iPhone 3G Unlocked with SIM Card Adapter?

iPhone 3G Unlocked with SIM Card Adapter?

Posted July 15, 2008 at 2:32pm by iClarified · 15031 views
Breno MacMasi and Paulo Stool from desbloqueiobr.com.br claim to be the first to unlock the iPhone 3G using a SIM Card Adapter similar to TurboSim.

They say, "Our procedure consist in using one SIM adapter to simulate a fake IMSI test card. Instead of the AT&T IMSI like in the universals."

While these results are not confirmed they have posted a video showing their solution in action...

Did anyone notice that he had visual voicemail active? showing messages? A non-authorized carrier would not have this ability!

Not quite. TIM Brasil is the carrier they are talking about. TIM is an italian company- yes. but they expanded to brazil, thus Tim Brasil. Someone in brasil has called them and they confirm it to be a Turbosim method. How it was achieved has not been released. N41

in almost every country in europe (except from switzerland, italy and i think france or belgium) u have to sign up for a mobile plan. but, according to the name on the carrier in this movie its phones from italy, which are carrier free and unlocked from the begining. So, i guess its fake

it's just a fake: on the back of the iPhone you can see the CE logo. That iPhone was brought in Europe where the 3G is carrier free (except Switzerland). So FAKE!
