iPhone 4 Unlock to be Available Soon
It was bound to happen sooner than later, and now iPhone 4 has been unlocked. iPhone Dev Team member planetbeing announced the following today on Twitter:
Looks like I now have an unlocked iPhone 4.
The tweet was followed up with a few pictures displaying the iPhone 4 with a carrier unlock activated (shown).
There is currently no word on when this iPhone 4 unlock will be available to everyone, but the iPhone Dev Team usually moves pretty quick so it’s safe to assume it will be relatively soon once the kinks are worked out.
The iPhone 4 that is available in the USA is tied to the AT&T network. This makes the unlock news particularly exciting for US customers who want to use the newest phone on another carrier, but they’ll still have to pay the full iPhone 4 price without contract (starting at $599) before being able to use the phone on a network outside AT&T.
