Brando starts selling iPhone 3G SIM unlocking tool

Owning an iPhone 3G is uber-cool nowadays, but being tied down to one network (especially if its 3G network blows) is not. How do you overcome this? You unlock your iPhone.

Once your iPhone is unlocked, you can use it with any other mobile network you prefer. And this is exactly what Brando’s iPhone and iPhone 3G SIM card unlocking tool lets you do. At least, that’s what we’ve been told.

Brando starts selling iPhone 3G SIM unlocking tool

All you have to do is just insert the special SIM card into your iPhone or iPhone 3G’s SIM card slot and it will automagically become unlocked.

However, it’s worth noting that this method has not yet been fully tested to work on all mobile networks, so you might want to think about it a bit before pressing that “Buy Now” button.

Once you’ve finally made up your mind, though, you can buy it through Brando’s web site at $30. We wish you luck!

    all you need is an any-network sim adapter. It works with the iphone 3g and also lets you update when new releases are out.

    No, this doesn't work. I purchased one and here are the issues:

    1) – it physically will not fit into an iPhone 3G, even when cutting a notch in the SIM card to make room for the little chip. It appears that the chip is a hair too wide and the SIM card won't lock into place.

    I tried putting the Brando into an old model iPhone. It fits, and you get the AT&T logo, but the iPhone complains of a new SIM and demands that you connect to iTunes to activate the phone, where you are promptly told that your SIM is not from a valid company.

    You need to use a very small piece of tape on the side that is being inserted and slowly push it in. It will work. I have already tried it using T-Mobile but I had to disable 3G as it will not be available in my area until October 1st. Without the small piece of tape it kind of snags going in. The tape may unroll slightly if you need to remove the SIM but be patient and slowly insert and/or remove the card.
