    Default Question : Parkerseng Sim Kit / Hyper Card

    I'm don't really like the software unlock (don't blame me ) because you're phone can be locked again after the next update, I know you guys get updates but ... WHAT GUARANTEES DO I HAVE AGAINST FUTURE UPDATES if I buy parkerseng sim kit / hyper card ? ... will it keep working after updates like the hardware unlock ?

    Many tnx Maarten

    My understanding is that the PSS/Hyper Card method works by providing the iPhone with a false ICCID number which it supplies. Whether it always supplies the same ICCID or some number based on an algorithm, it is conceivable that future iPhone updates could look for these false ICCIDs and prevent them from operating. I am not sure that there is any present method which is update-proof.

    The bigger question then is whether or not Apple will undertake to prevent unlocking through its updates. With the AppleTV, they set a precedent of neutrality towards hacking (i.e., you can hack, but we won't support it). In this case, there are lost revenues (i.e., by not getting part of the ATT fees), which was not a factor with the AppleTV. Of course, these are offset through increased iPhone sales. Also, I imagine that Jobs sees value in having the most iPhone users in his "tent" and and has a history of telling big corporations "no", which may point to continued neutrality towards hacking.
