After a long silence, ApplenBerry, the official distributor of Gevey SIM, finally made an official statement of the iPhone 4 unlock status which is still actively being worked on by Gevey Team in China.
UPDATE: Unlock your AT&T iPhone permanently. Read more here.
Their last announcement was made back in February when they said there’s something “promising” for iPhone 4 users who are stuck on baseband 4.11.08 and 4.12.01. However, March came and there was still no news about the unlock. That made their followers furious and posted all sorts of negative messages on their Facebook wall.
Today they’re back again with the following announcement on their Facebook page:
“I understand the confusion people. As of today, our developers have not yet found an exploit that will allow our GEVEY hardware to unlock iPhones with modem firmware 4.11.X and above. Believe me when I tell you, we are working day and night to be the first to bring this unlock solution to market. While it is now perfectly legal to unlock cellular phones, network providers and equipment manufacturers are making it increasingly harder to do so. But when we do finally have it, rest assured we’ll tell the world. Hang in there guys!“
This news would make many people disappointed for sure but if you have an AT&T locked iPhone 4, don’t dismay as it’s possible for you to request for an unlock without paying a single cent. Many users have reported success.
The only “reliable” option for now is the R-SIM IV, which is expected to be launched “soon.”
