Assuming you have the iPad baseband and were unlocked with Ultrasn0w:

Get redsn0w

Download the iOS 6.0 ipsw (not 6.0.1) if you don't already have it

Connect the iPhone to USB
Open redsn0w (run as administrator if using Windows)
Click Extras -> Select ipsw
Choose the 6.0 (not 6.0.1) ipsw
Click Back
Click Jailbreak
Follow the DFU instructions
Select "Install iPad baseband" and "Install cydia"
When that completes, close redsn0w

Open redsn0w (run as administrator if using Windows)
Click Extras -> Select ipsw
Choose the 6.0 (not 6.0.1) ipsw
Click Back
Click Jailbreak
Follow the DFU instructions
Select ONLY "Downgrade from iPad baseband"
When that completes, close redsn0w

Open redsn0w (run as administrator if using Windows)
Click Extras -> Select ipsw
Choose the 6.0 (not 6.0.1) ipsw
Click Back
Click Just boot
Place iPhone in DFU
Close redsn0w when it completes

Open cydia and let it complete loading
Tap Manage -> Sources -> Edit -> Add
Add http://repo.iparelhos.com
Tap search, find and install ultrasn0w and ultrasn0w fixer for iOS 6
Reboot iPhone (power off/on if it doesn't reboot automatically)

Open redsn0w (run as administrator if using Windows)
Click Extras -> Select ipsw
Choose the 6.0 (not 6.0.1) ipsw
Click Back
Click Just boot
Place iPhone in DFU
Close redsn0w when it completes

Here's an unlocking tutorial with pictures, covering some of the process.
