If you look closely at the iPhone 3G here on the photo you’ll notice that the name of the carrier does not spell AT&T. Nope, that’s three letters, and it looks more like TIM to me. What do you think?
This is a picture of the iPhone 3G unlocked using a SIM card. A SIM card adapter to be precise. The method for unlocking the iPhone 3G with the SIM is exactly like that with the original, first-gen iPhone, which is, fooling the phone into thinking that it’s running under the official carrier’s network.
A brief statement from one of the Brazilian guys who successfully made the unlock goes:
Our procedure consist in using one SIM adapter to simulate a fake IMSI test card. Instead of the AT&T IMSI like in the universals.
So it’s time to thank God he invented the “International Mobile Subscriber Identity”, for if not then you wouldn’t be watching the video of the unlocked iPhone below. Have a look see.
