Here's a nice little bauble: a tiny shim that sits between your phone's SIM and the phone, which unlocks the handset. Note the admirable use of the grocer's apo'strophe in the sell-copy -- a sure sign of daffy ingenuity.
This SIM unlock is made of a very thin piece of FPC (0.10mm) with a Microcontroller mounted on, that goes between your Operator's SIM card & the phone's SIM socket.
