    It already happened, hold tight and you'll have an unlocked iPhone for free by the end of the night.

    I personally didn't mind paying $50 for the unlock. I'm out of the country so it's costing me good money to use the phone as it is. It's nice to finally be able to use a local SIM card.

    However, the way they've managed everything is a joke. Constant delays, crappy service. If you've waited this long, I say wait a little bit longer and hope for the free unlock.

    I just hope that they don't release the free unlock before the resellers are able to get their second batch of unlocks out. Now that would piss people off.

    not likely. it could be a while. the way i understand it is that they found a way, but they still have to put together the software for us to unlock.

    from what I've observed in the ipsff channel this morning through about 5 minutes ago, it has been tested and confirmed by at least 10 devs and shouldn't take too long before the cleaned up source is released. Obviously this won't help those that dont know how to compile things, but we should see a dumbed down end user solution within 24 hours.

    I'm fairly sure it's an iPhone version - not to be run on OSX or Windows. But to be run on the iPhone.

    Pretty much works the same way as the one from IPhoneSimFree. Exploits the same flaw in the baseband to write to it. And also uses the dev teams work to do this :rolleyes:
