Before proceeding to the unlock procedure, let me clarify some of the widespread misconceptions about Gevey SIM:

  • Losing signal for 2-3 mins will require you to redo the unlock procedure again. Losing signals for some seconds have no effect on the unlock.
  • To unlock your iPhone using Gevey SIM, you must call 112 for atleast 2 seconds. After 2 seconds, you can safely drop your call.

    I’ve been trying to unlock my iPhone 4 using a Gevey TurboSIM but when I reboot my iPhone it immediately appears a message on the screen that says “No SIM card installed” and where the signal bars appear it says “No SIM” and it stays like that. What could be wrong with my iPhone because I cannot unlock it if it keeps showing my such message?

      @chantal Hi,

      As far as I know Gevey works with iOS 5.0.1. Just be sure to create a custom IPSW using redsn0w or sn0wbreeze to preserve your unlockable baseband.

    hi,
    my iphone 4 is not showing any other wifi connection but i can connect my home router device. i mean if in airport there is free wifi but i can’t connect and it now showing any wifi list also . i m using 4.3.5. thanks

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 9 months ago

      Make sure that your within a 70-80 % signal strength radii of your Wi-Fi router / hotspot. By default, Apple devices don’t connect to those wireless hotspots which it considers too far away & therefore you don’t see it on your device as well.

    My Iphone4 is with the version of 4.3.3(8J2) and modem firmware 04.11.08. Once I tried to update ios5 and then it is locked and I tried to unlock it by visiting some technician here in Tel-Aviv, Israel but no one could succeed to unlock it. Is there any solution to unlock it, please do let me know. thank you.

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 9 months ago

      There is no way that you can currently unlock your iP4 with the 04.11.08 BB on it. Wait for a new Gevey / an unlock solution to arrive. It won’t be out anytime soon either. :(

  •

    is there a way to get the upgrade off?

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 9 months ago

      I believe iTunes always asks your confirmation whether to update your device / not. Just be careful not to do so the next time. iTunes never updates your device unless you have confirmed it. Also, the next time you see this pop-up, make sure to Cancel & Do Not Ask Me Again it.

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 9 months ago

      Updating to iOS 5 straight from iTunes will indeed kill your Gevey unlock. If you want to update your device whilst preserving your BB, make sure that you always restore to a custom iOS IPSW. Read this http://bit.ly/qWieKu. Use Sn0wbreeze 2.8b11 instead because you can now restore only to iOS 5.0.1. Rest of the steps are all the same.

    hello i wanna ask,
    i already follow the instruction, at the first time i use provider A, and it success.
    and then i change my provider to B, and follow the instruction again
    but when the final step ( waiting until the full signal ) suddenly its says searching, no more singnal appears. i wait for a few times and it says no service.

    i get frustated with this, and change itu again to provider A, but it all the same, it’s not working anymore..

    can you help me with this? thanks

    I got a used iphone – 4 in U.S and got it jail break. I’m currently in India and trying to use my Airtel micro SIM. When i insert the Airtel SIM, after reboot it says invalid SIM. I saw this forum now. Please let me know if I put a Gevey SIM will solve my problem?

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 9 months ago

      As long as your modem firmware is 04.10.01 & below, a Gevey SIM will be able to unlock your iP4.

  •  
    Anthony2 years, 9 months ago

    I already tried those earlier. nothing =(
    the gevey message never popped up

  •  
    Anthony2 years, 9 months ago

    yeah i know. i used the link u sent me using snowbreeze. u said it would work if i did that

    •

      Read the Updates towards the end mentioned on the same post that I had pointed you to earlier here http://bit.ly/p2VAxx & try them.

  •  
    Anthony2 years, 9 months ago

    so updating my iphone4 to ios 5.0.1 started to work and got it to factory settings but when it started to update. it said my sim card was invalid… the gevey sim message never popped it either

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 9 months ago

      If you didn’t know, the Gevey SIM works no more on iOS 5 & above unless you have actually preserved your BB with a custom IPSW.

  •  
    Anthony2 years, 9 months ago

    when i tried updating to the ios5 using snowbreeze, i kept getting the iphone error 3194.
    when i used tinyumbrella to fix that, it just became error 2005….

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 9 months ago

      You cannot restore to iOS 5 anymore because Apple has stopped signing it already. You can only restore to iOS 5.0.1 if you want to.

    need help.
    Thanks

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 10 months ago

      Probably its an issue with the SIM itself? Have you tried using a third different SIM with your Gevey as well?

  •  
    jim2 years, 10 months ago

    I have a IPhone 4 with IOS 4.3.5 (8L1) Firmware 04.10.01 (AT&T) I currently do not have service on it, I have a Nextel that I have service on and would like to move to my IPhone is this possible with a GEVEY SIM?

    Also what happens when you reset the phone… (reset all settings) dose that put it back to a different IOS like what it came out with ?

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 10 months ago

      Yes, the Gevey SIM will be able to unlock your device on the 04.10.01 BB. Resets will not affect anything but make sure that you never update to the stock versions of iOS directly from iTunes.

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 10 months ago

      Yes, you can very well use a Gevey SIM to unlock your device on the 04.10.01 BB version. Resetting your device will not screw up your device, but make sure to not update your device via anykind of updates from iTunes. Always use a custom iOS.

  •  
    LG2 years, 10 months ago

    I had ios 4.3.3 in to my iphone and it was the unlocked one. Once the ios5 released, I upgraded it and then my phone got locked and everytime I tried to unlock it by dialling 112……. airpalne mode…. so on, finally i get the messege Invalid Sim. Is there any way that I could return back to its previous version software i.e, 4.3.3.

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 10 months ago

      Nope. By updating to iOS 5, you have lost the Gevey unlock. Currently, there is no way for you to unlock your iP4.

  •  
    Anthony2 years, 10 months ago

    Is there anyway I can update my iPhone4 to ios5 and have it still unlocked?! Maybe update then unlock again or something?!

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 10 months ago

      Yes, by restoring to a custom iOS 5 IPSW, you can preserve your unlock while you update your iOS.

    Loren2 years, 10 months ago

    well, i’m not sure which method was used but i can tell you that now every time i turn my phone off and on again i will have to do the whole process. it’s so annoying.

    is there anything that can be done about that ?

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 10 months ago

      Nope, its just how the Gevey works though there are other kinds of Geveys in the market that doesn’t require this repetitive 112 dialing procedure after every reboot.

  •  
    lac2 years, 10 months ago

    Do I have to redo the unlock process every time after I turn off the phone ? I’m using Ultra gevey with Telus.

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 10 months ago

      Yes, I believe so you should on a Gevey Ultra.

  •  
    Loren2 years, 10 months ago

    thank you so much, this was super helpful but i have a question, now that i got it unlocked this way..

    will i ALWAYS have to go through ” accept … call 112… hang up.. turn on airplane mood…. etc ” ? it’s not easy as sometimes the ” no simcard” alert appears before i get to turn the airplane mood on so i will have to start from all over.

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 10 months ago

      It depends on the type of Gevey that you use i.e if the whole procedure needs to be done only once or after every reboot of the device.

  •  
    Nekeshia Jones2 years, 10 months ago

    Im trying to unlock the phone with Gevey,however im getting the no sim card installed error message(insert a sim with no pin lock) but thats after im able to accept and call 112,and i get a vm notification..what can I do?

    glenn2 years, 10 months ago

    I can get my grevey pro to unlock and get a great 4 to 5 signal and edge working. Then about 3 to 4 minutes later or it seems if I start to do any web surfing the phone signal decreases to the point it looses t-mobile carrier and starts searching. After searching fo a few minutes it finds t-mobile again and all is well for several more minutes. 3g is off. What am I missing? Thnaks in advance and for info I am running jailbroke iphone 4 4.3.3 and 4.10.01

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 10 months ago

      It could very well be an issue with your carrier signal strength. Not sure though as to why it would behave like this. Have you tried a different carrier SIM? Is it still the same?

  •  
    Arpita Patel2 years, 10 months ago

    I updated my iphone to ios 5…as there was no good option for unlock for 4.3.5……Waiting on dev to release the unlock procedure for iphone 5.

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 10 months ago

      There won’t be any atleast for the iP4 & also definitely not in a years time. If you aren’t aware, there is still no unlock for the 01.59.00+ BB versions on the iP4 & its almost a year since anything has come out for it from the Dev-Team. So don’t get your hopes high here.

    My iphone has been unlocked with tmobile nd using gevey i just updated to iOS 5 after i set it up using wifi can i use the same procedure to get my service back >?? :/

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 10 months ago

      Nope. iOS 5 blocks the exploit used by the Gevey SIM. You might want to restore your iP4 back to the official iOS 4.3.5 to get back the Gevey unlockable BB ASAP.

  •  
    DepTrai2 years, 10 months ago

    I have unlocked my iphone4 using gevey’s turbo sim and was wondering if it was ok to update my iphone? if it would mess up the unlock or not.

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 10 months ago

      It definitely will mess up the unlock. Make sure you preserve your BB & always restore to a custom IPSW ONLY to keep the unlock.

  •

    hi’

    i purchased a gevey supreme pro red sim and i have unlocked. But the problem is after i turn off my phone the phone doesn’t have a signal.Have i done anything wrong? i mean when i turn off my phone and turn it on again there is no signal and the message from gevey sim appears. It says to cancel or accept. Have i done something wrong. i thought gevey supreme was untethered

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 10 months ago

      The Gevey Supremem Pro Plus Red definitely is. I’m not sure which Gevey you currently have, but if your on the Red one, you need to hit Cancel on the Gevey welcome screen after each reboot to grab the signal back.

    I have iphone 4 — 4.3.3 & 4.10.01 firmware….
    I bought “Gevey Supreme Pro Sim Card Unlock All Version iPhone 4″ online and tried to unlock iphone.
    It worked fine first day.
    Second day, my iphone kept vibrating with no display (known issue) which got resolved by doing hard reset.
    Now, I am unable to unlock it again.
    I am geting “No Service” msg.
    What should I do, really spent lot of time trying the same steps again and again but TMob is not coming up. Please help.

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 10 months ago

      You might want to get that Gevey checked in other iP4′s as well. Probably it is bad / not an original one. There’s nothing wrong with your iPhone though as this is purely a Gevey related issue i.e if the T-Mobile SIM is still active / working.

    why my sim card cannot be detected when i change diference sim card? i try to used the last sim card again, but the problem still the same, so i cannot used all sim card? why this happen?? how i can fix this issue? :(

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 11 months ago

      You might want to change that Gevey SIM instead of the SIM itself & then try it again. Its probably not working / a fake one that you might have ended up with.

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 11 months ago

      A green Gevey Supreme is something that we have never heard of. You might want to get that changed to the red version Pro Plus or something. The Gevey Supreme Pro Plus Red doesn’t have any issues with the data connectivity either. But its earlier versions like the Yellow / Green did have issues.

      Yes & only if your going to get one that’s on iOS 4.3.5 & below. Also, why bother getting a locked one when Apple is selling them factory unlocked already.

      Use Redsn0w to JB your device. Follow the steps as mentioned here http://bit.ly/kPhfh0. Make sure that in your case you point Redsn0w to an iOS 4.1 IPSW ONLY & nothing else. This is important.

    I been having a problem with my phone. It’s all unlocked and says t-mobile at the too and have 4 bars but it won’t let me text get text call or get calls I have called t-mobile 4 times today and they have not help me at all so please help me

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 11 months ago

      This is something that you would need to take it up with the T-Mobile reps. Contact them & follow-up your issue with them. Can’t provide much insight into this topic either.

    Hi I used the Gevey Sim to unlock my iphone4 to work with a non-uk simcard. Worked no problem. As I live abroad sometimes I travel back to the uk and will want to use my uk sim. Do I have to use it with the gevey sim as well?

    The uk sim is the original sim I had when I bought my iPhone.

    Thanks in advance,
    Gareth

      Pramod2 years, 11 months ago

      No, you absolutely need not use the Gevey to unlock a carrier to which your iPhone is already locked to. :)

    when I put the sim card with the Gevey sim and turned on the iPhone4, I have a message for no sim card and can not see SIM welcome message? I tried to change the sim card with another 2 sim cards, Put still have the same problem, Can you please help me in this issue?

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 11 months ago

      Issue is with the Gevey. Try replacing the Gevey itself to see if it works.

  •

    can turbo sim iphone 4 can be upgraded or not ???

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 11 months ago

      NO. The Gevey exploit is long closed by Apple already in the iOS 5 betas. So, preserving your current BB is the ONLY way that you can keep your Gevey unlock.

