A 17-year-old from New Jersey has unlocked the Apple iPhone from AT&T's network, claiming the phone can be used with a sim card from any other network provider.
George Hotz, of Glen Rock, demonstrated that his iPhone is currently running T-Mobile's service in a video he posted to YouTube.
I saw him on MSNBC today .... he soldered 2 wires and ran some software and then put in his TMobile chip. called his house. This opens the phone to all netwoks.
Yes he voided the warranty. He still doesn't have a straight software to do it.
Apple shares moved up 3% after that.
Those NJ kids are pretty crafty !!
