This guide will help you unock your iPhone using ultrasn0w 1.3 to let you use sim cards from other carriers worldwide.
This is ONLY FOR JAILBROKEN iPhones. If yours is not yet jailbroken, CLICK HERE for guide on how to jailbreak.Ultrasn0w 1.3 unlocks the following basebands for all iPhones:

  • 01.59.00 - iPhone 4, iOS 4.0, 4.0.1 & 4.0.2
  • 05.13.04 - iPhone 3G & 3GS, iOS 4.0, 4.0.1 & 4.0.2

  • 06.15.00 - iPad baseband, iOS 3.2.2 (for patching iPhone 3G & 3GS BBs past iOS 4.0.2) (?)
  • and all older versions
NOTE: 05.14.02 / 02.10.04 baseband from iOS 4.1 and all newer versions, do not have any unlocking tool yet. You can follow me on twitter (kid_ant) or subscribe to my YouTube channel (kidantvideos) for updates.Make sure you are connected to a WiFi signal then follow these steps:
  1. Open Cydia
  2. Go to Manage and tap on Sources, at the middle of the page
  3. Tap repo666.ultrasn0w.com (If the repo is not in your Sources read below)
  4. Tap ultrasn0w
  5. Tap Install, then tap Confirm
  6. Wait until the installation finishes
  7. Tap Reboot Device
After the reboot, you should get a signal for your sim carrier, wherever you are in the world. That means your iPhone is now unlocked.

If repo666.ultrasn0w.com is not in your Sources, do this first:
  • While in Cydia's Sources page, tap Edit (top-right corner)
  • Tap Add (top-left corner)
  • Type this on the text box: http://repo666.ultrasn0w.com (with the number zero NOT the letter "O" in ultrasn0w)
  • Tap Add Source
  • Tap Done (top-right corner)
Proceed to number 3 on the first part of this guide.

iphone won't recognize sim

Your phone must be jail broken and unlocked to use non AT&T sim card. Be sure you have correctly installed redsn0w and ultrasn0w unlocker. If you have recently updated your phone that will undo your jailbreak and unlock. You will need to reapply them for the version of your iPhone OS if they are available.

error msg on iphonethe sim card inserted in this phone does not appear to be supported

You are holding a locked handset. Find out from where you got it who it is locked to and get a hold of the unlock code from them normally around $50 from the Telco who locked it.
