iPhone Unlocking Update 7/6: Commerical Efforts

The press has been picking up on some commercial efforts to unlock the iPhone.

Newzeland’s Computer World reports on John McLaughlin who is the founder of Belfast, UK-based UniquePhones.  McLaughlin said he has engineers working around the clock in several countries who are close to cracking the security Apple has set up to ensure customers can only use iPhones with AT&T Wireless service.

On July 3rd, his website claimed to be close to making a public announcement about cracking the activation, but so far, nothing.  Meanwhile, a public hacking effort has already announced their own success on the activation front, as has “DVD Jon.”

The Register also has a version of the same story.
