Users are bombared with Unlocking solutions for the iPhones.

We already have the Factory Unlock option to fully unlock the iPhone’s.  Also you can use Rebel Micro unlock sim overlay cards  and then  for Jail broken users SAM. But the story does not end their.

The rebelsimcard team have found another method that can be used even on the latest iOs 5.1 and best of all Does not rely on having to first Jailbreak the iPhone’s and is much easier than the SAM Software Solution and does not require Rebel micro turbo unlock Overlay sim.

Whenever you use a Rebel Micro Unlock sim for iPhone 4 or 4S  you are free to choose any network sim your want without jailbreak SIM Overlays like the Rebel Micro Unlock simcards work in a different way than the  method described here for the very first time in the WORLD in DETAIL but works in a similar way to SAM software does for jailbroken iPhones’s.

Step 1

Restore the iPhones so you see the Activation Required Message. or  if already activated then proceed to the next step

 

Step 2

Order a Rebel Micro Activation Simcard from this Link. Note a Programmer is Also Required  and you can deals with programmers also.

CODE: RSC-Rebel-Activation-Card

or

Rebel Micro SimCard

Rebel Micro SimCard iphone unlock without cables or software's

 

 

 

 

Step 3

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Program the Rebel Activation Card .

To do this download Cardinal or some other program that can read the IMSI & ICCID of a network simcard you wish to use after unlocking which in this case is an 02 simcard as in the Picture with Cardinal software.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once you read the info  write the data to to the Rebel activation Card and edit only the MCC MNC of the IMSI you copied earlier so the MCC MNC matches the iphones original network.

So all Data should be same as the 02 sim   other than the first 5 or 6 digits of the if the IMSI get edited

So if like in this example the iphone 4s is locked on orange and the code is 234 33. replace the first 5 digits of the IMSI you copied of the 02 sim earlier

Step 4

Insert your CORRECTLY programmed Rebel Activation sim in to the locked iphone and Activate your iPhone using WIFI or Itunes.

Once Activation is completed you can now take out the Rebel Activation sim and Insert the Network simcard whose ICCID you used and this network simcard can be from any network provider. You can use that network simcard now in the iPhones and you never jailbroke your phone.

Congratulations You have Unlocked your iPhone without JAILBREAKS inc Latest iPhone 4S model on iOS 5.1.

 

FAQ

Whats the disadvantage of using Rebel Activation Cards over using the Rebel Micro Unlock simcards for iPhones unlocking. ?

Rebel Micro Unlock simcards also known as SimOverlay ProxySim Turbo simcards allows some extra features over the Rebel Activation Card.

  • Users to be able to use any network simcard and be FREE to SWAP network simcards around without the need to redo ICCID IMSI programming using usb programmers for the iPhone 4S
  • Using Rebel Sim Overlay Turbo Unlock Simcards users  dont need to know your ICCID of the network simcard you wish to use.
  • Using Rebel Sim Overlay Turbo Unlock Simcards dont need worry about activating your iphone again when swapping your network simcard to another one with the iPhone 4S
  • Using the Rebel Activation Card  method one bonus point is APN settings are pre populated and you dont need to configure them for many networks as the APN settings get auto loaded from iOs firmware for both iphone 4 and 4S. Note for 4S for the AUTO APN we need to take out the Rebel Micro unlock card and insert only the network simcard once you have activated once with that network sim you wish to use with a Correctly Configured Rebel Micro Unlock simcard with the network code of the locked iphone 4 or 4S’s orignal network.
Simplified Unlock Solution for all iphone 4 & 4S using Rebel micro Unlock Simcards that require no programming to unlock without Jailbreak when order a pre configured Rebel Card for 4 & 4S.

Should you wish to use easy simpler method to do the same thing you can use the Rebel iPhone 4 & 4S Rebel Micro unlock simcards. The benefit is that you dont need a programmer or rebel smartcard/activation simcard and dont need to find your ICCID. They are a much simpler solution for unlocking and are required for one time use only for activation with you favourite sim.  After Activation simply take out the Rebel Micro sim and you can insert your network only and be able to still use your iphone 4 and 4S.

As you know the Rebel simcard Team are always working very hard to make the impossible possible. After Many long sleepless nights and over 200 man hours of Development and testing has gone in to this new firmware for the v1.2 Rebel sim II.

This new firmware V1.2 for Rebel Sim II is created for phones that have the following OS systems.

Windows Mobile Android  Web OS

As you know the number of smart phones that appear in the marketplace with these OS’s is growing every day.

Most of the Smart phones cannot be unlocked by normal cable/software based methods. A hand full can be unlocked by purchasing unlock codes or credits to server based unlock solutions but often costing in the region of £25 per phone.

Normally all phones sold by network operators are locked on to the one network the phone is sold on to.
In the UK Dell streak is sold only by O2
In the USA Dell Streak is sold only by AT&T

Dell Has signed Exclusivity deals with the operators for the countries it supplies in.

The Current scenario is like this

You can buy a dell streak direct fro USA an it will still come locked on to AT&T

You can buy a dell streak direct fro UK an it will still come locked on to 02.

So you can say their is No Sim Free Version of the Dell Streak Available and not even direct from Dell as they are bound by contracts they have made for exclusivity.

As Far as being able to obtain a unlock code to enter in the phone to unlock will be a near impossibility as the phones codes are held by the network operators who locked then.

Not Even Dell can supply a unlock code for the locked phones as they would themselves need to contact the network operator who locked the phone in the first place eg AT&T in USA or O2 in the UK.

