I thought that getting it factory unlocked would be the wise option. Plus i got it at a good deal on craigslist.
You sound like a salesperson for your website.

The newest Gevey supports both 5.0.1 and 5.1 doesn't it? Or at least that's what I read on Applenberry.. so what're you paying like, $130 for? The non existent iOS 6..?

You said you wanted it for updates.. but there's not an update that Gevey doesn't support right now, haha. I don't get what you really needed the factory unlock for..

For Instructions on how to Unlock without loosing your jailbreak
Call me cynical, but I would've thought that spelling and grammar would've been easy to get right for a reputable organisation. The capitalization of I in 'instructions' and 'loosing' instead of 'losing' would indicate otherwise...

Presumably the easiest way would be to pay the ETF.

I got my 4S replaced by Apple so the IMEI of the new phone wasn't tied to my contracted number anymore. I had an additional non-contract line with AT&T, so I just told them that the new IMEI belonged to that line. Now my 4S is unlocked.

I just wanted to be on the safe side because apple in the future will close the gevey loophole and as you all know getting a software unlock like ultrasn0w has not yet been possible since the baseband 4.11.08.

@Xb0xGuru
about the grammar, are you really going to be that picky ?

It's either:
Proof of Purchase at full price
or
Account information including: phone number, account number, passcode on the account.
also
you need to be able to walk on water and cure cancer.

after that you will be unlocked
