    Seen this SIM Unlock for the iPhone "http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.10834" anyone used these on US iPhone (1.1.2OTB) on orange in the uk??

    been using it a expensive iTouch atm but would like to use it as a iPhone and the likely hood that a software based solution coming out in the next 2-3 weeks is slow. So has anyone used this before? good deal if it works better value then TurboSim etc....

    Any help will be great

    I didn't check the link to be honest with you, but if it's a hardware based (you cut your sim and put it onto a chip, pop it into iPhone, done), then you're fine. If you have an OTB 1.1.2, that means you have bl4.6 and hardware unlocks are the only thing you can do. Remember that you may need to install iWorld so that your iPhone supports your sim card. Bottom line, if it's hardware based, it'll work, there are now 20 or more different brands of hardware sim unlocks, however they are all based on the same technology.

    Just out of curiosity, what are the chances that one of those hardware unlocks will stop working in a future update of the iPhone software? I just bought an iPhone last night and I'm kinda worried about that.
