Run redsn0w 11b4 to jailbreak it with no sim card in it, then use rocky racoon to untether it in cydia

Well then you can jailbreak it via sn0wbreeze 2.9.5 and the choose the "hacktivate" option it includes. Hope I helped. Download from here: It supports iPhone 4 with 9B208 build.

Redsn0w currently doesn't work with the new iPhone 4 iOS 5.1.1 that was released. Sn0wbreeze will hactivate the device but it requires a restore. Download sn0wbreeze and use that.
