MuscleNerd – The “Unlock iPhone 4S without jailbreak” method does not work


The recent method of Unlocking iPhone 4S without Jailbreak doesn’t work as confirmed by MuscleNerd of Dev Team. The recent hack requires you to do a series of steps which are listed below:

  1. Insert original carrier AT&T SIM card
  2. Dial 611 for AT&T customer service hotline and drop the call
  3. Turn on Airplane Mode
  4. Take out AT&T SIM card
  5. Insert T-Mobile SIM card
  6. Make sure WiFi is off ( also tap on ‘Forget this Network” to make sure it doesn’t connect automatically later)
  7. Switch off Airplane Mode and iPhone will search for network. This is followed by the Apple splash screen appearing.
  8. Activation Required will be displayed on the screen
  9. EDGE network will activate automatically – notice the ‘E’ on the top left corner of the screen
  10. Wait for about 20-30 seconds and turn off the phone
  11. Turn on iPhone and the same Activation Required screen will be displayed
  12. When you see one signal bar, tap on Use Cellular Connection
  13. Eject SIM card
  14. Activation Required screen will be displayed the second time
  15. Insert SIM card
  16. Unlocked!

The above method will only unlock your iPhone for few seconds, few minutes or maybe till the next restart..but thats it. There is no point trying the above trick. Wait for a more permanent method by the devs.

    T-mobile is a piece of crap anyway

  3. I tried all sorts of methods for unlocking my iPhone and actually all of them couldn’t worked. The only thing that worked was a small application I downloaded and run on my notebook, connected my iPhone and it unlocked it in just a few minutes.
