Gevey with BTC SIM finally works.
Josh 201604 KWP
Trying to make a foreign sim work in my iphone. The Gevey worked. The sim worked. The combination in my phone didn't work the first 20 tries.

Getting it to work was a matter of fine details, semantics, not just the normal instructions.

I now have a BTC (Bahamas Telelphoen Company) SIM in my phone, happily giving me a local number.

Clarified Instructions:
* Uninstall the Furiousmod app if you tried it. It sometimes blocks the [accept] screen.
* Power off, then install the Gevey and trimmed microsim.
* Power on, then wait. Do not unlock phone's keypad.
* Gevey acceptance screen comes up. Wait 10 seconds.
* Press accept, then unlock keycode to get in.
* Go to phone and dial 112. Count to 2, then [end].
* If the "Call Ended" doesn't come up in 1-2 seconds, then power off and retry.
* If it shows SIM Failed before you set airplane mode, power off and retry.
* Set airplane mode and wait until it says SIM Failed.
* Turn off airplane mode, and click OK to SIM Failed.
* Wait 20 seconds, and service should come online.
* If it reverts to "No Service", then power off and retry.
* Gevey Supreme still needs 112 on every reboot while in the Bahamas.
