    Do you happen to have installed "springtomize" on your ip4? Uninstall it to save your ip4 battery.

    I had the same issue. Try turning off your Push notifications and see if that works.

    Same issue here. Brand new iPhone and have a draining battery. How many battery cycles do you have on your phone? What is the firmware? Are you JB?

    I had 4.2.1 and JB with Greenpoison, after a few complete battery cycles I managed to get decent batter (e.g., 5 hours usages and 1 day 4 hours standby).

    I updated to 4.3.1 and JB with RedSnow and now my battery is just horrible again. Numerous things could be attributed to the battery issues in my case though.

    Try to get a new prepaid sim card, an old sim card does not work with Gevey.

    Does it matter whether or not I'm on a postpaid plan? Can I buy a prepaid sim card and activate it for use on my postpaid plan?

    Folks, there is a difference between a legit gevey and a counterfeit one.

    The counterfit sim tray has a larger font, and the GEVEY symbol is not as detailed. The sim tray is cheaply made, slightly smaller and has a more polish look. The genuine GEVEY sim tray is an exact color of the iPhone 4 body.


    The majority of the problems with the counterfeit is that they are poorly made. They used an older model IC chip which is larger in size. To make it fit into the iPhone 4, the chip is sanded down making the internal guts exposed to air. With the sand down IC chip you will have overheating issues.

    Just wanted to answer my own question. I bought a Tmobile USA Prepaid T139 from Target and I just had Tmobile transfer all of my information to the new sim. They said it would take up to 2 hours for it to activate. No fee to transfer old number to new sim. Paid $20 at my local target.

    Just look for it on eBay. Search for "gevey" then sort by lowest price plus shipping, and then click Buy It Now. I only believe in US sellers, so I select US sellers only. Is that so difficult for you to do on your own???

    I did that couple of times, but after hearing lot of comments of selling fake gevey sims. I'm actually afraid of getting one and wasting my money. some even cost for only 10$,
    I'm just awaiting for those who already purchased one and actually bought an original. but thanks for accomodating.

    I don't agree..
    it's still gevey...
    and if the seller still have positive feedback, it's not really matter...

    Isnt that just the copy+paste from the gevey site?

    I gotta say, some of the parts is untrue. Yes its different size, yes the tray is different. But u CAN fit the sim card without sanding the IC Chip, I'm using it right now. So i'm not too sure about the overheating problem if u dont sand the IC Chip.

    Just be sure it isn't a fake! The real thing works much better I heard.

    Hey guys,

    i have a question regarding this. So i got my iphone4 (US AT&T) back in November and im thinking of picking up either gravy sim or the micro rebel sim. Anyway my question is that i don't think my iphone has been activated yet since it did not come with an AT&T sim card and im based in the UK, so would i have to purchase a AT&T sim card and activate the phone before i can use a UK sim?

    Default Gevey Sim in India
    Hello guys,does anybody know of a genuine source of gevey sim in India?

    Also one of the guy is selling 4 different types of gevey sim saying they have a quality difference.I suspect this is not true and there is no such thing as 4 different quality types in a gevey sim.They are either fake or real.

    Pls advice.

    Thnks.

    Yes, you will need an AT&T or the original carrier's sim to activate your iPhone. That's the way it has always been.

    You can also hacktivate it by using a custom firmware via sn0wbreeze of pawnage tools.

    I've been told before that using a custom FW makes the Gevey sim incompatible. You also need a fairly new carrier SIM to use with Gevey.

    As a side note, I was able to use the Gevey sim on a phone with custom FW. Your mileage may vary though.
