Apple is Blocking the SAM Unlock, Backup Your Unlock Tickets!

Apple is Blocking the SAM Unlock, Backup Your Unlock Tickets!

Posted April 27, 2012 at 12:14am by iClarified
Apple is currently in the process of blocking the SAM unlock, reports MuscleNerd. If you need to unlock a SIM or backup your unlock ticket do it now!

Looks like Apple's currently fixing their activation servers. But the good news is that previous tickets gotten via SAM trick still work.

what it boils down to is an incorrect assumption on the part of the ticket server, which is why it was so quick to fix


for the next few hours, trying SAM on new SIMs will probably be hit or miss, but eventually it will be all "miss"

Maybe a Dumb question... but why Apple blocked the SAM unlock, I mean this could easily help them sell more iPhones. are they afraid that the authorized carriers might sue him?

You are correct. It is a dumb question. You don't think that this has been asked before?

Uk networks unlock their iphones for £20 if on prepay or free if on contract. i really cant see why that is so expensive. Here in the uk we are pretty lucky seeing as every carrier sells the iphone

its simple, don't use the latest iPhone if you cant afford it. just use iPhone 3g or 3gs. don't buy something or want to have something that you can't afford it.

Exactly. If you can't afford it, then don't buy and for sure don't complain about it.

Here's the thing. SAM is not working and he REALLY wants to use SAM. I have an idea! Try calling up Apple and asking for Tim Cook. When he picks up, and if he does, tell him to stop doing whatever he has asked his team on doing with the activation servers and let your SAM unlock go through. Once done, call him again, thank him and request him to proceed with whatever he was doing. Now, stand up, wave, salute your phone and call yourself a Hero! This method definitely works.

I'm on AT&T ..I just tried my iphone4S to unlock it just for fun..worked great,, So I heard apple was blockinb SAM since ive Saved mine.so I inserted my Tmobile worked then it says no sim..the phone has rebooted then it says activation required .. Of course I inseted my att SIM card ...now my Itunes wont recognize my AT&T SIM card I cant even activate my own legit Iphone4S with my own sim card... It says NO SIM CARD Installed ,what do I need to do ? I dont want to restore my iphone4S im on 5.0 been happy with it..like an idiot I didnt even need an unlock I think if I could succeed to deactivate with a redsnow it will work.. But searched everywhere Its only available for the 3gs Any help will be great..otherwise Im going just restore it... Also does anyone know if you could downgrade an IPHONE4S with snowbreeze from 5.1 to 5.0 OR 5.0.1? .

I cant jailbreak it again ..its an Iphone4S I tried to rejailbreak it again with absinte it says this devices is already jailbroken.. I cant believe this I didnt even need an unlock phone I laready have an Iphone4S att locked it for me .. Which I am currently using..I am thinking to take it to apple store hopefully they can exchange it for me for a 5.0.1 ..or I can keep it until the 5.1 jailbreak comes out Thats why we need a 5.1 jailbreak... I wish we can purchase a jailbreak everytime a firmware is updated

Finally got tired of it..the only way to fix it ..is to restore it .. I lost my jailbreak over a stupid Unlock. Here is the funny thing when I restored I inserted a T-mobile Sim card it says Activation required..SIM Not Valid I get this Message Only Compatibe Sim Cards from supported carrier may be used to activate iPhone.. Does this mean my iPhone is officially Unlocked ? Now I have a unjailbroken Iphone4S a stupid and stupid..I am kicking my self in the Ass . Luckly I have another 4s unlocked I haven't been using jailbroken I am currently using Putting this Iphone4S in the closet until POD2 releases a jailbreak Please hurry

looooool ALL you once it's blocked FORGET IT, no matter what saved or not that's it, it's not going to work.... Like saved SHSH it's only for cydia... Apple stopped signing 5.0.1 that means you can't even get back on it and yet dev team says YES YOU CAN... So like all you that believed them about SAM you been .... Glad I stayed on ultrasn0w.... Also dev team said they goin to upgrade ultrasn0w when 5.1 came out but yet hmmmmmm...

m_thoroughbred - April 28, 2012 at 12:14am
I downgraded from 5.1 to 5.0.1 yesterday using my shsh blobs and stitching it with a custom firmware created with redsnow so I don't know what you're taking about

I think all this is just commercial tactic, many people when they heard that is possible to unlock all baseband, they have update their baseband, even they can unlock before with ultrasnow or old gevey sim, and now they stopped signing ticket to unlock it, poor people how didnt save their ticket, now they must buy a new Gevey sim, this is why all this action, damm it

Well i had unlocked my Iphone 4 with SAM but since push wasn't working, i cleared push this morning. Surprise surprise, it wouldn't activate after that. I tried the whole process from the top, installed and reinstalled SAM and still nothing. And i'm assuming there's no way to save my ticket now... oh well...
