    Hi, i recenly bought a jailbroken at&t iphone 4 ios 5.0.1 from my friend, i accidently updated it to 5.1 and now im stuck in " please insert sim card "
    i dont have any sim card & i want to activate it & i was wondering if i can take the phone to the h2o store and they'll give me a sim card to activate it and everything will be fine? Or should i downgrade it to 5.0.1 ? What should i do? Any suggestion? Please help. Thanks

    Currently there is no unlock for that baseband,downgrading to 5.01 doesn't help, the unlockable BB stays, unfortunately you created a very expensive 'iPod'

    Try selling it to someone with an AT&T contract

    no its locked to AT&T

    on the old setup i guess ultrasn0w was installed with a BB of 1.59.0
    that can unlock to other carriers.

    Ultrasn0w doesn't work on any higher IP4 BB

    You'll have to wait for an hardware unlock or sell it, i suggest the latter, some people have been waiting for a 4.11.08 BB unlock solution for 6 months with no ETA known.

    This is what i found on the H2O website:
    needs to jailbroken and unlocked with ultrasn0w

    Although some other threat say you can access H2O on AT&T locked phone, better give them a call
