I know, the iPhone is getting really old lately since everyone I know has one now. BUT, we can still laugh at all the stupid hacks you can do to the iPhone.
Check out how you can unlock the iPhone by cloning the SIM card. This might actually be useful for any cellphones that use a SIM card.
Senad, who has previously been heavily involved in the Digital Satellite scene and worked in many projects for Digiturk Cryptoworks, revealed to us that the hack is very real and can be accomplished using a simple simcard reader/writer and software. The Sim-Clone hack enables people to use all the functionality of an iPhone in Europe, with both incoming and outgoing calls, as well as SMS and edge internet. ‘It was only a matter of time’, said Senad, known by the online hacker community as ‘Deepdark’.
P.S. On the sidenote, the iPhone is SLOW! It’s on GSM network and so much slower than Sprint or Verizon. My suggestion is wait until Apple decides to switch to CDMA or at come up with a faster broadband technology. On average, using cellphone speed test, the iPhone came up about 4-5 times slower than my Blackberry and Samsung PDAs. If you want, I will prove it to you with a video…(well I bet there’s a bunch on Youtube already, let me find some…)
