    There are two types of Gevey Ultra S turbo sims. GSM and CDMA. The GSM gevey according to AppleNBerry's site unlocks iOS 6. The one you would need is a CDMA Gevey, which doesn't unlock iOS 6.

    No.
    Even if you wanted you cannot downgrade a 4S to iOS 5 any more now that your on 6.0

    You can use an itunes gift card or any other major credit or debit card.
    Without that you cannot open a new itunes login.

    Actually it is possible to create an AppleID without a credit card. Follow this article. However, if you created an AppleID say through MobileMe or iCloud, you will have to provide some type of billing information to use the same account with iTunes.

    Its probably because of the gevey unlock.
    Leave it alone, if everything else works get over it.
    With a hardware unlock hack you cant expect everything to work perfect, the only thing that doesnt is carrier name display and signal bar.

    i just notes i was able to TXT through my apple ID not through my Service Provider, i don't have data plan, so when i am not connected with WIFI i am not able to send or receive TxT msg. at start up it try to activate phone and say it may take some time, but never activate, so i was thinking may be there is some way to activate or bypass activation without any issue ? may fix NO SERVERICE Issue

    The same problem

    Hi there,
    I have the same issue with my iPhone 4S locked by Verizon. But my OS is 5.0.1, and I have GEVEY which should work with GSM and CDMA. With it I am able to make and receive calls and receive SMS. I can't send messages... And I see NO SERVICE in the upper left corner.
    Also installed FuriousMod, but nothing changed.
    Will appreciate any help. Thanks
