If your iPhone 4 has a custom firmware, there is a chance that it may not work. Restore your iPhone 4 to the original iPhone 4 firmware. Download original firmware here.
If after booting up the iPhone 4, and you do not see the “Accept” screen, make sure you have an active SIM card and that it is correctly inserted.
If you see ‘No SIM card installed’ as soon as you insert the Turbo SIM, it’s defective. Get it replaced.
If you get ‘No SIM card installed” as soon as you dial 112, your SIM card is too old. Get a new SIM card.
If you have a very old SIM card, most likely it will not work. Replace it with a new SIM card.
If all fails you might have a low quality, imitation Gevey Turbo SIM! :(
