    it's not about how many iphones Apple sell because they make more money on the call charges which is why the phone is locked in the first place.

    In the UK the phone costs 269 and the contract costs a minimum of 640 on top. Apple take a minimum of 162 on the 18 month contract itself and a massive 40% off all call charges after.

    One iphone = 431 (minimum over 18 months) for Apple or $894

    It's seems likely that Apple will have to give up the fight on this 1st generation of the locked phone eventually, especially in Europe but with profit margins higher on call charges than on the phone itself I have no doubt that Apple will try every trick in the book to continue making money from call charges.

    I suspect that with the contracts between Apple and the worlds networks as well as the money these networks have invested in the iphone, Apple will not just release an unlocked iphone to the world just like that.

    I have a feeling that the 2nd generation iphone will be locked and have some additional 'must have, can't live without' features that will render the 1st generation iphone as obsolete. By the time the 2nd generation iphone is release I suspect the 1st generation will be officially unlocked only for the cat and mouse game to start all over again with the 2nd generation iphone and the 3rd and 4th and so on.

    But this is all speculation, only time will tell.

    That's a good point. In very short time after the image was release we have good (and bad news).

    If you read carefully the first post by pspsully he does not say it's impossible to bypass the check. It will be very hard, but maybe another bug is found that will enable the write with the current or no secpack.... maybe...

    the question is, if Orange FR already is a Default Provider in 1.1.2 Firmware. Adding UK and Germany have been the reason for appearing as 1.1.2

    I think Orange FR is default provider that exists in FW 1.1.2. But said that I could be wrong being a noob . But Last I read on this forum, US AT&T, UK O2, DE T-Mobile, FR Orange, IT TIM are the default providers.

    Lightbulb Packet and USB port sniffing

    I have been thinking about this unlock that apple provides.
    From what I can tell, the IMEI number is sent to apple. They then do something that when the phone is synced with iTunes a code is sent back to the iPhone thus unklocking it.

    Would it not be possible to install some USB packet sniffing software (USB Monitor) so we can see what the iphone sends over the USB port to itunes and some network packet sniffing software that can see what data is sent to apple.

    We could then use the same software to monitor what happens when the unlock code is sent to itunes and then the phone.

    Do the same thing with a non unlocked phone and we can start to see what differences there are.

    From there it is going to be a mathmatical puzzle to write an unlock app where you can enter your IMEI number and it send an unlock code to the phone.

    We know this is possible just look at the serial generating applications that exist for unlocking windows or any other application.

    The oher thing we would have to protect is that the phone may be reporting it's state to apple when it's synced with iTunes. Again this can be got round with some middleware that checks what the phone is sending and modifying the strings before iTunes gets hold of them.

    I could be totally wrong but surely it's worth a try?
