    Revealing Your UDID

    I'm trying to figure it out if there is a cheaper way to try out the BETA Iphone OS 4.0 firmware before dishing out a hundred dollars to get a developer account.

    After doing some research there does seem to be some legitimate sites that are willing to get you a UDID. Even if it's just a scam, it is a six dollars I'm willing to take a risk on.

    However, it does ask for my iPhone UDID. Is there any risk in revealing your UDID. What is it, and what information does it give anyone who has access to it?

    There's no way to add you to a developer account without the UDID. That's how Apple tracks and authenticates handsets approved for development.
    As well don't know if this is aloud, but if anyone is willing to add me to their developer account, I'd be happy to compensate you for your time.
    It's against Apple Forum Rules to discuss any such transactions here. You're more than welcome to do so in the B/S/T forum, but not here.

    PS: Unless you have a dedicated iPhone for development purposes, I would strongly advise you against installing the beta OS on your every day production iPhone. You can't load the OS without Xcode tools, you can't sync with iTunes, it's not stable, and many apps don't work properly with the new OS. It's not a toy for people to fool around with, it's a tool for developers to update their apps for the new OS.

    Yes, I have two iPhones, but of course, if If I wanted to revert back to the old OS I would simply preform a restore in itunes... correct?!

    The easiest way to get your UDID is signing up for the FREE student developer account. It doesn't give you access to the 4.0 SDK/Beta etc., however it's a FREE way to see your UDID.

    Then its up to you to either pay $100 for the developer account, or find someone charging for adding your UDID

    To "see" your UDID? If you plug your phone into iTunes and click on the serial number it'll switch to your UDID, and you can view it for free there. If that's what you were meaning about viewing it.
