How do I downgrade 06.15.00 baseband and to which baseband shall I downgrade in order to be able to upgrade in the near future to iOS 6.0.1 without having any unlocking problems?

I know that downgrading the ipad baseband will give my phone back the gps functionality but other than that, are there any other benefits?

If you do not need to unlock then just restore in iTunes. If you need unlock use the downgrade in redsn0w.

I had to unlock it already via UltraSnow, so if I downgrade with redsnOw is there a specific baseband to install e.g. 5.13.04?

It will install 05.13.04

Ok, so when it install 05.13.04 will I be able to unlock via ultrasnOw when I upgrade to 6.0.1 (untethered) in the near future? Some say that downgrading the baseband it will put the phone on a stock unlockable baseband that has gps functionality. is this the case? Will this put the phone on a stock unlockable baseband? If this is true, how will I unlock? If your baseband is still 6.15.00 after attempting a downgrade you need to reflash 6.15.00 to make it work again. Is this true?

Well if you get 05.13.04 you can unlock using ultrasn0w and use GPS. Less issues too. In future just preserve that baseband before upgrading.
