    As everyone knows, the $600 Apple iPhone is designed to run exclusively on AT&T's cellular network, as well as the occasional Wi-Fi hotspot. Hackers decided that they didn't want to be forced into buying a 2 year contract from AT&T, and worked day and night to get the iPhone to run on alternative networks. Finally, we are seeing some progress. Croatians, using a particular SIM card (SuperSIM - V1, U types), a SIM read/writer, a Silvercard, and a particular software suite, succeeded in making the iPhone run on T-Mobile's European network. The hacking software works on both Mac OS X and Windows computers. The only thing lost with the hack is YouTube functionality However, considering the limited library available on the iPhone's version of YouTube, The Inquirer does not consider it that great a loss.

    Is that technically illegal?? Hacking "your" property the phone...

    Considering Apple signed the no compete agreement for the first year, and we the consumer didn't...

    OHNOES a method for my madness?!


    I bet this would be legal.

    Apples agreement is completely irrelevant to what you wanna modify it to.

    However, your carrier may not be prepared to be handling an iPhone.

    Eh I had ATT/Cingular until they pissed me off by calling me 2-3 times a week and trying to sell me new services... I asked them to remove me from their calling list, I was told by 12 people that they can't do that....

    So I said---- You can no longer provide me with the service I require I'm terminating my contract. *heh way out of the $200 early termination fee, because at that point they violated the contract breaking it*

    Now sprint...... And that means no I-Phone for me :(
    Unless someone can make it work on a PCS network

    im in the same boat as you man. I don't think that the iphone will ever work on Sprint, someone told me it can't run on the service because sprint dosen't use GSM.

    You shouldn't need to hack and crack a phone to gain function.
