    I have the phone (4s) jailbroken. When I put in the gevey ultra sim with my activated TM micro sim, it wants to activate and goes to "sim not valid". Is this a fake gevey or am I missing a step. I did this with my daughters phone and got hers unlocked ok using a gevey. If I use her gevey with my sim, will her gevey need to be reset? Or can I swap the geveys with no worry? Don't want to run the risk of messing up the gevey in her phone. Thanks.

    It might be a knock off.
    Where did you buy it ?
    eBay has a lot of knock offs being passed as Gevey.

    It was ebay. So can I stop pulling my hair out and just get another one? I assume this gevey is bad.
    What about using the other known working gevey? Do I stand a chance of something happening to that one?

    If you had bought from the Gevey website (a genuine Gevey product) they would just replace it for you.

    I'm sure you got a knock off and most of those are just junk.

    do yourself a favor and order it from a official distributor. here is a very well known one if you save a couple bucks and it doesn't work you didn't save $$$.

    Do I run any kind of risk using the gevey from another phone to verify? Will I be able to swap the gevey back to the other phone without risk of something happening to other gevey?

    I understand that the gevey I'm using is more than likely fake and have to get another one, thanks.

    You can use the Gevey in any 4S with no risk to harming the phone.