  •  
    Hweez2 years, 11 months ago

    My Iphone BB/modern firmware is 4.10.01
    iOS is 4.3.3
    My issue is that even with the gevey sim in i still don’t get any signal, an in the Carrier tab it was on automatic so it searched for specific networks and i choose my network(o2) but once i click on it, it tells me the network is no longer available.
    i have tried to do the unlock with the gevey sim several times, but still no luck.

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 11 months ago

      Well, the fact that your Gevey is able to read the carrier networks around you indicates that your Gevey is working perfectly in your iP4. You might want to re-confirm the same by using other n/w carrier SIMs as well to see if the issue persists. Make sure that you did not have any SIM lock on your SIM either whilst using the Gevey.

    hi I do not have an at&t sim to activate iTunes or the phone can you help me actuate the new UK sim I have without access to stinging screen I only have the emergency screen/connect ti iTunes screen available to me and a gevey sim.

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 11 months ago

      Hacktivate your iP4 by using Redsn0w0.9.8b7c w/o ticking any of the available options. Make sure that your iOS version is below 4.3.4+ & DO NOT tick any of the available options in RS.

  •  
    Hweez2 years, 11 months ago

    I done everything but at the end i did not get any signal, but still no service, an i go to Carries and instead of Automatic i change to my network(o2) and when i click it i get this message:
    Network Lost
    Your selected mobile network is no longer available. You can choose a different network in Settings.

    and my sim was working before i jailbroke it, any ideas or suggestions?!

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 11 months ago

      Type in your iPhone BB / iOS / Modem FW details as well along with your issues to better understand the problem. Can’t help you much w/o them.

    juju2 years, 11 months ago

    thanks for ur quick reply. i did jailbreak but i dunno why it was showing emergency call only. i send to the phone shop they told me that i need to get original sim card and 4.3.4 can’t jailbreak. :( i dunno what i m gonna do now.

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 11 months ago

      No you haven’t jailbroken your device at all. Read my previous reply again & try getting the same carrier SIM from someone.

  •  
    juju2 years, 11 months ago

    i got present iphone from my firend. i did jailbreak and unlock after that my iphone is showing emergency call only . i send to the phone shop but they said i need the original sim card but i don’t have original sim card.i m using gevey sim (ios 4.3.4). if i don’t have original sim i can’t use anymore? pls help me

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 11 months ago

      Any other SIM from the same carrier or from your other iPhone buddies will do just fine in getting your device activated via iTunes. If you are already jailbroken, then why are you struggling at the emergency call screen? Looks like you aren’t jailbroken at all.

    Ivan2 years, 11 months ago

    tried another carrier no SIM Failure at all, but it also gives me a “No Service”… Kinda dizzy now.. tried the automatic way from gevey website by installing furiousmod but it has no different. :(

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 11 months ago

      FuriousMods are for the Gevey Ultras.
      Switch the Gevey with a brand new one. Probably its bad / not a genuine one. Get it checked with your Gevey dealer.

  •  
    Ivan2 years, 11 months ago

    I’ve got to the SIM Failure part but I don’t get any signal. Any ideas?

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 11 months ago

      Try a different Gevey / carrier SIM card. Also make sure that you do not have any SIM PIN locks on the SIM that your currently trying to unlock.

  •  
    Hweez2 years, 11 months ago

    you say dial 112, is that for all countries, say if i was in UK gevey cards work with 112?

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 11 months ago

      Yes, you need to dial 112 irrespective of the country in which your dialing it. Its a GSM worldwide emergency number.

      Try different carrier SIMs with the same Gevey. Also, try the same Gevey with different iPhones as well.

  •  
    James2 years, 12 months ago

    First, thank you very much for sharing all of this great info, it has been very helpful. I am still having a problem though. My gevey sim worked great other than the internet which now i know is because i have the supreme yellow and not red (thanks). However, it only worked for a day or so before i couldnt make any calls. So i rebooted and went through all of the same steps. The problem now is when i get through all of the steps shown and turn airplane mode off it goes to zero bars for a second or two and then shows me no service in the top left. Please help!

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 12 months ago

      You might want to get that Gevey of yours replaced with the Red version. This seems to be a common issue among the Yellow versions / with those that aren’t genuine or are bad. Use the Red version & your good to go w/o any hitches.

  •  
    me2 years, 12 months ago

    Hi, I bought an Ihpone 4 blocked with Fido. I used the Gevey and it worked. Once my battery run out and I charged it at my pc, itunes updated and now Is not working anymore. I changed the Gevey but I get a message with No SIM and I don;t seem to get the message to accept and than to call 112. PLAESE HELP!:(

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 12 months ago

      Which version of the Gevey are you using? Also, did you try the same Gevey with a different carrier SIM as well?

  •  
    Yuki2 years, 12 months ago

    Hi! I’ve unlocked my iPhone with Gevey, but it ran out of battery and it lost signal. Now the welcome window does not pop up and I get the 1-signal bar for just 1 second and then Sim failure or No sim card installed. I tried everything! Turned 3g and data roaming on and off, changed the language to english, rebooted many times, even restored it. But it doesn’t work! What could be the problem? :(

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 12 months ago

      Try the same with a different SIM to see if the issue still persists. Replacing your Gevey would definitely help because it looks like that Gevey is either bad / not a genuine one either. The original Gevey message will always come up with a really good success rate when compared to the non-genuine ones.

    how come my iphone is not working on a roaming sim card i am using a gevey sim

  •  
    cathy2 years, 12 months ago

    i sent an iphone 4, version 4.3.3 to my frend, using gevey sim to unlock the iphone.. with a roaming sim network from the philippines.. he is now in italy, how come when he tries to do the steps on how to unlock the phone, its not working , pls help ….

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 12 months ago

      That’s because the Gevey exploit works under the impression that your using a SIM that belongs to the country in which your in right now. Therefore, roaming doesn’t work. But then you can always use a local SIM of the country in which your roaming right now.

      Redo the 112 procedure again. It probably because your using the Gevey Supreme Yellow which does infact have issues with the data connectivity.

    Hey guys, i have a couple of questions hope u’ld be able to help.
    Here is the deal, i got my iphone 4 4.1bb 2.10.04 from the states, locked to AT&T, apparently it was activated first before i got it. Anyways, i jailbroke with limera1n and was waiting like everyone else for the unlock which never came out. Till Gevey was released, i got one from germany, and it worked just fine even though i have never seen the welcome msg even for once.
    Got a lot of problems with notifications not working and the jot spot tab was not available at all but was able to fix it. My problems now are that
    - i dont have the small camera icon right next to the text msg box.
    - i can not activate face time ( always waiting for activation )
    I never updated my firmware neither my itunes, lol, i know it sounds silly, but now i feel the urge to do that, coz every time i connect to itunes it says version 4.3.5 is available, so would that help fixing my problems? Would i be able to unlock using the same gevey i have now or buy a new one or it would be impossible?
    Pls help.

    •  
      Pramod3 years ago

      Its simply an issue that’s caused by your Gevey rather than your iPhone itself. You might want to get it replaced for a Gevey Supreme Red instead possibly because the one you have right now is either bad or a rip-off. Also, updating to iOS 4.3.5 will still make you see the same issues as its the Gevey that you need to replace.

        i have followed all d instructions given above but in vain :(

        •  
          Pramod3 years ago

          Its probably because your Gevey is either bad / not even a genuine one itself. Get your Gevey replaced with a new one & try again.

  •

    Can someone help me? The welcome screen will not appear and everytime I boot up my iphone it will always say “no sim”. Signal will never appear. When I put in my sim card by itself it can detect it but when i put in the gevey it doesnt detect anything and will always say “no sim” I cannot access the sim either through phone > sim applications because that option is disabled due to “no sim” and tried rebooting many times and adjusted the microsim with the gevey. I double checked the gevey and the tray and they are just like the pictures. What else can i do to get the welcome screen or 1 signal bar to appear?

    •  
      Pramod3 years ago

      Your Gevey is probably bad or isn’t working at all for some reason. Try a different SIM as well using the same Gevey to see if the issue still persists. If yes, you definitely need to get it replaced.

    •

      If your using the Gevey Supreme Yellow, then this Gevey does have issues with Data connectivity. You might want to switch to the Gevey Supreme Red version instead which works flawless.

    •  
      Pramod3 years ago

      You need not preserve your BB since you do not rely on an unlock at all. If you want to jailbreak your device on iOS 4.2.1, use Redsn0w. Read this. Use the latest version of Redsn0w http://bit.ly/p4YiRM.

    •  
      Pramod3 years ago

      Fire up Cydia & have a look at its homepage here http://bit.ly/qS5bjW. If you see any other than 4.3.4/4.3.5, you can update, else restore your current iOS version itself. The Gevey doesn’t have anything to do with your sync issues.

    iphonedude3 years ago

    hello everyone,
    I’v got two quick questions right here:
    1- Do i have to get a new Gevey sim every time i upgrade my OS or it will work anyway with the new updates?
    2- Do i need to perform the whole process every time i lose connection?
    Thnx

    •  
      Pramod3 years ago

      1. Any version of the Gevey works upto iOS 4.3.5 ONLY. Once the iOS 5 is out, it will be useless.
      2. If your using any version other then the Gevey Supremes/Ultra, then YES, you will need to repeat it each time you roam/switch OFF your device.

    I also use the Gevey to unlocked my phone. First it worked pretty weel but then later on I always get message “no simcard” and I have to do those step again and it worked and down again. I have to take off my simcard and followed that step two – three time per days. Please advise

    •  
      Pramod3 years ago

      Yep, some of the Geveys does have this kind of issue simply because they are either bad or not genuine. You might want to replace it with the Gevey Supreme Red instead. It seems to work pretty well than its earlier versions.

      Make sure that you do not have any PIN lock on your SIM. Remove if you have any set using a different handset & pop it back into your Gevey & retry.

    It is the gevey supreme that i am using. I still can’t figure it out. the wifi won’t even connect either its really weird. Any idea’s?

    •  
      Pramod3 years ago

      Eject out the Gevey first & then check to see if the Wi-Fi is atleast able to detect the nearby wireless networks. If Yes, then its time to get a new Gevey. If not, then its an issue with the iOS that your running which might need a fresh installation of the iOS.

      Is this the Gevey Supreme Yellow version that your talking about? If so, then they are known to have data connectivity issues & that’s the reason they have released an updated version of the same called the Gevey Supreme Red which works pretty fantastic. You might want to switch to that instead.

      Yes, you definitely can reboot your device. But you will need to redo the 112 dialing steps to get your signal back.

    •  
      Pramod3 years ago

      There seems to be a problem with the Gevey SIM itself. Probably because its a bad/not a genuine Gevey SIM. You need to check your SIM with other Geveys as well to see if this is the case with every single one you try or this particular one & then get it replaced.

      Yes, you SIM shouldn’t be having a SIM lock PIN on it. If you have one, then remove the PIN & retry the Gevey. If it did not work, try different carrier SIMs as well.

    •  
      Pramod3 years ago

      Probably a bad Gevey you have got there & hence it doesn’t work anymore. Try a different Gevey SIM to see if that solves your issue & if everything fails, replace your Gevey for an original one.

    Never upgrade my device? Really? Wow!
    I got this phone from someone who was tired of waiting for the fix. I got it for nothing and then bought myself a Gevey (not many people know about Gevey in SA)

    This might be a really dumb question, but how would I know if it has been jailbroken or not? And my phone will be fine if I never upgrade it?

    Thanks again!

    •  
      Pramod3 years ago

      Yes, your iPhone will be just fine. Though if you still want that update badly, you can very well do that on your iP4 since you do not rely on an Ultrasn0w unlock. But, keep in mind that you will need the help of your computer to boot your device up each time you restart your iP4 if want an unlock on the latest iOS. You will have to sacrifice one for the other. There is no hurry for you to update is what i say & make sure you use iFaith before you plan to do anything.

    Hi,
    I am wondering if someone faced the problem I am facing,,,,i can unlock the iphone perfect but for some reason i keep losing signal and i get the message “searching” where the carrier signal should show up and so to get my signal back, i have to set the airplane mode on and then off and so I get the signal back. this happens a lot and i don’t know why?
    can someone help please?

    •  
      Pramod3 years ago

      Yes, this issue is quite common among those who might have ended up with a bad Gevey. These Geveys are sometimes not able to catch a continuous carrier signal for your iP4. Pop in a different Gevey from your friend to see if your facing the same issue.

