iPhone Dev-Team Warns Against Unlock Scam

The iPhone Dev-Team is warning people about the unauthorized theft and sale of the yellowsn0w unlock.

Seems like “Jody Sanders” of the West Midlands, UK (who we mentioned in our release post) is at it again and is stealing our work and passing it off as his own, he has done this before and this scam was reported by the Guardian and also by us before and was also covered in a very very long thread over at hackint0sh forums.

We specifically restrict the commercial use of our software, and yellowsn0w is included in these restrictions. This dodgy geezer is selling our software to you at a bargain £19.99 he says:-



“We can now fully unlock the iPhone 3G for use on any GSM network for just £19.99 DIY (£49.99 in-store at either London or Birmingham) - just in time for the release of the iPhone 3G PAYG in the UK (available from Carphone Warehouse and o2).”

The iPhone Dev-Team is asking anyone with more information about iph*neunl*ckuk and Jody Sanders to contact them. They would also appreciate any legal advice or assistance.

But at least they don't take someone elses work and try to sell it as there own. You talking crap about them but you surely use what they have to offer.

archer1702, Please read before you post such a comment. It is perfectly legal to unlock the phone. The DEV Team is giving free software that does not infringe on any rights. What they are giving you is perfectly legal.
