Marmalade oozing out of my iPhone! [Or - how do I unlock an iPhone?]

It isn't really!

I just wanted to know if anyone had any experience of unlocking an iPhone. I have a UK Orange account which I would rather use when I am in the UK
I would rather not pay international charges to Swisscom.
It is a 3GS with the latest software.

Phone orange and ask if they will unlock it. It may cost 10 or 15 pounds.

Re: Marmalade oozing out of my iPhone! [Or - how do I unlock an iPhone?]

I just called Orange CH about unlocking an iPhone 3GS. We are 13 months into a 24 month contract and they said it would cost 100 CHF to unlock after the first year. Does this sound correct?

Is there another way to do it, unofficially? Not really worried about warranty anymore.

Good place to start:

For tutorials:

It's very simple but it all depends on the model of your phone, your firmware and your baseband.

You warranty will be fine since you just restore and nobody knows it was ever jailbreaked.

if its a 3gs with the latest updtae then forget about it, it is possible but you may loose gps capability and there is no way to go back.

get an official unlock for the 100chf.

If it is a 3g then its easy

I unlocked my wife's Iphone 3GS on http://jailbreakme.com/ it works...free! It does depend on whether you've updated to the latest Iphone software too...then it may not work.

btw Iclarified IS the best way to find out whether or not you can unlock/jailbreak...porsch1909 is absolutely right
