I checked that link, and they don't offer it on the iPhone 4. The iPhone 2 and 3/3G are rather easy to do yourself; I wouldn't encourage anyone to pay for it unless they had gobs of money. But then they could just buy a new unlocked iPhone4 straight from Apple.

Has anyone managed to do this successfully yet? I have an iPhone4 from SoftBank (Japan), version 4.3.5 on baseband 4.10.01. I've already jailbroken it but need the carrier unlock - am thinking of ordering the GEVEY Ultra from applenberry, as they ship internationally.

I'm unsure if Gevey still works, but it is your only hope; ultrasn0w (the s/w unlock) doesn't work for that Baseband/iOS.

"The supported basebands for the iPhone 3G and 3GS are 04.26.08, 05.11.07, 05.12.01, 05.13.04, and 06.15.00. The baseband supported for the iPhone4 is 01.59.00."

Thanks, zzm. Got my hands on a Gevey Ultra and tried it last night. Apparently they now have this "automatic" process whereby dialing 112 is unnecessary. It's supported up to iOS 4.3.3. The "manual" process supports up to iOS 4.3.5, although some users online reported success with iOS5 on older basebands.

Anyway, I was able to unlock my phone (iOS 4.3.5 / Baseband 4.10.01) after some trial and error. You have to enable data roaming to get the 3G icon and add in the VPN / username / password for your SG carrier to get full data usage.

The only thing to be careful of, is that you have to always reboot your phone tethered, as redsn0w doesn't have an untethered jailbreak for my configuration at the moment.

Do you have any link to information on the VPN username and password for your Singapore data carrier? Might be useful for any future searches that end up in this thread.

It seems like there are different versions when you search online, but I'm using the following combination for SingTel.
VPN: e-ideas
username: 65ideas
password: 65ideas

There's a website which lists the info for StarHub / M1:

Oh, but I should qualify something... so far I can only get SMS and data to work. I have lost MMS and FaceTime functionality, and am working on it. Will report back if I figure out how to get around it.

Still no FaceTime, but MMS is working again. Set your Cellular Data Network to the following:

Cellular Data
APN: e-ideas
Username: 65ideas
Password: 65ideas

MMS
APN: e-ideas
Username: 65ideas
Password: 65ideas
MMSC: http://mms.singtel.com:10021/mmsc
MMS Proxy: 165.21.42.84:8080
MMS Max Message Size: 207200

Hope that helps.
