Anyone wanting to unlock their mobile phone no longer needs to take a walk down Tottenham Court Road, or visit a car boot sale, because SIMable is a little device that will “trick” your mobile phone into thinking it’s no longer tied to the mobile network it got shackled to.
Ever so understated, it’s merely “a technology breakthrough in mobile phone unlocking”. It’s an ultra-thin chip that attaches to the existing SIM card, and works with most models including 3G phones. That’s a lot of Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Motorola, Samsung, LG, Sharp, Siemens, Toshiba, BlackBerry, MDA, Sagem, Alcatel, and SPV phones — well you get the idea.
No, it won’t work on the iPhone. C’mon, be serious.
The company stress that SIMable ensures that the phone retains 100% of its functionality, and because it doesn’t interfere with the handset they claim that it won’t invalidate the manufacturer’s guarantee.
It costs £16.99 and comes with a customised cutting press for creating the perfect fit.
