Props to him for the unlock!

Unfortunately his method involves cracking open yur phone and soldering things. I don't really want to try that!

Yeah I know that kid. I went to camp with him and we all knew he'd be a famous hacker pretty soon.

Considering who is in possession of the phone now (the founder of Certicell), I daresay it won't be long before these are more common and available.

Happy to hear they work on T-Mobile, even if I never buy a hacked one, eventually they should be available for my provider.

Wish they'd gone T-Mo to begin with, I'd have one, dagnabbit...

what does an unlocked iphone do? allow you to use other carriers?

That kid's going to the school where my boyfriend teaches. There was a big expo on the news. People usually leave RIT thinking they're the biggest hot-shot (or develop the thought process around their second term). But he's one of the lucky little guys going in that way.
