iphoneSince the last few months, various groups have declared that they have come up with an idea of unlocking the iPhone, thereby enabling it to use a SIM card of any connection provider. What should be kept in mind is that this is only a part of the story. The GSM radio band is used by the iPhone for communication purposes. It means that an iPhone will only be usable with any of those providers which use the GSM network. AT&T and T-Mobile in the U.S are two examples of such providers.

In the month of August, a few hackers showed a method of unlocking the SIM cards and then they sold the software to the resellers, who then sold it again to the public. Another group has also emerged with a different way of hacking. It has done it with the aid of some free software, which enables the unlocking of your iPhone within an hour, without you having to pay any charge. This article will demonstrate to you how the whole process works.