    I am in South Africa and just got my Gevey – my iphone4 is now working perfectly. What I need to know is : it is on version 4.1 with Firmware 02.10.04 – can I upgrade it to the latest ios? I do not have an original sim for the phone. How would I go about upgrading? Do I just plug it into itunes? I have read a lot about saving blobs and keeping BB – I have no idea what this all means. Please could you assist me :)

      No, if you have never jailbroken your device, its always advisable to stay on the iOS on which you are right now. Ideally you should save your SHSH blob for your iOS 4.2.1 using iFaith. Do not upgrade your device ever. Read this http://bit.ly/qIa3E7 to save your SHSH blob for iOS 4.2.1.

    How do I keep the 4.3.3 firmware?

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 1 month ago

      By saving your SHSH blob using Cydia. If Cydia hasn’t saved one for you, then use iFaith.

    I brought it back and he used different begets, all pro. Even brand new ones. It still does the same thing. I noticed that it has trouble finding the carrier. I got a new sim card and gevey and still doesn’t work. Can it be the phone? Should I restore it?
    Used different geveys*

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 1 month ago

      Hmmm, Yes. It definitely could be the iPhone now that’s causing this issue. Yes, give your iPhone a fresh restore & give it a retry. Make sure that you do not retore to the latest 4.3.4/4.3.5 iOS versions.

    Hi, I need help. I just bought a gevey pro from a local cell phone dealer person at the mall. It is 4.3.3 with baseband 4.10.01.
    When he first put it in it worked. It was working for an hr or so, I was testing and calling. Later on i restarted the phone because it froze. Now it doesn’t work.
    I do all the steps, but I would I get either invalid sim or searching.. Or no service

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 1 month ago

      Get it back to the dealer right away and ask him what’s the issue. It could be many reasons for one being not a genuine Gevey. Are you getting your country’s carrier list in your Settings?

      Did you try removing the Gevey out and then syncing your iPhone?

    Hi,

    Can someone help me please? I want to know if I can update my iPhone 4 which is currently on 4.2.1 to 4.3.4. I’m using gevey sim pro and the firmware is on 3.10.01. Will gevey sim pro work after I update?

    Thanks,
    Vaishnavi

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 1 month ago

      Yes, the Gevey continues to still unlock iP4′s on iOS 4.3.4. Confirmed !!

      You must always do this. Never ever update your iP4 w/o saving your BB. Your just the lucky one. :D

    Thnx guys, Gevey sim ROCKS.Today I upgrade my gevey unlock iphone 4 4.2.1 bb03.10.01 to iso 4.3.3 bb o4.10.01.All the functions r great.The best thing is my three month old gevey sim works with the new iso nd firmwear,Thnx again.I think the only problem is-may be battery drains little bit early.Anybody face these kind of problem ? What ‘ll be the solution ????

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 1 month ago

      Battery drainage is a common issue with the Geveys mostly seen among the non-genuine ones. Make sure that yours is genuine.

    I have a gevey supreme purchased from eBay I tried to use it with my locked iPhone which is locked to o2 in the uk. I am trying to use it with tmobile in the uk.

    When I insert the gevey I don’t get any welcome message and I get no sim status in the status bar. I’ve tried everything I can’t get anything but no sim. I don’t see welcome messages. I have tried with 3 sims but nothing. Any ideas

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 1 month ago

      The Gevey that your brought is probably not genuine. Have you tried the Gevey with a SIM from a different carrier as well? If its still functioning in the same manner, then definitely you need to get it replaced because it simply doesn’t work. You can get a new one as well from Applenberry itself.

  •  
    Dheeraj3 years, 1 month ago

    It is genuine. I am 100% sure :)
    Issue is some where else. Can i try restoring and re activating?

    ~Dheeraj

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 1 month ago

      If your sure that your Gevey is a genuine one, then chances are that its gone bad/not working anymore. What you can try is to pick a Gevey SIM from your friend’s iP4, pop it into yours and see if it behaves in the same way like how yours did.

  •  
    Dheeraj3 years, 1 month ago

    My 3G is disabled and it is listing all carriers.
    This gevey sim was working properly for reboots till now. Today i removed the sim once and placed it back.

    After this above problem. Network lost. Should i clear any network related settings?

    ~Dheeraj

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 1 month ago

      Its possible that your Gevey is not a genuine one due to which is failing to work at every reboot of your iPhone. Get your Gevey replaced and retry.

  •  
    Masha3 years, 1 month ago

    no, it cant find the carriers- it says its searching for it, and when i click to automatic because it wont show me at&t or tmobil it still doesnt work. i really have no idea why this isnt working.

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 1 month ago

      I would suggest you to try the same with a different T-Mobile SIM, other than the one you have. Also its very much possible that your Gevey (whichever version it maybe) isn’t working that well with a T-Mobile SIM probably because its not genuine. Try it out with a different T-Mobile SIM with any Gevey from your friend that works to see if its resulting in the same issue.

  •  
    Masha3 years, 1 month ago

    my 3G is off, i really dont get how to make this work. What can I do?
    haha yeah, the warranty was on it. I told them its reading that Im having SIM failure and they just gave me a new one right away

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 1 month ago

      Are you atleast able to see the list of carriers within your area in your Settings ?

  •  
    Cristian3 years, 1 month ago

    Hi, I had gevey sim working on a jailbroken iphone. Today, i decided to restore and erase all data to check if that fixed a battery drain problem I was having… And now, I cannot get Gevey to work… Every time I reboot the phone I get the No SIM card installed message. I do not see the welcome screen… What should I do? I have read that ‘DO NOT RESTORE AND ERASE ALL DATA WITH THE GEVEY INSIDE’, but it was too late… Help please!

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 1 month ago

      Does this behave in the same manner on a different iPhone as well? Check that as well by popping your Gevey into an another iP4. If yes, then again check it with a combination of SIM’s & iP4 from different carriers as well. Your Gevey should start working in one or the other scenario for sure. If not, your Gevey is probably dead and you might want to get it replaced/ get a new one.

  •  
    mark3 years, 1 month ago

    also just on the off chance that you did have the 3G “off” and its still doing what you say, did you try your gevey in your mates fone and his in yours?
    also nice touch on getting the new iphone

    Faisal3 years, 1 month ago

    Hi,I hv an iphone 4 4.2.1 BB 03.10.01 and unlocked by gevey sim.Now I want to upgrade the iso 4.3.3.What will be the procedure,I just connect with itune and upgrade ? My original nocontact sim was AT&T.My question is,what I need to do-remove my present sim and insert the original one and upgrade or just connect and upgrade(Before unlock,I activate my phone using the AT&T sim).Another thing if I upgrade 4.3.3 will my BB change ? Pls help me.
    –Rergards

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 1 month ago

      Yes, you can update it via iTunes directly. And Yes your BB will change as a result of the update, but that shouldn’t matter because the Gevey still supports the iOS 4.3.3 BB. Pop in your AT&T back into your iPhone till your Update completes. After that pop your Gevey back in and your good to go.

  •  
    Masha3 years, 1 month ago

    Okay, I need major help.

    I have the black iphone 4 (4.3.3), I was using the Gevey and everything was working fine. About 2 days ago it popped up to that welcome Gevey screen and I wasnt able to get it to work again. I went to the apple store – they gave me a new phone. Went to Tmobile got a new sim, replaced the Gevey like 3 times. I do the whole process, and it even works for either like 15 seconds (and 2 times for like 10 minutes) but then all the signal bars go down, and it starts saying “searching”, and thenit just says ” No Service”, and stays that way. I dont know what to do. I know that it starts to work but I have no idea why it stops!! Right when im about to dial the “112″ a little thing pops up saying “Network Lost” and im thinking maybe that has something to do with it? It makes no sense though, because my friend and I are on the same plan and his isnt doing this- working just fine, so I know its not my service!!!
    WHAT DO I DO?!?!?!?!?!?!??!

    please help me :(

    EDIT: Oh – i just did it again. It either says “no service” OR now “invalid sim” :(

    WHY!?!?!

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 1 month ago

      Have you kept your 3G toggled to ON? If so, toggle it back OFF and make sure its kept that way because iPhones do not support the 3G frequency of T-Mobile. Its very astonishing to see that Apple replced your iP4 for a brand new one!! I wonder how you pulled that off? :D

  •  
    George3 years, 1 month ago

    Hi if the phone has been blocked by IMEI would it be possible to be UNBLOCKED (no UNLOCKED) using Gevey Turbo SIM?

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 1 month ago

      Maybe its possible. But as a matter of fact, your IMEI is blacklisted by your carrier probably because somebody reported it missing/stolen & therefore if your carrier finds it out that your trying to use it on a particular carrier, it gets flagged in their system and the next thing you know, the police is at your doorstep. Its a serious offense and therefore your carrier might not take it lightly. You always need a valid IMEI to be able to use it with a carrier SIM as your SIM will broadcast this information as well.

    Alex3 years, 1 month ago

    70bes,
    You seem to have a bad Gevey. I had the same symptoms like yourself. So,I went to the local Cell Phone shop to actually buy a different SIM Card for T-Mobile thinking the problem was because of the T-Mobile sim card. The Gentleman at the shop suggested I try a different Gevey before I go and invest in another Sim Card. He was right, the problem was not with the T-Mobile sim card but the Gevey card. He installed the Gevey Supreme and it has been great so far.

      Are you getting the signal and the carrier name as well? What happens when you try to call someone? Please explain.

    i got the message once twice but after i do it goes from one bar to searching after i accept the message and i uninstalled dreamboard already so im out of ideas
    EDIT: lol i got it to work thx for the help man

  •  
    Ryan3 years, 1 month ago

    when i turn on my iphone it goes directly to no service ive got it to work 2 times before i added dreamboard from cydia when i reboot it dowsnt give me the message.

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 1 month ago

      Uninstall Dreamboard. Dreamboard by defualt overrides many of the inbuilt functions of the default iOS theme to give you the WOW factor look. Probably the Gevey is designed to work in such a way that when it see the default iOS springboard loaded, show up the Gevey message. Right now, I guess its having difficulty in finding which theme/version it is. Uninstallation of Dreamboard should work just fine.

    Hi I was hoping you could help me. on my iphone after i place my Gevey sim in and true on my iphone a, “no Sim installed” shows up before anything else dose. I cut my Sim card perfectly, I even went and bought a new Gevey sim but I keep getting the same results. I was hoping you could help me this iphone has been driving me crazy!Thanks.

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 1 month ago

      Do you see the Gevey Welcome Screen? Can you see if the same problem persists with a SIM from another carrier? Probably you can ask your friend’s SIM from a different carrier to see if the same issue persists.

  •  
    Haris3 years, 2 months ago

    i have completed the same procedure..as you said …full signal bar apears i made call to one friend also but after few minutes it again goes on searching than sim failure…and invalid sim bought another gavey sim…with warranty…same happens in that also…mine iphn4 4.3.3 4.10.01..either you suggest some thing to resolve or suggest some web site for factory unlocking i m ready to pay….even since 7 days this is only ipod not an iphone……..

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 2 months ago

      Right now, there are no websites that provides an auto unlocking solution anymore. So Gevey is your best option for the unlock until iOS 5 comes out. Make sure you have your 3G services set to OFF and try if its happening the same way. Make sure that your Gevey is genuine as well because fakes do not support all the SIM’s.

    I have a problem just now, yesterday i had 4.1 BB 2.10.04 on my iphone 4 gevey worked 100% , i used snowbreeze 2.7 to upgrade to 4.3.3 and preserve my BB (i guess theres no point since theres no carrier unlock :( anyway, my gevey sim (the first one) it work perfectly, calls, facetime, network and all, but since my 4.3.3 upgrade, i can make calls (i fix my 1-single bar problem with ultrasn0w), sms, facetime, push notifications are working fine, but i cant
    activate my 3g network, ive already try putting the apn manually, and it is correct, i rebooted my iphone a couple of times and after everything works fine but the 3g, any suggestions? thank you for the help, great blog :)

    PD. i activated my phone with a oficial at&t sim and i restore my
    4.1 backup from i tunes (idk if it matters but i thought and give
    every detail :)

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 2 months ago

      Which carrier SIM do you use totocrazy2?
      In case your using T-Mobile, you should know that its 3G frequency is not supported by the iPhone’s hardware and hence you’ll not be able to use their 3G services.

        kumar3 years, 2 months ago

        i m having a strange problem which i noticed today, time stamp of incoming msgs are exactly 5.30 hrs late, if i get a msg at 5.30 pm, its showing 12 pm in incoming msg, where as outgoing msgs and call logs are working fine ,problem is only with incoming msgs, (yesterday, i have installed dreamboard for themes and in that themes weather widget , i went to its widget file through ifile and changed to hyderabad location), so did that effect incoming msgs time stamp??? i deleted entire dreamboard and its themes, even there is no change in time stamp for incoming msgs,

        i m sure this issue is only since yesterday evening, i have kept date & time set automatically ON, i am sure prevoiusly i use to get correct time stamp when date n time set automatically is in ON status…

        any 1 have any idea regarding this issue????????????/

        •  
          Pramod3 years, 2 months ago

          Yes Kumar, its possible that since you have changed the attribute of your current Dreamboard theme, your time stamps are getting errored. What happens when you change the current theme back to your default iOS theme? The time stamps should be working fine then. Am I right? This means its something to do with that specific theme that your running and hence the only solution for this is to not use that particular theme anymore.

    i’ve got a normal Gevey Sim will it still unlock iOS 4.3.3?

