The iPhone Dev Team has released anySIM, a GUI-based iPhone application that allows users to unlock the iPhone for use with any SIM card. The app simply needs to be copied on to the phone and executed — it is fully automatic, and therefore makes unlocking a much easier process for those users who lacked the technical experience to take advantage of previously released, more challenging unlocking methods. anySIM is available as a free download from the iPhone Dev Team’s website.

when you say AnySIM, does that include Nextel SIM cards or just GSM ?

How do you copy the application onto the iphone? Does this enable the iphone to be used as an unlocked ipod? Thanks

I thought the next Firmware update will most likely error any unlock application of this kind out.

Any shareware for the PC?

It’s FREE.
Even the app to transfer it to the iPhone is free.
Donations for their hardwork is welcome of course.

Don’t mind donating. Wish it were available for the PC soon (just Mac at this time)...

Maybe I can get a hold of a friend’s Mac.

I hope these hackers are able to get i phone users the CDMA people. Cuz thats a long wait due to the exclusivity.

Do we need to activate iPhone, first ?
And then, use this unloking app ?

The iPhone is GSM it will never be unlocked to CDMA. The only way you are going to be able to run a iPhone on CDMA is IF Apple make a CDMA iPhone!
