We’re going to say this right up front – we’re not entirely sure this is either legal or legit, so buyer beware!
If you’re forever a version or two of iOS behind because you need to wait for a carrier unlock to become available, then CutYourSim and other similar sites offering the same service could be for you. The company claims to be offering a permanent unlock, regardless of updates to the baseband, for iPhones. All for the sum of $169.99.
The solution we offer is a permanent solution. Jailbreaking, or unauthorized hacks are NOT required. This unlock will carry on forever, you can now update your phone to the newest version without worrying about waiting for an unauthorized unlock to be released. The unlock will work with any iPhone version, and any baseband version, no need to worry about updating to the latest version anymore, your phone will be unlocked forever!!!!!
100% Guaranteed to Work! This method is 100% Guaranteed, and the only time we will offer a refund is if you provide video proof that the phone did not get permanently unlocked with our method.
The unlock is apparently being backed by high profile members of the jailbreak geniuses in the community. Whether that’s a real endorsement for you very much depends on your point of view.
If CutYourSim and the likes are in fact whitelisting IMEI numbers, then the obvious question here is how? If the firm has access to Apple’s servers then surely there is potential for the whole thing to blow up should the Cupertino outfit get wise to the process. The result there could be the re-locking of your device.
You’ve been warned!