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 2 months ago

      Yes, it’ll definitely unlock your iPhone on iOS 4.3.3.

  •  
    Alex3 years, 2 months ago

    Go to your local Cell Phone Store and have them put one in your phone. It might cost you a little more but you’ll walk away with something that works. I’ve tried about five difffernt ones online and all of them a dud. I used a Gevey Supreme and it works just fine. With Gevey Supreme you don’t have to go through the whole process when there is “No Service Signal”. The signal shows up all by itself.

    hi i have an iphone 4 from another country and had to restore it
    now i have a gevey aswell
    but when i restored it and then jailbroke, it i still get the ‘no sim’ on my iphone
    am i missing something or is it just the gevey could be bust/broke or similar
    i do nt have another iphone to test the gevey on as the rest of family/friends have unlocked iphones

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 2 months ago

      Yes, its something to do with the Gevey itself. Pop in a different SIM from anyone of your family members to see if it still behaves in the same manner. If yes, you’ll need to get the Gevey replaced. Are you getting Gevey’s Welcome Screen as well?

      •  
        mark3 years, 2 months ago

        yes i have tried a couple of different sims and still the same
        also no welcome screen

    - Can I turn in the 3G now? (the normal GSM network is working good now)

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 2 months ago

      1. Yes, you’ll need to repeat the same steps for every reboot of your iPhone to get your Gevey activated.
      2. Yes, you can go ahead and switch ON your 3G.

    Hi. I have a problem with my Gevey Turbo Sim, I do anything written here, but when I turn on my iPhone with Gevey tray and new sim, the wrelcome screen never comes, just the sreen, that only emergency call, and needs to connet to my computer for iTunes. I changed the lagnuage to english, and I turned off the PIN code from the new sim. Help please!

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 2 months ago

      If your stuck at the Emergency call screen, you’ll need to pop in your official SIM with the original SIM tray that came locked with your iPhone and connect to iTunes. Only then will you be able to skip this screen. This has nothing to do with your Gevey.

      •  
        Prosi3 years, 2 months ago

        Yes but my iPhone is not locked, I use it with original sim 3 month ago, now I want to change operator, and when it sees the new sim in Gevey, goes to iTunes connect screen. Thanks for your help.

          •  
            Pramod3 years, 2 months ago

            Hmmm, weird problem there. In that case, it requires Hacktivation. Download the latest Redsn0wRC18 from here http://bit.ly/lMeWpa and run it without ticking any of the options that RS shows you. You should be successfully Hacktivated and back to your Home Screen. Now, you can go ahead and try the Gevey.

    Miguel3 years, 2 months ago

    Hello,

    I’m using the brand new gevey supreme and i know it’s legit (i checked the serial number on gevey’s website). I’m running 4.3.3 with baseband 04.10.01. My iphone is hacktivated with redsn0w and when I pop the sim card with the interposer in it shows one signal bar for about 5 secs and then “invalid sim”… any ideas about what i should do next?

    Thank you very much!

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 2 months ago

      Have you tried the same Gevey with any other carrier’s SIM as well to see if its the same case? If the problem still persists, you might need to get your Supreme exchanged for a new one. Though its legit, sometimes they cause Invalid errors as well. Make sure you try it with a different combination off SIMs to double check.

    I was going through the same heartache with Gevey’s and Gevey Pro’s for the last month. Yesterday I went to a local cell phone shop thinking it could be my T-Mobile Sim Card, But then I found out that all of those Gevey’s were either defective or Fake. The Cell phone shop guy pulled out the New Gevey Supreme in a yellow package. He insalled it, turned it on went through the process once and “Wallah”. So far so Good. Don’t waste your time or money buying online, go to your local cell phone shop, pay a few dollars extra and get an original Gevey Supreme.

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 2 months ago

      Yep, I agree to the same as well. :)

    •  
      mark3 years, 2 months ago

      hi Alex glad you got your fone sorted
      but according to Applenberry and a couple others the Gevey Supreme is fake
      hope you can help me out with these 2 questions i have
      1. do you still have to use the aeroplane mode when using the internet?
      2. how much in total did you pay for it?

      why i asked the first question >>>>>

      First time to start the Gevey Supreme Sim Card with your iPhone 4 ,you have to Dial 112 .
      After 15 seconds, hang up, switch the flight mode. Then you can surf the internet .
      You have to do it like this each time, if you like to surf the Internet ,It’s the same as generation .

      The Second time and later , you are no longer to dial 112, you can operate it directly,
      but if you would like to surf the internet, you also need to dial 112.

      think they made a mistake when they wrote (after 15 seconds hang up)

      •  
        Pramod3 years, 2 months ago

        Yes, 15 secs is just wrong. You need to keep it dialed only for 2 Secs. Also seems like your having the yellow Gevey Supreme (due to the data connectivity issues)? Am I right?
        Applenberry says its a fake because Applenberry doesn’t manufacture them & nor do they sell them. These Supreme’s & Pro’s (Yellow & Red) come in manufactured from China and hence the fake message on their website.

      •  
        Alex3 years, 2 months ago

        I’ve been using the Gevey Supreme for last
        two days and lost service once, after a minute
        came back on it’s own. I paid $25 but it was through
        a friend. You might have to pay a little more. First
        Time you have to go through the regular process
        after that when there is no service after a while the
        service shows up on it’s own.

    having problem with the Gevey Pro.. it does find the network after the 112 call and airplane mode etc. but loses it after a few seconds going to NO SIM.
    I’m on 4.3.3 bb04.10

      Have you been facing this problem right from the time you bought the Gevey or is it only recently that you have started facing this trouble.

      •  
        Ridz3 years, 2 months ago

        only got it a few days ago.. and it was working fine.. losing signal after 5-6 hours, but after re-going through the steps it was alright.. getting this problem today and it’s the same everytime.. it registers to the network with full signal but ‘no sim’ popup comes up 5 seconds later :S

        •  
          Pramod3 years, 2 months ago

          If your using T-Mobile, make sure you have switched OFF your 3G. If not, it seems like something is wrong with the Gevey itself. To confirm this, pop in a different SIM to see if its behaving in the same manner. If yes, you’ll need to get your Gevey replaced from your dealer.

    my unlocked iphone 4 worked for 3 days. now it doesnt work anymore. everytime when i do all the steps they give me 4-5 signals and then loses to 1 bar and says no sim failure and no sim install then says no service. i can still see my phone number and the carrier sometimes. i need some help!

      Helen3 years, 2 months ago

      i had signal early this morning but not anymore. also i dont see my facetime slider and the data roaming tab under cellular data (the second one not third) because i tried to follow some blog to fix mms and facetime :/ should i go to itunes and restore everything?

      •  
        Pramod3 years, 2 months ago

        Don’t restore just yet. Make sure that your SIM is tight and not too loose on the Gevey slider. It does happen at times when the SIM is loose. Also try the same Gevey with another SIM to see if the problem persists. If yes, demand a replacement from the dealer your brought it from cause the Gevey seems to be bad.

    Do we need to jailbreak our iPhone to use other service. Or only gevey is enough
    If I don’t have any gevey then can I make it work with jailbreak all over the world.
    Suggest me

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 2 months ago

      You need not jailbreak if you have the Gevey. It’ll get your iPhone working with any network around. The Gevey will get the unlcoking done for you. In case you do not have the Gevey & your iOS > 4.0.x, you’ll definitely need it because right now Gevey is the only solution to get your iPhone unlocked on a different carrier for this iOS range.

      Pramod3 years, 2 months ago

      Try to put his SIM only onto your iPhone with your Gevey itself and see if your able to get it activated via his SIM. This is just to find if its your SIM alone that’s causing this issue. Try it out and let me know.

      Pramod3 years, 2 months ago

      Do you have them on your SIM ? If so, remove the Gevey and pop your SIM in with the original SIM tray and then import. Make sure you have the contacts on your iPhone first.

    Please Help!

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 2 months ago

      Make sure you have switched OFF 3G when you have a T-Mobile SIM inserted into your iPhone. iPhone doesn’t support 3G on T-Mobile.

      •  
        Alex3 years, 2 months ago

        I tried with the 3G On/Off, Data Roaming On/Off, Celular Data On/Off still nothing. I turned everything Off also and still the same result. Any other Suggestion. Would the New Gevey Supreme be any different?

        •  
          Pramod3 years, 2 months ago

          Nope, the Gevey Supreme would also behave in the same manner as well. Try a Gevey from your friend to see if it behaves in the same manner. That should tell you whether its the Gevey that’s causing the issue or not.

    Rob3 years, 2 months ago

    Hello, I am currently using Gevey sim pro and it’s been the same gevey since I was with ios 4.2.1. Now I am in 4.3.3 and it works great. However, I am trying to use Facetime with no success, I have installed Sam and I am Wildcard activated from Itunes, ipusher installed with success Pushes! Facetime still doesn’t activate, hangs around the “waiting for activation” msg. I tried Push Doctor pushes work fine, but facetime still doesn’t work. What else should I try? Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Rob.

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 2 months ago

      If you have your iPhone Wildcard Activated, you have FaceTime shouldn’t have any problems. You’ll need to wait for the Activation Success message to come up (Max 5min).

      •  
        Rob3 years, 2 months ago

        I have been waiting for longer than 10 mins with no success, however when I try activating facetime, I do get a msg that says “Your Carries may charge for SMS msgs used to activate Facetime”, I click OK and nothing happens.
        After waiting for more than 10 mins, I get msg “Activation Unsuccessful, turn on facetime to try again.

        •  
          Pramod3 years, 2 months ago

          If SAM wasn’t able to get your FaceTime up, follow this instead:
          1. Go to Cydia and add the following source: http://apps.iphoneislam.com
          2. Search for FaceTime Hacktivator. Install the app and reboot your iPhone.
          3. Go to Settings > Phone, and activate the FaceTime option. (Toggle it ON).
          4. Your iPhone will now send an international SMS to activate FaceTime.
          Done. :)

Do you have any other Ideas?

    Gev3 years, 2 months ago

    Here is a solution for the people who get No sim card installed/Sim Failure right after iPhone 4 is turned on with gevey

    Just ignore all the error messages your iPhone pops up…

    do following steps
    1. Turn off your iPhone 4
    2. instert your cut sim card with gevey
    3. Turn on your iPhone
    4. Ignore sim failure, go to Settings and turn on airplane mode, wait 2-3 sec, turn it ON again, maybe you’ll get Sim failure again, ignore this error too, Turn Airplane mode on/off, until you’ll see 1 signal bar, and the Gevey “Welcome Message”
    5. Accept the message, again you’ll see sim failure, or no service, ignore it, just turn airplane mode on/off untill you see 1 signal bar
    6. dial 112 within 2-3 seconds, and end the call
    7. wait until 1 signal bar disappears and NO SERVICE message appears.
    8. Turn on Airplane mode, and wait untill NO SIM CARD INSTALLED message appears
    9. Turn OFF Airplane Mode> sim Failure > turn on airplane mode and again turn OFF airplane mode, and you will see full signar bar…

    It means that you should do all the default steps for gevey, by ignoring all the sim failure messages….

    Enjoy your iPhone!!!

