    Default Create a new Phone App?

    The focus is on unlocking the phone function already built into the iPhone's OS. Would it be possible to create a new phone function and install it as a third party app? You can now add a new app, right? I'm sure it can't be too hard to get a GSM mobile software stack. Plenty of PDA's run phone functions as an app, I believe.

    Or am I talking rubbish?

    Interesting idea but since the lock isn't in the firmware and/or operated by an application, I doubt this is going to work. It wouldn't make a difference. Somebody else?

    No, that wouldn't work at all. The whole point here is that the iPhone will not use another carriers sim. Yes, you could write another phone program, which would be a shitload of work for nothing. Applications do not have any access to an unauthorized sim card.

    And I doubt that you understand the means through which many pda's access phone functions in 3rd party apps. It's not that the app can make calls, but that the app can communicate with the pda's OS to make a call, it's all handled by the OS.

    Unfortunately.

    I would love to see it work too. I'm not at all interested in unlocking the iPhone, so it's not like I would be using such a solution, but it still would be awesome to tackle this problem once and for all.
