IPhone 3g Hacked: Ultrasn0w Carrier Unlock for Os 3.0

Have an iPhone 3G running OS 3.0? Ready to pick your own mobile carrier? Well now you can release your iPhone 3G from its shackles.


iPhone Dev-Team’s Ultrasn0w carrier unlock hack works on iPhone 3G models, but doesn’t yet work on the 3GS. It’ll take you just a few minutes to go through all of the steps needed to unlock your iPhone, and free it from your current mobile carrier.

To make it work, you’ll first need to jailbreak your iPhone using redsn0w or PwnageTool 3.0, then follow the instructions over on the iPhone Dev-Team website and your iPhone 3G will be free at last. For now at least.

As is always the case with such PWN3GE tools, you take your iPhone’s life into your own hands. Don’t blame me if you brick your phone, or if AT&T sends their goons over to your house to make you pay up on your 2-year contract.
