Windows Phone 7 is pretty uptight when it comes to getting full access over your device. Developers are always looking for ways to jailbreak their WP7 device and Windows always comes up with a new method to relock it.

However for LG Optimus 7 users there is now finally a workaround for this issue which keeps your device developer unlocked for as long as you want.

Presenting Unlock With WiFi
for Android – developed by a senior member at XDA, this app automatically disables the lockscreen (whether password-protected or not) when your device connects to a user-defined Wi-Fi network.

Before the highly-anticipated launch, Apple had already announced on June 11 that year, that the iPhone will support only web-based applications, coupled with the fact that it will remain tethered exclusively to the AT&T network.
