    This is not an advertisement, as I am not selling these, but I notice a lot of people have been asking how to unlock it (3g with 2.30 baseband). I went out and purchased this off ebay :

    GEVEY 3G PLUS 2 TURBO UNLOCK 2.2.1 FW & 2.30 3G IPHONE


    so for those of you asking how to unlock your 3g, this would be it.
    cheap, easy, and I didn't have to do squat! It even carried over my jailbroken stuff from my 2g phone. (cydia/installer/etc).

    :cool:

    not sure what you mean by tech support...guess you could always email the seller.

    When I popped it in, turned it on, it took 15 seconds or so the first time to recognize it, then it told me it was installed, and then took another 30 seconds to find it and it's worked perfectly...few reboots (after rebooting it comes up instantly, no need to wait).

    I'd be curious if this will work into 3.0.

    Does your phone still sync OK thru iTunes ?


    That has been a common problem with these.

    Maybe unrelated, but has anyone noticed this?
    The site claims to have unlocked the 3.0 beta firmware (4.22.01). Has anybody tried this?
    They easily could be using a factory unlocked iPhone to mimmic the unlock:rolleyes:

    Isn't this basically the same as Turbosim? Hardware unlocks are not the solution usually as one firmware update might mess it up completely and the chip would need to be reflashed.

    I think that's what happened to me: I stupidly got 3.0 on itunes and my previously unlocked phone is now locked and I think my gevey card is messed up. How do I get it reflashed?

    Why bother with 2.2.1 right now, there is 3.0 unlock coming out for free in a few days here.

    Why are you promoting a paying site when unlocking an iPhone is as simple and free as breathing air. Seriously, http://blog.iphone-dev.org it has the latest information on the up comming unlock for the 3G ultrasn0w.
