No I don't want to unlock your iPhone for you

Just because I've got one, and I love it, doesn't mean I'll help you with yours. It was hard enough for me to unlock mine that my recommendation on the device is this:

"If you aren't a developer familiar with SSH, firmware, networks, bootloaders, and Unix go buy something else. This device is not for you."

That includes buying one that is already unlocked. You will eventually screw up and be back to using ssh and command line shells.

I've got my own projects, and I really don't want to spend my life unlocking other people's phones when I could be having fun.

So, no, I don't want to help you unlock your phone.

The only person I will help is my wife, and that's because, well, I love her. If you aren't her, I don't love you enough, and you can't afford my hourly rate.

Hey I'll do them all. Processing time may however be...lengthy :-)

Heh. It took me 3 days, ssh, terminals and other funky abilities to get her phone working. :) Although, I am starting to really understand how the unlocks work. :)
