The hacker community has a true passion for unlocking cellphones and I whole-heartedly support it. It was only a matter of time before someone figured out how to unlock the G1 and who would have guessed that i’d be the easiest unlock on this side of the Atlantic. A site called Unlock-TmobileG1.com is offering up unlock codes for a mere $22.95. You send them your IMEI number, they email you back with a code and voila, you can unlock your G1.
Be warned, though. Early reports show that none of the Google services such as Gmail work on other networks such as AT&T’s.
