112 is an emergency number in which dialing it in other countries could be illegal. Being said that, some iPhone users may have second thought of using it as an alternative baseband unlocking solution to a more popular and widely used software-based Ultrasn0w.
Anticipating such concern, the SIM Interposer maker Gevey, has released a new Gevey Ultra SIM which can unlock iPhone 4 without dialing 112. The Gevey Ultra SIM has a more streamlined process of unlocking basebands 1.59.00, 2.10.04, 3.10.01, and 4.10.01 on iOS firmware including iOS 4.0, 4.1, 4.2.1, 4.3, 4.3.1, 4.3.2, 4.3.3, and even iOS 5.0. For Gevey Ultra SIM to work, users need to jailbreak the iPhone 4 and install the FuriousMod package from cydia.furiousmod.com repository.
