    Hey, John.

    Michael's been very busy with his new job and he's spending what little spare time he has trying to hack an iPhone to work with VZW's network. Last I heard, he had disassembled his old i730 and was in the process of trying to replace the radio in the iPhone with the i730's radio. He thought he had the software hacked and was just having trouble soldering the i730's radio in the iPhone.

    I'll let him know you're trying to contact him.

    Anyone else?

    If mrailing is working on this top-secret, oh-so-cool project, he should DEFINITELY contact me as I can help out a lot with the iPhone SDK.

    If anyone could do it, Michael can... If he teamed up with SuperDave, not only could they get the iPhone working on VZW's network, it would also press and iron your pants, make pancakes in three different flavors, read brail to the blind and automatically call telemarketers at home to bug them for a change...

    I spoke w/ Mike the other night. He's busy, as many people have said. I too haven't been on very much due to my work load. I'm about to move into my first home some the next month or so isn't looking any better...
    Thanks

    Here are some photos of the take apart. It looks to me like in the second one he already has managed to replace the radio chip with the Samsung i730's radio chip.

    Ah man... this is really, really bad. This is going to be like that HP thing all over again! This was not supposed to break until we were sure that he had the necessary disclosures signed. Well at least its just on the moderator forum that we are talking about it... imagine if this had made it to the public forum.
