For those who have purchased Rebel’s promising Micro SIM card for unlocking iPhone 4, we hate to bring bad news to you that it’s now official that the product is fake!
We have been following a few iPhone forums and we would like to let you know that many people who have made the purchase but have yet to receive them.
The following was taken from gsmhosting’s forum:
It is also reported on some websites that the “Rebel” SIM is a really bad copy of Gevey Turbo SIM. Worst of all, it does not even work!
Here’s another discussion on another forum:
Last but not least, we feel really sorry for this Filipino guy on YouTube who bought so many of these and got the fakes instead.
He reported that:
- They were shipped from Hong Kong when it is stated that on their website that they are made in the UK
- The custom SIM tray had the word “Gevey” on it but was sanded off
- The size of the chip is not as small as shown on the 3D rendering of the image (see above). You still need to trim your SIM card.
- Again, the chip is too thick to fit into an iPhone, he had to sand off the chip
- There is no such thing as “untethered” unlock – he had to do the exact steps used in Gevey Turbo SIM
- The sales team at Rebel was not very helpful (they said “go to hell”, “F-word” etc.)
- It works exactly the same as the Gevey Turbo SIM!
Now it’s up to you to believe this or not. We hope we did something for the iPhone community by giving everyone a warning!
