Is that fact that they are going to bring out a new I phone in the summer unlocked or just hear say?

I only say this as I'm tempted to go and by the phone tomorrow and this chip to use with my orange Sim even though this has not been confirmed with a UK phone.

If you like the phone then get it, don't be one of the losers that sits on the fence always waiting for something better to arrive.

And yes, there is a refreshed IPhone on the way that will address some of the issues with the existing model. There are also some firmware releases on the way for the existing model.
#12
Err, has someone confirmed that this works with a UK SIM? Don't just assume that it will as the UK & US SIMS are completely different - yes completely different and this may be developed for the US SIM.
#13
well someone on deal said its 1.1.2 which is the software on it not the sim. as it will do the same job, as the chip is only reading the sim nothing else.and your purchasing it from hongkong but deal are an ace site never had any problems with them.

No what i meant was that unless CPW are selling it with version 1.1.2 Firmware it wont work.

This sim card should work with the current CPW and o2 handsets. Currently they are 1.1.2 i think that will stay the same untill the use up all of there old stock and get onto the 1.1.3 ones, which should not be soon. Im currently using an unlocked handset (on vodafone) from the US. I also have an o2 handset unlocked to all o2 sim cards. I will test this card with the UK one.

All sim cards are the same.. Uk and US ones are no different.

ORDERED -

- Product Upgrade Note: the 6th generation will be used instead of the 5th generation cards at no additional charge to customers, when the 5th is unavailable. The 6th generation cards spot more features than the 5th and the same compatibility levels.
#16
I bought my iphone a couple of days ago from the O2 shop and it was a week 42 handset (4th and 5th numbers of the S/N). The new 1.1.3 firmware came out a week ago so any iphone with a build week up 52 will be the 1.1.2 firmware.
Most of these Sim addons do require you to jailbreak your phone first (not a process for the faint hearted)...see here for an idea of what is involved http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=461
Once jailbroke you can use any O2 sim (payg or contract).
The Sim addon is usually stuck to your sim card of choice (any network) and inserted into your jailbroken iPhone and it tricks the phone into thinking it has the proper contract O2 sim.
This sim card addons have been selling for a lot more but now that firmware 1.1.3 has been released it is expected that the new firmware release 1.1.3 can be disassembled to produce a full software unlock for firmware 1.1.2. Its worth noting that if you are thinking of buying an iphone then the 1.1.2 version would be the better choice ie buy sooner rather than later.

That the Viewty can use Skype will come as news to most Viewty owners as the Viewty does not have wi-fi. In fact certain versions (ie Orange) dont even have the Google or YouTube apps that LG boasted about in their marketing.
#18
Hmm. Do the UK and the US now share the same baseband? I thought that it was v3.9 in the US, which can be cracked or v4.6 in Europe which cannot, so far. Or was the release of firmware 1.1.3 all the info required to crack the 4.6 revision of the baseband?
#19
just ordered one, can anyone post a link to a tutorial for this specific card. thanks

He meant thant on Three you can get MSN. They have a tarif which allows you to use Skype over 3G at no extra cost (ie no cost for data other than in your monthly line rental). My mate has it on his N73 and it works extremely well. He chats to people in the use for nout! Three do some good deals, but i think theya re all minimum 18month contracts, which is rubbish.

its only available on 3G as its free with them and you get unlimited Skype
#22
Both the US and the UK have 4.6 baseband. These Sim attachments will work with both the UK and US iphones, on 1.1.2 or below and 4.6 or below baseband.

Don't upgrade to 1.1.3 at the moment, and an OTB (out the Box 1.1.3) will not work with this either so far
#23
My brother is in US at the moment, and i asked him to get me an iphone. Does anyone know if it will be a 1.1.2 or 1.1.3. The update has only come out last week, so surely OTB won't be a 1.1.3 yet or will it??

Also can you tell from the box what week phone it will be, so if it's a 1.1.3 he can return it.
banned#24
@WildTurkey, look at post 17
#25
But that's the uk store. Also what numbers do i look for in the serial number??
#26
Hi Mr Turkey, you need to go to somewhere like wallmart, etc. Don't go to an Apple store as they will probably refresh stock to the newest firmware.

Smaller stores will have older phones. You need something around week 50 or below.so you look for the digits on the serial number at the back of the box. I don't have my box/phone to hand but i think its the 3rd and 4th or 4th and 5th character on the serial number

EDIT: In an ideal world you want something week 46 or before, as they will be on 1.1.1 and you can software unlock

i thought they only sell iphones in Apple stores?? sorry i'm a big noob to all this
#28
only ppl sellin iphone will be apple stores and at and t you can tell by serial week of manu
#29
nope, they sell them in walmart, AT&T stores and Apple stores

edit: don't quote me on that. I'm a little restricted to what I can look at at the moment, but can't really see any information confirming that
#30
Wal-Mart sell AT&T network phones, so I presume they do sell the iPhone. The AT&T stores certainly do. My friend also kindly brought me back a big bag of jolly ranchers. I'd advise your friend to do the same. Oh, and some reese cups, although you can now get them here in selected stores. The reese smarties are good too by the way.
#31
unlock to O2 sim only, so still we can't use T-mobile or Vodafone with this attachment?? please can someone tell a bit more?
#32
This card fools the phone into thinking that ANY sim card is an AT&T card, so you can use any card.
though I heard this is no use for 1.1.2 otb in the UK (USA only) thought they are on the same baseband so god nows.

also - iPhones are limited to AT&T stores and Apple stores in the US, but there are a lot of those stores.
#33
thanks for the quick reply!! so still have to wait for something to unlock 1.1.2 UK OTB. :(
#34
waited one month already!!! still on my desk, can't use it.
#35
Hiya,

Not totally true ext, if you activate and jailbreak by following these instructions
http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=461
Others available though

Then buy one of these : Ebay item number 180207093950 (Direct link below)

ANY Uk sim will work (Edit :not 3 as this is 3g sorry forgot)

Hope this helps

Ps I paid more for that next sim as I got it 2weeks ago ;( I use mine on Vodafone
#36
thank you very very much for the information!!!!! I am going to "brick" my 1.1.2 tonight. cheers!
#37
Oh and the process for activating and jailbreaking takes a bit of time, any probs ask as I encountered loads of stops whilst doing mine.

I have bought one of these £18 ones also as I think it will unlock the 1.1.2 OTB Uk version (for a friends iphone)
I 'll report back when it arrives
#38
this "270205560711" is also NEXT X-SIM, cheaper, £20 delivered from Hong kong, will this work? they claim this is for 1.1.2 OTB.
#39
The boffs are currently trying to unlock 1.1.2 iphones now as they were waiting for 1.1.3 to be released. When they do it will be free on the web!

The problem buying these turbosims, is that you won't be able to upgrade the software to 1.1.3 or any future updates!
#40
Yes ext it looks the same type of thing, I can't see any feedback about this product but his feedback in general looks good. And very cheap !
The one I got came from Ireland and took about 5days to get to me
