I know it's not the real gevey manufacturer releasing these, but they are starting to flood the market here quickly. I'm thinking of picking one up when it drops under $10. If you a gevey supreme already, what do you think about it? Does it work? Do you lose data when you reboot your phone (without redoing an unlock procedure)?
[Background info- currently I'm using a fake gevey (bought it from ebay from a distributor of gevey.us - same company that makes the gevey supreme), and I'm able to reboot my a phone without losing signal, but I don't get data - it's really kind of a pain in the @ss because it requires popping the sim tray to get the welcome menu again (and I'm not going to use my phone without data working- wtf is the point of even having an iphone without data, you know?). Not sure if I already have a gevey supreme that came in the normal gevey packaging or if they fixed that issue on the gevey supreme]

There is a person on another forum claiming to have one. Said it works as advertised, but didn't give any more details than that.

I bought 1 yesterday, it works in a couple of reboots then after that when i reboot once more there no signal, i did those reboots to enable the edge on tmobile us, but it didnt, now it isnt working at all,
Im back using gevey turbo pro, and its hard specially im using a defender otter box,
But i learned one trick so i dont have to remove the sim out when redoin the process..
Ill stick on gevey turbo for a while..

I actually sell them on a local classifieds listing here where I live. The last poster is pretty much correct as I've been noticing the same thing. I've only had them since the pre-order ended as the manufacturers wouldn't release them before that date. The main issue I've been seeing is the client's iPhones won't maintain a data connection with some of the MMS fix software I use. I install the gevey and the user has edge. Then I apply the mms and facetime fix and the data connection goes away. And for some reason, without that connection, their picture messaging doesn't work. Right now I'm pretty stumped on the issue but I will figure it out.
One other issue I've been seeing and actually had today on two iphones at the same time. The client's phones showed full bars and then would drop to one bar and then go into searching. It would maintain a searching status for 30 seconds and then go back to full bars. This would continue for as long s I had the mms fix installed.

EDIT- It looks like gevey pass is the same thing as gevey supreme in the yellow packaging. If you look on the following link, it advertises the same thing- "only need to dial 112 once"- and it requires the same unlocking process.

Yesterday night I rebooted the phone and tried the installing ultrasnow thing out (and it worked better than removing the sim), but I ran through 30% of the battery overnight (and there were no apps open in the background and the only thing I did before I went to bed was re-unlock the phone through the gevey process), so I want to say ultrasn0w was causing the excess battery drainage, but not sure why it would do that.

Hi, I'm new to this whole unlocking thing and I'm so confused as to whether or not I should get the Gevey Supreme or the Turbo Pro?When there's a will, there's a way.
06-23-2011, 12:28 PM #13
You just need to do the 112 steps only ONCE, the first time you put it in.
THEN, there is NO NEED
Even if you turn off the phone, the signal and 3G comes up great.
PS: Note that, I have read around the Gevey Supreme Yellow (presumably 1st gen) works great in US, Russia, ..., but its 3G may not come up automatically at some locations (Shenzhen China, Turkey, ...) Gevey Supreme Red (2nd gen) is fixed, and more reliable, and its 3G works everywhere. So if you're in the US, feel free to get the Yellow version, as its a bit cheaper. BUT if you're going to travel around, get the RED version.
Here's a video showing Supreme works without need to dial 112 all the time, as it picks up automatically
By the way, got mine from here: http://www.mobilroad.com/mobile-phon...ck-yellow.html $17.99 right now (couple of bucks shipped with tracking)

The video you linked to does not show the mobile data connection coming back automatically.

Yeah, the data not coming back is a HUUUUGE flaw. If you want mobile data every time (I do), then that adds an additional annoying step over the Gevey Pro. DO NOT WANT.

Correct. But in the US it works, it is working with AT&T. the one on the video is from abroad and that is probs 3G issues with the yellow version.
That is why yellow version is probs OK if u'll be in the us, but red one is recommended if going to travel around, like to europe, and want 3G.
Agreed i say NEVER release a product when its tested AND tested, AND, tested again EVERYwhere.
But Yellow one also ok in the US

Weaksos, what carrier are you using your Gevey Supreme with?
