    Im aware that in france you can buy iphones unlocked and apple uses itunes to unlock iphones by their IMEI number Right ?

    Well say if i got hold of a french unlocked iphones IMEI and changed my UK non-activated iphones IMEI to that french 1 would itunes activate and unlock my UK iphone ?

    I know changing the IMEI is illegal its just something which ive been thinking about :rolleyes:

    Most likely not. You could however just unlock your UK iPhone for free with any of the multitude of software options available.

    Ye i know about the other sim unlock solutions i was just curious about weather you could use a french unlocked IMEI to unlock because as far as i am aware of you would not have to worry about apple releasing a software update to stop us from unlocking our iphones and it would be cool if i didn't have to reactivate and unlock after an update :D
