17-Year-Old Unlocks Apple iPhone & Sells it for Car
A teen hacked the iPhone so that it is now unlocked and working on a non-AT&T network. The teen is 17-years-old and Glen Rock, N.J. Which is not too far from me.
Teen Trades Hacked IPhone for New Car from the AP writes:
The 17-year-old Hotz said he will be sending the three new iPhones to the three online collaborators who helped him divorce Apple Inc's popular product from AT&T's network. The job took 500 hours, or about 8 hours a day since the iPhone's June 29 launch.
His name is George Hotz.
He unlocked the iPhone on Friday, Aug. 24, 2007.
Now that is one killer summer gig.
