05-14-2011, 12:09 AM #1Legit vs. Fake Gevey Pro Guide WITH PICS!!!!
ebay listing to 100% legit gevey pros (30- day warranty) http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=250810149239
** just fyi gevey doesn't even make a "no sim cut needed" sim. **
most of the fakes are made by i-smart sim (aka ismartphone which had a horrible rep during the iphone 3g turbo sim era) they also sell unbranded ones while branding others as gevey.

Hey, this is awesome for people wanting to know if they got fakes or the real thing. Thanks so much for posting this.

Interesting. But why does it matter if it is real or fake when both appear to work? (I assume the fake ones work because the people who sell them on ebay seem to have almost all positive feedback for their fake gevey sales).

Sometimes depending on the quality of the fake, the performance isn't very good. The fake ones work, they just either don't work well or they crap out on you in a short amount of time.
It depends on if the fake is a pretty good quality or not. Just because they all work doesn't mean they're all the same. I'm sure if someone bought a pair of Nikes and they got some fakes in the mail, they'd be upset. They're still shoes and work the same as any other shoe though. Or not? Sometimes brand = quality (not all the time but a lot of the time)

My 2 cents. I got a regular Gevey (may be fake, I dunno) on ebay from a Hong Kong seller with thousands of positive feedback. The only reason I suspect its fake is because I paid less than $10 including shipping.
Ive had no battery drain issues whatsoever. Wish they were untethered.

i am glad i am not been crazy i thought it was the iphone rentina screen killing my bat but my friend had bought a fake gevey but it was a ***** to get activated but when it worked it never drained the bat

Anything that says "no cut" is a fake!
They ALL have to be cut. Run away fast

My eBay knock off is fine for now. Battery is fine. Signal does random reconnects or drops. But calls are fine when connected.

GEVEY TURBO SIM UNLOCK IPHONE 4 | eBay
From what Ive read, the Gevey Pro has battery drain issues, but is more compatible with newer basebands. Im on 2.10.04 (one of my iPhones), and the regular Gevey works just fine.

Also, based on what people are saying in this thread, it actually sounds like the fake gevey sims are better than the real ones.
