10 steps to unlock the iPhone

One smart 17 year old kid 10 steps One iPhone unlocked! And this is why walled gardens will never work! They are way too many good hackers out there ever ready to break any codes. Awesome stuff!

There goes the exclusive deal AT&T signed with Apple. I wonder how will this affect the exclusive European deals that the mobile operators had signed with Apple. Don't think it will have much impact as Apple's iPhone is too big a brand to miss. It will definitely help to draw new subscribers to them.
Below is a video clip of the smart New Jersey teen, George Hotz, who has shot to stardom by setting up a blog post and video about how he'd become the first to hack into Apple's iPhone, unlock it from AT&T's network, and use it on T-Mobile's GSM network -- which also means it could be used on any GSM network worldwide. It will be fascinating to see what happens to Hotz next.
