I just came across these steps in Wired to unlock your iPhone:
1. Update iTunes and Iphone app installe
3. Select “simple mode” and install Cydia
*If anything goes wrong you can reverse the process using the iTunes System restore.
**I don’t own an iPhone. I use a Blackberry because I would rather accidentally leave a Blackberry lying around then an iPhone. There’s no comparison in terms of privacy, encryption, and the confidentiality of your data. Maybe this will warrant a future post…
