Unlock iPhone 4 on iOS 4.3: $70 Gevey SIM worth it or not?

We have some important news for those of you who are seeking to unlock iOS 4.3 for the iPhone 4 handset. It has been discovered that a SIM card known as the Gevey SIM apparently allows the user to unlock Apple’s latest software, without the need of jailbreaking it first.

The good news about this method, is that it can also unlock the latest baseband, 04.10.01, but the bad news is that there are question marks as to if this method of unlocking is deemed legal or not.

Basically, the Gevey SIM operates by tampering with the iPhone’s activation servers by using the emergency dialer. Another thing that you need to be aware of, is that this thing costs $70 to buy, as reported from Ubergizmo. Also, once you have acheived an unlock on your iPhone 4 using the Gevey SIM, you can’t turn your phone off or you’ll need to repeat the process again – which is obviously frustrating.

Still though, those of you with $70 to spare and who are desperate to unlock your iPhone 4 at any cost, this method may be worthwhile for you. For everyone else who is a bit concerned about this though, it may be worth holding off until the iPhone Dev Team come up with a better solution.

What are your thoughts on this? Are you considering buying the Gevey Sim card for $70 or do you think it is a risky move? We’ll let you know when the thing is out, it’s meant to be hitting retailers and places like Ebay and Amazon soon.
