GEVEY Turbo Sim: New Hope for iPhone 4 Unlock?

by Mahesh Kukreja · 43 comments

in Apple

A team from China, GeveyTeam, has demonstrated a video showing Chinese telecom operator’s SIM working on the locked basebands, 02.10.04 and 03.10.01 of iPhone 4. The iPhone 4 on iOS 4.1 and 4.2.1 is locked for a long time now, and recently @MuscleNerd confirmed that the iPhone Dev Team doesn’t have any working exploit for the basebands on iOS 4.1/4.2.1/4.3.

I did a little research on Google about Turbo SIMs and Gevey. With Gevey Turbo SIM, you don’t need to jailbreak your iPhone 4 to unlock it. The team has successfully unlocked iPhone 4 on iOS 4.1 and 4.2.1 with basebands 02.10.04 and 03.10.01 respectively. They are now working to make the Turbo SIM work with iOS 4.3 baseband 04.10.01.

The Gevey Turbo SIM will be release on March 18th or March 21st, according to the following tweet. The pricing is not yet disclosed. But I think the price will be reasonable as a large number of users are stuck with locked iPhone 4s.

Gevey Turbo SIM availability & pricing

Note: ApplenBerry is an online repair/accessory shop for the iPhone and BlackBerry.

Check out the demo video showing Gevey Turbo SIM in action on the iPhone 4.

Gevey Team Blog quotes:

We are working on this for very long time and finally got close to a sucess. We are going to bring it out right after apple releasing iOS 4.3. It works compatible with baseband 01.59.00, 02.10.04 and also 03.10.01. No Jailbreak needed! No software unlock! Not breaking your warranty!

We have sucessfully unlocked iPhone 4.1 and 4.2.1, just to wait until iOS 4.3 out to release it. Right now we need to finish some details

At this moment, you do not need to buy a GEVEY turbo sim for you iPhone. All iPhone iOS versions except iPhone4 4.1(baseband 02.10.04) and iPhone4 4.2.1(baseband 03.10.01) had been unlocked by ULTRASN0W. We do not answer any questions for it.

For unlocking iPhone4 4.1(baseband 02.10.04), iPhone4 4.2.1(baseband 03.10.01) and newer version, please wait for GEVEY turbo sim to be released

Let’s hope tho method works and what ApplenBerry claims is right.

Arik May 1, 2011 at 9:12 am

@MAHESH, same thing happened to me.
It works well but it seems like the Cellular bar is on the first lowest level permanently. Is that ok?


Admin May 1, 2011 at 9:33 am

Yes it’s fine.


Akshay May 13, 2011 at 1:56 pm

Pramesh Gurung May 29, 2011 at 10:16 pm

I unlock my i phone with gevey sim, but when the network lost one time,will not come back anymore, Every time i have to get the technician why???


Admin May 29, 2011 at 11:04 pm


When you lose network, you have to redo the 112 procedure to get network.


Eve June 10, 2011 at 1:49 am

Does this work for the Iphone 3GS with IOS 4.1 and a baseband of 5.14.02?

So, when you insert the gevey sim card, you pair it with whatever the sim card is from the carrier you sign up with?


Admin June 10, 2011 at 10:28 am

The concept of GEVEY works with iPhone 3GS also. But there is no turbo sim available for 3GS for iOS 4.1 and latter.


app'ez June 18, 2011 at 1:27 pm

I wonder what new version is this ? Is it even legit ? As applenberry claims tht gevey supreme and pro plus are not gevey products so is there a chance that this might be the untethered one officially from gevey-3g/applenberry ? No where on the website does it say that they have launched this. Please reply with your views.


Admin June 18, 2011 at 1:35 pm


GEVEY Supreme Pro Plus is not by GEVEY-3G or Applenberry. It is launched by some other company. And it requires you to dial 112 for the first time you use it. I’ll be posting a separate review of GEVEY Supreme Pro Plus soon. Stay tuned!


Shawn July 2, 2011 at 7:51 pm


Does gevey Ultra sim require to dial 112 or 911 etc.?? does it really work in Mumbai? I am planning to buy one soon but need some a support from you.

Thanks & Regards



Admin July 2, 2011 at 8:00 pm


GEVEY Ultra does work without requiring to dial 112 manually. You’ll need to jailbreak and install a Cydia tweak, FuriousMod, which will carry out the 112 procedure everytime your iPhone reboots. I’ve put up a complete review in this post


raj patel July 30, 2011 at 2:37 pm

gevey ultra sim can accept idea,vodafone,tata docomo,airtel,bsnl,reliance?


Admin July 30, 2011 at 7:51 pm


Gevey works with all networks.
