I recently was asked by one of my friends that how can he use another SIM card on his phone other than the one he is using. He wanted to have a different SIM card whilst he was traveling so as to reduce the extra roaming charges. I told him about unlocking the iPhone. He was first puzzled what it was and asked for a clean and clear explanation. And I did. He was amazed by this particular process and had it done instantly and is now enjoying using different SIMS all across without any problems.

Are you too like my friend who does not know what unlockign an iPhone means. Do not be afraid as I have written a small description on the basics as well as the over all features of Unlocking an iPhone.

What does Unlocking an iPhone mean exactly ?

The iPhone is actually SIM locked, it means that the phone can only be used on AT&T and Verizon's networks in the United States.
A software unlock is the procedure after which the Apple iPhone is modified or rather adjusted in a way that the baseband will now be able to accept the SIM card of any GSM carrier without fail. This feature is entirely different than a what we call a jailbreak of one's iPhone which in fact does not unlock it. However a jailbreak is always needed for all currently public, unofficial software unlocks.

Is it harmful to do so ?

No, not at all.
