Good News has hit for those countries where 3G iPhone was not officially launched. Original iPhone took good time to get unlocked, however, its 3G variant, 3G iPhone was unlocked in only its first week. MobileCrunch reports quoting a Brazilian newspaper Folha de Sao Paulo that the DesbloqueioBR has hit won the race and became very first one to unlock 3G iPhone.
A relatively simple procedure was adopted to achieve this. They altered handset’s firmware and installed a special card add-on to the SIM chip, that’s it. With this configureation DesbloqueioBR claims that the 3G iPhone can now connect to any carrier.
In 22 countries, only one service provider has been authorized to sell 3G iPhone. All carieers are subsidizing the Apple’s newest gadget, resulting long term contracts and relatively larger monthly prices.
DesbloqueioBR says that it has plans to charge between 250 and 375 dollars to unlock an 3G iPhone. Other unlocks are sure to follow and so are the stories that cover them.
