For the past three years, my wife and I have had a group of friends over for dinner on Thursday evening. The intent is to relax with friends, have dinner (spaghetti, bread, dessert, beverages) and watch several time-shifted TV shows (Survivor, Hereos, Eureka, Smallville, Lost!, and Grey's Anatomy) and any other video content that the group deems pertinent.
Last night, however, was special.
Last night there were a total of 10 people. One totally new person, and one relatively new person were on hand. But the one that held my attention throughout the evening as a friend that brought his unopened iPhone… to unlock and move to T-Mobile. By 12:30 AM, we had finally succeeded… everything worked.
If you're interested in the gory details, ping me, and I'll do a post on it. But those details are not the subject of this post. Instead, I wanted to share with you the fact that yes, you can unlock it, and yes it does indeed work.
It is not a second rate experience. As a matter of fact, the only difference I could see was that the voicemail button directly dials the T-Mobile voicemail system instead of providing the elegant visual voicemail interface.
