i actually know this kid – we are part of Counter Strike Clan. One more thing – i bet he is either going to be like an einstein or kill himself . Yes he is kind of crazy and one of his best friends (who also happens to be a mutual friends) commited suicide last fall

I’m green on what an unlocked phone is and what its end result is…?

I think, being a technonerd myself, that a locked phone means that you can use only the carrier you contracted w. (ie. AT& T).

This kid spent 500 hours and used a soldering iron to defeat iPhone and AT & T.. Read article in New York Times today.

He did a great job.

But these guys did it without having to solder.
