    Default 3G network not working on iphone 4 after GEVEY unlock
    My iphone 4 3G network is not working. It shows 3G beside ROGERS and I do have data roaming on but every time I try to access the web it gives me this: "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. Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks in advance!

    EDIT:

    *btw the phone is a USA phone which was originally locked to AT&T it is now unlocked with GEVEY and I am using it in Canada with ROGERS.*

    I did not have to enter APN #'s for my 3GS. I do not have them how would I go about gaining access to this number? Thanks! *btw the phone is a USA phone which was originally locked to AT&T it is now unlocked with GEVEY and I am using it in Canada with ROGERS.*

    connect to wifi
    on safari go to unlockit.co.nz
    click continue
    now hit custom apn
    then carrier
    select Ca-rogers or rogers 2 (may have to try both)
    then hit create profile
    then hit install after it pops up

    as long as your in the allowed area theres no way they could charge you for roaming until you leave the allowed area

    Unhappy Signal goes to "No Service" once 3G is turned on(Unlocked using SAM Activation)

    Hi,
    I have unlocked my Iphone 4(which is originally from AT&T) using SAM Activation and now using it with Airtel(India). The problem is my phone supports only Edge("E") and when I turn on 3G, the phone is not picking up the signals and goes to "No service". Once I turn back the "Enable 3G" to off, the signal comes back live.

    Even I tried editing the APN using the way you had mentioned here but no use . Could you throw some light on it?

    Thanks Devoured, worked perfectly!!

    I have an Iphone 4s 5.1.1 locked to Bell Mobility in Canada, and unlocked with the Gevey Ultra S sim to use on Taiwan Mobile network in Taiwan.

    Originally when trying it would only unlock the phone to make phone calls on the Taiwan mobile network, no data or SMS, but after following your instructions it now works perfectly for calls, SMS, internet, imessage. It did only work though once I enabled Data Roaming on the phone.

    Thanks again
