The Universal SIM Unlock Card – Now with iPhone goodness!

USB Fever is selling a Universal SIM Unlock Card which is boasting iPhone compatibility (yet an apparent incompatibility with proper apostrophe usage…).

This SIM unlock is a revolutionary do-it-yourself Plug & Play card for unlocking Mobile Phones without the risk of damaging the phone or voiding it’s [sic] warranty. This SIM unlock is made of a very thin piece of FPC (0.10mm) with a Microcontroller mounted on, that goes between your Operator’s SIM card & the phone’s SIM socket.
Because of it’s [sic] very thin & slim design it fits into almost all phone’s [sic] on the market and can also be easily removed again. It’s got Gold Immersion and makes perfect contact with the card and the socket at ALL times.

If one scrolls down the rather lengthy list of compatible phones, sure enough you will see the iPhone is indeed listed, although it claims software version “iPhone 1.2.3“, which doesn’t exist… But hey, why let that stop you? If you really want something to worry about, focus more on that you need to cut your SIM card in order to use the Universal SIM Unlock Card. This is actually quite common in SIM adapters, but it can be a somewhat tricky process, and you will run the risk of needing to buy a new SIM if you should be of the unsteady hands. Still, for a measly $22.99, it may be preferable way to unlock the iPhone for those who prefer a less “update incompatible” method.

    I’m no editor or English buff, but I’ve never been given a satisfactory reason for omitting the apostrophe in “it’s”.

    “phone’s” is painfully glaring though.

    Uhm by iphone 1,2,3 they mean the models 1g,2g,3g …
    That is why every other mobile listed is also by the model of it.
