    I've been keeping up with the iPhone unlocking saga and it seems iphonesimfree.com has finally started selling wholesale licenses to unlock the iPhone with their app. Unfortunately they only sell bulk licenses, starting with 50 @ $34 each. I'm guessing any company that buys these will sell em with a hefty markup so I thought I'd turn to the forums to see if there's any interest in the unlock.

    I'm curious to see how many people are looking forward to this, but more importantly would be willing to pay to get it. If there's enough interest, maybe we can get a purchase going? I'd be willing to front the cost and then just distribute on a first come first serve basis, with no markup of course. (Maybe a dollar or two to make up for PayPal fees).

    I will definitely get the software.
    There is now way I'm paying for a new contract
    with at&t. I'm planning to get an iphone in the next
    2 months so hopefully by then the software will be
    free of charge.

    I'd definitely be interested. Maybe get in contact with Arn to start an official MR unlock reseller. It would be a good way for MR to make some money, buy some unlocks and resell them for $5 profit.

    like you said, companies would be putting a very high markup on the software

    Donate to the devteam

    Why don't you better give the money to the people that will be able to give you the unlock for free? Instead of giving it to the $ minded...:confused:

    I agree. As much as I want to know about a working unlock solution now, i'd rather contribute to those who plan on releasing a legit software to the public for free than some scammers who "only accept bank transfers". Especially when the free dev team release is imminent...

    I'm already on T-Mobile, so yes I might be interested. I wonder if you "need" to have a data plan in place in order to use. I would only use the web part at home I suppose, since i have no data plan in place at this time.

    I may just wait for revision 2 to come out (of the iPhone)
