The Source for the Unlocking Cat and Mouse games
We can only blame ourselves for financially supporting such a ridiculous product that has 3 levels of security[activate, sim specific orientation, network lock]. This is like trying to have sex with 3 body condoms on[ reminds of the scene from Naked Gun 2 and 1/2]. Had the hacking community just waited a few months and ignored the product, the sales of iphones would have flopped royally forcing Apple to surrender their codes and we would now see factory unlocked units being offered along with nice price cuts from the apple store. I'm glad i got rid of mine and feel bad for all those thousands waiting to unlock their 1.x.x.
To summarize, Friends don't let friends buy iphones.
