    Need help here guys, I have an iphone 4 that was on 5.0.1 with 1.59.00 baseband. I preserved the baseband with redsn0w following these steps:

    redsn0w -> extras -> even more -> restore -> choose iOS 6.1 and tell it not to update baseband.
    redsn0w -> extras-> select IPSW -> choose 6.0, new bootrom (I didn't exactly know what new bootrom meant, it accepted the 6.0 firmware I had downloaded but not 6.0.1 so I figure i did this correctly...)
    Enter DFU mode
    redsn0w -> extras -> Recovery fix
    Start phone with original carrier SIM (i have a spare at&t sim)
    cydia -> install ultrasn0w

    I installed ultrasn0w and I dont think I was getting service, so I installed the ultrasn0w fixer from http://repo.iparelhos.com. Now I get 1 bar and it does say t-mobile when I restart it, but then it quickly loses service. I tested it when it had 1 bar and I managed to connect to my voicemail. I've been googling and I found that you should install the ultrasn0w fix before ultrasn0w, so I uninstalled both and did it the proper way but I'm still facing the same issue.

    Any help?!

    awesome. I went ahead and did the payment already, hopefully I can use the phone by tomorrow! so once it's imei unlocked is that the same as it being factory unlocked?

    That's because you still have 1.59 baseband. Restore to 6.1 so that your baseband is updated and that will fix your 1 bar issue.
