Site claims iPhone unlock
(Updated with developer admissions) iPhoneinfused.com claims they have created a one-click solution to unlocking the iPhone 3G. Videos on the site show the software unlocking the iPhone 3G, allowing it to work with other SIM cards (T-Mobile, AT&T prepaid, and more). iPhoneinfused.com says the software works with Mac and Windows, and completes in three minutes. The company offers a 100-percent money-back guarantee and lifetime membership for $40.
Pwnage Tool 2.0 released
On Saturday, iPhone Dev Team released its own utility to jailbreak and unlock the iPhone 3G, allowing users to access to the file system, to run third-party applications, and also unlock the device for use on any GSM network. The new Pwnage Tool 2.0 both jailbreaks and unlocks older iPhones as well as jailbreaks iPhone 3Gs and iPod Touches; it is designed for v2.0 firmware only, according to the brief announcement; however, a more full announcement is expected later. The free software featuring both 'simple' and 'expert' modes, patches the original Apple firmware/software download to allow users to install software and requires that users restore their iPhone using the patched IPSW file. The software appears to unlock original iPhones only and will not (yet?) unlock the iPhone 3G, which some other vendors have claimed to offer.

The page has also announced that scheduled maintenance from 11 p.m. to 2 a.m. tonight may result in MobileMe services going offline again.
