How to fix some mysterious problems.

I own an iPhone 3GS iOS 5.1.1 (9B206) Serial: 87052BP9EDG bb: 05.13.04 which was previously jailbroken and unlocked by me through the help of good people on this website about 2 years ago. I intend to upgrade it to iOS 6.1.6 to enable me install latest versions of my Apps as some of them are requesting that I update in order to continue using them. Kindly guide me on how to successfully upgrade without losing jailbreak and unlock or the ability to jailbreak untethered and unlock afterwards. Thank you in anticipation of your usual prompt response.

items needed: 6.0 ipsw, redsn0w 15b3, p0sixpwn, an att sim (or sim from the carrier its locked too, dead or alive)

update in itunes (will update baseband too)
use redsn0w (pointing at the 6.0 ipsw to flash ipad baseband, then downgrade baseband)
use posixpwn to jailbreak.
in cydia, install ultrasn0w

Thanks for your swift response. However, I'd like to clarify further that I intend to upgrade to 6.1.6, I can't even remember the network it was locked to as I've been using it with a different network here in my country since I got it jailbroken and unlocked 2 years ago. Kindly consider this in the solution being proffered. Thank you
