One of the biggest headaches that an iPhone owner has to deal with if he doesn't want to use an official carrier is unlocking.

What is Gevey Ultra 5.1 SIM?

How Gevey Ultra 5.1 works?
So how does Gevey Ultra 5.1 works? Your SIM card contains many different information but when it concerns the matter of unlocking, the IMSI (International Mobile Subscriber Identity) is the one that's worth taking note of because it corresponds to your account in the carrier's database. Apple introduced a new authentication method called 4-byte TMSI (Temporary Mobile Subscriber Identity) which is used to check each handset before IMSI.
In order to bypass this security measure by Apple, Gevey SIM makes use of the emergency number 112 to secure the TMSI for your connection. In order to avoid the TMSI from being identified as fake, utilizing the Airplane mode toggle is necessary. By spoofing the IMSI and ICCID, the carrier will think that the handset is actually factory unlocked. For a more detailed explanation check out our featured write-up on how Gevey SIM works.
