How to unlock 4S from Sprint?


Hey, I bought an iPhone from someone

iPhone 4S, 16GB that locked to Sprint 12.0
Model: MD378LL
Modem: 2.0.12
5.1.1

I need to do activation (don't have original SIM) and to unlock the iPhone for calls.

what are my options to unlock this iPhone?
it is possible ? (i dont live in US)

Thanks,
Dror.

It's possible with the GEVEY ultra S
Here is the issue:

Baseband update = gevey will not work
In other words one wrong move and you are stuck for good locked.

Also you can never update your firmware

My advice? Sell it and buy one for your carrier or one unlocked

He's saying that if you do any of the following (considered a wrong move in this situation), your phone may forever be locked to Sprint (until you officially call them [there's GV Phone for that] and have it unlocked by them):
1. Restoring your iPhone with official firmware (e.g. iOS 5.1.1), this may update the baseband/modem firmware and thus break unlock support by the gevey SIM
2. Updating your iPhone over the air (an iOS 5+ feature), this again may not only update the baseband, but it may just aswell block compatibility with the Gevey SIM

No, i am more so saying once the next firmware comes out you could never restore again without loosing your unlock from GEVEY ulta S
You will be stuck again

So you either are stuck on your firmware forever or you buy a new phone and sell the current one

Factory unlock is possible for this network.
From like a month but resellers do not put it up cause this unlock is pain in the ass...

For some stupid reason there is a requirement since order going to be put u need to turn ur iphone off completely and never turn it back before unlock is done cause if u do unlock will fail.

I had possibility to do it but i resigned from this carrier to prevent bullshit situations with refunds etc...cause customer turned phone unlock failed and he never admitted it etc...
But if u just go to ur local mobile shop try to ask about it cause i know it is possible.

And factory unlock is the only unlock that allows u to update ur IOS version and modem firmware freely...basically it stays forever soft unlocks are always temporary...

Anyways good luck

i think out solution is R-SIM V (5)


but im afraid of activation, cuz i dont have original sprint sim, only israeli sim-card.

lets hope this will fix :
Put in R-SIM,Show:"Activation Required",Unable to activate.
Solution:

1,Don't put in any simcard to your iphone,Turn off your iphone,Turn on your iphone;
2,Open "Voice memos",Click recording butten,start recording;
3,Press the home button,back home now
4,Put in R-SIM and SimCard and R-SIM Tray to your iPhone
6,If show: "Activation Required",click Status bar "Recording",in to "Voice memos",press the home button,Back home
7,Click Settings>>Phone>>SIM Applications>>Entering the R-SIM program list,Select carrier
8,If this operation is invalid, please repeat this procedure

Interestingly enough, I couldn't manage to unlock a Sprint 4S with an R SIM 5... But I did with a III. A gold one, at that. (Which are supposed to be fake)

Took a lot of trial and error, and 14 minutes, but it was finally done.

I am going to try this site when I buy a new iphone Thursday they claim to do sprint unlocks

OfficialiPhoneUnlock.co.uk - Official iPhone Unlock Prices

Not sure if it's a scam but, it seems legit they have a ton of reviews on their facebook.
