iPhone 3g unlock

Alright... so the headline may be decieving, but it's true nonetheless. You all know I bought (or my wife bought for me) a US 3G iPhone back in August. She wanted to surprise me and had no idea about the 'unlock' aspect. So, I haven't been able to use it as a phone and everything else it has to offer since getting it. Until now. I've been waiting for the smart folks to figure out how to unlock the phone but in the meantime I came across this 'piggyback' sim card that fits on top of the actual sim card and into the tray. Once you slide it in, you enter the unlock code... wait a couple of seconds and BAM - it works. I'm enjoying my phone as it should be enjoyed. Needless to say, I'm a happy guy. The iPhone is badass. So, if you're interested, here's the website of the 'piggyback' card:

I actually ended buying from an ebay seller here in France and there were no problems at all. This is certainly a nice, temporary solution until the unlock happens (if it ever does). The only drawback is you can sync your iPhone with the sim card inserted. Need to take it out - but it syncs without any issues.

I wasn't going to spend the money for one for myself (seeing as how we had just bought one for my daughter!) but my wife bought me mine last Christmas.

Now that I have it, I would easily spend the money for it.

You're rocks!

Now you just need to carefully study X's post about the "fun game" you can get for it. I'm sure you've seen it, but you really do need to do your homework you know.
