    Default TurboSIM in UK stores? (+ other questions)

    Hi all,

    4 Questions:

    1. Does anyone know any shops on the high street in London where you can buy a turboSIM?

    2. Has it been CONFIRMED by the dev team that no OOB 1.1.2 iPhones can be unlocked using the software?

    3. Has anyone tried the turboSIM method to unlock a UK iPhone?

    4. Do we cut out the gold chip on our existing sim card??

    Thanks for sharing the pictures.
    BTW, can you use your vodafone sim card with regular mobiles any more?

    Thanks, but I'm not sure you anwered Q2 about whether the dev team have OFFICIALLY given up on a software unlock for OOB 1.1.2. Has this been confirmed anywhere?

    Also, anyone in London buying a turbosim in a store somewhere?

    Cutting the sim card like that will still let me use it without a turbo sim in other phones right?

    Anyone from UK got this to work with an iPhone?

    I dont think they have given up on it.. their still looking for ideas on how to maybe bypass the secpack checks etc... but at THIS point.. there is no software solution coming for a while.. as they need to wait for a firmware update, so at this point.. no OOB 1.1.2 iPhones can be unlocked with the new 4.6 bootloader

    I don't think they will give up. They keep working on it, but no one (incl. themselves) knows when they will find a solution. I believe it's just a matter of time.

    So, I think for people who can't wait (e.g. me), turboSIM or silverSIM is a choice.

    Hi,

    I know a place that is selling turbo sim in London . I think they are currently out of stock as i tried to get one the other day but they assured me its coming back into stock soon. They are not the cheapest bu tthey are the best in London maybe even in the UK.

    They also fixed my Iphone after i upgraded by accident to 1.1.2 from 1.1.1 and they also helped me the first time damaged my 1.0.2 and it was stuck in activation screen.

    The guys who answer the phone are sometimes very busy and stressed, but the tech guys who actually work onthe phones are brilliant and have always been able to sort my probloems out. However i never actaully get to see the tech guys ive never had anything returned un-repaired.

    They are in West kensington London and they also do a postal service.

    Mobile Repair Centre
    177a northend rd
    London
    w14 9nl

    www.mobilerepaircentre.com

    Hope this info helps.


    regards

    JJ

    Thanks jay_jay I'll check them out. Has anyone else heard of any other suppliers in London?

    If the dev team have given up trying it with 1.1.2 but are holding out hope for a later firmware then I'll just go down the turbosim route. It seems the easiest way to get a OOB iPhone "unlocked".

    I assume all the features (except visual voicemail) will work? Will the phone know it's got a T-Mobile sim inside or will it think it's an O2 one?
