Oh snap, non-E3 2008 news? Yeah, I’ll keep it short, though. Apparently some crafty Portuguese speaking fellows managed to unlock the iPhone 3G. The method appears to be similar to the original iPhone unlocking methods which mimicked the original SIM card’s International Mobile Subscriber Identity.
I have no idea how complicated this hack is, but I’m sure those of you who’re willing to spend $499.99 CAD on a iPhone will be more than willing to put in the time and research exactly how to pull this off.
For the curious, the mentioned Portugeuse video is below.
