    Hi Guys

    It's a long story but please try and help me :)

    my brother bought me iPhone 4 in the east and it was locked to at&t for the past 2 years (used ultrasn0w with lower baseband)
    yesterday i paid someone in ebay and got the unlock on itunes (with the message and all).

    today i deleted my ultrasn0w and deactivated the device by using redsn0w.
    the message of the unlock pop up in the itunes and now i'm without ultrasn0w (for what i know) or any other unlock helper and i can see my carrier !
    It has low signal but i can communicate with calls. some things still dosen't work right like whatsapp push.

    So i decided i want to restore my phone and check if it's all alright.

    I took iOS 5.0.1 and 5.1.1 ipsw and preserved the baseband with redsnow. I am unable to restore my iphone to custom IPSW right now because of errors like 1601 1602.

    I also tried iReb to help me get it into DFU mode but the itunes stuck at "verifying with apple"

    Any suggestions on how to check it all works ? I don't trust it right now and i don't want to have an iPod of my iPhone 4.

    The unlock should be permanent, so no need to preserve baseband anymore. Try just restoring straight from apple/iTunes.

    Well I took the risk and it works !

    i want to recommend unlockfusion. its 8$ on ebay and you get unlock in less than 6hrs (they say 24hrs).
