The hot news today is that it IS possible to officially unlock your iPhone. Yes, you read me correctly, OFFICIALLY UNLOCK. And I’m not talking those factory non-locked phones you get in some European countries for $1000+. I’m talking about a usual subsidized locked phone. No, I’m not completely bonkers.
Those who have longed to unlock their iPhone 3G have so far been out of luck. There is the Proxy SIM card method, but it seems to be an imperfect solution (possible physical damage to your iPhone, dropped called etc). The Dev Team’s software unlock is supposed to be close to completion, but who knows when exactly. Well, if you are willing to fly to Asia for this very purpose, look no further. A great article has been written by Dong Ngo of CNET, describing a shop located in Vietnam that will hardware unlock your 3G.
