    Default iPhone 3G / 2.2.1 / 02.30.03 unlocked!!

    Hi, a friend of mine bought a new iPhone 3G 16GB, gave it to me to unlock it, it got firmware 02.30.03 baseband 5.9 so i told him its a hopeless case, you need a turbo sim.. theres no way to downgrade/unlock or even run yellowsn0w on it...
    he accepted that until another friend toke a look at it, toke his iphone.. brought back the next day fully unlocked and working with the same baseband version.. same modem firmware.. it wasnt even jailbroken!! theres was no cydia no installer.. i was totally shocked.. restarted the iphone.. toke the sim out and in.. tried another sim.. the iPhone was really working like it was officially unlocked from Apple.. and his friend didnt charge him.. he said its a gift.. when i asked this guy that unlocked it how did you do it.. he said "i dont know, i kept playing with it, restoring, dfu, restore, dfu.. and suddenly it showed service!!".. maybe he really didnt know, or maybe he just dont wanna tell.. he said he have more 3 iphones that didnt work for him and still locked..
    im just wondering.. if every one knows theres no way to unlock iPhone 3G/2.2.1/2.30.03/5.9 how did this happen without even a jailbrake!!!
    maybe someone can tell me what to look into this iPhone? see something changed inside it? some special software?! some numbers?! i dont know.. maybe this can help every one to understand how to unlock it!!!!

    The only way to unlock BB 2.30.03 without a 'piggyback' SIM officially. Which country did the phone come from and which network was it locked too?

    im not sure, but he bought it from Saudi Arabia, but it might got there from any where in the world..
    i know that if it came from Australia you can unlock it using some code.. but:
    1- this codes costs money to get, and they guy charged him nothing.
    2- im sure it wasnt from Australia. maybe from the US, or from the Saudi Mobile company that officially sell iphones.

    The hardware method is exceedingly time consuming and difficult making prohibitive for most.
    Where in India are you? How long does it take? How much do you charge? Can people wait while you do it or would you take their phone away never to be seen again? What guarantee do you give and what happens if you mess it up?
    It is not impossible but I would certainly want answers to all those questions before I even considered it.

    Luckily I have BB 2.28 and am already using YellowSn0w so don't need the service but if someone has a locked phone and is either going to Delhi or knows someone who is going to Delhi then your answers are encouraging.

    If anyone is in any doubt that it can be done n350Z posted a lonk to Unlocking iPhone 3Gs--the Vietnamese way | Crave - CNET which, although a bit out of date, does show what's involved.

    Good luck
