iPhone 3G with OS v3.0 can now be unlocked
The iPhone OS 3.0 update has been downloaded by over 6 mln users in the last several days since its release. It brings along a number of new functions, but also locks your device if it happens to be unlocked. While this isn´t much of an issue to people using first generation iPhones, owners of the iPhone 3G had to wait until today. Now, you they can get their iPhone 3G unlocked with a program called ultrasn0w. However, people with iPhone 3G S handsets will have to wait a bit longer. But hey, they can capture and edit videos, have voice searches and a compass, so let´s not get overly greedy, right?

Instructions on how to install ultrasn0w are available through the link below. Happy unlocking.

What is the advantage of unlocking your iPhone? Anything I can't live without but don't know it?

In my case I use a local GSM carrier and have unlimited everything for less then $90 a month AFTER taxes. Just nice to be able to not be constricted to their costs of data packages etc...

Ultrasn0w will allow those that use the iphone on t-mobile or other GSM providers to upgrade to 3.0 and not be locked down to just AT&T.....this also increases the resell value of the iphone now too......
