iPhoneSimFree Officially Begins Sale of iPhone Unlock Software

I have yet to see this on Techmeme or elsewhere – feel free to Digg it up! It looks like as of this morning, iPhoneSimFree has announced their list of vendors, which have begun to take orders for the iPhone unlocking software. This is a pure software unlock that is set to release your iPhone from Cingular to use on any Cellphone network.

The software begins in the US at $99 from Wireless Imports. However, from their T’s & C’s it says:

“Please be aware you are purchasing software that will be installed on your computer which will unlock your phone via wifi. In the event Apple comes out with a new firmware upgrade which will lock your phone again you hereby agree that Wireless Imports nor its vendor will be held liable or responcible for unlocking your handset again. If your handset becomes locked you will be charged to unlock it again. “

Hmmm…$99…for something that isn’t even guaranteed will work for much longer, I think I’ll pass for now. Based on the above text you will need to pay $99 each time they release an update to bypass any of Apple’s efforts to re-lock it. I’m willing to almost guarantee that will happen, too, so purchase at your own risk. It also looks like software that’s to be shipped – not sure if a downloadable option will become available.

You can see the list of vendors selling the software at:


For me, I think I’ll wait for a T-Mobile version (that supports 64-bit) iPhone.
