How to fix some mysterious problems.

Can someone please help me...? I have an Iphone 3GS running on iOS 5.1.1 with baseband 05.13.04. I've jailbreaked it with the PWNAGE tool to preserve my baseband and unlocked it with ultrasnow (Original carrier shoud be Bouygues Telecom France, I've contact them if they will unlock my phone but they don't answer my e-mails). Now I am trying for several months to fix my push notifications, but it still doesn't work.

I've installed SAM but I only see the button Restore Activation in the Utilities and when I try to restore I get the message: Activation reports Failed: Unable to fetch activation record. Is there anyway for me to fix my push notifications?

Yeah! At the first time it didn't work but I kept trying and it worked! Now I have my pushnotifications working.

Thanks to Justinred!

I have the same problem and read that SAM doesn't work anymore, unless you have previously saved the certificate or something like that? And it doesn't work for me, I've tried a few times. I have also read elsewhere that the only way to fix push notification is by purchasing Pushfix. Can anyone please confirm this? Thanks!

SAM unlock and SAM activation are different. Explained here.