However all is not Lost and their is only one company in the World who can provide a Stable Solution to allow use of restricted network simcard on the Dell Streak. Solutions Point Limited based in the UK creates a Product Called the Rebel simcard II is the only unlock solution for the Dell Streak for Now.

Its a small chip on a wafer thin pcb that sits under your network card in your phone and does the Magic and allows use any other network simcard and best of all without the use of cables or software or codes and all this without loss of warranty.

What’s the difference between a SIM and a micro-SIM?

Like a regular SIM, the micro-SIM holds your subscriber information for the carrier and is great for storing
iphone 4gphone book contacts and other personal information. Micro-SIMs are user-replaceable and slide into a little slot in your device just like regular SIMs.

The micro-SIM is a smaller version of a SIM card found in your mobile phone, but holds exactly the same functions and micro-applications. The size of the micro-SIM is about a half of a regular SIM card (12×15 mm instead of 15x25mm). Though it contains the same information, it is not physically compatible with regular SIM cards found in your mobile phone.

A micro-SIM is basically smaller than a normal SIM card like you have and will only work in an iPad or iphone 4 and a watch phone by Lok8u,.

You can see from the images below and see the sim is much smaller than normal but the inner workings of the sim chip are the same with only small modifications that will be further explained down below in the article.

Should i use Scissors or a Knife or Blade to Cut my Sim to Micro Sim Format to use in ipad or Apple 4 ?

Not so Fast as thier was some news in today from Apple that might put a damper on your plans to save yourself a Wad of Notes. It would be reckless to consider taking a pair of scissors to cut the plastic of a regular SIM cards to make a micro-SIM. Anyone who would attempt to do so would risk damaging both their SIM and also the SIM slot of the device but its possible with some Skill.

A better option would be to contact your carrier to get a micro-SIM card or if you do want to convert a normal sim to a micro sim use the Micro sim Cutter Option and if you need to convert your micro sim back to normal you can also use micro sim adapters..

Why Apple Moved to the New Micro Sim Format.

Apple have learnt from previous sim unlock hacks via Sim Overlay Technology from the likes of Rebel Simcard for unlocking, Call  Control Least Cost routing and the use of Double Sim Adapters and have gone to micro Sim format to do their best to block out the possibility of future hacks. Changing down to the micro format so that they can make it much harder to fit Gadgets inside the iphone 4 or ipad sim gates.

ipad-sim-gate-micro-sim-small

ipad-sim-gate-micro-sim

ipad-sim-gate-micro-sim-pic

Another reason Apple moved to the new format was a smart marketing technique. Their is nothing new about the micro sim other than the change of size and apple know this would be good talking point for others to create more talk and publicity around their products and people will percieve also the micro sim is special for apple products or even made by them.

The micro sim was first used by Lok8u, they were the first to ship a micro-SIM product in the United States — a watch that relays the location of children from their wrists to their parents’ cellphones.Jobs Got in Second on the Act here but will claim the Glory and portray this as Apples invention too.

Today’s News Puts a Damper on the Hopes of People wanting to use their existing network Simcard on the Apple Ipad

Apple has added a section to its iPhone FAQ confirming that you won’t be able to use one Micros SIM in both the smartphone and the Apple iPad.

Thousands off people who don’t want to Sign up to New 2 Year  Contracts from Carriers planned to buy an Ipad  Sim Free and use their Existing Simcards which have free or cheap internet packages by converting then by cutting them self or through the of micro sim cuttings tools have had their Plans blown out of the window for Now with the new announcement.

The official line on this from UK O2 is “The micro-SIMs for the iPhone are set up to allow voice calls, SMS messages and data functionality, whereas the iPad micro-SIM is provisioned to allow pay-as-you-go data transfer only.”

“The two devices are designed to give a different experience. The iPhone 4 is for regular use, whereas with the iPad we offer moreflexibility over data use.”

Makes perfect business sense from Apple’s point of view, but seems a riff off as the Device is Purchased Sim Free and such Restrictions should not be placed. This means we need to have two monthly data plans if we want 3G mobile browsing.

The two types of Micro Sim card for Apple ipad & Iphone 4 Explained and Can you use if you convert you existing sims to micro sim format.

Most networks around the world sell 2 types of network simcard.

  1. Voice & Data Enabled Simcard where you can Make Calls and also Use to Surf the Net. This is the most common type of simcard around the world and is same as what we find in mobile phones and phones like Iphone 3G 3G 3GS.
  2. Data Only Simcard Where you cant make Calls but Can use to surf the Net Only. This type of network simcard is quite new and only few years old & can only be used in devices who primary function is to supply Data only Services and you will already find these kinds of simcards in devices like data dongle & Mifi Devices and often are bundled in to deals with Laptops that are sold with internal wireless GPRS EDGE 3G Modems.

If you already have a Good mobile contract Deal with Free Data allowance this Leaves you with the Following options if you convert you network sim to micro format and buy a Sim Free iphone 4 or Ipad 3G.

Can i use my Normal Voice & Data enabled Sim ?

Sim Free iphone 4              Sim Free ipad

YES                                                 No

Can i use my Data only Sim from my existing data dongle or Mifi with Sim Free Ipad & Iphone 4G ?

Sim Free iphone 4              Sim Free ipad

Yes *                                                    Yes

*To be confirmed by our guess is Yes but for Data Only and not voice


UK Mobile Networks and thier offerings for Micro Sims

Rival networks OrangeVodafone and 3 are all offering customers the chance to pre-order the Micro SIMs needed to use the iPad’s 3G capabilities

The UK O2 network is offering its daily tariff (£2 per day for 500MB) but users need to wait for Friday before they can order their SIM.
