Only in last week, we have reported you that a new unlock service, called, “CutYourSim“, which offered a remote and permanent unlock for the iPhone. Different to the classic method of jailbreaking and installing Ultrasn0w, CutYourSim claimed to unlock your iPhone’s baseband remotely for any GSM carrier. With just $169.99, the guys at CutYourSim would be able to unlock your iPhone’s baseband and keep it unlocked forever. Though it seemed as a dream come true at that time, but that didn’t last long. Yes, why am I saying this? Just let’s find out the reason from below.

CutYourSim discontinues its service

Actually, CutYourSim has declared already that it’s discontinuing its unlock service…..

Today we have decided discontinue the service we offered for remotely unlocking any iPhone. For the customers who already paid, and received their unlocks a few days ago, they do not need to do anything because they made the cutoff for our service. All customers who paid via PayPal or Google Checkout will be refunded. Due to the high number of orders we had, please allow some time before receiving your cancellations/refunds.

We do plan on offering iPhone unlocking services in the near future after we send out cancellations and refunds, but the service will be different, it will be for iPhones locked to certain carriers. Once we take care of the refunds, we will post more about this new service we are going to offer.

Well, CutYourSim hasn’t any direct contact with Apple, and it was natural from the starting that the company was using some roundabout (and possibly illegal) methods to include device’s to Apple’s whitelisted database. Since, CutYourSim has closed the doors suddenly, it stands to reason that they have felt the heat from either Apple or carriers.

Though there are some good reasons that CutYourSim is discontinuing its unlocking service, but it’s really a sad story those of us that wanted a cheaper unlock solution. As buying an unlocked smartphone for retail price can be incredibly expensive, and the early adopters of CutYourSim reported a successful experience.

Actually, the post from CutYourSim indicates that there may be some expectation for the service to return, but it doesn’t look good. Most probably, CutYourSim had an inside source at a major carrier that was sending their customer’s IEMIs to Apple’s database.
