    Default Norwegian newspaper says unlock is done...?

    Norway's largest newspaper, VG, says to today on their webpage that the iPhone is ulocked and comfirmed working on other operators.

    Surely it must be the "SuperSim" method they talk about? The strange thing, is that they say that this unlock method is legal. If I have understood correctly, the supersim method is most definitive illegal?

    Here's the artickle (Norwegian, babelfish it or something...)

    from my understanding the sim clone is debatable in terms of legality. some countries make it illegal, others might not have such legislation.

    Also, as long as you are not doing this with someone elses's line, but your own phone and sim, it is debatable how illegal it is...

    (this isnt legal advice, consult the laws of your country. I fully retract everything I said in this post )

    Default yes

    it is indeed the supersim method they're reporting on... Nothing new, and a bit misleading for us users of this most excellent forum

    Caution: the new anti-hacking law in the European Union, not in effect yet but soon, forbids any kind of hacking and/or reverse engineering.
    Meaning: the Dev Team and this site would be very well advised if they'd move their server to outside the EU to make sure that they don't get in serious trouble once the new laws are in effect. Just a little reminder.

    Regarding the Super SIM method (cloning): if the cell phone service provider finds out, you could get in serious trouble. People using this method should be VERY careful that they don't use both SIM cards, the original and the clone, at the same time.

    No, the Super SIM method is NOT an unlock of the phone, so any newspaper claiming this is actually talking BS.

    Here in Romania they won't accuse me of anything cause as long as i pay it i can have as many clones as i want. If i was cloning someone elses SIM that would have been a problem. But since then they don't have any proof that i am doing something wrong. Dunno about other countryes tho...
