It is a semi sim unlock in that it allows you to use any o2 sim "pay as you go" or "contract"
I scoured the net for this. I had almost given up and decided to wait for the proper AnySIM 1.2 release that works with the upgraded baseband firmware.
Then I found your article.
I can 100% confirm that this procedure works. I have unlocked and activated two UK O2 iPhones and am currently using O2 contract sims in them perfectly fine.
Every part of the phone appears completely operational, including EDGE support in selected areas :)
sorry but i'm such a noob,
i'm having trouble at step 4 with the cannot connect error i downloaded the file and moved it to opt/local/lib but still get the error!!
any help would be greatly appreciated
The opt/local/lib filepath was the file i downloaded from the link
Should i do this with the sim card in that i got with the iPhone or my pay as you go O2 sim?
So this does work?
full work and has not problems in the end of it?
i got around the error from step 4..
the opt directory is hidden in leopard so i followed these steps, an old post but seemed to work for me.http://forums.macrumors.com/archive/.../t-112682.html
It has worked for me, fully under windows, (i'm in the uk) although i wish i hadnt accepted the O2 contract, but not to worry, i actually get a better signal than T-mobile at my house. There should be no reason why this doesnt for for he people in the UK who bought their phones from O2 and co
