Evasi0n is an Jailbreak for all iPhones, iPad’s, iPod Touch’s, iPad Mini’s and iPhones running iOS 6.0 and above)

It is not know 100% yet when it will be released but it is estimated it will be released within the next 24 Hours. Evasi0n will be available for Windows, Mac and Linux. It it NOT a Carrier unlock.

They suggest you Make sure you have backed up your iPhone via iTunes/iCloud and disable your lock code before you use evasi0n.

As I want more accurate APN settings for every carrier in the world (The list of settings is pretty big now) I need *YOUR* help :-).

I have around 900 Carriers (and there are a lot more) around the world but quite a number of them have some settings missing and I want to get the correct settings.

The best people to get correct information from is the people actually in the country the carriers are in ,or even better – straight from the carriers themselves.

So if you want to help look up your carrier from http://www.unlockit.co.nz/mobilesettings . If the settings look incorrect or not there, find the setting (Ask the mobile carrier or look up on the net if you can find it) and email me (admin@unlockit.co.nz) and I can update the list.

A Template on what I need is at http://www.unlockit.co.nz/mobilesettings/settings.php .

Please like the page with the settings on it and share with everyone on the net 🙂

Kogan Mobile – Enabling iMessage/Facetime

Posted 22 CommentsPosted in Australia

I have been emailed this from a Kogan Mobile User on how to enable iMessage/Facetime. This is needed (at the moment) as the default SMSC will not allow the iMessage activation message to go thru on the iPhone.

1. Disable iMessage under Settings/Messages
2. Dial *#5005*7672# and make a note of what the SMSC is set to at the moment
3. Dial **5005*7672*+61418706700# to set Telstra’s SMSC
4. Dial *#5005*7672# to make sure it changed.
5. Enable iMessage under Settings/Messages
6. Dial **5005*7672*thenumberyouwrotedowninstep2# (or you won’t be able to send)
6. Reboot phone (If needed)

Kogan Mobile Australia

Posted 4 CommentsPosted in Australia

A new carrier has arrived in Australia just recently. They are known as Kogan Mobile (http:// http://www.koganmobile.com.au) . They are a MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator) via Telstra thus the iPhone just sets the Telstra Mobile Settings when you use one of their sims (which are incorrect for Kogan Mobile).

I have added a Profile to Enable Data but MMS Settings are not possible to set.

It also seems that the iMessage/Facetime activation number does not work via Kogan Mobile so it is not possible to activate FaceTime/iMessage.

Update: I have been told (it may not work with all iPhones/versions of software) you can dial ” *5005*86*141# ” and this will allow the voice mail button to work (if you have voicemail enabled). This makes the iPhone dial 141 for voicemail instead of the default 101 which Telstra use.

Sim Swap for MMS – iOS6 Version – Straighttalk

Posted 112 CommentsPosted in mms, straight talk, unlockit

The below information has been sent in by a number of people in different versions so please let me know if there are anything I have missed/said wrong. I am not in the USA, don’t have an AT&T iPhone and don’t have a Straighttalk sim for testing any of this.

Please let me know if any changes have to be made to the instructions or any alternative instructions which you know work. What Type of iPhone you have might help as well (3GS,4,4S or 5) as these might only work with a certain model of iPhone.

This is similar to the old Sim Swap method some people used to use in iOS 5.1.1. Make sure you have the unlockit.co.nz Straighttalk profile installed first ( Go to http://www.unlockit.co.nz from your iPhone and follow your Nose) as this is the only way to set the Data Proxy needed (or some websites won’t work I have been told)

1. Close all opened apps
2. Place T-Mobile sim in iPhone
3. Open Settings, General, Cellular, Data Network
4. When Data Network Appears ( the screen will move back to Cellular)
5. Swap T-Mobile Sim to Straight Talk Sim
6. Wait for the “NO SIM” splash to disappear
7. Press Cellular again and Data Network should still be there.
8. Go to Settings and make sure the information below is entered.

Cellular Data

APN: att.mvno


APN: att.mvno
MMSC: http://mmsc.cingular.com
MMS Proxy:
MMS Max Size: 1048576
MMS UA Prof URL: http://www.apple.com/mms/uaprof.rdf

9. Press Cellular to Exit.
10. A restart of the iPhone may be needed. ( Hold down Top Button, slide to Power off and then start again with Top Button)

Will Unlockit.co.nz work with an iPhone 5 and allow me to change the APN Data Settings and what about MMS?

Posted 26 CommentsPosted in unlockit

So I don’t have to answer the same thing to all the people who have asked…

Will www.unlockit.co.nz work with an iPhone 5?

The Answer is:


How can I get MMS Working..?

Since I posted that the SIM Swap Method doesn’t work on an iOS6 I’ve had a number of emails saying it does work but with a couple of changes in the way you do it.

If anyone can supply a Working way please let me know and I’ll put a post about it..
