We’ve mentioned the SIM-hacking tool before, but now it’s been enhanced to do the unthinkable – unlock the iPhone 3G by just tweaking with your SIM card a bit. Here’s what you do and how it works…
“(1) Cut a tiny hole in your SIM using our free cutting press, (2) Align the SIMable chip to your SIM card, (3) Insert into your mobile phone and start talking.”
SIMable apparently also works with such fashionable new phones as the Blackberry Bold, so however complex your network conditions and contract status may be, it could help. It also reverts your phone back to its original state once you’ve removed the cut up SIM, so no one invalidates any warranties.
It also seems to be completely legal.
