    Default Iphone 4 Black, AT & T , unlock through gevey sim
    Hi to all,

    I come from Italy, and I have an iphone locked with At&T, my brother in USA used it up to 1 month ago.

    It worked well with another sim, not AT&t! He unlocked it through gevey sim (not ULTRA, only GEVEY)

    Now I'm in Italy and I want to unlock my iphone but when I switch it on, it appears the classic image of the connect cable and the itunes logo. If I connect it to itunes , it says that my sim is not supported.

    How can I activate my iphone through gevey?

    Thank you!

    If you updated it to 5.X firmware and have the grey activation screens then a gevey wont work on it. You will have to get it officially unlocked. There a a number of sites that can do it for a ATT iPhone. I personally use officialunlocks.com. If you email them you can get a better price by saying you are an MMi member.

    If your activation screen is black then you are most likely on 4.X firmware so your gevey will still work, you will need an ATT sim to activate though, or you can hactivate with redsnow.

    I think that I'm in the second group . I've a black activation screen!!! But I don't have a ATT sim. How can I do? Only a Custom Firmware can save me? Thanks

    No, you can hactivate with redsnow 0.9.12b2. It will get you past that activation screen.

    Just run it, select jailbreak and install cydia.

    Yes, you should confirm what your modem firmware is first after activating though. You can find that in settings/general/about.

    Ok. I did it, and it works. Also the gevey works at all!!!

    But Now I noticed that I'm on fw 4.3.1 and I would like to upgrade to 5.1.1.

    Is it Possible?

    Thank you in advance!

    Ok, if you want to go to 5.1.1 then your first step is do you have 5.1.1 SHSH?

    Custom firmware, regular firmware, doesn't matter. No SHSH, no 5.1.1.

    ...And is it possible to unlock an iphone through gevey sim on iOS 6?
    Redsnow works also for this Firmware? Or not yet?

    gevey is not dependent upon iOS version, it is dependent upon the baseband version

    if you go to Settings -> General -> About and scroll down to see where it says "Modem Firmware" that is the baseband version and gevey only supports a certain number of baseband versions

    Ok! It's true what u say! But to use the Gevey I have to hacktivate my iPhone through redsn0w, and to do it I need to jailbreak it... And I don't think I could jailbreak an iPhone iOS 6 yet... Is it correct?
