    So, I just bought a used iPhone 4 and when I try turning on iMessage it asks for the email password of the person I bought it from. I signed into the app store using my apple ID but i still can't sign into iMessage. What do I do?

    Would that affect the baseband cause the phone is unlocked with a preserved baseband?

    Yes it would since you would have to update to stock 5.0.1

    Love the answer you were given,

    You need a custom restore to preserve the baseband

    Check the email for the address you just logged into. You will have an email there with a link to go to to 'validate' or verify that email address then it should work. I just did this not 20 minutes ago on my own phone.
