Optus iPhone Getting Closer

July 19, 2007 — 3 Comments

TUAW has the latest on the quest to unlock the iPhone; apparently it will now work with pre-paid AT&T/ Cingular phone cards.

I’ll be in the States this time next week, and I’m seriously considering buying an iPhone, but the difference between dreaming and buying is still the ability to use it when I get home again…well to be more clear the ability to insert my Optus simcard in it and be able to make calls (AT&T global roaming rates are even worse than Optus’ rates so AT&T isn’t really a good option for me). Of course I could just use it as a glorified iPod, but I already own one of those. Hopefully some one will crack it in the next week, here’s crossing my fingers anyway 🙂
