George Hotz (17 years old) has figured out a way to hack Apple’s iPhone to release it from having to use the AT&T network. It involves cracking the iPhone case and using a soldiering gun and some special software. Although I’m sure AT&T is not elated with this news, I wonder how many folks will be willing to crack open a $500 device and mess with a soldiering gun.
Also mentioned is a SIM chip from Australia, though the release date on the chip is not yet announced.
