Unblocking an Iphone



I've heard horrifying stories about stores that offer to unblock cell phones from abroad (i.e., stealing parts, returning an older model, etc). Can anyone recommend a reliable store/technician to unblock an Iphone? Thanks!


I wouldn't waste any time with these company's that offer jailbreak/unlock services. There are two places to go.

PM if you have issues. It should be noted that if you have the latest firmware on your phone it is too late and there is nothing you can do until they release something that can deal with the new baseboard. If you haven't done this simply follow the gizmodo step by step guide and you should have great results. I've done this personally to several phones with no issues.

Firmwares are not a problem since the 3.1.3 can be jailbroken now, problem is the new bootrom.

Do you know if you have a "MC" model or not ? (if MC, unlock impossible)

Well, let us know a bit more about the model of your iphone (3G 3GS ?) and we'll help you
