There are two stories of iPhone unlocking, one is hardware based and another software based.

Apple iPhoneA New Jersey teenager has unlocked the iPhone, opening the way to Apple’s iconic mobile telephone being used by non-US networks. The Apple’s iPhone is currently sold only within the US and it can be used only with AT&T, the iPhone’s exclusive network.

A teenager named George Hotz made headlines on Friday as the 17-year-old from New Jersey informed the world of a little project that he and four others have worked on. Specifically, how to unlock an iPhone and use it on T-Mobile’s wireless network. Hotz posted instructions on his blog.

According to his blog, all you need to unlock the iPhone are:
–First, an iPhone
–Some trusty case opener tools
–A soldering iron
–Fine pitch wire
–An unlock switch
–A Red Bull energy drink

This news spread around the same time as the news about announcement of the launch of iPhone into European networks.

There is another news about a software unlock by a six man team from iPhoneSIMfree.com.

Again: we can confirm with 100% certainty that iPhoneSIMfree.com’s software solution completely SIM unlocks the iPhone, is restore-resistant, and should make the iPhone fully functional for users outside of the US.
Individual per unit licenses will be available starting next week. We are currently opening up our mail for bulk purchase enquiries of 500 licenses and above.

So, anybody from anywhere in the world can get an iPhone to use under any network.. soon!


Update:
There is one more news that, three hackers named Dubbi, Ofir and Eli have claimed to have unlocked the iPhone independently in Israel. Read about this on textually.org

    Recent updates by Apple to iTunes have left a lot of those that unlocked their iPhones in a very compromised position. I tried calling a few companies here in the UK just after the release of the iPhone (actually about a full week after) here and none of them were claiming to be in a position to unlock an iPhone… this cat and mouse game is likely to continue andI wouldn’t want to be sitting nervously with an unlocked iPhone waiting on Apple’s next update…. here’s a good article on unlocking iPhones
