New app would unlock iPhones

Some underground software developers will reportedly soon release software for the iPhone that would allow users to unlock the phone so it can be used on carriers other than AT&T. The program is a one-touch iPhone application that allows owners to use a card from another cell company.

The application unlocks the iPhone without any tech-heavy tinkering on the phone itself.

However, it will work only on certain iPhones. Look for a release on New Year's Eve.
