08-21-2012, 12:52 PM #1Unlocking un-activated Verizon iPhone 4S with Gevey
I have an unactivated iPhone 4S for Verizon and i want to unlock it for T-mobile using Gevey Ultra S
I purchased a Gevey which came with a white SIM and a Gevey Ultra SIM
When i put my Gevey SIM along with T-mobile.. it keeps telling activation required
i tried jailbreaking it and installing the furious mod from cydia, but none worked...
Can any one help me please

Ignore the activation message.
You will need to put the gevey chip in with the white sim card and power cycle the phone.
It will ask you which carrier the phone was on, select verizon. Click accept and it will exit to home screen.
Take the sim card out within 10 seconds or you may have to repeat this step.
Place your tmobile sim card with the gevey in the phone and power cycle again.
It should give you a 6 digit code which you will need to enter into the furious mod app that was installed via cydia.
Once thats done you should have service. You may want to try turning airplane mode on and off and waiting for service. Also try power cycling the phone a few times.
There is an sms issue with the gevey ultra s on cdma phones. I've had some that sms text stops working for random periods of time. applenberry clamins they are working on a fix.

Are you sure you have a VERIZON iPhone 4S? Verizon phones don't have sim cards (I'm using a Verizon iPhone 4 on MetroPCS)
I'm thinking you have a GSM iPhone.

The iPhone 4S on any carrier needs to be officially activated. @eddied316, Verizon iPhone 4S has a SIM slot, it has GSM capabilities when unlocked.

@i.Annie. I didn't know that! Must be something only on the 4S! I just took the case off my Verizon 4, and no Sim.
Sorry for giving wrong information.

Yes, the 4S is a bit different from the rest. Not a problem though, everyone makes mistakes (I certainly do). You learn something new every day.