    Hello
    I want to confirm what is on the blog questions.
    I have iphone 4 with 4.2.1 and 03.10, using the original Gevey (NOT Pro).
    According to the answers there is no problem to update my phone to 4.3.3 and continue using the original Gevey. If i preserve the baseband I have to install ultrasnow 1.2.3 to fix the only one bar signal problem.
    Is this correct? will the Original Gevey work if I update to 4.3.3 and update the baseband as well?
    thanks for the help

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 2 months ago

      Yes & Yes. You’ll need to use Ultrasn0w in any situation of preserving the BB and upgrading the iOS at the same time. Else, you’ll face the single bar issue. Gevey supports all the iOS & BB versions upto iOS5b1 as well, so you really don’t need to preserve the BB if your using the Gevey SIM at all.

  •  
    Michael L3 years, 2 months ago

    I am using iphone4 4.3.3 and 04.10.01.
    After using the new sim card in the Gevey Pro my signals stays at 1 bar for eternity, and the welcome message never appears. I checked the language setting but could not find the option for phone > sim setting. My phone language is set to English. When I use my old At&t sim card along with the Gevey pro, the welcome message appears now! So I guess the Gevey pro does work but not with my new sim card. Can you help me? Thanks!

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 2 months ago

      To confirm if the Gevey doesn’t work on your SIM, try a different SIM, from your friend maybe, preferably of a different carrier other than the official AT&T. If yes, then its your SIM & carrier is the culprit that’s causing the issue. If it doesn’t work, definitely ask for a replacement of the Gevey because that seems to be the problem.

        i am using iphone 4 ,ios 4.3.3 bb 2.10.04 with gevey sim and i am having only 1 signal bar, previously when i used iphone 4 ios 4.2.1 bb 2.10.04 i got full signal bars, so is there any tweak or patch to get full signal bars in 4.3.3 using gevey sim with bb 2.10.04???????

        •  
          Pramod3 years, 2 months ago

          This happens because you have preserved your BB whilst updated your iOS. Even if your using Gevey or not, this mismatch between the iOS & BB versions causes the single signal bar issue. Install Ultrasn0w 1.2.3 from Cydia by following this guide here http://bit.ly/lAcuoN to fix it even if you don’t rely on it. Once you have installed Ultrasn0w, reboot your iPhone and your good to go. :)

    I have upgrade my firmware to 4.3.3 and ever since im having only 1 signal bar and at times no bars at all, earlier with the firmware 4.1 it always had full bars. Is it the firmware or anytother issue? Also im using a sim which is 8 years old. Appreciate your assistance

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 2 months ago

      It seems your preserving your BB. If so, even if your officially unlocked you’ll need to complete the unlock by installing Ultrasn0w 1.2.3 from Cydia. Follow this guide here http://bit.ly/lAcuoN in order to do so.

    Cindy3 years, 2 months ago

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 2 months ago

      Retry the Gevey again because it may never work the first time. Otherwise, its an issue regarding your SIM that seems to be the problem.
      Try a different SIM with the Gevey to see if the problem persists. If yes, your Gevey is good to return. If not, your SIM card has a problem in contacting the carrier and needs replacement.

I don’t know what other alternative yes i did installed SAM and still didn’t work. I think T-mobile can’t activate facetime. please help me figure this out. thanks

        •  
          Pramod3 years, 2 months ago

          Your having difficulty in activating FaceTime because your iPhone is still Hacktivated and is not officially activated by iTunes. If SAM din’t for you, PushDoc will. Install PushDoc directly from InsanelyI’s repo and run it to get your Push Certs while it lasts. Follow this guide on how to install PushDoc http://bit.ly/k2vSGU. :)

    Please suggst!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        •  
          Pramod3 years, 2 months ago

          If you ever update to the stock Apple iOS, it’ll update your BB. But since there is no unlock for the same as of now, there is no point in preserving the BB as well. Therefore you can go ahead and update the same. You can also jailbreak 4.3.3 using Redsn0wRC16. Download the latest from here http://bit.ly/kOhAeX & follow this guide here http://bit.ly/kPhfh0 to get you jailbroken. (iOS 4.3.3′s BB is 04.10).

    I’ve my old iphone 4 unlocked before but after I went and swapped a new iphone 4 because i broke my last one, I can’t seem to unlock this one. I’m using the same gevey sim on my new one like i did my last one.. I’m pretty sure the gevey sim is authentic because i bought it at a store and they unlocked it for me. I’ve also gone thru the same unlocking steps when i turn my old iphone off and on. For the new one, after going all the same steps, everything goes accordingly but I can’t seem to get the message ‘no sim card installed’ to come up, i’ve waited as much as 4 seconds while dialing 112 and i’ve waited as much as 10 hours after turning my phone on airplane mode but no response…

    please help me~!!

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 2 months ago

      I see you have waited for a long time for the “No SIM Card Installed” eroor to pop up. Did you try the same Gevey with a different SIM? I suppose its something to do with the SIM. Try it out.

    •  
      mark3 years, 2 months ago

      perhaps the Gevey you have will only do up-to the 4.2.. update
      as you prob have the 4.3.3 firmware or 5.0 now
      or was the firmware the same on both the fones

      •  
        Pramod3 years, 2 months ago

        Mark, the original Gevey works upto iOS 4.3.3. There’s no way that the Gevey would work only for a specific iOS & BB version.

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 2 months ago

      Well since the Gevey is grabbing your signal and is also able to make calls too, I would want you to try the same Gevey on a different SIM carrier to see if the problem is still the same. If yes, then the Gevey is bad and you might need to get it replaced. Before doing so, try out the Gevey with a different carrier.

    Hi! I got a serious problem about Gevey Pro! I tried to do a unlock with gevey pro for the first time! The black screen apeared!! Now iphone is in another country! We took another cellular operator. So this time I try (My uncle) does the same in this guide but the black screen does not appear! We tryed to restore it! And put settings the same as in this guide!! But black screen still does not appear!! I checked the Gevey Pro its ok. We did restore, but we don’t have any contact with the black screen!!! Help please :(

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 2 months ago

      The Gevey has nothing to do with the iPhone in terms of restore/updates/jailbreaks. So you need not do any of those to get the Gevey working. Make sure that the SIM is working fit inside the iPhone and that gevey is also cut properly to fit in as well. Sometimes it happens when the Gevey is bad and you may need to get it replaced if it doesn’t work at all. Try it with a different iPhone also to see if the problem persists. If so, return it.

    Hi,

    I have a problem that when I restart the gevey welcome screen just doesn’t come … For that I have to pull the sim card out? But sometimes when ur not carrying the pin to pull out it’s really frustrating what is the cause and how to get the gevey screen becoz it just goes to No service quickly I am on 4.3.3 BB04.10.04

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 2 months ago

      Ashish, yes its a problem with the Gevey. This commonly happens to those Geveys that are bad. You’ll need to make sure if the SIM if sittin fit and perfectly inside your tray. You’ll also need to do it more than once to get the Welcome screen to get you started. Pulling out the SIM and popping it back in works always. Make sure you Switch Off your mobile completely as well and den pop in the SIM back. No service is a common error. If this is the first time you using the Gevey, try the Gevey on a different SIM and then on a different iPhone as well. If everything else fails, the Gevey is bad and you’ll need to return it back as well.

    now i could not get the prompt of “accept ” and “cancel”
    can you plzz.suggest me….!!!

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 2 months ago

      Make sure that your SIM is sitting fit inside with the Gevey. The 6 silicon contacts are the key to a successful Gevey. Make sure they are touching properly with each other. Give it a reboot once or twice. You’ll get the message. If the Gevey doesn’t work, it would return the “No SIM Card Installed” error. But since you don’t have it, you’ll need to just to give it a reboot. I’m sure, Skype dint do anything to the Gevey. :)

          Pramod3 years, 2 months ago

          Gr8. Glad to know that the issue is now resolved. :)
          Yes Sam, you can go ahead and very well install all the latest apps of the AppleStore. iTunes will not lock your iPhone out thinking that its an unlocked iPhone. So no worries. :) Yes, you’ll need to use Cydia to download tweaks, apps, and themes and so many otherr things from cydia. Installous is another tool that lets you download Apps off the internet which can be downloaded from Cydia. Since you have unlocked it with the Gevey, you’ll need to go through the initial steps every time you reboot. But soon enough the Gevey Pro Plus is going to be released that will allow you to skip the 112 dialing procedure. Have a look at it here http://bit.ly/lHufM4.

            Yep, sure I can help you with this. Its a problem with the Hacktivated iPhones since they are not officially activated via iTunes. You can go ahead and install SAM to officially activate your iPhone via iTunes. Follow this guide here http://bit.ly/mDpDwr. Let me know how it goes. :)

            Just to add a little bit more here,
            As Pramod said the Gevey Pro Plus (Supreme)is out and is an untethered unlock,
            But according to Applenberry it is a fake
            so if you do purchase 1 and your fone gets extra hot around the sim-tray part
            I would recommend to take it out as with an Gevey genuine or not!
            Also i have seen these getting sold for $60 on E.bay and other places,
            I got mine for $20 and will put a post up when i try it out compared to my Genuine Gevey

    Hi, I have an unlocked iPhone 4 with the gevey sim and it works fine but the only problem is I can’t receive picture messages or send them. I have put in all the tmobile settings but I have to reboot and do the whole unlocking process over again and the mms still doesn’t work is there any fix?

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 2 months ago

      Heyy Jordan, considering that you are in the US, are your MMS settings similar to these;
      APN: wap.voicestream.com
      MMSC: http://mms.msg.eng.t-mobile.com/mms/wapenc
      MMS Proxy: 216.155.165.50:8080
      MMS Max Message Size: 1048576
      MMS UA Prof URL: http://www.apple.com/mms/uaprof.rdf

      If not, change them to these settings and try them out. Let us know how it goes. Good luck. :)

      •  
        Jordan3 years, 2 months ago

        I put those new settings in but do I need to reboot it? Because I tried to send a message without rebooting it and it didn’t work.

        •  
          Pramod3 years, 2 months ago

          Yes, you must restart your iPhone after entering in the Settings.

          •  
            Jordan3 years, 2 months ago

            I restarted it but it still doesnt work.

          •  
            Pramod3 years, 2 months ago

            You’ll need to check with your carrier if the Settings are entered right for the MMS. Give them a call and let them know your issue. They’ll be able to sort it out for you.

    hey i just brought this gevey pro
    i follow all the steps
    but it only work 1 minute and then it say No SIM on the signal bar

    do u know wut happen?

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 3 months ago

      Make sure that your SIM is completely detected by Gevey. Sometimes it does happen if the Gevey is bad. Try it with a separate SIM also to see if it behaves the same way. If yes, the Gevey is bad.

      •  
        ooxiao3 years, 2 months ago

    I only get “No SIM”. The phone does not, ever, detect the Gevey SIM. :(

    •  
      Patrick3 years, 3 months ago

      Gevey SIM works transparently. Go to Settings -> Phone -> SIM Applications and see if u get language options?

      •  
        Juan Tarrio3 years, 3 months ago

        Patrick, the menu Settings > Phone menu is unavailable, saying “No SIM”. It cannot be selected. It’s just as if there wasn’t a SIM installed. There are no language options because there is no way to go into the Phone menu.

        •  
          Pramod3 years, 3 months ago

          Make sure that your SIM is completely detected by Gevey. See if your able to get a single signal bar the first time you pop in the Gevey. Sometimes it does happen if the Gevey is bad. Try it with a separate SIM also to confirm if it behaves the same way. If yes, then you can safely assume that the Gevey is bad.

          •  
            Juan Tarrio3 years, 3 months ago

            I’ve tried with a different SIM and it still doesn’t work. I’ve tried on a different iPhone and it still doesn’t work. At this point, I am returning the Gevey.

          •  
            Pramod3 years, 3 months ago

            Good decision. At times the Gevey itself becomes faulty. Get it replaced for a new one from the dealer. Good Luck. :)

    Hello Wolverine,
    I could use some help.
    I have the Gevey Pro and can get it to work on ANY sim card.
    It’s from applenberry, they tested it before sending and i can’t get anything out of it.
    Tried some of the stuff on this post and still no luck.
    As of right now, 3G is OFF, Cellular Data and Data Roaming is ON and wi-fi is OFF.
    When I boot the iPhone 4, I do not get a “Welcome Screen” and it just says NO SIM (very quickly).
    Tried with 3 different SIMS (Belgium, Switzerland and Spain).
    I’m on 4.3.3, just restored and not jailbroken.
    The sim sits in there just fine.
    I just don’t know what else to try.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    •  
      Patrick3 years, 3 months ago

      This means either the SIM Interposer is faulty or your SIM card is not sitting tight on SIM interposer and SIM interposer is not sitting tight on SIM tray. Definitely a connection issue. Also when you go to Settings -> Phone -> SIM Applications, do you see language options?

