Like i said on the phone, the "phone" part of it cannot be unlocked as of yet. If you want a glorified ipod which costs 500 and doesnt do much else then go for it.

Currently, Rogers does NOT offer the iphone, so, for this phone to work on rogers it would have to be unlocked which would mean it would also work on Fido.

I lived in the states most of the summer, and got one right when it came out... Ive been keeping very up to date with the unlocking news. Its at the following stage right now: It can be hacked to work with a non-iPhone AT&T plan in the states, can be used with SIM card cloning devices anywhere but in North America, and most recently has been "unlocked" to work with any SIM cards anywhere by using a programmable SIM attachment (TurboSIM) in conjunction with a physically modified SIM card from your provider (following thorough reprogramming/hacking of the iPhone and SIM).


So it very possibly could be used with a Rogers/Fido SIM card if whoever has the phone has already reprogrammed it with the TurboSIM already, you would just have to cut up your current SIM card to fit into the phone with the adapter. The TurboSIMs are sold out everywhere right now, it was just discovered that they could be used to "unlock" the phone a few days ago... basically its programmed to trick the phone into thinking that you're actually using an ATT SIM instead of that of another provider.

As of now there's no actual unlock available for the phone.



Hope that clears some stuff up for people.

LOL... I've been lurking around Been extremely busy though. Are the meets still going on? I wanna come out see all you guys again.


As for the iPhone stuff you can just check on here:
http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=123


The guys who run this site are the developers that are pretty much working day in/day out on the unlock as well as other hacks. Forum also has links to third party applications, install walkthroughs, etc.

I will let you know Lindsay, how long is he/she going to have them for? Are there quite a few that they have or just a couple?

Hey, you can count me in if it's possible to test before paying?

Thanks,
