New Zealand Jail Break

Hackers used the term “jailbreak” to signify the act of superseding the restrictions iPhone’s to install illegal software in the gadget. The first step the owner of an iPhone must take so that he can later carry out the hack to open the handset is to jailbreak it, allowing it to work with another carrier.

After it was first launched in 2007 of June, the first iPhone was very vulnerable and was therefore not hard to jailbreak and hackers broke into the handset almost immediately, according to experts.


Jailbreaking quickly accelerated. Almost immediately, hackers were able to reverse-engineer important portions of the iPhone API, opening opportunities to installing and creating and 3rd-party applications for the gadget. Utilities, games, and even customized wallpapers and themes improved the handset’s capabilities.

To the enthusiasts of Apple, this was thrilling. At the time, there was no App Store for the iPhone, so actually jailbreaking was the key to acquiring more than just the small number of basic apps made available by Apple.

A hacker named Hotz announced in August 2007 that with the Dev Team (an assembly of hackers that post jailbreak instructions and tools) he had unlocked the iPhone. Afterwards, Hotz introduced software that can be employed by anyone in the world to make their iPhone function with the SIM card of any carrier.

With the launch of Apples official App Store in July 2008, the jailbreaking got less thrilling.

The App Store grew fast with over a hundred thousand apps to date.

This made the act of jailbreaking seem less important to the average owner of an iPhone, since downloading from apps sanctioned by Apple are risk-free.

Apple applied for the trademark of “iPhone” in October 2002 in Australia, the United Kingdom, Singapore, and the EU (European Union).


An application in Canada followed in 2004 of October and an application in New Zealand followed in 2006 of September.


Only the Australian and Singapore trademark applications have been approved as of October 2006. A company named Ocean Telecom Services filed for the trademark of “iPhone” in 2006 of September in the U.S., Hong Kong, United Kingdom, and later in Trinidad and Tobago.

Since the applications for trademark filed by Ocean Telecom employed precisely the same words as the application in New Zealand by Apple, it is understood that the application of Ocean Telecom is on Apple’s behalf.

According to AT&T, that even after the iPhone owner’s contract has expired, the handset cannot be unlocked.


AT&T in the U.S on March 26, 2009 started selling the iPhone sans a contract, although the handset is still SIM-locked to their system.


It was discovered though that such units of iPhone are usually two times more expensive than those with contracts, because AT&T and Apple lose subscription income. On 2009 July 17, AT&T said that they will no longer offer iPhones sans contracts.
