    I thought they have tested it....

    Well, until the hack is proved true / false, Engadget will get a shit load of traffic.

    Engadget claim it was their iPhone - "...right in front of our very eyes we witnessed a full SIM unlock of our iPhone with a small piece of software"

    Still, it would be sensible to be skeptical until others can confirm this. I have a mate who works for a UK television (news) company and he can't get a response from iphonesimfree. They don't seem too keen to confirm this process to mainstream journalists.

    Let's hope we're all wrong and that we have a lovely unlocked iPhone by the end of the week

    What does any website want? More traffic. More traffic = more advertisment = more money from each pay-per-click advert.

    But hey who knows, personally I think its extremely dodgy but until we've tried it out ourselves theres no real way to see if its true or not.

    I'm inclined to believe it.

    1. Ryan Block was the guy who was duped by a faked internal Apple email and spread the story that the iPhone was delayed until October. He and Engadget copped some flak over that (even talk of an SEC investigation). He's likely to be more careful now.

    2. Veronica Belmont's (pink!) iPhone was there, so she was probably only a few feet away. He wouldn't knowingly pull a scam in front of her.

    3. He said he witnessed a painless software process. According to him, it was his/Engadget's iPhone, it wasn't taken away and wasn't supplied already modified.

    4. Engadget would lose an enormous amount of credibility if this was faked. Yes, they'd get short term traffic, but they'd become a laughing stock for future claims.

    Time will tell, but I'm leaning to it being genuine.

    if i was the creator of the "software" i would have just joined this forum and pmed a few users, and when many can confirm that its real post it in different places and start asking for donations from people who would have benefited from it. but they taught they were really smart by bragging about something they dont have. i still cant understand what is their objective. maybe they have to much time in their hands so decided to mess with us. they know how important this is for us and they are making a joke out of it. honestly i would donate and i am sure iphone users will be so ever gratefull for the true unlock... till then i hope the software developers can count on us once they decide to rlelease the software.

    Engadget do report fake Apple internal emails that never exists. And see, they are still working great. So I think even though Engadget is faking this iPhone story, they will be fine.

    This keeps getting talked about... The guy admits it in the article, sounds simple enough...

    The video stream does get cropped toward the end. That's actually just a crop to make sure the phone number on the second iPhone isn't shown.
    ...and

    I hope its real, but there's a definite cut in the video when the call is being made.


    Ryan Block @ Aug 24th 2007 12:26PM
    Again, it's not a cut, I had to crop out part of the video because the number was displayed. No frames are missing from the video.
    I presume he's talking about this. But then I don't know why he says "No frames are missing from the video"? ...As there is isn't there?
