In his YouTube page, he gave out these hints:

“For those you with a prepaid T-Mobile Sim card.

Prior to activating 5.0. Do any of you get any bars or edge symbol?

Make sure your phone is not connected to Wi-Fi. When going through the activation process make sure you use connect via cellular network

Once you get to activate your iPhone it will fail. At this point you will enter your AT&T MicroSim. To activate your phone

Once the phone is activated turn off automatic carrier by entering the T-Mobile Sim card”

Based on his updated video, he performed the unlocking on an iPhone 4S with baseband 1.0.11. Here’s what I understand:

  1. Insert original carrier AT&T SIM card
  2. Dial 611 for AT&T customer service hotline and drop the call
  3. Turn on Airplane Mode
  4. Take out AT&T SIM card
  5. Insert T-Mobile SIM card
  6. Make sure WiFi is off (he also tapped on ‘Forget this Network” to make sure it doesn’t connect automatically later)
  7. Switch off Airplane Mode and iPhone will search for network. This is followed by the Apple splash screen appearing.
  8. Activation Required will be displayed on the screen
  9. EDGE network will activate automatically – notice the ‘E’ on the top left corner of the screen
  10. Wait for about 20-30 seconds and turn off the phone
  11. Turn on iPhone and the same Activation Required screen will be displayed
  12. When you see one signal bar, tap on Use Cellular Connection
  13. Eject SIM card
  14. Activation Required screen will be displayed the second time
  15. Insert SIM card
  16. Unlocked!
