Same thing has happened to me at least 10 times now. I've tried JBing and it looks like it works (I get the skull on start up) but then it gives me the screen to make either emergency calls or plug it back into iTunes =/

I put my T-Mobile SIM card in after the JB because it asked for it and that's the only one that I have. Should it be in the entire JB process?

Nevermind, I finally realized I was stupid for not fully reading the ReadMe. I was too excited about a 4.2.1 jailbreak to realize that GP doesn't hacktivate. MuscleNerd mentioned in a different thread that you need to Redsn0w (install cydia only) to get past the emergency call screen.
