AT&T iPhone 4S unlocked accidentally, no jailbreak needed - read the full textThanks to a glitch in the latest iOS 5 version some guys over at the Macrumors forums were able to unlock the iPhone 4S. The procedure doesn't require any software to be downloaded nor does the phone need to be jailbroken. Now there is a dint in this plot, however, as the unlock seems to work only...

i think guys you haven't realized it's already unlocked, i bought one from apple store, i told him i'll activate it at home, so as long i got home, i insert my international sim card, the iphone just works fine and there was no problems in detecting the network... i think if you buy it and you just use att, it will send request to unlock it, i wish people start to stop using AT&T until they fix there stupid way.

And the best part is "Google is giving you a free tool to convert Flash ads to HTML5".

They are very nice after all. Taking in mind google was the only main reason Flash Mobile was here....hehehe.

So if Goolge kicks Flash out this will be more that just a nail on Flash coffin...And all the devices that use HTML5 are the winners here.

There will be no need to "Flash Devices" so, no iPhone users will care if iPhone will use Flash or not :P

Slowy all the sites will change to HTML, and Google is starting to do that...

And Apple will NEVER include Flash since THEY WIN choosing HTLM5 from the start...and they don't need to include Now that flash....is a slowly bleeding to death technlology....:P

Now is a matter of time JavaScript go away from the HTML5 and the HTML5 control will be complete...

Who cares just another fault with an apple product.Also whats the big fuss about html5?.its a shame that a phone that claims to be everything cant do the most important thing it should be doing.Its took 4 generatiins and still theres no flash support and html 5 is miles away.All this crap about slowing the net down is bull.if youve got a decent enough spec phone or even a dual core one then whats the problem?.Its just the usual apple users making excuses.

With none of the putting it in aircraft mode and ripping the back off either, just take out the SIM tray, swap SIMs then put it back.

I guess if you like this feature, you should upgrade to the next version of iOS. Apple will surely close this loop hole in some future version of iOS.

another easier method is available...buy iphone 4s off-contract from at&t...remove the at&t sim...insert a sim of your choice and connect your phone to itunes and you will get the message "your phone has been unlocked"

p.s. do not switch on the iphone when the at&t sim is inside it...then this method will not work...
