Promising unlock in the works for iPhone 4S users

If you're a prospective iPhone 4S user who's patiently waiting for an unlock, you may get one soon. According to Musclenerd, long time member of the iPhone Dev-Team, they've got an unlock for the iPhone 4S in the works that looks promising. This is exciting news considering the iPhone 4S is currently the only device that can't be unlocked with Ultrasn0w.

Crazy Thanksgiving weekend! Very promising 4S unlock is in the works (Not i4, just 4S..that's crazy part)

Musclenerd posted the above image with his tweet about an iPhone 4S unlock. We'd still need a jailbreak for the iPhone 4S in order to unlock it. A jailbreak is also rumored to be in the works as well. You can help the jailbreak community find one faster by sending your crash reports to the Chronic Dev-Team via their new Crash Reporter tool as well.

Any of you out there holding off upgrading or purchasing a 4S due to the need for an unlock?

Promising unlock in the works for iPhone 4S users


My uncle stay in canada. Whats the cheapest way to get an iPhone 4S 64GB ?
By Cheapest i mean th cheapest & ONLY DEVICE !! NO PLANS ETC
Like $400 or $600
Like is thr a way to get it on some carrier and then cancel the contract
or are there shops in canada where i can get it for 400 to 500$ for 64GB
bt it should be new.

I did not know iPhone 4 (not 4S) could be unlocked. good news if the article above is correct (that 4S is the only one that can't be unlocked..implying iPhone 4 can be).
Happy :)

This is great news. I just hope they find the Jailbreak method soon & they make the ...sn0w program for Windows PC's, since many (myself included) do not have a Mac.
I went from the iPhone 4 8GB to the iPhone 4S, since it didn't matter seeing as how I couldn't get the iPhone 4 to Jailbreak after several attempts. I suppose Apple used the same security on the iPhone 4 8GB as they use on the iPhone 4S.

I guess you meant iPhone 3gs which can be unlocked if iPad baseband is flashed int it, not iPhone 4 though(only with the old 01.59.00 baseband)

You want to make $85 hourly and $7000 per month like me just working on laptop for few hours! Would you like to be your own boss!Opportunities like this don't come by often. Don't let this one pass you by! ead about it on this web site Read this site (=====

What about the JAILBREAK for iPhone 4S? Shouldn't that be the First PRIORITY??? I don't get it, why do this before Jailbreak? That should be at the forefront, from everyone I talk to, that is all they would like to have is a Jailbreak.
I am thinking about trading my iPhone 4S for and iPhone 4 just to be able to Jailbreak.... Is this CRAZY?
