There is no software unlock, not sure if there will ever be. As far as a gevey sim I dont believe they work the same way with a Sprint 4S. From what I have seen some say they dont work with sprint phones and some say only 2G works. Sprint will unlock the phone under certain conditions for you but not for other US carriers, only for international carriers.

Supposedly TPSIM the makers of the very first iPhone 4S sim unlock made a sim to unlock a CDMA device. I personally have not tried it so no guarantee if it works or not.

found this kid selling info on getting it cheaper... it kinda worked for me. It saved me around 10 bucks. This TPSIM works great for my 4s from Sprint with 3g and all.

The TPSIM works for all CDMA carriers, there is one version for each CDMA carrier... this turbo sim was made by the China Sn0w team which was the first team to develop an unlock solution for the 4s but since ApplenBerry and the gevey brand was more renowned they were ignored by the press and tech blogs.... I think they sold the technology to a bunch of companies and that's why there are lots of unlock sim card interposers now (R-sim, Gevey Ultra S, GPP-Sim, etc) but this TPSIM is the very original one.
The only downside to this is that your phone has to be on either 5.0 or 5.0.1 to work.
Here's the YouTube video showing how it works...

You can buy it on eBay although they are going for around 50 bucks right now... there's a seller selling info on getting it for 10 dollars less... This is his seller's profile...

He probably has more listings there...
BTW this TPSIM thing does support 3g networks as you can see on the video. Just remember that the 4s doesn't support 3G band on T-mobile for instance and that's not related to the unlock rather in a technical specification that the 4s doesn't have...
