A new remote unlocking method using your IMEI is available for all GSM iPhones that promises to unlock all iPhones on any baseband without jailbreaking it. Yes! It will also unlock your iPhone 4 on baseband 02.10.04, 03.10.01, 04.10.01 including iPhone 3G/3GS on bb 05.14.xx, 05.15.xx and 05.16.xx which cannot be unlocked using iPhone Dev Teams free Ultrasn0w.
Many websites promises to permanently unlock your iPhone using this method but the price is almost thrice as compared to GEVEY SIM ranging between $150 to $200. So, should you buy GEVEY or Rebel Micro SIM or go via this method? Or should you wait for free ultrasn0w to come?
We would recommend to refrain yourself from buying GEVEY or Rebel, as it uses 112 emergency number and only unlocks your iPhone for certain baseband and firmware. As far as Ultrasn0w unlock is concerned, we do not see any update coming soon. You can however, give a try to this method which would “OFFICIALLY” and permanently unlock your iPhone without having to give a jailbreaking treatment. Even the hacker community has acknowledged its legitimacy. You can try Negri Electronics (available for $175 only), CutYourSim or SuperPaddy. All of them have decent past history.
The well-established online unlockers for other cellphone brands are suddenly today selling iPhone unlocks..obviously something opened up
iPhone is being repaired now so can’t test, but I know @CutYourSim is legit thru past dealings. I’m positive his unlock offerings are legit.
This does NOT affect your warranty status, because this is an official iPhone unlock. We will update this post as soon as we get more information on how this method works. Just follow us on Twitter or become a Facebook fan.
