So, either my google-fu is not as strong as I thought it was, or this is one of the most closely guarded secrets in the iPhone "scene". So, I'm searching around for IMEI unlocks, and all I can find is paid services. Cool, I can get around that witch a bit of google-fu. Yeah. not this time. It seems like these pay services have the knowledge to unlock your iphone by "deactivating" your iPhone in the itunes database. Neat, and I have verified this by having it done to my sister in law's phone. It works. I even called AT&T, but they refused to unlock my phone due to it not being in contract, and me not being the original customer that bought the iphone. Yeah it sucks, but whatever. Yes, I know I can kind of get around it by changing the APN settings, but that throws me an "invalid SIM" error. I even jury rigged the sim to my old android phone. It works, so I know it's not the SIM card. The reason for this rant is because I KNOW there has to be a way for me to do this myself, if these no name companies out of nowhere can set up shop and take orders online. Does anyone know about this process? is it really as big of a secret as it seems?
