coondoggie writes "Everyone needs a hobby I guess. A New Jersey teenager said today he has hacked the lock that ties Apple's iPhone to AT&T's wireless network, a move that now lets him use it on T- Mobiles network. Experts say T-Mobile is the only other U.S. carrier compatible with the iPhone's cellular technology. George Hotz, 17, posted the hack on his blog, said the unlocking procedure is complicated and requires skill with both soldering and software and takes about two hours to perform. Hotz said: "So if you follow these steps, you should have an unlocked iPhone. I'm sorry about how hard they are to follow, but someone will get them to work, and simplify them, and simplify them more. Hopefully a software unlock will be found in the near future." http://www.networkworld.com/community/node/18731"
