Iphone is not yet available here in Canada, but hacked versions can work with a transplanted sim card from an exisiting network phone.
I heard that Iphone has just recently plugged the hack that allowed this, is this true ? and does anyone know of a current workaround?.

Thanks
Greg

There's Problem with hacked phones!
See, the ant. are tuned to a specific area, for example, I bought a cell phone that you cant get here in the states, only available in the uk, problem is, the ant. doesn't get anywhere near as good reception as my wife's phone does. Its fine in the city, but anywhere else it sucks.

Neddless to say, I won't ever buy another hacked phone.

Which is worse, ignorance or apathy? I don't know and I don't care!

Supposedly Apple released a software update or patch that was supposed to render them unusable. Which is fine except that if its a hacked phone on someone elses network how is it going to get the update to begin with.. And I am sure it was cracked pretty quickly. Personally I have never understood buying hacked phones, too risky. Especially for that much money.

it's not that hard really to hack and if you want to undo it you can just undo it by installing a new OS.

this place could prove useful for you,

from what i recall 1.1.2 was supposed to be released just to prevent unlocking/hacking. i did the update and all i noticed is the damn thing freezes up alot more often, so i just did the downgrade back to 1.1.1 and it's back to normal.

i don't think you would have much trouble with the iphone there in canada, when i last went to vancouver with an old sony ericsson phone i had great reception, so i don't see why the iphone would be any different. it's still gsm up there too.

Do all the features on the hacked iphones work the same as if you had bought it from AT&T?

Aside from being on a non at&t wireless provider, I can't see the point. They are going on ebay for more than what it was costing in the store. I bought one for the fiancee the other day, along with 200 dollars worth of junk to go with it. Thats what she gets for christmas....unless there isn't a raptor under the tree. No raptor under the tree??? Oh wow looks like I got me a new iphone!

everything is the same, it simply makes more open as though it were actually a mini computer like apple likes to call it..

it takes just a couple of minutes to "jailbreak" it and they've got a new version of the ifuntastic app (v3) which allows you to "unshackle" the phone, so you never have to jailbreak the undo it as is required most of the time to install third party applications.

take a gander here,

The UK version does not support 3G only EDGE which is slow. Also to my amazement I'm told it can't send SMSes to multiple recipients!

It might look pretty etc, but Apple need to sort out the 3G support!

Requires a mac to be able to do the hack so that will have me not playing with it. It will work from the store the way it is just fine though if it was going to be my personal phone I would be finding a way to get the ifuntastic working. Looks like some cool tweeks for iphone users.
