The Risks of Unlocking Your iPhone

Several new techniques to free your iPhone from your previously un-free-able AT&T contract have now been introduced. Unfortunately, these methods will either put your iPhone at serious risk or cost you much more money. Some individuals will question the legality for these methods, there is however no constitutional law prohibiting unlocking phones. The sole doors AT&T and Apple is going to be knocking on is the ones that distribute software to unlock the iPhone in hope of creating a quick buck.

The very first "official" unlock (and therefore it absolutely was the initial publicly published unlock) were introduced over a popular blog, where a 17 years old student took the iPhone apart and made a couple of software and hardware tweaks. Once his method was tested, he revealed the steps on August 23rd, 2007. Unfortunately, his method requires soldering knowledge, additional equipment and immeasureable concentration and patience. It resulted in many iPhones being completely destroyed, with one even sparking and melting itself along the way.

New "safer" iPhone applications have recently been released who promise to unlock the iPhone after one simple installation. Unlike the risky hardware unlock method, some companies are charging approximately $100 for that application, with no proof how the method actually works and will always work after Apple enforces updates to iPhones whenever they're attached to iTunes.
