    Since the iPhone 4 is using a Micro Sim card instead of the regular one is it possible to do the same method as with the iPad 3G meaning cutting up a regular sim card to the correct dimensions?

    This will work 100%, as long as you cut it up correctly... Actually, I saw on Engadget or Gizmodo (don't remember which) there was a stapler like object that did it for you.

    Chip cards sizes is a standardized and it's not only used in SIM cards, so there should be cutters to do that

    xXrkidXx you said that the devs had a unlock for iOS4 already so when the new iPhone comes out this would be possible?

    Mo, the new iPhone will not come factory unlocked like the iPad, its still tied to AT&T (and their shoddy security
