Practically, what is the risk of unlocking?
I have a corporate ATT blackberry with unlimited data plan and international roaming (GSM/WDCMA only). Normally I just call-forward to my personal iPhone (also ATT), but when I travel internationally I have to take the blackberry. Unfortunate, because the BB is a pile of crap.
If I unlock via ultrasnow, I assume there's no problem swapping sims. Jailbreaking alone won't let me swap sims (right?).
But, after reading the "reasons not to hack iPhone" thread, I have some reservations about taking an unlocked iPhone to a place like, say, China or Russia. Am I just being paranoid? How would a "malicious 3rd party" load some bad juju onto an unlocked iPhone remotely?
Hacktivating and contract
I want to buy a new 3GS 16 gb but I dont want At&t because of the data plan. I want to use T mobile which i can use after unlock but then i cant cancel the contract or i gotta pay ETF. I want a new phone to unlock. How do I bypass contract or ETF or Data Plan. Is there a way to cancel the Data plan for a cheap price or free. I want the Ipohne with a plan for max. $50.00 a month or cheaper, Plus im selling my nano for a 100 bucks. And if there is a way to get the 3GS in 30 days WITHOUT returning the phone that would be great too .
Thanks to all.
