    Is it officially unlocked by the carrier or is it using a Gevey sim adapter to unlock it?

    You don't need a Gevey SIM to unlock an iPhone 4 that's jailbroken.

    That is false.
    Jailbreaking and unlocking are 2 different things.
    And that baseband version you listed above cannot be unlocked with ultrasnow.
    So if the phone is unlocked now and you're not using a gevey then its officially unlocked.

    Juice is correct!

    You want to keep the jailbreak as well or just want a stock phone?

    No it's not. I know jailbreaking and unlocking are two different things which is why I dictated which was which.

    This is only true for the original 1.59.xx baseband

    This unlock method hasn't worked since April 2012.
    There is no other way to currently unlock that baseband version besides gevey or official unlock period.
    I see you're pretty up to date and knowledgable about jb and unlocks:D
    Teach us all here please.

    Teach you or tell you? Major differences, but since becoming someone who sells factory unlocks I have been out of the loop, truthfully.

    being out of the loop is pretty clear, be careful what you advise people, they might end up with something they don't want, need and can't get rid of.
