    UPDATE

    It works very well, you don't need to repeat the steps if you loose signal.
    It unlocks up to 4.3 on the latest baseband.
    For those concerned dialing 112, the call it self doesn't have to connect, you just hang up 1-2 seconds after you pressed "call"
    The SIMs from www.sunsky-online.com has been confirmed working in this thread. They are cheaper so go check that out.

    ...may be macrumors doesn't want us to be able to unlock the phone and keep hanging here to increase their traffic.

    Aaa and Macrumors are paying the dev-team, not Apple, to give us hope for the unlock when they don't have nothing. It all makes sense now...

    Interesting write-up http://is.gd/HwzKq9 but I guess this is not for everyone "An overpriced (US$50), unreliable and legally questionable mod; works for some but your mileage may vary; get it if you are desperate or wait for the 40-bit NCK hack by dev team"

    MacRumors is known for taking down extremely relevant threads that conflict with its lack of interesting news feed.

    it's been several months for some people waiting, so the price might be right for them. also, someone could buy this and try it so if it works they could just let someone else borrow it as well and split costs if they wanted to.

    Some more details about this Turbo-Sim unlock.
    Taken by iClarified:

    Gevey has released a SIM Interposer which can unlock the iPhone up to iOS 4.3 by force activating the baseband using the emergency dialer.

    A blog post by Laforet explains that the SIM Interposer works by adding a EEPROM chip to your SIM card just like a TurboSIM. You then call 112, a number that can be called from any GSM phone, free of charge, with or without a SIM card on any compliant network. Once the call connects you hang up then toggle Airport mode on and off. When the network connection resumes you will be unlocked.

    What does it mean to unlockers?
    1. It works if A.your network handles 112 calls properly according to the GSM standard; B.they are tolerant to TSMI spoofing and does not actively validate your SIM again for incoming calls.

    2. Unlike its ancestors, the i4 SIM interposer is not a drop-in-and-forget device. The exact precedure must be performed should the device restart, lose reception for an extended period of time or move to another PLMN. In all these situations the TMSI expires and has to be obtained again. Theoretically it is possible for a daemon to automate the process similar to ZeroG, but that only makes thing more convoluted.

    3. It is, without question, unethical or downright illegal to use the technique anywhere 112 is a legitmate emergency number. Not a huge issue in China where the number is only used for informative purposes and the networks cannot be bothered to fix the issue.

    4. All firmware/baseband combinations for the i4 up to iOS4.3 are vulnerable, however the exploit may be patched in any future software updates or via the carrier. If apple can influence providers to block Cydia it is not impossible for them to press them to fix the exploit. The only way to permanently unlock your baseband is NCK.

    5. SIM interposer should not harm your phone hardware, however your network could request IMEI and identify your device during the emergency call. Your identity cannot be faked and it is possible that they will ban your account. There is a reason why SIM cards remain legally the property of the service provider: you are not supposed to tamper with them without breaching contract.

    6. Notwithstanding all the problems, SIM interposer does not cause any battery drain since it is only active transiently, nor would it cause signal loss because it does not change cellular transmission other than the initial validation step.

    Laforet concludes by saying that the $50 mod can be unreliable and is legally questionable. If you are desperate for an unlock it may be worth a try. Otherwise Laforet suggests you wait for the 40-bit NCK hack by the iPhone Dev-Team.
