    Lightbulb Realistically, how long will the unlocking take ?

    Whilst I appreciate the efforts, how long are we talking about until you guys manage to complete the task ?

    Days, weeks or months ?

    Thanks !

    Nobody can say if unlock will be possible.

    I thought one of the earlier status reports said - We know how to unlock the phone -

    Here: We know how to unlock the phone. July 7, 2007 2:19AM Eastern Update. First paragraph, 3rd line.

    it will take exactly 3 days, 2hrs, 57mins and 5 seconds. no. just be patient, you'll know if it happens. reverse engineering someone else's work isn't like reading a book from page 1 to page 100, you can't put a date and time on it. it could be 2 mins from now, it could be never.

    the best thing to say really is, if you want it to happen faster, donate to the developers. they can take a lot more risks if they know that after they stuff one phone, there is another ready for them to attack.

    money always = getting the job done faster.

    and yes, in the end, unlocking may not be possible. but they're giving it a go for you and the rest of us anyway. you really gotta respect that.

    well unlocking will be possible, just looked at all the hacked software, including osx, windows, etc etc. the main wuestion is the time it takes, however if it still hasn;t been unlocked by the time it launches in the UK in december i think it will be soon after,
    since the UK iphones will be on O2 (i believe that was the most up to date info) the software for simlock on the iphone will be different? and from the differences i think will be easier for them to figure out how unlocking works.

    Waiting for the iphone to be unlocked in December would totally contradict all the confidence that was all over regarding unlocking the iphone in the beginning. But I guess many underestimated Apple
