A developer (via Chronic) has apparently discovered how to unlock the iPhone 4S (reportedly AT&T version only) without any software or hardware tweaking. The unlock will assist you in using your iPhone 4S on T-Mobile’s network as long as you have a T-Mobile SIM card. Before you get started, go ahead and cut down your T-Mobile SIM card to match your AT&T SIM card’s size. We’re working to confirm this works, but go ahead and give the following directions a try:

Will AT&T Acquires T-Mobile US For $39 Billion

 at&t, News  Comments Off on Will AT&T Acquires T-Mobile US For $39 Billion

AT&T, the second largest mobile provider in the United States has announced they intend to purchase T-Mobile USA from Deutsche Telekom for a staggering $39 billion worth of cash and stock options.

T-Mobile

The German Telco had been looking to offload the American arm of T-Mobile for a while now, and while many thought Sprint would be the likely purchasers, AT&T has struck a deal. With existing T-Mobile frequencies being compatible with those of AT&T (GSM), the purchase makes more sense than any involvement with Sprint, who’s current network runs on the CDMA standard.

iPhone Available on All US Carriers?

Tim Horan, a telecommunications analyst at Oppenheimer & Co is predicting that Apple’s iPhone will be available on all US carriers over the next 18 months.

According to Tim, this change in strategy in the US will help Apple sell two or three times more iPhones. The strategy of multiple carriers is already paying rich dividends in the UK.

Tim Horan writes:

“We believe AT&T’s iPhone exclusivity arrangement with Apple will be expiring by mid-2010.

For wireless carriers, customers are demanding the device and they need to remain competitive.”

We’ve already heard rumors about the iPhone coming to other US carriers such as Verizon, Sprint and Tmobile

In fact, there was a rumor earlier today that Apple might announce the end of AT&T exclusivity during the media event on Wednesday.

Horan goes on to add:

“With the addition of more carriers, iPhone sales in the U.S. will increase by 15 million to 25 million units annually. The device will put pressure on mobile-phone company margins because of higher subsidy costs. Adding the iPhone would also likely boost carriers’ capital spending on network upgrades by as much as $3 billion to support increases in data usage.”
