Unlocking Your iPhone in Chile
I bought my iPhone way back in October and unlocked it for use with any SIM card without any hassles (apart from the waiting and hoping that it wouldn't brick itself). It never really occurred to me that other people in Chile might be wanting to unlock their iPhones as well until a friend proudly showed me his iPhone...I asked him what network he was on and he said he couldn't unlock it. Oh dear...anyway, as luck would have it, the latest unlocking tools for Out The Box (OTB) Versions 1.1.2 and 1.1.3 had just been released, so I pointed him in the right direction and hey presto! an unlocked iPhone.
So if you want to know how to unlock your iPhone for use with any sim card just take a look at the following links for step by step instructions. It's actually really easy and it's freeeeeeeeeeeee (although i'd suggest doing the decent thing and donating a couple of quid to the super-geeks whose hard work has made it all possible).
To upgrade from 1.0.2 to 1.1.1 click here
The master resource for downgrading, upgrading, unlocking and modding your iPhone.
A forum full of useful resources but it's frustratingly slow at times for some reason.
This is the newest way of doing it and it's not a method i have personally tested.
