How to fix some mysterious problems.

hi there.

I purchased a pre-owned iphone 4 a while ago, and now i am wanting to do an untethered jailbreak on it. I am currently on ios6.0.1 and planning to upgrade it to 6.1 soon.

I had tried doing a tethered jailbreak myself but it didnt work. my baseband is 4.12.02.

the model number on the back says A1387, which is apparently the model number for the iphone 4s.
The only possible explanations for this are if the screen was smashed and replaced with a 4s panel, or that the person who used it before me had done a botched jailbreak and put on iphone 4 firmware!

thoughts? i am rather stuck.
