We are all aware that there is no unlock for the basebands 4.10.01, 2.10.04 and 3.10.01. But, I have seen a few sites popping up with their unlock softwares for $30 that claim to unlock all the basebands which include 4.10.01, 2.10.04 and 3.10.01. This raised a question in my mind, “Is this for real?” If it is I can unlock my iPhone 4 with 4.10.01 baseband.
On further investigation I found out these websites are fake and you need to stay away from them. Don’t throw your $30 for some rubbish. The basebands 4.10.01, 2.10.04 and 3.10.01 are unlockable only with Gevey SIMs and not any other software. You may come across softwares like Fastra1n and Fastsn0w that claim to unlock and jailbreak any iOS version and basebands but they are fake! Softwares like Ultrasn0w are not capable of unlocking the following basebands.
Can I count upon you and consider these websites as fake?
Yes! If you want to find out whether these softwares are legitimate then go to Scambook.com and search for the software. You’ll be astounded! Here are some of the reviews by users for Theunlockiphone4.com (now it is being redirected to iphoneunlocking.com)
There are other similar sites that you should aware of. They include: unlock-the-iphone.com and fastunlockiphone.com.
When I visited unlock-the-iphone.com, I tried using the live chat box to chat with customer care which I thought was real. It was hilarious! It turned out to be a bot sending some random messages!
Fastunlockiphone.com uses ultrasn0w and redsn0w. The only difference is the UI is different. If you try to unlock those basebands that are not supported by Unltrasn0w then a box will popup saying, “Current Modem Firmware Version Not Supported”. But, the developers are smart! You also get a message stating that iOS 4.3.5 will be unlocked soon! Did you come across any other websites like these? Feel free to mention in the comments, so that others don’t fall prey to such scams!
