Successful iPhone Hack, Literally

The march to unlocking the iPhone continues as a New Jersey teenager has figured out a way to liberate the phone from the AT&T network.  The method involves resoldering components on the phone's system board, but it works according to news reports.  The holy grail of this is an all software solution.  Wait for those headlines.  Expect a cottage industry of unlocking phones and selling them via auction sites until Apple and/or AT&T figure out a way to stop this.  Somehow voiding the warranty just doesn't scare people anymore.

Stories are in InfoWorld, BBC, and the San Jose Mercury News.
