    hello everyone sorry im a little new to this but my gf has a iphone 4 jailbroken and unlock with software 4.1x on SIMPLE MOBILE. data works fine but imessage doesnt activaste nor does facetime. so i was wondering if i updated it to 6.01 if that will help either that or 5.0x serieis. ... if so i heard i would have to preserve the baseband. can anyone give me some help on this?

    Do you have SHSH/blobs for 5.x or manually saved SHSH's for 6.0-6.1.2?

    Than you can restore to those, if you don't have SHSH's you can't upgrade.

    Does she need an unlock as well? if not you can restore without preserving the BB, still need the blobs though.

    You can try to deactivate with SAM (from Cydia) to try to restore the push notifications. 4.x

    Getting iMessage and FaceTime activated on unofficial carriers is troublesome because those carriers misread the activation code sent by phone as an international SMS.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    If its locked to AT&T you can purchase an IMEI unlock for it.
    Then restore to the latest firmware and once its officially unlocked everything like imessage and facetime should work fine.
