CDMA 4S Unlocking for the likes of Sprint Verizon C Spire its a bit more complicated as these phones dont have network simcards and dont come with network simcard but if you have a CDMA 4S with 5.1.1 and its not activated we will be showing how to by pass the activation & be able to Unlock CDMA 5.1.1 4S’s.

iPhone 4S Rebel Pro Micro sim  can work on the Latest iOS 5.1.1 & Baseband 2.0.12 for BOTH the CDMA & GSM Flavours of the 4S.

The GSM iPhone 4S does not require Jail breaking but the CDMA iPhone 4S requires a Jailbreak to Fully work as a GSM 4S.

Before you can unlock the iPhone 4S using Turbo/Proxy simcards like Rebel 4S Micro simcard its required to Pre configure the card correct network code also know as IMSI  MCC+MCCN and some times the ICCID of the network simcard also required pre programming in to the Rebel 4S Micro sim.

The way to program the Rebel Pro 4S Micro simcard is to use the STK Rebel Menu which can be found under the Settings – Phone – Sim Application options in the iOS user interface.

The Rebel Pro 4S Micro sim STK  offers an array of options.

  1. The first Being able to set the Carrier Manually  from the Pre populated Network List that has the worlds major networks pre populated for you so you only have to press couple of buttons to complete Configuration. In the Examples we will be selecting the Verizon for the CDMA 4S Models to unlock.
  2. This the most  easiest way to configure the 4S card. For GSM 4S You only need a network simcard or the Rebel activation that comes pre programmed with your package.
  3. You also manually enter the IMSI & ICCID and these are advanced features and not required until Apple Activation servers allow the SAM technique to be used again based on the ICCID without jailbreak which we showed how to do with  the rebel activation card here few weeks back.
