As a warning to iClarified users the Dev Team does not recommend the use of proxy SIMs.
Weve been monitoring the whole SIM-card unlock proxy-SIM situation. This involves using a chip that is attached to your SIM card (with a small modification to your SIM) or sometimes a small PCB soldered inside the phone. These sim mods so far seem very very very questionable. Zf has found that they use trickery of the GSM and UMTS network that is considered highly illegal in most countries and they rely on sending bogus IMSIs and various other nasty hacks to obtain service on your iPhone. A couple of our members have worked out how this all works and well try to publish our findings soon. DevTeam recommendation: Steer clear, dont use!
Thus if you can possibly wait for a software unlock you would be much better off...
