The software released by iPhoneSimFree was delayed time after time. They knew that as soon as they released the software it would be cracked or a new method would develop. Within a few hours of receiving the software the iPhone Dev Team came up with their own solution and have released it to the public.
I can personally say that I was with them every step of the way and did everything that I could to help release a free unlock to the public. A few others and myself were on irc working on our own solution that cracked iphonesimfree’s method. We were on our last few steps and the iPhone Dev Team released the news.
You can find the guide on Harro’s website to unlock the iPhone using software for free. I will also post it here in case his site becomes unavailable. I can confirm 100% that the unlock works. I have done it myself and am now able to fully utilize my iPhone.
