How to Unlock almost any iPhone without any jailbreak or accessory

So… some of you may have already seen this, if you didn’t then, here it is 🙂 its pretty cool, it works… but has one caveat… Its a TEMPORARY unlock… i.e. it will unlock your phone sure, but once your TMSI (Temporary Mobile Subscriber Identity) is refreshed, you will have to repeat the process again… in the UK and US i think this happens when you switch the phone on/off or travel over a large geographic area… however it could potentially happen whenever…

Instructions on how to unlock are after the break 🙂

  1. Grab your iPhone
  2. Insert a supported Sim Card… so, if your phone is locked to Tmobile, put a Tmobile sim in there … 
 

Amazon Support Store

Hi everyone! I keep getting lots of emails from people asking where they can buy xyz to complete the tutorials and try out some of the things listed on CaptainGeek, well after I kept emailing people the same links i had a thought, why not setup an amazon affiliate store. Basically, i’ve setup a small amazon site with a small selection of products (only those used for the tutorials on this site + related ones), purchases and payments are handled by amazon, however a small percentage of the sale goes to helping fund the server this website is hosted on AT NO EXTRA COST TO YOU 🙂 so its a win win situation, please use the links whenever you can.
