A Company from Northern Ireland, under the banner “Set Your iPhone Free From AT&T,” has posted a video that has been independently confirmed, demonstrating software that unlocks the iPhone. A press release dated August 25, says that the company was poised to begin sales of the software when they were contacted by lawyers representing AT&T. Their lawyers are now in the process of figuring out if AT&T has a serious case and if they intend on following through.

Implications - This six minute how-to video shows the founder of Uniquephones, John McLaughclin, showing viewers how to unlock an iPhone using his company's software. Transferring the SIM card from a Blackberry to the iPhone, a feat normally inhibited by differences in the phones' construct, he proceeds to make two calls from his Ireland home.
