    I am trying to find the Best way to unlock my iPhone to use overseas.
    I jail broke it first and thought I could use redsn0w to unlock it but it will
    not work with my band 4.12.02.

    So I looked for a universal unlocker and I found one called
    Sam but its kind of troublesome to use and you have to set
    it for each and every sim you use.

    Is there any easier way to unlock this iPhone that I have not
    thought of?.

    I even researched paying to unlock it using MyIMEUnlock.com
    without jail breaking through iTunes but Japanese SoftBank
    32GB models are not supported :(.

    Any ideas welcome :)

    SAM unlocks are great, but Apple killed the option to make new SAM unlocks a long time ago.

    If you cannot find a grey market vendor who can do unlocks of Softbank phones, then you are stuck.

    Sell it, buy an AT&T iPhone which are cheap and simple to unlock.

    Do you know if Rogers, FIDO phones just as easy to unlock as AT&T phones? Apple Canada sells them factory unlocked but they're very expensive.

    Look on ebay yourself how much fido and rogers IMEI unlocks are.
    I believe they are up there too like $100-150.
    AT&T iphones unlocks go for $3.

    Here's a softbank unlock on ebay.
    Pretty expensive.

    Cheapest rogers fido unlocks.

    Copy/Paste from my existing post (above)

    What's so difficult to understand? Dhlizard has already answered your question.

    "SAM unlocks are great, but Apple killed the option to make new SAM unlocks a long time ago".

    In other words SAM doesnt work to unlock any more.
    Apple patched that hole months ago.
