    I would love if we could overwrite the IEMI number that's sent to them with a string of our choosing

    Tried the hardcoding method.

    I've got it to send any number i want.

    With an hexa editor replace %@ to any 2 digit number.


    You can do this to stocks and weather apps.

    This is how they know exactly how many iphnoes have been unlocked. total # of IMEIs minus the number of IMEI's that have contacted the stocks/weather pages and were never activated

    The bad thing about this is they konw exactly which IMEIs have been unlocked or at least bypassed activation. Hopefully, they can't do anything further with it.

    Sure, but starting now, they're not gonna be able to know the modified stocks-weather's iPhone-iTouch that is connecting to them and sending real IMEI.

    uhh...wouldn't it be simpler to just to subtract the total no. of iphone sold to the no. of iphone contracts taken???
    and yes, apple knows all the IMEI's that were never activated...they don't need the stock\weather app for that
