    Default Hardware Unlock in Toronto!!

    Hey everyone,

    Just wanted to say that last night, i got my iPhone unlocked by a very reputable dealer in Toronto, Ontario. Took about an hour to do and everything is working fine. I also have Youtube working and the lastest FW (1.02).

    The RF is actually better than my V3 or the BB Curve, which is really surprising!

    If you need to know where i got it done, just ask and i'll be more than happy to tell.

    I've sync'd the phone with iTunes and got all my contacts/songs/videos/pictures to the phone.

    Waited two months and now i finally get to fully utilize it!

    Good stuff man.

    Let me know where that was, I'm interested to find out.

    I really want to wait for a software unlock, but I'm not convinced that it exists.

    I've found a few people who "say" they can do it. They offer 2 services. Same day - which means you get your phone back in 1-2 hours and next day. Same day cost $200 and next day cost $100.

    If you guys are interested I can post their email addresses.

    I should have listed the place on here =)

    BongoWireless provided the unlocking for me.
    www.bongowireless.com. He is well known in the cellular industry.
    Please call him and ask him for pricing. it took roughly an hour to do (could take longer??)

    Hope that helps,

    Thanks

    Hello folks, due to the overwhelming response for iphone unlocking we are sending out a general email to everyone who inquired with more information.

    We are currently offering same day unlocking service for $200 or next day unlocking service for $100. Due to all the phones coming in same day service is a first come first serve basis. During the weekdays phones can be dropped for same day and next day service in Mississauga (403 and erinmills) you can also drop them off for next day service at (keele and wilson) On the weekends we have a booth at the vendors fleamarket (airport road and steeles where phones can be dropped off there for sameday/next day service.

    Our unlocking process is done through a hardware unlock method which requires the phone to be opened but there is no altering of the hardware nothing is soldered, added or removed from the phone, thus your warranty remains fully intact.

    After the unlocking process is completed you will be able to use any gsm simcard worldwide with your phone to make calls as opposed to being locked primarily to AT&T. All of the other features such as wifi, ipod etc.. are unlocked, however youtube will not work as it is primarily an AT&T service.

    The unlocked method we use takes approximately 2 hours. It takes about 45 minutes to open the phone as it has to be done very carefully so we don't damage anything. The rest of the time is allocated to transferring the necessary files, dumping of the memory and editing the hex files needed to unlock the phone. Once completed the phone is carefully put back together and will be fully unlocked. Currently we have unlocked approximately 28 units with 100% success rate.

    As of now we are not sure if future updates will relock the phone so far 1.00 upgraded to either 1.0.1 or 1.0.2 worked flawlessly. If apple releases a software updated in which it modifies the firmware of the baseband there may be a possibility the phone may be relocked. We won't know until a future release comes out.

    If there are any other questions you have please feel free to send us an email we will try to respond as quick as possible but we are getting about 30 emails an hour.

    If you would like you phone unlocked please leave your name/number and where you would like to drop your phone off and someone will get back to you asap.