      •  
        Abrsive3 years, 3 months ago

        I do not get any SIM applications option… it’s not accesible.
        Is there any way to improve how it sit’s on the interposer?
        Does Applenberry give you difficulties with returns?
        I’m in Switzerland and I sent them and email about my problems that they never replied to.
        Thanks for your help

        •  
          Pramod3 years, 3 months ago

          I’m afraid but the Gevey SIM seems to be faulty. It happens at times when the Gevey is not able detect the SIM. Since you have tried it with 3 different SIMs, it confirms of a bad Gevey and so you’ll need to get it replaced from Applenberry. Give them a call on the numbers mentioned in their webpage. You’ll need to ask them about returns. Good luck. :)

          •  
            Abrsive3 years, 2 months ago

            Thanks… I’ve sent it back and the new one is on it’s way to me.
            They seem to be pretty good about returns.
            I hope it works this time.
            Thanks for your help.

    successfully erased the 6.15 BB files, should accept new BB flash files now, or at least i hope so

    @Matej depends on how long ago you got your gevey chip aswell, as not all the gevey do 4.3.3 (think the gevey pro do all firmware)
    as it happened to me!
    prob be best if you know some 1 on 4.3.3 and try on there fone with your gevey chip

    do àny 1 know who is releasing the Gevey Pro Plus (as this 1 has nothing to do with applendalle

    Matej3 years, 3 months ago

    Hi!
    I read all the comments and I am stil not sure… Here’s the deal. I have unlocked (from at&t) iphone 4 ios 4.2.1, bb 03.10 and is not jailbroken and I don’t want to jailbreak it. Works fine and everything, but now I want to upgrade it…

    So if I want to upgrade to 4.3.3, do I have to put the original (at&t) sim while upgrading and repeat the gevey unlock procedure with my sim or can I just upgrade it with my sim and gevey inside?

    Thank you!
    Matej

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

      While upgrading your iPhone to iOS 4.3.3, take both unofficial SIM card and Gevey SIM out of your iPhone. Once upgraded, put your unofficial SIM card and Gevey SIM back and unlock your iPhone by using the above guide.

    •  
      mark3 years, 3 months ago

      do be careful when upgrading to 4.3.3 as not all the gevey unlock 4.3.3
      i have 2 of them here both genuine gevey and only 1 unlocks my 4.3.3 but both unlock my partners 4.2.1 iphone!

    Where can I get the Gevey SIM for the iPhone 3GS? I only see it on Ebay for the Iphone 4?

    Thanks.

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

      Gevey SIM is only available for iPhone 4 users. All basebands of iPhone 3GS are directly or indirectly unlockable using Ultrasn0w 1.2.3.

      •  
        Soren3 years, 3 months ago

        I have BB 05.14.02. I heard that with Ultrasn0w, I would have to go to BB 6.15.0.0. I use GPS very frequently on my GPS, so facing the possibility of losing it without being able to downgrade is not an option.

        So, am I stuck on BB 05.14.02 with my iPhone 3GS that I wish to retain GPS service on?

        Thank you. :)

        •  
          Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

          Nops. You can not unlock your iPhone 3GS bb 05.14.02 using Ultrasn0w 1.2.3 directly. To unlock it, you must upgrade to iPad baseband which might lose you GPS functionality. There is no other way to unlock your iPhone at this moment. Also downgrade from 06.15.00 to 05.13.04 is very much possible (But not now) http://bit.ly/hgfKdx

          •

      Make sure your unofficial SIM card is sitting tight on your Gevey SIM interposer and your SIM interposer is sitting tight on your SIM tray. Looks like your SIM is not in proper contact with SIM interposer.

      •  
        Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

        Got it. Your Gevey is not Genuine, i think. Btw you can change the Gevey welcome message language by navigating to Settings -> Phone -> SIM Applications -> English. It will instantly pop-up the Gevey welcome message. But again, i am telling you, your Gevey do not seems to be genuine or your SIM is not sitting tight on your SIM interposer.

    •

      Nopsi. You need to hacktivate your iPhone first. Why? Because after dialing 112, you need to turn ON airplane mode and you can turn ON airplane mode only if you have access to your Springboard.

    everything is working properly when I want to install the new Gevey turbo SIM card. However, after step 13 it pops up a black screen in Chinese from the webside-www.gevey 3g.com. where i have to “accept” or “Cancel” After that it turns back to frontpage and the phone wasn’t able to connect either way…i’ve tried several times…Help me !!!!

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

      After accepting Gevey Turbo welcome message, you need to wait for 1-signal-bar to appear. It wont unlock itself automatically, you must dial 112 and then turn airplane mode ON etc (As instructed in above article)

    Hi there i did all the step that u told me but this doesn’t work

    last night i did this and it worked everything was working fine
    today morning i restarted the phone and cant unlock it

    firmware 4.2.1
    BB 3.10.1

    i get searching>on1 signal bar>accept screen>call > airplane > no sim > airplan off > sim failure

    and then nothing :( :( some it shows 1 signal bar again some time searching and some times no sim

    what to do pls help

    if i try with another carrier none of these step happen

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

      When you accept Gevey welcome screen, wait until 1-signal-bar appears in your status-bar. Once you see 1-signal-bar in your status-bar, then dial 112 for 2-3 seconds. I am sure you are missing proper timing of the above steps. Check out the video guide here http://bit.ly/keuKZn

        pls help Bro i am in read need of help…… yesterday it worked but now its is not

        just now i did the whole procedure it showed me the carrier i did a call and as soon as i droped the call it disconnected NO sim

        tried with wifi on and off

        wifi on or of ?? what should i do

        •  
          Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

          Go to Settings -> General -> Network and turn OFF Cellular Data, Enable 3G and Data Roaming. Then try to repeat the above procedure. In this way, you phone will not use cellular data (EDGE, GPRS, 3G etc) and hopefully your signals will not drop. Also tell me you got Gevey Pro or Gevey SIM (Initial release?)

          •  
            Iftekhar3 years, 3 months ago

            i dont know about pro but the ic is smaller

            i think it initial one

            1) will it work with only one
            2) wifi on or off

          •  
            Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

            IC is small then it means it is initial version of Gevey!

            1. Yes, it will work with only one iPhone at a time because Gevey SIM interposer needs to be in your iPhone all the time to keep it unlocked.
            2. Wifi never matters. Better keep it ON.

          •  
            Iftekhar3 years, 3 months ago

            i mean will it only work with one carrier

            e.g first i turn it on with t mobile

            then with any other carrier

          •  
            Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

            Yes, Gevey can unlock all carriers until they support 112 emergency number according to GSM standards.

    hi wolverine.. ive got a problem here.. im on an iphone 4 unlocked with gevey sim but i wanna activate it with SAM, and i read in one of ur old posts that u avtivated SAM with gevey sim but i dont know how to… i always get the sim invalid error… please help thanks ;)

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

      First simply put the unofficial SIM in your iPhone and activate it using SAM. Once activated, unlock your iPhone using SAM. To activate your iPhone using SAM, you do not need to be unlocked. All your require is a SIM card with IMSI and ICCID.

      •  
        steven3 years, 3 months ago

        that means that i have to activate my phone with SAM without the gevey sim card? ans i keep getting sim card not recognized by itunes error… and how do i know my imsi and iccid? thanks :)

        •  
          Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

          Yes you should activate iPhone with SAM without Gevey and it should work fine. If you are getting sim card not recognized by itunes error, follow the steps below:

          1. Open SAM
          2. Go to Method menu
          3. Choose By Country and Carrier and hit the back button
          4. Choose Country menu and select your country. Hit the back button
          5. Choose Carrier menu and select your carrier.
          6. Activate your iPhone by connecting to iTunes. DO NOT close SAM.

          If the above steps do not work, try to borrow some other carrier SIM from your friend and activate your iPhone.

          •  
            steven3 years, 3 months ago

          •

    Hi, I unlock the phone successfully using Gevey but when I used Itunes to sync and restore my contacts it somehow reboot itself so now i have to do it again. It cant work anymore and i tried so many times and follow your steps. Can I still do it again after i sync with itunes? thx

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

      Gevey have nothing to do with syncing your iPhone with iTunes. If you are still unsure, take out Gevey and then sync contacts. It will still crash. Its probably corrupt firmware on iPhone or may be iTunes issue. Restoring firmware again might help.

    I did follow all the step in the end it work for 2 mins then it drop to no service again. I try 10 times it still not working please help

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

      In-case you managed to unlock your iPhone for some seconds or some minutes and then lose the entire signals, it could be because of two reasons:
      1. Your SIM is not sitting tight on SIM interposer or your SIM interposer is not sitting tight on SIM tray. If the connection loses, u have to re-do the whole unlock procedure again. The best way to check this is to place your iPhone on your table (after unlocked using Gevey) and see if it signals drop after sometime or not.
      2. The unofficial GSM carrier you are using is smart enough to re-assign (In other words re-authenticate) the TMSI to all of its subscribers after some mins (Could be 2 mins in your case). Note that you have to re-do the unlock procedure everytime the device restart, lose reception for an extended period of time or move to another PLMN.

      See, if someone responds to your call or a computer says something to you -> It means Gevey will work and if your call drops or you get no response then it means 112 will not help you to get TMSI for your iPhone. Anyways, the whole unlock procedure should go like this:

      1-signal-bar
      Searching…
      No Service…
      Gevey SIM (Message)
      1-Signal Bar
      Dial 112
      Put in Airplane Mode
      No SIM card installed (Message)
      SIM Failure (Message)
      Invalid SIM
      1-signal-bar
      Full signal bars

    Yes it works from another phone it says sos call

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

      Lol, it says sos call but what you hear in your speaker? Someone responds to your call?

  •  
    Shansn3 years, 3 months ago

    It is an emergency number in my country but i am very confused what else may be happening ?

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

      If it is an emergency number then do this: Take that SIM out of your iPhone 4 and put it in some other cellphone which is not locked etc. Dial 112 and it should not drop automatically.

  •  
    Shansn3 years, 3 months ago

    It drops itself

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

      It means either 112 is not supported by the SIM you have inserted OR it is not an emergency number according to GSM standards in your country.

  •  
    Shansn3 years, 3 months ago

    btw in the carriers section there are available networks but when i try to choose one it says not available anymore

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

      It has nothing to do with Gevey, i also see carrier section and other carriers in it before using Gevey.

  •  
    Shansn3 years, 3 months ago

    yes i see the welcome message then i say accept then one 1-signal-bar and the other stuff that you told people in the comments but still after searching it says no service .

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

      You never told me the response when you call 112, someone picks your call or the call drops itself?

  •  
    Shansn3 years, 3 months ago

    until i go to settings to turn airplane mode on it says no sim then it says searching after the airplane mode then it says network lost than no service i tried 100 times goin’ crazy need help :D

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

      Wait wait. Do you see Gevey welcome message? After that do you see No Service and then 1-signal-bar?

  •  
    Shansn3 years, 3 months ago

    it still says no service

  •  
    shansn3 years, 3 months ago

    still says no service

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

      When you call 112, what response you get?

  •  
    shansn3 years, 3 months ago

    my? iPhone 4 is 4.1 baseband 2.10.04 i did all the things that you told but after searching a long time it still says no service please help

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

      This means iPhone failed to get TMSI from your network. You need to dial 112 for some more seconds and then put your iPhone in airplane mode.

    sanad3 years, 3 months ago

    hey man,,,
    i’ve read that ppl already asked you and you confirmed that u tested 4.3.3 baseband 4.10.01 to be working fine with gevey sim unlock
    my question is however, r u working with the more recent gevey sim PRO or the first gevey turbo sim that was released? i have the first one that was realeased,,,i am having trouble with push notifications and i want to restore,,,however i’m running 4.3.2 and i’m afraid of upgrading,, (also if u know of a way to fix push notifications without restoring that would be even better)
    I really appreciate ur reply i need it, still new to all of this
    Thanks

    •  
      sanad3 years, 3 months ago

      for example, is this SAM thing good for me? i have no idea why push notifications are not working for me,,,the mobile shop that i bought the gevey sim from upgraded iOS and jailbreaked it for me…

      •  
        Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

        SAM is good for everyone who rely on a hacktivated iPhone. SAM enables Push Notifications and gives you better battery life.

