    Sweet. You're part of the crew now :D

    And both Mac and Windows versions of QuickPwn, for all intents and purposes, are the same. Kinda.

    I like many others bought the iPhone on a contract and I am relatively happy with the service. I would like however to be able to use it outside of the country in which I bought it.

    I have been thinking about unlocking for some time, but I am a bit apprehensive. Some of the problems I have heard and the fact that I don't have access to wifi to complete the unlock.

    Trying to work through my issues, as it were.

    jailbreaking and unlocking are different things though.
