Here comes a really surprising news that CutYourSim, the producers of micro sim cutter, is offering a permanent and “legit” remote iPhone unlocking solution. You can now get unlocked any iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, on any carrier remotely without using any jailbreaking or unlocking hacks. But one downside of this unlock solution is that the owners Cutyoursim are demanding a price of $169.99 for this “official” unlock.
The iPhone unlocking service uses the same exact process that Apple uses and will not require any hacks, mods, jailbreak, or anything, hence it doesn’t void your device warranty. The process of this service essentially involves getting your IMEI from your device, and when adding that IMEI to the Apple’s whitelist, your iPhone will be unlocked forever. This service is also ONLY for GSM iPhones, and does not pertain to CDMA iPhones.
To quote CutYourSim themselves:

How it works
1) When you pay for this auction, include your iPhone’s IMEI number (Please check, and double check your entered IMEI#, I can’t give refunds for orders with incorrect IMEI Numbers). You can get this number from the phone by dialing *#06# please do not get the IMEI number from the box.
2) We will submit your phone’s IMEI# to Apple’s database, and your phone will be unlocked
3) Once unlock is complete, we will notify you. All you have to do then is, connect your iPhone with an unauthorized Sim Card to iTunes. This will then unlock your phone
This new iPhone unlocking method is being talked about all over Twitter right now. The iPhone Dev Team members and Chronic Dev Team members tweet about it (Well known iPhone hackers)
Chronic tweets, “it’s actually legit, they are somehow whitelisting the IMEIs, not totally sure how it works… iPhone is being repaired now so can’t test, but I know @CutYourSim is legit thru past dealings. I’m positive his unlock offerings are legit.”
MuscleNerd tweets, “they’re not using a hack. They’re using actual access to the Apple database (which is why the unlock happens through iTunes)”
