    In the device profile (where it shows what kind of iDevice you have) there should be the carrier you're on if you have an iPhone.... Just a thought.....

    Apple was selling unlocked iPhones a while ago?

    Yeah... No. If that were true, then anybody mentioning an unlock would get a warning or infraction. That includes both you and me.

    It would just be a hassle bgizzle would have to deal with. It's not necessary, so I would just leave it out. I would assume there are more people with iPod touches, as this is an iPod touch site.

    Sorry to make such a big bump but its shoudn't technically be illegal to unlock unless the carrier you unlock to has something in their contract saying something about it. What IS illegal is for the Dev-Team to MAKE and unlock because the Terms of Usage state not to reverse engineer the software and use it to make anything.

    Actually, just because something is in a terms-of-service doesn't mean it is a LAW. It is a CONTRACT. In fact, the DMCA here in the US has a specific exemption for unlocking cell phones. Even if the exemption didn't exist, just because some company has a contract with you doesn't mean that it is illegal to break it (and in fact, in some cases courts have even found the terms of a contract unenforceable)
