iPhone 4 Carrier Unlock Finally Here

The wonderful people of iPhone-dev Team (or I think they're called just DevTeam now) has realeased their iPhone 4 carrier unlock.

What this means is you can unlock the iPhone 4s you've purchased from any locked countries like the U.S.(with baseband 1.59). iPhone 3G and 3Gs also benefits from this release which unlocks phones with basebands 04.26.08, 05.11.07, 05.12.01 and 05.13.04

As an excerpt from their blog post:
Version 1.0-1 of ultrasn0w works for:
iPhone4 baseband 01.59
3G/3GS basebands 04.26.08, 05.11.07, 05.12.01 and 05.13.04
(If ultrasn0w doesn’t show when you search Cydia, add the repo:  repo666.ultrasn0w.com)
Quickest solution to unlock your phones is to visit www.jailbreakme.com which uses an exploit to jailbreak your device, and once you get the Cydia app, download (or add the repository if you havent) ultrasn0w. Restart and enjoy carrier freedom.

Perhaps another implication of this with the iPhone 4 market now is that those people selling iPhone 4s at outrageous prices would be compelled to drop their insane charges. Since people could get any iPhone 4 and have it unlocked, the only special purpose of a factory unlocked iPhone 4 would be that owners would not need to wait for the Dev Team to release a newer version of the unlocked (which they'd probably release a day after a new firmware/baseband update).

Update 1:

I was just checking how much an iPhone 4 currently costs in the black market. Seriously. 70k! This is insane!

  1. Nice information . SIM lock indicates that a mobile is locked to a paticular Network. The process of removing SIM lock is known as unlock. Unlocking can be done by several ways. For an iPhone, remote unlocking method is an easy way to unlock it without jailbreaking. It is available at
    Mobileunlocksolutions.com . Once, sim lock gets removed from an iPhone, you can easily swap to other GSM networks.
