    Question Hardware unlock or xxsim?

    I was wondering.What do you think that is better for your iphone:
    open it up and stop cutting those sims
    or
    keep it closed and stress free?

    I can spot only one + in the hardware method: you dont need to cut your sim(s).
    It can be very helpful if you travel and change networks often.

    What is your opinion?

    I just don't feel confident enough to actually open my phone so I opted for a TurboSim. Been very happy with it since
    iPhone week 46 FW 1.1.2 BL 4.6 unlocked with GUNLOCK => TurboSim is now in the trash
    Carrier Optus Australia, everything just works!

    You need a 4th option:

    4.- None, I'll wait for the Software Unlock.

    basically i opened this poll because i am in a dilemma:
    if i want to unlock my 112 otb phone i have to buy a 100 euro turbosim or pay 100 euros to get the hw unlock done in a shop in my town.

    And i was thinking what is the best option in longterm...

    best option in long term is to do it your self but anyway HW option is still better then xsim, having 3.9BL is kinda priceless, there will allways be software unlock for it until they will manage to JB it regulary...

    i wanted to wait for the hardware unlock but when i found out a local cell phone shop was selling next sim v4 for only 40 USD i said "forget the waiting" and now i'm as happy as can be with all my features available

    if turbosim is too expensive, just buy a next sim...it's working without any problems, so i think its the best way to "unlock" a 1.1.2 otb...

    PS: you get the card for 50bucks ($)
    iPhone 1.1.2. OOB unlocked and running on 1.1.3
    ZIBRI is the best!

    I agree but you still have to cut your sim card.If you have multiple sims its going to be a lot of cutting
