It really isn’t a great secret that jailbreaking iOS devices is an extremely popular pastime and the activity keeps on growing with the passage of time. iOS device owners often go down the jailbreaking route for a number of different reasons, some jailbreak to enhance the stock experience and alter the way the system works, and some do it to drastically change the visuals of the operating system, while some merely use it as a mean to gain a software based unlock to use their devices on unofficial networks.
Unfortunately it is often the case that a software unlock cannot be achieved after jailbreaking, since it requires more tinkering around with the iPhone’s baseband. Thankfully, in recent times, a few players in the unlock game have been making some moves which have made the unlock process slightly smoother for a certain subset of iPhone users, but this has generally been limited to a specific model on a specific network.
AppleNBerry, one of the most well-known company names in the unlock business have announced that they will now be offering a permanent IMEI based unlock solution for iPhone users who are owners of devices which are locked to the AT&T network. As mentioned, the solution is permanent, meaning that even after the iPhone is restored or upgraded to newer firmware, the unlock will still be in place. The solution is compatible with the iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4 and 4S and there is no specific baseband required at all for the unlock to take place.
Requiring no additional hardware or software, the unlock can be processed through the AppleNBerry website and promises to be complete within one to two business days. The process is also extremely simple, requiring the user to enter their iPhone’s serial and IMEI numbers before checking out with the sum of $150.00. When the process is complete, users will be notified by email, and then it is a simple case of syncing the device with iTunes to complete the process.
The initial registration and process can be handled through the AppleNBerry website, with a charge of $150.00 being applicable, as mentioned before.
