SIMable proves fruitful in unlocking Apple iPhone 3G and makes Bold claim on Blackberry 9000 series

London, UK 14th October 2008 – It was announced today that the new version of the unlocking chip SIMable adds full support for 85% of the world’s mobile phones, including the infamous iPhone 3G, and all other smartphones.

As reported by IT PRO, the iPhone 3G has achieved a market share of 17% in the US, making it second only to Motorola’s RAZR V3. With no unlocking software yet available, and the product just launched on Prepay, the demand for a stable and easy unlocking solution is phenomenal.

SIMable also fully unlocks the new Blackberry Bold, which is seen as RIM’s answer to the Nokia E71. Just launched in the UK, they are being snapped up as and when available.

Introduced to the market in April this year by UK company 24/7 Mobile Solutions, SIMable can be installed and working in a Network locked handset in a matter of seconds. By using a customised manufactured cutting press, which comes with each unit, a tiny hole needs to be pressed out in the SIM card. Next SIMable needs to be aligned with the SIM and inserted into the locked handset. Using the cutting press, SIMable can be used more than once by transferring to any other SIM card.

In terms of handset warranty, the company state that SIMable requires no handset interference, and thus the full manufacturer’s guarantee remains intact. When SIMable is removed from the handset, the unit reverts back to it’s original locked state.

The product is available at the company’s website www.SIMable.com at a retail price of £16.99 (approx $29), with a standard small delivery charge covering all destinations worldwide. Each package includes the SIMable chip and customised cutting press, which eliminates any need for messy SIM cutting with scissors.
