    Thee is no full software unlock... but if its 1.1.2 out the box you can jailbreak them to use as iTouch. You can also get yourself an ***Sim that should make them work, but they're anything between £10 for a crap one up to £100+ for the original TurboSIM... PM me if you need any help when you get them back, see what I can do to help.
    Good luck!

    I dont think it was necessarily a "scam" but unless he knows something that the rest of the world doesnt, then he cant fully software unlock it.

    He could very easily hardware unlock it for you, or use a *sim solution, so you will most likely have an unlocked phone by the time you get them back. It just wont be software unlocked.

    looks like it's just a jailbreak from the prices he has quoted on the site, so unless you have a *** sim or an AT&T contract you just be using them as an ipod touch.

    very simple, he will downgrade your bootloader, then software unlock your phone

    He's quoting £138 for jailbreak and Stealth sim or £39 for jailbreak, so yeah i'd say he's taking the piss out of people! £100 for a Stealth sim thats some mark up and i'm betting its not an original one!

    Ever heard of punctuation?

    Apple
    sucks.
    Microsoft rules.


    TurboSIM-like methods? No way.

    - Unlocked Week 47 1.1.3 iPhone, baseband 04.04.05_G.
    - Bought in Minneapolis, MN;
    - Currently on TIM carrier.

    I'm not here to find help. I'm here to help others and give back what I've learned from Hackint0sh.
