    I am visiting in Thailand at the moment and have seen shops selling a 3g unlock service using a turbo chip. They still require a cutting of the original US / Canadian SIM chip. Question: Does anyone have any experianceswith this method od unlocking? Is the story true that there are unlock chips available that do not require cutting? The service here costs 2000 Bhat (US$60)

    Thanks!

    Dont go with Turbo Sim. There are many other such devices that dont require any sort of cutting. And Turbo Sim have been reported to get stuck in the sim slot and possibly break off inside. So I suggest you dont do it.

    And yea, as I said, there are chips that dont require any sort of cutting. Ask around, you should find some!

    Hi Bogdan! I bought an iPhone four days ago and got it to unlock using a turbo sim. I have removed it several times because the iPhone ran out of battery (damn GPS). As Aliandro says, and i confirm it, the turbo sim is quite bad quality, and i personally find it quite unstable when it comes to sticking on the signal. Quite unreliable? Any other thought? Has someone tried the simlibre (www.simlibre.com)?

    Thanks, Fran.

    And you, too, Enricus.

    One such adapter is currently found under our iPhone Hacks/Development section. Cant remember which one. Check it out, before I get the confirmation whether to delete it or keep it.

    Yes it is trus that there are "no cut" sim adapters, although I find the corner cut easier to insert in the iphone.

    I have unlocked many iphone3g with the simlibre. Remeber; you need to activate the iphone FIRST (i.e. you can't just get one in the US and then insert the simlibre and off you go1) Please read full instructions here http://www.simlibre.com/simblog/inde...mo-desbloquear

    If you need help let me know.

    hi all I found this link: http://www.iphone-sim-unlock.com


    This sim card you don't have to cut, its easier and more practical. They have also a video demonstration of how to do it on this faq page: http://www.iphone-sim-unlock.com/3G.html

    Good luck, I hope it works for you !
