    Sorry if this has been answered elsewhere, but really require an answer ASAP!

    I have an Iphone 4s one O2, i used it to activate the iphone.
    This then allowed me to use absinthe 2.0.4. The jailbreak was successfull I found cydia worked.
    I wanted to use another sim card, once a different sim card is inserted, the phone reboots and requires activation again?
    I thought once it was jailbroken i could use any sim?

    Is there any more steps i require?

    Many thanks For the Help

    Jailbreaking is not unlocking.
    They are different operations.

    Best unlock is an IMEI unlock, check your carrier for unlock options or a grey market dealer.

    How very disappointing lol.
    Is there any solutions on the internet?
    I have come across links for redsnow and other software, whilst looking into it!
    Is that the path i need to go down, changing the baseband?

    check your carrier as recommended you can not downgrade your baseband. I highly recommend you read up on jailbreaking and unlocking it only benefits yo.
    check here about unlocking. http://jailbreak-me.info/

    I just told you jailbreak tools (like Redsn0w) do not unlock.
    Besides, anyone selling them is a scammer since they are all free from hackers.

    You cannot change the baseband on your phone.

    If you read the final sentence of my original post, I already gave you what you need to pursue.