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

      I have two iPhone 4s. One is running 03.10.01 bb and it is unlocked on iOS 4.2.1 using Gevey. Other is on 04.10.01 and it is fully jailbroken and unlocked on iOS 4.3.3 using Gevey. I have normal Gevey SIM now and i am waiting for Gevey Pro to ship. I used SAM http://bit.ly/kRl3Qw to activate my iPhone 4 on iOS 4.3.3 and my Push Notifications are fully working. I haven’t installed Ultrasn0w 1.2.3 with Gevey on iOS 4.3.3 but still i am getting full signal-bars.

      •  
        sanad3 years, 3 months ago

        ok, the most important thing for me to check was that you are using the normal gevey sim and its working with you,,,but then why did u order gevey pro if all is working well?

        So,,,in my case is this what i should do?( making sure i understood)
        1)go ahead and upgrade normally via itunes to 4.3.3 ( no need for any upgrades without itunes or what not, just normally? )|
        2) use SAM to activate so that my push notifications

        please not that i do not have any shsh saved on cydia or what not ( also still new to this so pardon me if i look like i have no clue haha),,,so i can’t restore without upgrading,,i have to do it via itunes, thats y i’m checking that i can safely restore to 4.3.3,,,

        please confirm that i understood right,,my iphone remained in the drawer for a loong time,, i don’t want to mess up my unlock no that it is unlocked!
        Thanks alot man, appreciate ur help:-)

        •  
          sanad3 years, 3 months ago

          another question,,,,if there is any chance at all that upgrading to 4.3.3 will cause any unlock problems,,,it is possible to use SAM to activate and fix push notifications without upgrading ios from 4.3.2 to 4.3.3?

          •  
            Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

            iOS 4.3.3 has less bugs and better battery life than iOS 4.3.2 :)

        •  
          Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

          Lol. I ordered Gevey Pro because i have to review it for you people :)

          1. Restore stock iOS 4.3.3 using iTunes. Jailbreak it with Redsn0w 0.9.6RC16
          2. SAM to activate using Push Notifications
          4. Use Gevey to unlock
          X. You can restore iOS 4.3.3 stock IPSW as many times you want (Without SHSH blobs)

          •  
            sanad3 years, 3 months ago

            i think i understand what to do now! thanks a lot for your help man:-) i hope things work fine with me,, i’ll let u know:-D
            many thanks!
            Cheers

            sanad3 years, 3 months ago

            hey Wolverine,
            I updated my ios yesterday ( it did give an error and failed, but i managed to fix that)
            it is up and running, unlocked with gevey sim, and i jailbreaked with redsnow like you said
            So i am also confirming to everybody that the first gevey sim works with 4,3,3 bb 4,10,01

            anyhow, I still have a problem with push notifications:-S
            here’s what i did,,,i was able to find a friend who has an att sim card ( i am in jordan,,,the sim is old and there is no att here,,) i figured if i activate with the att sim card i would get the push notifications to work without using sam,,,,but no luck,,,so i de-activated and activated with SAM
            it said it was successful but still no luck with push notifications
            i am verifying by using the app ipusher,,and it keeps waiting it doesn’t tell me it is working, i also tried to let someone send me facebook msgs but i i didn’t recieve any notifications

            i noticed that inside SAM, inside utilities,,,it says the following:
            ” push utils: disabled- use deactivate, then activate with itunes( there will soon be an option to fetch a push cert from pushDoctor here)

            i did de-activate and activate via itunes but this msg is still there

            any ideas? please advise
            ps( i’ve noticed that for facebook for example,,,even if the app is running in the background, and the lock screen unlocked i still don’t get notifications!!:-S)

            appreciate your help very much man
            thanks

          •  
            Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

            Uninstall iPusher. Go to Settings -> SAM -> Utilities -> Backup Activation -> Restore Activation -> Reboot -> Sync with iTunes -> Install iPusher -> Reboot -> Make sure connected to Wifi with an active internet connection and then check Push Notifications using iPusher app.

          •

Then is No Service -> I go to Settings -> Phone -> SIM Applications -> English, then I retur to home scree and then i see Gevey Welcome Screen -> Accept and then I have No Service… no change, still No Service.

    Can you help me please?

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

      Reboot your iPhone. Your signal-status will go like this:

      1-signal-bar
      Searching…
      No Service…
      Gevey SIM (Message)
      1-Signal Bar
      Dial 112
      Put in Airplane Mode
      No SIM card installed (Message)
      SIM Failure (Message)
      Invalid SIM
      1-signal-bar
      Full signal bars

      Also do not change anything until you see Gevey welcome message.

      •  
        Jirka3 years, 3 months ago

        Thank you for you quick answer…
        But If I reboot my iPhone I never get Gevey Welcome Screen – I wait a long time and no screen… (iPhone starts -> Slide to Unlock -> Searching(only for 0,000000001 second) and then No Service -> After about 10-20sec Invalid SIM-> SIM Failture -> OK -> In the left corner = Invalid SIM) … no Gevey Welcome Screen…

        •  
          Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

          So you never see 1-signal-bar in your status bar? Also tell me if you see SIM PIN or SIM Applications in Settings -> Phone?

          •  
            Jirka3 years, 3 months ago

            I see 1-signal-bar only once, when I twice on/off airplane mode, but it’s only on 10sec (then Searching -> No Service)

            If I go to the Setting after start iPhone -> Phone -> I see only, SIM PIN; if I twice ON/OFF airplane mod -> I can see SIM Applications (there I try select English, then iPhone shows Gevey Welcome Menu -> Accept -> Searching -> No Service <= thats all)…


            On the internet I noticed, that Gevey Welcome Menu looks different than me … It may be a bug?

          •  
            Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

            Go to Settings -> Phone -> SIM PIN and turn it OFF. Try again by rebooting your iPhone. Also show me what kind of different Gevey Welcome message you ate seeing? Take screenshot by pressing the Home+Power button at the same time.

    Hi, I’m on Ip4 version 4.2.1 (8C148) on bb 03.10.01.
    I’ve purchesed a new Gevey unlock and a new Sim card from my carrier.
    When I put the Sim tray in at step 7 and turn the phone back on I DO NOT get the message asking me to accept.
    Any ideas what’s going on?

    •

      Do you see Searching… or 1-signal-bar in your status-bar?

      •

        Nope, goes straight to No SIM installed

        •  
          Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

          It means your SIM is sitting lose on SIM interposer and SIM interposer is not in proper contact with SIM tray.

          •  
            Yerahcaz3 years, 3 months ago

            Ok will try get it fixed in there. Is it true I require a brand new Sim that has not been used in another mobile device?

          •  
            Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

            No, this is not true. You can use new or old SIM of any carrier with Gevey.

    Gannicruise3 years, 3 months ago

    My iPhone 4 version is 4.1 (BB 2.10.04).

    Gevey was working fine for the past 3 weeks, and even managed to get hold of a service when I travelled to Italy form my home country last Monday (still within Europe). However, all of a sudden I lost service during a phone call and now I cannot get it to work again (i’m still in Italy!!) – it cannot seem to find a service.

    I’m managing to get through entire process but when it comes for the mobile to search for network it displays ‘searching’ for a few minutes and then just displays ‘no service’.

    Any tips on how to resolve problem would be appreciated, especially since I don’t have any other mobile with me and I’m in Italy till Sunday!!!

    Thanks

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

      Dial 112 and see what is response. If call is dropped after dialing 112 or no one responds to the call, it means you cannot use Gevey in that country. To use Gevey, your country should support 112 as standard emergency number.

  •  
    Bernardo Costa3 years, 3 months ago

    •

      Your iDevice is not hacktivated. Either its activated using official carrier SIM or its not jailbroken.

          Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

          On Windows http://bit.ly/ci5E8n or on Mac http://bit.ly/iajGYq (Limra1n is the best jailbreak for iOS 4.1)

            I did it! :) Without Jailbreaking. I updated with Itunes to version 4.3.3 and firmware 04.10.1. Sure they deleted my jaibreak. The point for me is that after calling 112 I need to go fast to Airplane mode, before they give the message no sim card. Thats it for me. It is working now. Thanks for the help. :)

          •  
            Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

            Lol. How did you managed to access Airplane mode from emergency call screen? Either your iPhone should be hacktivated or it should be activated using official carrier SIM.

          •  
            Bernardo Costa3 years, 3 months ago

            When I updated with Itunes I used my original AT&T chip. ( I am in Brazil now) When I called 112 I did not wait two seconds, I just pressed finihed and pressed Home button as fast as I could. At this time the call stays already at the top as if it was active,(a red line to go back to call) but it will expire soon as a I pressed finished before. So I went as fast as to settings and turned on the airplane mode. I confess I need to do this crazy and fast operation many times, but, well, it worked. :) I hope I can help this wonderfull forum with my experience. Thak you again, this place helped me a lot. :) I am very happy now. By the way, my 3g works only with roamming enable. Is it normal?

          •  
            Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

            It is perfectly normal :) To enable 3G using Gevey, you must enable roaming.

    Viper3 years, 3 months ago

    I found something interesting… If the welcome message DOES NOT appear then
    you didn’t input you 4 digit passcode fast enough at the lockscreen.

    Solution:
    1) Either try to enter it as fast as you can (4 digit code)
    2) OR turn off the passcode (Settings–>General–>Passcode Lock–>Turn pass code off… then restart you phone and it should work.

    Let me know if this helps =]

    question: is upgrading from 4.2.1 to 4.3.3 while preserving BB 2.10.04 with Gevey a good idea? and which is preferred for jail-breaking? thnx

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

      In my personal openion: iOS 4.3.3 on iPhone 4 is laggy and provide you with less battery standby time as compared to iOS 4.2.1. If you still want to jailbreak and use Gevey on iOS 4.3.3, i will recommend you to preserve your current baseband by using Sn0wbreezw 2.7 http://bit.ly/k5I7Qu or PwnageTool 4.3.3 http://bit.ly/jMpbKR

      Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

      You are jailbroken and hacktivated on iOS 4.3.3? or you activated it using official AT&T SIM? Just incase your iPhone is not jailbroken or hacktivated, first download Redsn0w 0.9.6RC16 from here http://bit.ly/iHqdFZ and follow guide here http://bit.ly/lAi8at to jailbreak your iPhone.

    Hi,

    I follow each step, and here is what happen

    1. Put SIM and Gevey SIM as shown
    2. Swicth On Phone
    3. 1 signal Bar>>>No Service>> 1 Signal bar again
    4. Accept Message
    5. Call 112 and Hang Up after 2 secs
    6. No SIM Card Installed ..comes immediately after i hang up
    7. Switch On Air Plane Mode
    And thats it nothing happen for several minutes.
    When I Turn Off Airplane Mode it says… searching
    and Then NO SERVICE
    what is wrong here?
    Plz help

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

      Step 6: No SIM Card message should NOT pop-up until you put your iPhone in Airplane mode for 30-45 seconds. Try again but this time call for 3-4 seconds instead. After dropping the call, turn ON Airplane mode as soon as possible. Ideally No SIM card installed message should be followed by SIM Failure message.

      •  
        prerit3 years, 3 months ago

        Tried again. Same Issue and same No SIM INstalled message just before I try to turn ON Airplane mode (being, quite fast)

        There is one more issue, this is T-Mobile Sim which asks for PIN Code whenever it is used. It is getting locked quiet frequently and I had to get it unlock atleast 3 times before i can dial 112. However after that, it get lock again after Airplane Mode is On. So between Step 4 and Step7 it doesnt get lock.

        Do you see if this can be an issue?
        Thnks

        •  
          Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

          Ahhh! Definitely this could the issue as your SIM lock do not allow Gevey to spoof your IMSI when iPhone is in Airplane mode. To turn it OFF, go to Settings -> Phone -> SIM PIN -> OFF. Try again and do let me know how it goes!

            I changed the settings. Sim Lock problem is no longer there.

            However, issue still exist. “NO SIM CARD INSTALLED” message appear before i can Switch ON Airplane Mode. :( Clueless.

            I tried calling 112 for 3-4 secs, but no success.

            Pls suggest

          •  
            Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

            When you call 112 for 2 seconds, you should have 1-signal bar. When you drop call after 2 seconds, you should have 1-signal bar. When you put your iPhone into Airplane mode, you should have 1-signal bar. If you will delay you will get No Service message. If you see No SIM card installed installed message, make sure your SIM sits tight on your SIM interposer and your SIM interposer sits tight on your SIM tray. If there is a lose connection, you will get No SIM card installed message at-once.

            News….it worked…I just started al over again..precise and fast. And it is done. Thanks for the support. You are the Man.!! :)

            One ques: I am new on iPhone. What all can i do? And what all i should not do? On iPhone Unlocked thru Gevey sim..compared to one which is Factory unlocked.

