image

iPhoneSIMFree‘s retail partners have begun sales of iPhone unlocking software. Companies in four countries — iPhoneWorldwideUnlock in Australia, 1digitalphone In Germany, iPhone4arab.com in Saudi Arabia and Wireless Imports in the US — have licensed the software from iPhoneSIMFree and are offering the software online. The iPhoneSIMFree software includes an application that is installed on the iPhone, and once run it contacts the company’s servers via Wi-Fi to complete the unlock. While the software is currently effective, neither iPhoneSIMFree nor its retail partners provide any guarantee of compatibility with future iPhone firmware. Wireless Imports, currently the only US-based retailer of the unlocking solution, and is accepting pre-orders for $99. [via Infinite Loop]

Who’s going to pay that this month to find out some patch is released the next that makes my iPhone stop working.

Holding out until unlock is guaranteed. I saved my old unlocked phone so I can use this when I travel overseas.

Interestingly, the Australian sites (2 of them) are offering the unlock (from anywhere in the world) for US$49 & US$50.
