    jeykoo and spoon:
    you are both kind of wrong.

    engadget did test a unlock, and this will work, but its not the unlock talked on this topic about.

    Engadget tested iphonesimfree.com which is a different company than uniquephone/iphoneunlocking.com!

    the one engadget tested is still "on scheudule" since they did just say "in the next few days"

    and if engadget posted it, it is true, they have a too high credibility to just post something hoaxy, they tested it and it worked!

    These guys are a bad joke. Who on earth believes that?

    From July 2, 2007:

    "iPhoneUnlocking is claiming to have unlocked more than 5,000 iPhones, using codes generated from the handset's IMEI."

    http://www.macuser.co.uk/macuser/new...f-iphones.html

    They are liars, pure and simple. Geohot's hardware method seems to be the only genuine one at this point of time. I'm fed up with empty promises. Who isn't?

    and all of this shit is only because of money making...

    these assholes should release their software via torrent and everything would be fine...

    it should be enough for them that the whole worlds loves them and maybe just give them a donate....

    @ fabiopigi

    I know that simfree and unlocking are different companies. And I know endgadget is talking about simfree.
    For the last two months all I read about software unlocking is that "next week", "soon", "in a couple of days" the software will be available.
    And until now, nobody - not even engadget - made a simple video, with a iPhone connected to a computer being unlocked.
    The Dev Team and Geohot always said it will be hard to find a solution.
    We want to believe that those companies really have the unlock.
    jekyoo_style want to believe so much that he calls me "stupid" just because I said that engadget may be wrong. They could have been misleaded to believe in a software solution, and their video is not that convincing.
    What I'm saying is that we have no reason to believe any of this companies.
    Unlocking.com did other unlocks. But they are a company. Free advertising mean a lot for them. Since they one is asking for imeis, and now they magically had the solution.

    I would love to pay 100 dolars for the application.
    But until some of us report software unlocking the iPhone, I have no reason to trust unlocking or simfree.

    After that, I'll gladly change my mind.

    I was kidding of course...

    I think that NOBODY has actually seen a working software unlocked iPhone.
    I doubt that the guys at Engadget checked the phone if there is a TurboSIM inside for example. Even if they did, there still is the hardware soldering method which is invisible.

    Personally, I think that Engadget has been used (with a hardware modded iPhone) for free advertisement and they fell for it.
    Even if the mentioned company doesn't come out with a software unlock today or tomorrow (which isn't very likely :p), people worldwide already know the name AND the internet link of this company. Since most of the people worldwide DO NOT check internet forums like this one, most people will think there is a delay, nothing else. So if this company comes out with a software unlock a month later, they still profit from the hype Engadget started with their report. A real shame.

    Even if there will be a free software unlock from the Dev Team or somebody else, this company will still make money, simply because this Engadget announcement was the best ad they could get, it was taken over by many other internet magazines, blogs and even serious news companies. I wouldn't be surprised to read about this company in the newspapers tomorrow or Monday.

    Another thing, I don't know if you guys actually thought about it:

    Here is the claim of the guy from one company who claims that AT&T lawyers contacted him:

    We have the software. It works. And we are ready to go.

    Seems AT&T is a bit annoyed at the idea. A middle of the night phone call from a Silicon Valley law firm is slowing down the release of the software to you.



    Read this claim VERY carefully and now tell me: where in this claim does he actually say that AT&T lawyers or lawyers working for AT&T contacted him?
    Clever, very very clever.

    If AT&T never contacted him through a law firm, they should sue this guy until he looses his underwear too. Because this claim, if not true, actually had a great impact on the public view of AT&T as a company. A lot of negative publicity started, I hope AT&T does the right thing if this guy wasn't telling the truth and/or actually tried to make it sound like as AT&T has put him under legal pressure.

    Here's a comment from him on July 7th.

    "McLaughlin plans to charge customers about US$49.99 for software to unlock iPhones. Even if UniquePhones is not the first to offer unlocking capability, it won't be hard for them to replicate what others have done once the encryption is cracked, he added."

    He was obviously hoping that someone else - the Dev team? - would release the unlock and then offer it for sale through his site.
    Today he says he was called at 3am from a "Silicon Valley legal firm"
    1. How did they get his number?
    2. Why doesn't he say that it was Apples lawyers or AT&T's?
    Now this would be interesting if true - are you based in Belfast? My business partner is from Belfast, he's in London with me at the mo but shouldn't be too difficult to track down said company...
