DesbloqueioBr, a Brazilian telecom company, says they are the first to find a way to unlock Apple‘s new iPhone 3G. Brazilian newspaper, Folha de Sao Paulo, says DesbloqueioBr altered the iPhone’s firmware and added a special card to the phone’s SIM chip.
Users with one of these Brazilian iPhones can connect to any mobile carrier they want and not the carrier that Apple made exclusive agreements with in each country.
Here’s a video of the hacked Brazilian iPhone from YouTube.
