  3. Hi Ehsan,

    My personal preference would be network security as it is a niche area and would give ample opportunities for specialization, but then it depends on what you prefer 🙂

    I am from India but may be we have similar roots given that our last name matches 😉

  4. Hi Bro,

    I read your post on unlocking the iphone 3gs, and was really helpful.

    I was wondering if you knew the answer to this question.

    If the 3GS is activated on the AT&T network, will I still be able to unlock it here in India??

    Any help is much appreciated.

    Warm Regards,
    Marvin Adams.
