There’s some good news today for CDMA iPhone 4S owners who like to unlock their devices as the Gevey Ultra S unlock tool has just been released. This means that Sprint and Verizon iPhone 4S users can now benefit from a new hardware unlock that will mean they can use their iPhone’s on a GSM network as well.
Other unlocks such as Gevey SIM, TP SIM and R-SIM already became available last month but those didn’t allow Sprint and Verizon iPhone 4S owners to use their handsets on a GSM network. Following this, TP SIM developers then came up with a Verizon iPhone 4S unlock a couple of weeks ago and now Gevey has joined the action with its unlock, not only for Verizon’s iPhone 4S but also Sprint’s as well. It can also be used on GSM variants.
We can’t recommend that reader’s use unlock tools but we know that many of you do and enjoy the freedom of being able to use your iPhone’s on other carrier networks. The Gevey Ultra S for CDMA unlock solution supports 1.0.11, 1.0.13 and 1.0.14 basebands on Verizon and Sprint iPhone 4S’s. How to Arena advises that those with the GSM iPhone 4S do not need to jailbreak their device before using the unlock but simply insert the SIM. However those with a CDMA iPhone 4S need to jailbreak the device first as this SIM uses furiosmod to unlock devices.
The Gevey Ultra S CDMA/GSM unlock for iPhone 4S can be ordered on the ApplenBerry website here and the price is $60 plus shipping. There is important product information available at this link too. Those who wish to purchase the unlock SIM can pre-order now with shipping taking place between March 22 and March 27. One very important note though is that this SIM will NOT work on an iPhone 4S that has already been updated to iOS 5.1 as Apple changed the baseband but many of you keen on jailbreaking and unlocking your devices will have steered clear of the latest iOS update.
Are you pleased to hear about this latest unlock tool and will you be using it on your iPhone 4S? What for you is the main advantage of having an unlocked iPhone?
