Having an iPhone is surely delightful but using the device for any carrier you want to is not that much easy. There are things you have to do if you want to get them. First of all, you can have a device from Apple itself which is unlocked but you have to spend good deal of money for that. Second option is for the jailbreak as they have this Ultrasn0w tool which performs the unlocking in your device. This also is not that much smooth because you have to do it again once your baseband is changed or the firmware is updated.
Now there is another official company which is offering a permanent unlock for all the devices including the latest iPhone 4S. Cut your Sim is offering you to pay $169.99 and get your device unlocked. It will remain unlocked even if you change your basebands. So if you have some bucks lying around, this is a nice option so far.
Lets have a look on what the Cut Your Sim has to say:
We are very happy to announce that we just started a new service to unlock all iPhones from AT&T USA including the latest 4S.
This service is 100% tested by us and working but since we have only been able to test it for a short period of time we will still call it a beta service.
Price for this service will be 199.99USD. Turnaround will be set to 1-20 days due to the high demand of this service.
The solution we offer is a permanent solution. Jailbreaking, or unauthorized hacks are NOT required. This unlock will carry on forever, you can now update your phone to the newest version without worrying about waiting for an unauthorized unlock to be released. The unlock will work with any iPhone version, and any baseband version, no need to worry about updating to the latest version anymore, your phone will be unlocked forever!!!!!
100% Guaranteed to Work! This method is 100% Guaranteed, and the only time we will offer a refund is if you provide video proof that the phone did not get permanently unlocked with our method.”
Well that is what the company developers have to assure but what makes it more legit is that some of the key members of jailbreak community have tweeted about it. They are giving you a green signal that the methodology this technology is using to unlock your device is legit.
Musclenerd tweeted: “If you are going to try it, just do due diligence on which well-established service to use (I cant recommend once over another)”
Chronic tweeted: “it’s actually legit, they are whitelisting the IMEIs, not totally sure how it is working”.
So while it looks as if it’s legit, any repercussions from using this method on your iPhone are still relatively unknown at this time.
One thing that can be helpful is that you can backup the activation auth (NCK) with the SAM tool which is available in Cydia.
The service is live and you have to send your device to them and after 15 to 20 days of residence time, you will get your unlocked device back to you.
So what are your plans? Have you planned to give it a try as it is legit. Share your thoughts and leave the comments in the comments section. Stay happy and stay with us.
