China Unicom, which happens to be the only official and authorized carrier in the world’s largest cellphone market (China) for iPhones and iPads is going to provide full service to its customers, which includes jailbreaking, converting SIM Card to Micro-SIM, installation of 10 of the most popular apps from Cydia, and a free case on every new purchase of iPhone 4 and iPad 3G. This was spotted by a Chinese citizen on a large advertising banners outside some of the China Unicom’s stores, as can be seen in the images below.
The lines circled above in red reads:
Support Service: Free SIM-trimming, jailbreak, installation of more than 10 hot apps
Now the question is, since all the new iPhones and iPads are now shipping with the latest firmware i.e. iOS 4.0.2 and iOS 3.2.2, it will be interesting to see how are they going to offer the jailbreak as the mentioned firmware versions are not jailbreakable by JailbreakMe. Also, I for one cant wait for Apple to respond on this, after all, China Unicom is an authorized carrier to sell Apple’s goods. [MIC Gadget via 9to5Mac]
