17-year-old hacks iPhone to work with T-Mobile

For just the second time, someone has managed to hack an iPhone. This time, a skilled teenager managed to free an iPhone from the shackles of AT&T. 17-year-old George Holz of New Jersey cracked open his iPhone and hacked it, and now it works with his T-Mobile account. It’s not an easy hack – it takes two hours and requires soldering and software work. He has blogged instructions for the hack, and the phone is now for sale on eBay. You have to admire the kid for cracking the case (and voiding the warranty) on an expensive piece of hardware. He can’t get the visual voicemail to work but otherwise, he says, the phone works fine.
