So let's say you want the fancy G1, the T-Mobile phone that runs Android, the Google OS, but you don't want to use it on T-Mobile. Let's say you wanted to use it on AT&T. We have good news for you.
The G1 has finally been unlocked. For US$22.99, you can send in your IMEI number to unlock-tmobileg1.com, which then returns an unlock code for you to enter. Once done, you can use the much-talked-about smartphone on any GSM network.
It's pricier than most GSM unlocks, which usually go for between US$10 and US$15, but it's far easier and less risky than the unlock methods employed by iPhone owners.
As reported by our sister site ZDNet Australia the T-Mobile G1 has been spotted on auction site eBay, though all the Australian mobile carriers are reluctant to confirm whether the G1 would be supported by the networks.
