    I haven't jailbroken for years so I don't know the situation well.

    I basically want to unlock my iPhone 4 locked to T-Mobile UK, without paying them the £15.32 unlocking fee. Is there currently a jailbreak/other working method of unlocking it?

    Don't know if this helps, but Modem Firmware is 04.11.08

    Thanks!

    In terms of iPhone 4 baseband, the only "conventional" jailbreak unlock, ultrasn0w, only unlocks version 01.59.00. So 04.11.08 doesn't cut it.

    Gevey unlocks only work with 04.10.01 as far as I know, so upgrading to iOS5 may had doomed you for now.

    I'd suggest just paying the fee. :D

    Many of us would kill to be able to get an official unlock for that price. Trust me, the convenience is well worth it (and a Gevey SIM would cost you more anyway)

    Well said. Pay it.
    It's well worth it.
    And no there's no way to unlock an i4 on official 5.0

    Meh, guess I should pay it for convenience sake, but actually gevey sims are only about £4 on eBay. Cam't be bothered with the fuss of them though.

    Gevey doesn't work on 5.0 and higher. It's patched by Apple.
