    Th phone is in set-up phase -- what language, region etc. and then tells me I need to put in the original Sim -- so nowhere near seeing apps.
    Stuck at activation screen?

    Ok, that is the right one. Are you stucked at activation screen ? Do you have a valid sim to activate it ?

    I think you can run redsn0w from the welcome wizard screen to hacktivate and jailbreak at 5.1.1

    No valid Sim. I put it in recovery mode and am now trying to back up an unlocked version of six months ago. I hope that works.

    Don't understand what you are saying..

    Your problem now is getting stucked at activation screen without an official sim to trigger it.

    Don't think that's going to work. The phone needs to be hacktivated because you don't have the original Carrier sim.

    no no, you dont seem to understand the process of how this works....

    you "cannot" restore back to an "unlocked" state

    you can "ONLY" restore your settings, apps, contacts, photos, sms but you "CANNOT" restore back to an "unlockable" phone

    if a phone is unlocked by the phone provider, it is "PERMANENTLY" unlock, so when you restore, it will "always" be unlocked..

    if you used ultrasn0w for the unlock, you "HAVE" to reinstall it from Cydia "in order" for the phone to be unlocked again when you're done restoring

    does that make sense?

    It just came back with the original iPad baseboard and custom 5.1.1 installed. I'm unlocking now with Ultrasn0w. It just unlocked.
    Thanks for everyone's help -- really appreciated.
    Upgrading these phones is way too stressful!!

    you just need to have more experience with it

    how did you bypass the activation screen?

    By putting into recovery mode, hooking up to iTunes and restoring from an Unlocked backup of six months ago.
    Thanks for all your help!
