    Ok, let's get some folks to test this and see how well it works. I hope it's not a fake.

    1. Insert original carrier AT&T SIM card
    2. Dial 611 for AT&T customer service hotline and drop the call
    3. Turn on Airplane Mode
    4. Take out AT&T SIM card
    5. Insert T-Mobile SIM card
    6. Make sure WiFi is off ( also tap on ‘Forget this Network" to make sure it doesn't connect automatically later)
    7. Switch off Airplane Mode and iPhone will search for network. This is followed by the Apple splash screen appearing.
    8. Activation Required will be displayed on the screen
    9. EDGE network will activate automatically – notice the ‘E' on the top left corner of the screen
    10. Wait for about 20-30 seconds and turn off the phone
    11. Turn on iPhone and the same Activation Required screen will be displayed
    12. When you see one signal bar, tap on Use Cellular Connection
    13. Eject SIM card
    14. Activation Required screen will be displayed the second time
    15. Insert SIM card
    16. Unlocked!

    When I insert the T-Mobile SIM all I get is the 'Invalid SIM' message, not the 'Activation Required' :/

    I have only one question..

    How do they define "drop the call"? Call 611 and then hang up? Or call 611 then go directly into Airplane mode? "drop the call" is a bit ambiguous..

    I think to drop call all you have to do is press the power button once!

    I can't get this to work, no matter what I try. At one point I had 4 bars of service, the E for Edge but T-Mobile never popped up as the carrier and the phone went right back to the activation screen.

    Maybe I'm doing something wrong but steps 12-16 are not working for me the way it's explained.

    On step 13 when I eject the SIM card I don't get the activation screen again. It just stays at my home screen and of course putting the SIM back in brings up the activation screen again.

    I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong but I can't get it to work. And I honestly can't tell what the guy in the video is doing in the last few steps to see where I'm going wrong.

    Anyone else have luck with this?

    Can't get this to work either. I never get the Activation Required window, just the SIM Failure.

    If anyone has any insight on what I should try please do tell, thanks

    Thanks for this. According to the video on iClarified, the guy made the call, waited until he heard the automated system pick up, then hung up the call (pressed the red End button). If that works, I'll be sure to try it on the 4S I'm getting in in the next week.

    Next time you restore or update it will be gone.

    Does it have to be Tmobile?

    If I can try with a different sim, I have a couple of international ones in my desk I can try out

    Fake

    Jailbreak Matrix confirmed that this is a fake solution. It is only for a few seconds and then it is back to square one
