Actually no, you might be mixing up unlocking with jailbreaking.
What did you get for the 17$?
I unlocked my phone for $17. Meaning I bought the iphone 5 at ATT's contracted price ($199) but now I'm able to use non-ATT sim cards with it as well.
Yeah, I mean what did you get for it? I thought unlocking was simply done with software too?
This phone + LTE is sooooo fast!
Me thinks by Apple designing hardware and developing software and creating the chip in house gives them an advantage that others don't have. Maybe you tech savvy guys know better.
The chip was likely produced by Samsung.
Edit: blairh is viewing this thread again.
Someone else built the chip but it was designed/developed by Apple and not a third party
You really don't understand how this industry works do you? That or it's more useless trolling. Either way.
Can't you guys let blairh respond? Jesus...
I think the last time a software unlock was available was for the iPhone 4 running a very specific baseband. AFAIK, for the 4/4S/5 there's only two ways to unlock, a SIM interposer (which is buggy and also costs money) or paying someone to unlock your IMEI number.
Apple basically has two lists on their server, a list of phones that are locked and a list of unlocked phones. What the ebay seller did was move the IMEI of my phone from the list of locked phones to the unlocked list. Then when I connected my phone to iTunes it checked my IMEI against the lists and verified that my phone is now unlocked.
If I am not mistaken you can call ATT and let them know you are travelling outside of the US and want to be able to use your phone, then they unlock it for you and you are done.
(With verizon the rep told me only the 4s could be unlocked b/c the 4 doesn't use a sim card and cant be used outside of the US...stupid rep)
This isnt true, unless you are done or almost done with your contract they wont unlock it. I had to pay applenberry to do it for me.
The local RadioShack had iPhone five size cases in stock. So I now have this very anonymous looking thing on my phone, which along with the Newton wallpaper makes it look like completely another device.
At this point it's apparently hard to find good luxury cases for this phone. I'll probably stop by Barney's to see if they have any leather eyeglasses cases that are small enough to be a good fit.
I had them unlock my 4s in August.
Can someone link the video of the iPhone commercial again, I'm on my phone and looking for is a pain.
The video with the " one black employee"
