    hey ,

     

    well my name is juan. i live in guatemala city. so i bought this iphone 4 32gb and idk if it was jailbroken well any ways i had a version of 4.2 and updated it t ios 5. well i have gotten the message that the sim card is not compatible and to please get in contact with a supported carrier. well i this  case i cant get to the main screen it just shows the list of countrys and its a gray screen. well i went on youtube and did that process and it comes to the main screen now when i i close the screen for sleep mode it goes back to the same problem. other than that i cant get my signal and it still says invalid sim. so is there a way i can hack it again or jailbreak it so i can ios 5. before all that problem occured it was working perfectly and it was ok but since i was so dumb and tried updating i got stuck with that problem if ya can please give a step by step activate my phone without recieving that message i would really appreciate it !!!!!!!!god bless

    In your case, I think you have updated a locked phone. On iOS 4.2 with the older baseband, ultrasn0w could be used to unlock the carrier. But if you have directly updated your phone using the stock iOS firmware 5.0, definitely it will be locked. And that's why unable to activate the phone. FYI, there is no unlock for the latest basebands.

    but how do i that becuz first of all i bought the phone from someone that was selling the version before was 4.2 and then went to itunes and it asked me if i wanted to update it to ios 5.0 or ios 5.1 something like that so i went ahead and did it and then erased all my information. after that it left me with a grey screen asking me for your language and country and after i couldnt get to the main menu and it read my sim and said "invalid sim sim not compatible please contact supported carrier""something like that well then went on youtube and showed me how to get to the screen and did it well in this case when i put it to hold or sleep mode or whatever it goes back to the same thing.so my question is how do i put it to the normal screen without going through all that process?????was my upgrade a wrong one or is it that i upgraded it wrong?can i download it back to its normal version and figure out the solution to upgrade later on?its driving me crazy!!!!!!plus another question is does ios 5.0 or ios 5.1 work with gevey turbo sim or only the normal i phone 4 version like 4.2 or 4.3,etc.???????????please help on this one thank u very much!!!!!!!

    Do check out the following article as it helped me...

    First of all, let me understand your story.

     

    You are having an iPhone 4, not iPhone 4S.

    You bought the phone and that time it had iOS 4.2.

    You don't know whether it is a locked phone or unlocked phone right?

     

    First of all you need to know if your iPhone is a locked or unlocked phone. It is because, In locked phones, If you update firmware directly from Itunes, you can't activate the phone. And It will prompt "Invalid Sim" or a similar message.

     

    The grey screen that you are talking about is, the welcome/setup screen of iOS 5 or later. It will ask you to complete a couple of fields and once done it, the phone tries to activate. However, as I told you before, If your phone is a locked phone, the process will be failed saying "Invalid Sim" or "Unsupported Carrier"

     

    Another thing I would like to highlight is, As you were saying you have updated directly from itunes, your phone's baseband will be updated to the latest. And unfortunately THERE IS NO UNLOCK FOR THE LATEST BASEBANDS.

     

    Also, If you don't have cydia SHSH blobs, or TinyUmbrella backups of SHSH blobs, you can't go back to iOS 4.xx. And also, there is no way that you can downgrade your baseband.

     

    If your phone is a locked phone, simply there is NO HOPE you can call on your phone. Ofcourse, once you jailbreak your device using snowbreeze, it can hacktivate it. So you can access to your Home Screen and use all the features except the call/sms features. You can call on your phone only if a hacker could crack the latest baseband. As far as I know, at the moment no hacker is working on it.

     

    If your Phone is factory unlock phone, I can blame to iOS 5 as Michael Reid highlighted.,

    okay. yes your correct. well the yes the phone was locked to its carrier and i updated it when it was locked. i took the phone to a guy yesterday and somehow he was actually able to get it back to its normal screen(thank God)well he advised me that the phone is not gna be able to be used because i guess the GEVEY TURBO SIM does not support the new version IOS 5.0.1 and advised me that i have to wait for at least two months for the company to release a new Version of GEVEY TURBO SIM to support the IOS 5 is that true?so in this case u said that i have download ultrasnow or the program can i do that since my phone is not working. What happens is that here in Guatemala City we have three companies for phone services which is TIGO,CLARO,MOVISTAR well apparently when i got the phone i was using it with the TURBO SIM with the Microchip (MOVISTAR) then yesterday i put a microchip of (TIGO) "WITHOUT" the GEVEY SIM and realized that that was its original carrier. well no just that i found that the phone was stolen and blocked my sim from using the phone is there anyway i can flash the phone so it can get my movistar sim again like it use to like with ultrasnow or no?????????????or do i gotta wait until the new GEVEY SIM comes out

    Sorry Juan. New Gevey Sim which supports to iOS 5 is releasing by the end of december or the begining of the next year. I am not sure though.

     

    If I were you, I wouldn't buy a locked phone. The procedure is difficult and risky.

     

    Anyway, enjoy the ipod features till a new gevey sim or an ultrasn0w unlock comes out

  • juanortiz Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    alrite thank you. but are you sure it would be able to spport baseband 4.11.08 ?did you ever here about the "miracle sim by Vold" i mean is that true?well anyways your also saying the ULTRASNOW & SNOWBREEZE doesnt have a progam to unlock 4.11.08 ?well I seened that on youtube you can downgrade the IOS 5 (BASEBAND 4.11.08) to (BASEBAND4.10.01)and somehow SUPPOSABLY that when you downgrade it 4.10.01 that  the (GEVEY SIM) would be able to support that base band. O yea another thing is it possible to change IMEI for iphone 4???please let me know i appreciate it and if i get any new updates which ima be working on this week i will let you know GOD BLESS!!!!!!!!!

  • purmus Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I am using an Iphone4 with update 9A405 and so is my girlfriend. I have the same 'no service' problem on both phones and restoring does not go to 9A406. Is there a fix for this problem on the Iphone4?

  • codeslayer Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Sorry Juan you can't change the IMEI number of your phone. The other thing is I have no idea about the miracle sim. Also, I don't think you can downgrade your baseband if you have updated to the latest. But you can downgrade your firmware without baseband.

     

    Sorry for the late reply.
