iPhoneSIMfree purchased? Undisclosed Buyer and Amount.

vergeiPhoneSIMfree, the company that lets you use any SIM card in your iPhone using software, has been acquired for an undisclosed amount by an undisclosed company… Whodunit?[…] Thanks to verge for providing this nice story on Digg.

What other users say about this:

tidal: I knew this was going to happen… Why else did they keep reconfirming the unlocking by engadget, cnn, etc… They wanted a buyer!

axelbrush: Same site has this- yahoo launches facebook app called hotjobs http://www.techomical.com/my_weblog/2007/09/yahoo-launches-.html

iphoner: The software is available for pre-sale on ebay and the listing also has the email form the article. http://cgi.ebay.com/iPhoneSimFree-Unlock-Apple-iPhone-90-Day-MoneyBack_W0QQitemZ260157258552QQihZ016QQcategoryZ43312QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

code_of_life: this post is undisclosed

jamiemcconnell: My bet is Apple!

Lawrencediggs: Google?

nukepuppy: They were probably bullshit all along

blackbrutha: this is bullsh*t. F*ck these guys and their software that doesnt exist.

pengas: Bullcrap… Lets wait till monday and see whats what.

zdiggler: don’t worry soon as one copy of the software deployed to paying customer you will just be able to BT it.

databoy: Get a life and live with commercial reality. Everyone wants something for nothing. If I came up with the idea I would sell it to the highest bidder and so would you.

If you want to unlock your iPhone read this article: http://apcmag.com/7122/how_to_hack_and_iphone_and_get_it_to_work_in_australia_using_your_mac

OR wait until a better phone comes onto the market. At the end of the day it is only a phone. If you need to have one in your pocket 24/7 then you are living a miserable life. Go out, get laid and get rid of the stagnant sap. you will then can think straight.

axelbrush: I bought 200 licenses and I received the same email! When will I get my damn unlock licenses? I am sick of these guys playing with our money.

HappyScrappy: It is notable that this email came about when iphonesimfree sent an invoice out to a group for payment (by wire transfer to San Marino) and that group transferred the money. This email then came back, saying the group should send the money again, to a different account, because “they’ve been acquired”.

It’s really starting to look like a scam.

mobilehavoc: If someone really did buy out iphonesimfree.com it could turn into a very bad business move…all it takes Apple is to block this software unlock in their next update and they just lost on their “investment”. I guess they’re hoping to make a ton of money as fast as they can while this works and for that reason I don’t get all the delays!!

Xploder06: I really don’t trust these guys, think about it, you’re sending them your IMEI number to use as a license to unlock your iPhone, what’s stopping them from reporting all of those IMEI numbers to the respective carriers and/or the police?

Result:
Hundreds maybe even thousands of unusable iPhones (even on AT&T)
iPhoneSimFree walk away with tons of money
