Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on December 22nd, 2010

For those of you who have been holding out and waiting for a deal on the Dell Streak, we have some good news. Dell has just dropped the pricing for its Streak device in the US. They obviously want to move some more units and drive sales figures up.

The unlocked models have dropped by $180, to a new low of $400. Android-powered models from AT&T will still retail for $550 and $650, in 16GB and 32GB capacities. I know which deal I would go for. Does this news entice you into buying a Streak?

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on July 4th, 2010

Holy crap. What’s with that model’s eyes? She looks like she is about to sprout vampire teeth and drink my blood. Probably without even having hot vampire sex with me. Would you buy a phone from her? It’s creepy. It’s like I’m being threatened to buy or else her and her husband, the Joker will have their way with me while Batman watches.

Anyway, the Samsung Wave has already hit the UK last month, but folks in the US have yet to get their hands on it. Now Amazon is offering the smartphone to US customers for $440 without a contract commitment.

SIM- and hardware-unlocked G1 surfaces for $400The Android Dev Phone 1, a completely unlocked G1, is available to “developers” for just $399 after a $25 setup fee. All you need to do is register as a developer at the Android Market and the phone is yours. Registration as a developer costs $25, but after that, you’ll be eligible for the cheap, unlocked phone.

The Android Dev Phone 1 is fully compatible with Android 1.0, and being able to swap out the SIM card breaks you free of T-Mobile’s service. It’ll also let you use custom Android builds that work with the freshly unlocked bootloader. You can even get free shipping and cool detailing on the back. Google warns that it’s not really meant for non-developers, but we’re sure that won’t stop you.

Nokia N85 shows up on Amazon: $556 unlockedThe Nokia N85 just dropped with a crazy price. At $556 this is one expensive phone, but Amazon is claiming that’s already been steeply discounted from an out of this world $1,200 “list price.” The phone is available to “buy” right now at Amazon.com, but there’s a 3 to 5 week ship time quoted, so we’re not sure yet if this is the first place where you’ll actually get the hotly-anticipated handset in the States, but if you like, you can give them your money right now. They don’t mind.

Palm Treo ProSmartphones are great for many users, especially those in the business world who can use them for tracking appointments and keeping connected with the office or that boss who likes to know where you are at all times. The catch is that many smartphones require you to be tied to one service provider for years and some people don’t like making that sort of commitment.

For the folks that eschew the contracts associated with your typical smartphone, Palm has announced that the Treo Pro unlocked smartphone is now available to purchase. Palm says that the unlocked smartphone allows users to take advantage of any network they want and even use local SIM cards when traveling abroad.

Italy to get iPhone unlocked with no contract

Posted in iPhone by Darrin Olson on April 22nd, 2008

Apple to sell 3G iPhone in Italy unlocked without a two year contractIt’s hard to say how they did it, but it appears that somehow Telecom Italia Mobile has convinced Apple and Steve Jobs to offer the new upcoming 3G version of the iPhone to customers in Italy with quite a bit more leeway than we’ve seen here in the states. Not only will the iPhone not require that two-year service contract along with the purchase, but it will also come unlocked.

This is something that Apple has been very stringent about stateside and has been volleying versions with hackers since the beginning, keeping the iPhone locked and with a single, exclusive carrier. What this means is that in Italy customers can just by the iPhone and use it with any carrier that they choose.

Hackers continue cycle, unlock iPhone after 1.1.1

Posted in Hacks,iPhone,News by Reuben Drake on October 14th, 2007

Hackers find a way around the latest update for bricked iPhones unlocked by softwareFor those who have iPhones unlocked by third party software hacks and were foiled by Apple’s 1.1.1 firmware release, it looks like the game is back on. SimFree version 1.6, from the same company that created the original hack to unlock Apple’s iPhone outside of the exclusive and required AT&T service plan, is a new countermeasure hack that gets around the new firmware update and will once again unlock those iPhones “bricked” by the 1.1.1 update.

According to iphoneSimFree, this new iPhone “jailbreak” will let anyone who has rightly been a little leery to update after Apple’s warning to safely go ahead and apply the 1.1.1 update and SimFree will keep the phone usable, at least until Apple comes out with another update.

iPhone firmware update not good for unlocked phones

Posted in Apple,iPhone by Darrin Olson on September 27th, 2007

Apple releases iPhone 1.1.1 firmware update with threats of bricking unlocked iPhonesApple released the expected version 1.1.1 update to the iPhone firmware today with fixes for some critical bugs and the additions to support the iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store. But what makes this release such big news are the less-known things in the update that threaten to brick unauthorized, unlocked iPhones.

Prior to the update Apple put out a warning to those with unlocked iPhones which basically stated that the next firmware update may render these unlocked phones useless, and the result is not covered by the warranty. With the new firmware update iPhone owners were presented on screen with the same message before installing the update:
