Hacker Activates iPhone Without AT&T Contract

Hacker Jon Lech Johansen, most famous for his work decoding copy-protected DVDs, has discovered how to activate the iPhone “without giving any of your money or personal information to AT&T.”

The process involves downloading his Phone Activation Server v1.0, but Jon says that the application “will not do anything unless you understand the magic numbers as well as add the hosts entry.”

Most of us probably don’t understand what that means, but there are a bunch of comments on his blog asking him to elaborate, so if you’re interested in this, you might want to keep an eye on that post.
