So yeah, The Dev Team, MuscleNerd most importantly is not saying a word on the unlock iPhone 4 baseband 2.10.01 / 3.10.01 situation. People on the other hand blaming me for giving them the New Years Eve Date. Well, first of all, just to be clear I am not the one working or making the unlock. Secondly I am just spreading the word, giving some hope and updating all those who have been waiting and stuck in this situation for over 3-4 months now. You all know about the reports of a possible Ultrasn0w solution on Christmas or on New Years Eve.
So, the things are not working out for MuscleNerd and the latest tweet from Sherif Hashim was to wait. According to him the unlock iPhone 4 solution will come right after the tests and the whole development. If it didn’t come out on New Years or on Christmas that means its not ready yet.
Now, many of you are asking about the legitimacy of the websites which offer unlock options. Here is what I think:
1. Yes it is possible to pay your carrier some fee and unlock iPhone 4.
2. Not all websites are legit.
3. Yes, you can contact the websites and ask them about the procedure. (if you can get me procedure details I can confirm its legit or not)
4. Do not waste your money on any site or trust anyone you are not sure of. Ask experts and talk to us before just throwing your money on an unlock solution.
5. You JUST can not unlock an iPhone 4 on AT&T Network by asking or paying them any fee. Only Ultrasn0w can Unlock iPhone 4 on AT&T Carrier.
6. There are no softwares or Ultrasn0w alternatives for unlocking iPhone 4. So do not download or try or pay for such softwares.
So there you go, the very last option is to pay your carrier and get yourself a factory unlocked iPhone 4. What they do is they take the fee and register your iPhone 4 IMEI with Apple. So, the next time you connect it with iTunes, it automatically recognizes it and you can then just use any SIM and enjoy a factory unlocked iPhone 4. This has no bandwidth restrictions, even if you are on 2.10.01 / 3.10.01, iOS 4.1 or iOS 4.2.1 you are free to use any SIM.
So, the best way to do this is contact your carrier (Vodafone, O2, etc…) and tell them about the situation and see if they can help you. Also, try to find someone in your city, there are people who actually do this. They will charge a few extra bucks but you can always claim your money back if they fail to deliver.
So, you can either ask your carrier or wait for a week or so for an Ultrasn0w solution. I will update you with that…
