    Question Is iPhone 4S unlock possible?
    What's up guys? so, a friend is getting a 4S brought (used) from the US and he wants me to unlock it. My first guess was no way! since there hasn't been any ultrasn0w updates that work with the 4S's baseband as far as I know. But then I thought what I did with the 3GS (updating to the iPad baseband, then unlocking). Now, watching MY 4S (factory unlocked) the baseband says 2.0.12 and as I recall, iPad's was 6.15.something so I would be able to update it..
    Would this work?
    I don't want him to buy something that he won't be able to use, also I don't want to get his hopes up for nothing. Thanks for your help! I appreciate it

    I think the only way to get a 4S unlocked is a factory unlock and a gevey sim not sure if the gevey still works thow.

    That's not possible. You can't install iPad baseband on a 4S

    I bought a 4S about a week ago from the US, pick them up cheap enough on eBay, I got mine factory unlocked for $10 got it done from some lad on eBay.

    Make sure if you are to buy one to have it activated or buy a AT&T sim on eBay too, had to wait another week for my sim to come. Although people are selling 4S cheap now because of the 5, at least in Ireland anyway.
