Sorry, rush of blood to the head. Let's apply rational methods over the next several days first.
Check my reply. Try another sim. Using O2UK sims even with a proxy sim on a O2UK phone - simply does not test the lock as after the IMSI requests have been faked, it goes back to the legit IMSI codes form the real sim.
I am trying Lebera (Vodafone UK MVNO) and that works perfect. In/out everything and data. Lets see if the networks are blocking things. Im going to leave this on and not touch it at all. This post will time it.
I can confirm the YesSIM did work with the Lebera card but not my other VF cards (I have 4, 3 contract 1 PAYG). Was only able to get 2G mode working however. Trying 3G kills network, it waits abit and then reverts back to 2G. Even selecting 3G Voda directly results in it still forcing/failing back to 2G.
Yes, I think 3G is certainly challenging, but if we can establish any kind of consistency with 2G alone, that may be useful.
RebelSim: Official video says 3G must be turned "off". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lNG3CUM8yNM
Looks like some intense marketing bandwagon action with claiming "iPhone 3G unlock" when clearly they have not figured out 3G unlock part of it.
Nonetheless, the investigation continues on the 2G Sim hack part of the iPhone 3G.
This user requests the RebelSim producers to provide samples if possible, though Mattmartincouk mentions that they don't...
Okay summary of Yessim Testing at this stage. 2G operations only, focusing on calls and SMS.
O2 PAYG with Yessim
