How to Unlock Your iPhone 4 Using Gevey Sim

Follow the below steps to unlock your iPhone 4 using Gevey Sim. You will have to run basebands 03.10 and 10 and 04.10 that are not factory unlocked.

Currently, there is no software for the basebands and there are two methods available for your unlock.

Purchase an Official Unlock

If you conduct a Google search, you will find quite a number of websites that offer online unlocks of basebands at affordable prices, but you need to be careful as I cannot guarantee the validity of some of those sitesU

Use the Gevey Sim

The Gevey SIM unlock uses a SIM interposer which sits between the baseband hardware and the SIM card itself to perform the unlock procedure, causing iPhone 4 basebands 01.59.00, 02.10.04, 03.10.01, 04.10.01 to be ready for unlocking.

The use of Gevey Sim to unlock your phone could be quite inconvenient for you at times especially in areas that have poor network coverage. For this reason you will have to repeat the unlock procedure if the signal is lost for more than two minutes.

Step 3: You will wait to get a message that says, “No Sim Card Installed”.

Step 4: Switch off airplane mode after you have received the message. Your phone will unlock itself after showing “Sim Failure” for a couple of seconds.
