    Okay, so tonight I noticed that my new iPhone 3G had a "Slide to Unlock" button on it. Well, just out of curiosity, I slid it and now I have an UNLOCKED iPhone 3G! This is awesome! The iPhone is so much more useful now! Check it out, I can use the Internets, and watch movies... gosh this thing's cool!

    Try it out! It's amazingly simple.

    Yeah, it's a joke. I chuckled to myself when I did it. I though others might find it mildly amusing.

    Like I said, nice try. ;)

    Perhaps other people haven't already seen this one. It'll be new to them... Kind of like a pre-owned joke, eh? :p

    If this doesn't make it to the front page, I don't know what will. :)

    Haha! I hear all this crap about unlocking the 3G and while I never really thought about it until tonight... that's about the extent of software-unlocking right now for the average 3G owner. Hehe.

    That's not the same... you used a hardware key right? I did it all with software. ;)

    I have unlocked everything then :D

    My iPhone
    My front door
    My car
    My back door
    My back window
    My bathroom door
    The toilet stall at work
    A jail cell

    Oh the list can go on and on, but unlocking the iPhone is the best :D

    with X10 and an iMac, I can "software unlock" all of these (except the iPhone, which I just slide my finger on it :D)

    Three out of ten is awfully generous. This 'joke' was so lame, it deserves less than zero ... ;)

    Hehe... I don't know. I was jailbreaking my 3G iPhone and when it rebooted, I was greeted with "Slide to Unlock" and I thought... wow, how convenient... I have to share this with my friends on MacRumors.... so I did.
