all i know is i am pretty sure this isnt possible

so unlucky to the geniuses thinking there going to unlock there iphone with it

No, they work for *activation*.
It does not unlock the phone, nor does it state that it does (though I can see how this can be misleading)

It will let you into the OS, run apps, etc, but the phone function won't work as it will remain network locked.

It does what it says, guy is just ripping people off, $5.80 USD off DX DealExtreme: $5.80 Universal Activation Sim Card for iPhone 2G/3G/3GS/4 (http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.42595)

This does as it says, activated the phone, you can't use the phone at all till it is activated, so you activate with this card first then do a software unlock with jailbreak.

Be handy if you got a phone from US that was locked to AT&T and didn't have a AT&T sim to activate the phone

I have a 2G iphone this could be useful for as its stuck at the activation stage.

Thanks for bringing it to my attention!!
