iPhone 3G and a SIM proxy December 20, 2008

I now have a iPhone 3G and because it is imported from USA and therefore locked, I can’t use it in Uzbekistan. But there is a workaround to this problem – using a SIM proxy. It is a hardware chip which is inserted between the phone and the SIM card. The proxy constantly tells the phone that the SIM card is from AT&T even if it is not. This way the iPhone works but has some drawbacks – it sometimes loses signal and GPRS/EDGE/3G connection is unreliable.

Recently a hacker group called Dev-Team announced that there is a software unlock coming to iPhone 3G – you simply install a modified firmware to the iPhone and it works with all operators around the globe. Without any chips and drawbacks. The hack will be released on New Year’s Eve.
