Can't you Use an Unlocked iPhone to use a Pre-Paid SIM Card?
Now that Apple is selling unlocked iPhones that are not tied to a specific mobile carrier, you may be wondering if you can use an unlocked iPhone with a Prepaid mobile service. The answer isn't straight-forward. If you're brave, you can try to hack the iPhone in order to get prepaid service for your iPhone. There are a few sites detailing how to unlock the iPhone and then activiate a prepaid service, such as AT&T GoPhone, in order to work around the system. But in doing this you run the risk of decreased support, and possibly even violating your warantee. That is a risk many customers may not be willing to take.
So how does it work? Is it worth the risk? What if your iPhone breaks? Follow the link to find out...
