My lovely wife gave me an iphone for christmas in the hope that
we can hack into it and use on the cellphone network here colombia.
It almost worked, I spent 10 hours or so searching and researching
and I found the best set of instructions at Iclarified.
The instructions were good enough to get my phone jailbroken in
about 2 hours, not including the time that I kept searching the interwebs
for the last piece of the puzzle, how do I unlock the sim card in a new
iphone with the new bootloader 4.6?
(it was interesting that last week I couldn't understand what all
the iphone bulletin boards were saying, unlock, jailbreak, 1.1.2,
bootloader, now I feel ready to do open heart surgery on my cell
It appears that I can't. not yet. unless I buy all the equipment to edit
a simcard, it doesn't look like it will happen until the next version of
iphone software comes out. or maybe never. That's really a shame, because
the iphone without a phone is almost worth the money, I can surf the net
on wifi, zoom around on google earth, and apparently there are a lot
of games to download. The camera is almost as good as my previous
digital camera, and typing is a breeze compared with keying in "wassup"
on my cell phone.
If this thing worked as a phone I'd happy with it, the high cost would be
worth it as I zoom around through playlists and contact information.
Unfortunately, not yet, I'm stuck carrying my old ipod and my crappy
phone. Come on Steve Jobs, set my cell phone free.
