There are a lot of things to like about the iPhone. After all, it’s a shiny gadget that lets you do a whole lot of things on the go. But Apple and AT&T can be a bit controlling when it comes to the software side of things. So while unlocking an iPhone is not for everyone, those brave souls who decide to get their phone unlocked quickly find out that there is a whole other side to the iPhone that can’t be experienced on a locked iPhone.
Apple has done its best to make it extremely difficult for iPhone crackers to come up with solutions that let others unlock their iPhones. But the community is strong, and we see working unlocking solutions on a consistent basis. iPhone 3.1.2 has been a tough nut to crack, but now you can unlock your brand new iPhone with Blacksn0w and BlackRa1n. If you have bought your iPh0ne or iPod Touch just recently, you are going to need the latest version of Blacksn0w to unlock your phone. BlackRa1n does allow you to jailbreak your phone easily as well and is available for both Windows and Mac.
Should you unlock your phone with the above solutions? That’s really your choice. The grass is not always greener on the other side. There can be a lot of headaches involved with the process. Keep in mind that Apple and AT&T are out there to make it extremely difficult for jailbreakers and unlockers to get away with what they do. You may be able to get cool features such as tethering on your iPhone before everyone else, but you may lose out on a lot of other things in the process. For some it’s worth it but if you are a newbie to iPhone, you may want to think twice before unlocking your iPhone. When you are ready to do it, Blacksn0w and BlackRa1n are there for you to check out.
