Free Developer unlock may be coming


The ChevronWP7 team recently revealed that they have unlocked 5000 phoned for $9 each, making $45000 from their venture so far. If you rather keep your pennies to yourself wphonehacker has hinted that they may soon have a free solution available to most Windows phone 7 users, except of course the beleaguered Dell owners.

The ChevronWP7 team responded that theirs is official and will survive updates, something unlikely with a hacked version, but of course if its easy enough one and does not bork updates (something that is never guaranteed with a hack) one would of course lose nothing by trying the free version first.

What do our readers think – $9 and official or free and risky? Let us know below.
