    I am studying in England for the year and would like to use my Iphone 4 while I am here. I am wondering if anyone has a link to a site that provides detailed instructions on how to jailbreak then unlock my Iphone so I can use it with the O2 network out here. I have found a ton of different websites all saying different things, so I am not sure which method is the "best". So if someone who has done this successfully before could help me out that would be great! Firmware= 4.10.01 Version= 4.3.3

    There is no solfware unlock for your phone with baseband 04.10. The only way to unlock it for now is with Gevey sim.

    Could you explain what the Gevey sim is? Have you tried it?

    Gevey sim is very well known. Just do a search here or google on YouTube there are video's. It's your only option. Fairly cheap around $20 bucks. Just be careful about updating your baseband if you plan to use 5.0

    Where did you buy the Gevey sim? I am seeing a ton of different websites advertising many different prices and don't know which is actually legit and which is a huge scam..

    I bought them from Ebay, make sure you look at the feedback of that particular seller to see buyers's comment about the item they bought. The one with 4.1, 02.10 has been using Gevey since March 2011 without any problem. The 4.3.5, 04.10 has been using Gevey sim about 3 weeks without any problem.

    They used to cost $20/pc, but now the price is dropping and you can get one for under $7 including shipping and they are better than the one I bought back in March. You only need set it up once.
