mine works but it my was very tricky to get it to work. I had to try it about 30 or 40 times to get it just right. I think the trick for me was patience. I wouldnt wait long enough for the next step to happen. maybe when you see no sim card installed, wait a little longer and see if it comes back on.

make sure you disable 3g, cellular data network, and wifi when installing.

I have done all the steps, i tried everything, i took it to a phone service he told me its a hardware problem, but i hardly doubt. Is it possible ?
I' mean i'm one in a million of iphone owners who didn't get his phone to work since Christmas.

are u using tmobile? U have to make sure that the chip on or microship stick with the gevey chip. I know someone that cut the sim by themselves so the sim doesnt match the gevey tray perfectly. Here is how i got it working on my friend phone:
1 put the gevey sim in and wait for the message
2 then dail 112 for 2s ( sometime it needs to take like 3s or 4s. Dont worry its not gonna conect)
3 then it might say invadlid sim or something like that just ignore it and put it on airplane mode wait 15s then turn it off. (U should do this outdoor the phone can get signal easily)If u dont get signal just reboot ur phone and redo the step again.If u havent done like 30 or 40 times, i think its ur geyvey chip got sonme problem ( it might be fake) just buy a new gevey sim
Last time i did it in my room it doesnt get any signal at all then i went outside, did it again. It went through.

STEP 1: Turn off your iPhone 4 and insert your SIM card and Gevey SIM together with the metal SIM tray provided.
STEP 2: Turn on your iPhone 4 and wait for the SIM welcome menu to show and the select “accept”.
STEP 3: At the beginning a “no service” message will show on your iPhone 4. DON’T do anything and wait until you see one signal bar appear on the top left corner.
STEP 4: After you see the signal bar dial “112? and hang up within 2 seconds.
STEP 5: Turn on “Airplane Mood” and then turn off right away. Your iPhone 4 will show “SIM failure” and then “No SIM Card Installed”
STEP 6: Until the “No Sim Card Installed” message shows up turn on the “Airplane Mood” again and turn it off right away again. The “Sim failure” message will show and the signal will show up after a few seconds.
After all the steps above, if there is still no signal then power off your iPhone 4 and turn back on and repeat all the steps from beginning.
To use 3G network you need to turn on “Data Roaming”.
I did that and recommend

Reboot your Iphone
Wait for the message and click "Accept"
Wait for 20 seconds and call 112 for 2 seconds then end call
Go to setting and turn on Airplane mode!
Wait about 45 seconds when "No Sim card Installed" appear and turn off Airplane mode!
if it still not work check if your Gevey is real or counterfeit at http://iphan1th.blogspot.com/2011/04...eit-gevey.html

just wonder or my 2 cents. has the phone been activated or in itunes it loads up?
i'm only asking, i posted in another Thread, i found my new ihpone was not yet activated or somehow itunes need to do something and i unplugged it from itunes 1 more reboot the phone was fine with my knock off gevery. I had to use the origlan ATT sim from Best Buy.

Check your sim card and put it in adapter then try if it work with normal phone.
If it's not make a new free sim card at your carrier center!
