iPhone: To unlock or not to unlock...

As you may have heard, a plethora of complex techniques have appeared offering the ability to unlock Apple's iPhone and make it available directly on local Rogers/Fido networks in Canada. Once unlocked you are paying local cell rates but some iPhone capabilities are limited (Voicemail) or not available at all (YouTube). The unlocking techniques rely on a security flaw in the iPhone which Apple is likely to patch and regardless, they leave the iPhone in an unstable state where it may require several hours of restoring, reactivating and/or re-unlocking.

Precursor does NOT provide unlocking services.
