    Hi,

    I'm in Canada and I recently bought an iphone 4s from Bell mobility. I'm moving to asia (Singapore) for 6 months in january and I would like to find a way to use my iphone down there.

    Is there any jailbreak/unlock available or coming before January that would allow me to do so?

    Is there any chance that Bell or Apple would accept to unlock my phone for a certain fee ?

    I've heard about some "rebel sim card" on some blogs, would it work for me and is it reliable ?

    Thank you for your answers !

    No.

    Your thinking of Gevey Sim. But you still need a jailbreak to use it.

    Sorry, your out of luck right now.

    Gevey doesn't require jb. I wish people would stop spreading misinformation. :rolleyes:
    If you're within the return period, return and get a factory unlocked phone from Apple. There is no hacked unlock for the 4S.

    You would need to ask Bell if they unlock their iphones.
    No unlock option at the moment for the 4S but down the road we might see something.

    Thank you guys !

    I'll stay posted... hopefully a 4s unlock or an updated Gevey sim card is on his way.

    Have you tried to contact your carrier? Also you might ask them about bill wise for the next 6 months. If you are in contract you will be expected to pay both Canada and. While in Asia.
