even support MMS or half the other features found in today's 'free with contract' phones?

I have been a tmobile customer for 5 years until I got my DASH from work, which is also TMobile. Most of my friends are on TMobile as well, so, for now it is nice to still have the free mobile to mobile option.

I looked and AT&T's rates are very comparable, at this time. Maybe not many minutes, but they INLCUDE mobile to mobile while TMobile doesn't, and I like the Unity option as I still have a land line.

As far as MMS... yeah I know. There are a few items about this phone that may me go, Hmmmm. I can only hope they are fixed / added in updates. I am more miffed about Exchagne Active Sync and Cisco LEAP support.

Hey, but I got the phone for $250, so I can't really complain. (had a $150 apple card for opening up a checking acount)
