04-23-2011, 03:18 PM #1Gevey 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.

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.

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.
