Base on your post, your daughter has restore with Itunes which it has 5.0.1 baseband 04.11 on it. With this current firmware & baseband, you can not unlock it at all, this is including Gevy sim.

you also lost the ability to downgrade firmware and of course baseband is not down gradable. You are sol for a while. Somebody deserves a grounding! :eek:
