    Default Gevey Sim: How to unlock with a phone that is not activated.
    Hi, I have an iPhone 4 that is not activated because the person I bought it from restored it and now it is stuck on "No SIM card installed insert a valid SIM with no PIN lock to activate phone." I am with ROGERS and the phone is currently locked to ATT. There is no way I can get a ATT sim card to activate it since I am in Canada so I ended up buying a GEVEY SIM Card. I need help/instructions on how to go about unlocking my iphone where I can start using it on ROGERS network. Thanks in advance.

    If you cannot get a ATT sim just use redsnow 0.9.6rc14 to activate it.

    You may need to turn data roaming on.

    I did and when I go to safari and try to connect to a website it says "Could not activate cellular data network You are not subscribed to a cellular data service." The wifi works no problem so there must not be anything wrong with the phone. I also have a data plan with ROGERS that works on my iphone 3GS perfectly. Would you have any other suggestions simon? Thanks for your help.

    Do you need to put APN setting into network settings for Rogers?

    Just a small bump. I need to do the same thing (i just got my free gevey) but before i do are there any drawbacks of doing so? Things like changing baseband, updating OS or preventing me from doing an IMEI unlock (if they do come back).
    I ask this because right now im on 4.1, 2.10.01 and if a software unlock does come out from the dev team in the future i don't wanna blow my chances of getting it unlocked.

    Thanks.
