    The issue is the phone DOES acept the SIM and receive call's and SMS's but the two apps crash, effectively disabling other SIM card use.

    Apple need to fix this, as I am sure it is not acceptable to pay 100 Euros to unlock and then to have to Jailbreak and install iWorld for 90% of French unlocked phone users.
    iWorld is - as of today - a quick and dirty solution for this problem. It prevents the iPhone from crashing phone and sms app but does not solve other problems (using of data services to name one). In addition to that it installs > 1000 symlinks in one of the iPhone's directories and cause a "your iphone runs out of space" message.
    There are better solutions, driven by forum member timschuerewegen. The technical problem is described in a 77-page thread here. The reason for the iPhone behavior is described here:

    timschuerewegen is working on a better solution, described here:

    Reading the complete thread from page 23 takes time but gives deep inside knowledge about why and how

    i am going to france in january and planning to get one there. just let me know if it will work in germany.
    You can use (as of now with french free iPhone 1.1.2 firmware) simcards from USA, Canada, France, UK, Italy, Germany, Japan, China out of the box. If you need to use different you (today) have to downgrade/jailbreak/upgrade/jailbreak/activate to alter the setting. I guesS (better say hope) Apple will have updated the firmware in January when you travel to France.

    OK


    Just got off a LONG call with Apple France. They are blaming Orange, and acknowledge they know of a problem, but claim the solution must lie with Orange, I went round and round (this call had been escalated to a supervisor) pointing out the logical flaw - how can Orange be responsible for software that crashes with a Greek SIM card?

    However at the end, she said a solution is coming in a few days. This could have been bullshit to get me off the phone ...... or maybe a fix is coming.

    She admitted that this problem has been officially known this week, and I suspect they DO need a fix, otherwise they need to refund the 100 Euros to people.

    I was put upwards fairly quickly, so it seems they do know very well this problem.

    1. Geohot released a NCK brute force tool. This is a neutral news and may or may not help for out of the box iPhone 1.1.2 unlock.

    2. Out of the box iPhone with firmware 1.1.2 (or we called them the newest OTB iPhone.) cannot be unlocked at the moment. They are having the bootloader 4.6. Old iPhone have the bootloader 3.2. You can use TurboSIM to trick your iPhone and use all the functions completely. But, this is not considered as unlock.

    3. New iNdependence 1.3.1 can help to jailbreak out of the box iPhone 1.1.2, but not the unlock.

    4. If your iPhone have bootloader 3.2 (that means your iPhone originally comes with 1.1.1 firmware or lower), it can be unlocked even upgrade to 1.1.2. Take a look of the iPhone ultimate guide page here. It is all tested under iTunes 7.5.
    5. There are some news saying 2 theoretical exploits found in OTB iPhone 1.1.2. But now it is confirmed this is a very neutral news that may not help for OTB iPhone software unlock.

    6. OTB iPhone 1.1.2 can be unlocked ONLY next new firmware 1.1.3 have the new baseband. That means if the new firmware 1.1.3 is having 04.02.13_G, that means no luck to obtain the “seczone” which is essential to software unlock OTB iPhone 1.1.2.

    7. When will be the next firmware 1.1.3 released? God knows. Rumours are saying the Saturday and apparently it’s a bullshit. Now, wait and see.

    8. A recent video showing a German guy unlock OTB iPhone without using TurboSIM. I cannot confirm it is true or not, but apparently he asked money for solution and you guys should not pay. Other peoples said this guy actually asked some basic hacking techniques in the forum. That means he may probably don’t know how to do it.

    9. France’s official unlocked iPhone is confirmed to be work for other foreign country’s SIM card. That means after you bought France’s official unlocked iPhone, you can use a US SIM card or whatever SIM card you like. iLounge confirmed this. France’s operator Orange, the one who sell the official unlocked iPhone, should work for any carrier all around the world. Only the visual voice mail may not work properly because it depends on the carrier. Another user kevinbr also confirmed this. Hence, iPhone Atlas’s news is WRONG and INCORRECT.

    so its just that if you travel around and would like to use a lets say german simcard in south africa it wont work? (=roaming) or does it mean just all other simcards from other countries?

    thats also my state of knowlage from today. i just didnt get it why he said "90% of french Iphone users...". i dont think that they are selling 90% of their iPhone to other countries :p

    and why are you hoping (for me) that apple fix it until i travel to france as long as it works for me in germany

    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.

    Just Simcard from countries other than from USA, Canada, France, UK, Italy, Germany, Japan, China wont work. Once you use a simcard from one of those countries in your iPhone you may travel worldwide and use em. But: If you travel to Switzerland and want to use a prepaid Orange-CH simcard, it wont work. I own simcards from 7 countries from which 4 are not in the list of supported.

    so: I am not just hoping for you. did not read you are going to travel to germany cause german prepaid (or contract) simcards will work anyway.

    hope that helps
