    Illegal? Unlocking phones is NOT illegal.

    Anyway, one is done by the manufacturer and the other by 3rd party hackers.

    The thing is one is done by the factory, and comes ready to go, and the other you must do it yourself. And if you do, be careful and read a lot, so you do KNOW what you are doing.

    Isn't reading a blessing?

    Correct, it is not illegal to jailbreak or unlock.

    Apple can invalidate your warranty if you jailbreak and you may be violating your terms of service with your carrier by unlocking, but this doesn't mean you are doing anything illegal.

    The unlock is done by the manufacturer (Apple) - it is NOT set from the factory - it is generally set at the point of sale.

    Depends on what country and carrier your phone is from. Your carrier has to authorise the unlock and then inform Apple (who then update their database to allow your phone to be unlocked)