            Tips for smooth run of iPhone. It is 4.2.1 and BB 3.10.01.

            Thanks

            When you are unlocked with Gevey SIM, your iPhone thinks that it has official carrier SIM in it and your network thinks that your iPhone is factory-unlocked. Keep my works in your bank :D Also you are on the best and my personal fav. firmware iOS 4.2.1. I have found all other iOS 4.3.x laggy on my iP4.

          •  
            prerit3 years, 3 months ago

            Ok. Gottcha. Means..I can do watever iPhone is capable of doing it for me. :)

            I will try to remain on this version only. No experiment with what is best.!

            Thanks Again.

  •  
    Gary3 years, 3 months ago

    Hey Wolverine,
    This means all i need to do is let the iPhone be upgraded to the latest build by Apple and then just plug in the Gevey SIM and watch it work ?

    That is awesome !!

    I just hope it works and i wont be stuck with a unlocked iPhone 4 sitting while i have my cut SIM card in it ;-)

      You can either jump to iOS 4.3.3 while preserving your current baseband but you will have to install Ultrasn0w in that case. If you restore stock IPSW, you will still need to jailbreak your iDevice to hacktivate your iPhone using Redsn0w 0.9.6RC16

  •  
    Gary3 years, 3 months ago

    I am currently on 4.2.1 (Baseband 03.10.01) and using Greenp0ison / ultrasn0w.

    I successfully unlocked my phone using the Gevey SIM (only the instructions page comes up in chinese !! )

    I wish to know if i can upgrade to ios 4.3.3 using iTunes 10.2 and then use the Gevey SIM to unlock the phone ?

    All the other times when i have tried to restore a custom/ original iOS , it has given me error 1604.

    Regards,
    Gary

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

      Hi Gary, yep i can confirm that Gevey SIM works on iOS 4.3.3. However you might need to install Ultrasn0w to fix signal-bars issue. If you will upgrade to stock iOS 4.3.3 IPSW using iTunes, it will upgrade your baseband to 04.10.01 but still Gevey can unlock this. iPhone 4 users with baseband 04.10.01 do not need to install Ultrasn0w to fix signal-bars. Also when you try to restore custom IPSW of any firmware, always use iREB to avoid all 16xx erros http://bit.ly/mKemL0

        alex3 years, 3 months ago

        My baseband is 03.10.01 and I’m running ios 4.3.3 on my iphone 4,I had network for a while,however after I restored my backup from my 3Gs,I’ve been unable to get my gevey sim to work…whenever it restarts…the message to dial 112 doesn’t come up…all I see is no service or the occasional tiny bar…need help please

        •  
          Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

          I don’t think you can restore backup of iPhone 3GS on iPhone 4 and even if its is possible, it should have no effect on Gevey SIM’s working. If you see Searching… or 1-signal-bar then it means Gevey is working but the issue is on iOS side. Just reboot your iPhone and try again. Gevey message do pops-up everytime. Even i have to reboot my iPhone for 2-3 times to see Gevey welcome message.

      Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

      Make sure Cellular Data and Data Roaming option is ON in Settings app. If still not works then this could be the faulty piece they have sent you. You must demand a refund or ask them to send you a new piece.

    Searching…

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

      It means your Gevey SIM interposer is working fine. Looks to me more like an iOS bug. Whats your current baseband? If you already have latest baseband (04.10.01) then restore stock iOS 4.3.3 IPSW and then try again!

      •  
        Jose3 years, 3 months ago

        I have 02.10.04 with 4.2.1. Which tool should I use? Should I use a customer firmware or official? I have all the blobs saved.. I need to hacktivate it for now because I don’t have any SIM card (from the original provider) with me.

        •  
          Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

          As you do not have official carrier SIM, so you must restore a custom IPSW to hacktivate your iPhone. Gevey works on both stock and custom firmware. Also if you will try to restore stock iOS 4.2.1 IPSW and jailbreak it with GreenPois0n then it will be of no use because GreenPois0n do not hacktivates your iPhone.

          •  
            Jose3 years, 3 months ago

            I just downgraded to 4.1 and I still see the Searching… I cannot put 4.3.1 or 4.3.2 because I get problems with iTunes. I get error 1. But are you sure the problem is on the IOS? Not on the Gevey?

          •  
            Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

            If you are still seeing Searching… then there could be some issue with Gevey SIM interposer. Can you confirm if your SIM tray look like this http://i.imgur.com/190wR.jpg and interposer look like this http://i.imgur.com/hk8mk.jpg?

  •  
    Jose3 years, 3 months ago

    I don’t see the Gevey screen.. But I bought it in Appleberry.. What does that mean? That I am screwed?

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

      Nops. When you reboot your iPhone, make sure you wait for the Gevey message on the homescreen of iPhone. Do not let your iPhone go in sleep mode. If you bought Gevey SIM from ApplenBerry then it should work fine. Also make sure your SIM sits tight on your SIM interposer and your SIM interposer sits tight on your SIM tray!

      •  
        Jose3 years, 3 months ago

        But I rebooted many times, I tried with different SIM’s and I think I am placing the SIM correctly (it would be very bad luck that I always miss that). As for the message, I never saw that coming. What do you mean into sleeping mode? The black screen?

        •  
          Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

          Yup, iPhone should not go to sleep mode (Black screen). Also do you see 1-signal bar or Searching… in status-bar when you reboot your iPhone?

  •  
    julien3 years, 3 months ago

    I managed to get the gevey work after a couple of times, but when the phone switched off, it won’t work again, tried every option, (cellular data on/off roaming on/off), i am sure the gevey is genuine because it unlocked my iphone the first time, but now it can’t get past airplane step, any ideas? I am desperate :)

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

      Lol, it took me 4 to 5 tries before i actually got my iPhone unlocked using Gevey. If your Gevey do not catches signal of your carrier after u put it in Airplane Mode then it means you failed you get TMSI by dialing 112. Instead of dialing 112 for 2 seconds, dial it for 5 seconds. Also if you do not see the Gevey welcome screen after you reboot your iPhone, there is no need to proceed. Reboot your iPhone again!

      •  
        julien3 years, 3 months ago

        Thank you for answering, actually i get the welcome screen, but i can’t get the “No SIM card installed” error when i put in Airplane Mode, i dial 112 for 1 sec, because i am afraid that someone will answer one the other end :)

        •

          Hi Guys,

          I got some great news for you who got the Iphone’s that dont react after putting them in off with the Airplane mode. I had the problem were I was waiting for hours after signal after turning the Airplane mode ON and nothing happen. Try this:
          >Wait for Welcome screen
          > Call 112
          > Turn ON Airplane mode (3g off, Celluar On, Data Roaming on)
          > While the Airplane mode is ON ( you see the little airplane symbol in the left hand corner, pull out the sim card for two seconds, put it in again (all while the Airplane mode is on) and then turn the Airplane mode OFF again.
          > Wait until the signal bar appears, takes 10 secs for me.

          GOOD LUCK to all of you and hope this works for you too!

          Trägen vinner!

    Hey. I have an Iphone 4 (4.2.1) (3.10.01)
    The phone is Jailbroken with Ultrasn0w. I tried to unlock it with Gevey Sim and followed the instruction carefully and it worked, the signal did came up but only for 15 seconds and then No service or Invalid Sim. I tried it for many times already but theres still no hope.PLEASE HELP!

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

      Nahh. When you use Gevey, never install Ultrasn0w. Also make sure your SIM is sitting tight on SIM interposer and the SIM interposer is sitting tight on SIM tray :P

    Ran Gevey in South Africa on AT&T US locked GSM phone (BB 2.10.xx, and IOS 4.3.2)
    At first it didn’t work. Problem was the instructions in the enclosed booklet and from the firmware was contradictory and as it turned out both wrong.
    Tried these excellent instructions from Wolverine
    Worked first time and 100% on subsequent tries.

    Both on Vodacom and CellC in South Africa

      I am currently using iPhone 3G with T-Mobile.
      I bought an iPhone 4 4.2.1 3.10.01 from the apple store without a contract so it needs to be unlocked before I can use it with T-Mobile. I bought the Gevey sim unlock thing from amazon.com and I want to unlock my iPhone 4.. My question is, my tmobile sim card is not cut into micro sim yet but there is a at&t micro sim already in the iphone 4 that came with it but of course no contract.
      Will I be able to unlock it with that ? I dont want to cut my sim into micro until i know for sure i can use my iphone 4 with my tmobile sim.
      After you unlock it with this, can you put different sim cards in and use it?
      I will be going to Turkey for a little while so i will also get a turkish sim there.. Will i be able to use that?
      Thanks so much !

      •  
        Patrick3 years, 3 months ago

        Yes, try with your AT&T SIM but keep in mind that dialing 112 is strictly prohibited in united states. I assume that your AT&T SIM has no contract but it is active SIM. By active SIM, i mean you can make calls and do SMS or atleast it catches signals. Once you get signals using AT&T+Gevey, this means it should work with your T-Mobile SIM as well.

    Mike3 years, 3 months ago

    Fantastic tutorial – I just wanted to say thanks for putting this up – very helpful. One quick question: I previously jailbroke the device on green poison when I was trying unsuccessful software unlocks for baseband 3.10.01. My current firmware is 4.2.1, and I’d like to upgrade to 4.3.2. Is it safe to do so – will my phone still work with Gevey?

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

      Yup! Gevey works fine on stock or custom iOS 4.3.x firmware. I have tested it myself. It even works on iOS 4.3.3 :D But tell you the truth, i am still fan of iOS 4.2.1. iOS 4.3.x has definitely got some lag issues on iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS.

      •  
        Tony3 years, 2 months ago

        I’m going to use PwnageTool to jailbreak and upgrade my iOS from 4.1 to 4.3.3, Should I leave the gevey sim card inside the phone with the unofficial sim card? or do I have to take it out and do the upgrading and jailbreaking procedure?

        •

          No worries, you can go ahead and jailbreak your iPhone without any issues though its always advisable to remove the SIM. It never really matters :)

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 3 months ago

      This is normal. When you use Gevey, sometimes your status-bar will show NO SIM message (but not for more than 5 seconds) When you turn ON your iPhone, do you see searching or 1-signal-bar in your status-bar?

          This is strange. From where you bought Gevey SIM? In your case, it looks like as if Gevey is unable to spoof the IMSI of your SIM. If you have micro SIM of any other operator around you, give it a try.

        •

      Wolverine3 years, 4 months ago

      See the answer to Németh Bálint above for series of status messages. You only have to dial 112 for 2 seconds. Drop it at once after 2 seconds and put it in Airplane Mode.

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 4 months ago

      Reboot your iPhone. Your signal-status will go like this:

      1-signal-bar
      Searching…
      No Service…
      Gevey SIM (Message)
      1-Signal Bar
      Dial 112
      Put in Airplane Mode
      No SIM card installed (Message)
      SIM Failure (Message)
      Invalid SIM
      1-signal-bar
      Full signal bars

      You need to wait little bit before Gevey SIM message will pop-out on your screen!

    Ive gotten mine to work a couple of times but last time i got it to work i had to put my previous iphones crap on to this new phone from i tunes. So the phone rebooted and i lost signal. Ive been trying to unlock it but everytime i get to the sim failure part after the first airplane mode on and off switch, where im waiting for the no sim card installed message it doesnt do that. Instad on the top left corner one bar appears and it starts searching while the message reads sim failure.

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 4 months ago

      It means your iPhone failed to get TMSI by calling 112. Restart your iPhone and call 112 again (This time for 4-5 seconds) and then drop it. Follow the rest of the procedure described in the above guide.

    I do everything you said here, but I don’t see the “Accept” screen when I turn on the phone. I am using 4.2.1 version with 02.04.10. Can it be that the card was not well cut? When I go to settings it detects my phone number so I am not sure what could be the problem. Any ideas?

        •  
          Wolverine3 years, 4 months ago

          Ok it’ll go like this when you will turn ON your iPhone: 1-signal bar -> Searching -> No Service -> Again 1-signal bar -> Dial 112 for 2 seconds -> Drop 112 call after 2 seconds -> Turn ON Airplane mode immediately -> For for 45 seconds -> Turn Airplane mode OFF.

          •  
            Jose3 years, 3 months ago

            When I try to do what you suggest I get 2 types of behavior:

            1 – Always stays with 1 bar signal and does not change. But it does not me call 112.
            2 – Stays searching for like 10 minutes and then goes to No Service. However it does not come back to 1 bar signal.

            Any recommendations?
