This guide will show you how to unlock your iPhone 4S without jailbreaking it by exploiting Apple’s Activation procedure bug. Enjoy!

Step 1: Insert your carriers original SIM Card (Note: At this point only the AT&T Method is confirmed working)

Step 2: Dial 611 (Customer service hotline) then drop the call after a few seconds.

Step 3: Turn on airplane mode. While airplane mode is on, take out your SIM Card.

Step 4: Insert your T-mobile SIM card and make sure that you are still in airplane mode.

Step 5: Once your T-mobile SIM card is in, turn off airplane mode. The apple logo will then appear on your phone.

Step 6: The edge network will automatically turn on. Once you see the E in the top corner, wait about 30 seconds and turn your phone off.

Step 7: Turn your iPhone back on. You will see the activation screen. Once you see your cellular data bar appear in the top corner, select “Use cellular connection”

Step 8: Eject your SIM card. You should see the activation screen again. Once you do, pop your SIM back in and you should be unlocked!
