Latest rumour is that it will be available shortly after the 4.3.1 jailbreak is released. No unlock had been confirmed by the devs. All just rumour and speculation at the moment...

Saw this update today on many websites and blogs. Not sure whether its scam or genuine. But they claim to unlock 4.2.1 with baseband 2.10.4 and 3.10.1 by using Turbo gevey SIM. If you open the URL even they are showing a youtube video how to unlock with gevey SIM:

httpdot//techgoggles.in/index.php/video-unlock-2-10-04-3-10-01-iphone-4-on-ios-4-1-4-2-1-with-gevey-sim/

Can someone confirm that its not a scam? I hope its not!!

EDIT: please replace dot with real dot since the forum was not allowing me to post URL

I wouldn't use it...

According to unofficial review of Gevey Turbo SIM in laforeta blog:

What does it mean to unlockers?

1. It works if A.your network handles 112 calls properly according to the GSM standard; B.they are tolerant to TSMI spoofing and does not actively validate your SIM again for incoming calls.
2. Unlike its ancestors, the i4 SIM interposer is not a drop-in-and-forget device. The exact precedure must be performed should the device restart, lose reception for an extended period of time or move to another PLMN. In all these situations the TMSI expires and has to be obtained again. Theoretically it is possible for a daemon to automate the process similar to ZeroG, but that only makes thing more convoluted.
3. It is, without question, unethical or downright illegal to use the technique anywhere 112 is a legitmate emergency number. Not a huge issue in China where the number is only used for informative purposes and the networks cannot be bothered to fix the issue.
4. All firmware/baseband combinations for the i4 up to iOS4.3 are vulnerable, however the exploit may be patched in any future software updates or via the carrier. If apple can influence providers to block Cydia it is not impossible for them to press them to fix the exploit. The only way to permanently unlock your baseband is NCK.
5. SIM interposer should not harm your phone hardware, however your network could request IMEI and identify your device during the emergency call. Your identity cannot be faked and it is possible that they will ban your account. There is a reason why SIM cards remain legally the property of the service provider: you are not supposed to tamper with them without breaching contract.
6. Notwithstanding all the problems, SIM interposer does not cause any battery drain since it is only active transiently, nor would it cause signal loss because it does not change cellular transmission other than the initial validation step.

The price of GEVEY Turbo SIM has not been declared but will be around $40 whereas Ultrasn0w unlock is free.It is better to wait till iPhone dev team comes up with any unlock news
