George Hotz finds hack for iPhone to unlock from AT&T The much hyped iPhone and its maker Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) have met their match in the face of 17-years-old George Hotz, who was able to write a software application to unlock the trendy device from AT&T. Currently, iPhone owners and future buyers can use the device only through the network of AT&T, but the desire of George Hotz to hook up his cell phone to T-Mobile lead to the hack. According to Hotz, once the iPhone is unlocked, it could be used with almost any other carrier around the world.
