    This is going crazy. And I think we still needs to wait. To see whether it's true or not

    I think its time for some conpiracy theories...

    Think now; it is very obvious that with this much determination, hard work and hype, sooner or later there'll be an unlock solution and a specially apple (and AT&T) will loose a lot of money. I said a specially apple because they'll also loose future contracts too (world wide).

    and then suddenly, out of nowhere (or maybe they were planned before and kept as backups) some guys pop-up with magicly perfect unlock-software solution which doesn't only unlocks your iphone but also promisses to keep your phone unlocked for future updates too...

    and this amazingly perfect software can also check and identify individual phones too...

    long story short; these guys looks too good to be true to me, at least not by them selfs only...
    apple might thought this to coverup their loses...
    even our dev team comes up with a free alternative it could be prevented on next update but at the same time let these pay-for-freedom guy go on... so eventually all the iphones will make them their extra cash as they expect...

    Why would Apple lose money this way? I don't think losing contracts would really matter to Apple all that much in the future so long as their products continue to sell and are still desirable to the masses. Apple is a consumer products company and they're good at what they sell.

    Think about it. Apple is in total control over its products. They "bullied" AT&T into signing a partnership only after Verizon turned them down. I'm sure a lot of other telecom companies would have not agreed to play by Apple's book.

    And just imagine, what if AT&T didn't agree to the partnership...what if none of the the telecom companies didn't bite? Then Apple wouldn't have a carrier to tie the iPhone to. If that were the case, Apple would have went with Plan B: sell the iPhone as an unlocked phone and release possibly both GSM and CDMA versions for the masses to buy.

    Apple makes at least $250 per unit sale of the iPhone based on the costs breakdown written in a previously engadget article. The fact that the phone has been cracked/unlocked now means that there are hundreds of thousands of people around the world who can now buy an iPhone and that's a lot of money Apple gets pocketed. The only real loser is AT&T in this case as they're giving up 10% of subscription revs to Apple. And I'm sure Apple wouldn't mind taking a hit on not earning these added revs for mass market iPhone purchases.

    All due respect but you guys are idiots if you think Apple is going to turn a blind eye to this

    Apple and AT&T would have prepared for this type of thing well in advance of the iPhone release, and you can bet your ass a patch is already in the pipeline.

    Question: would you giveup your extra $50~ for every iphone you sell, while you dont have to?
    big multynational companies like apple doesnt see it that way. there is a term in my lang. like; "to lose from profit" which means something like making $250 while you could $300...
    you say that "The fact that the phone has been cracked/unlocked now means that there are hundreds of thousands of people around the world who can now buy an iPhone and that's a lot of money Apple gets pocketed." but i see it on those phones they loose %10 cut of AT&T. this way they'll not loose any thing in any case, buying your phones freedom from apple (from under the table).

    so, to me this looks like; the official unlock which you can buy from apple (iphonesimfree)

    ofcourse they were prepared for this. thats what i'm saying, this is a kind of official unlock which you can buy. its all win-win situation for apple. they''l eleminate all of the non-official hacks, but keep these guys/keep the cash coming/ keep the community happy/ let the people who wants their freedom so bad buy their freedom / keep your self and contracts clean...

    cant you see????

    Keeping it short and sweet... This is going to make a good movie in the near future. Then Apple and AT&T can get more proceeds as we will go watch this saga on the silver screen.

    Following this for so long, if you think about all that has happened...all of it, it really is a saga.

    Wouldn't that be a funny twist! AT&T puts pressure on the unlockers to share the loot.
