Can you send and receive calls at the moment using your sim card.. If you can and you are using iPhone 4 then you don't need to worry about activation or unlocks. Because base band 3.xx is 4.2.1 iPhone 4 and there is no unlock for it so you are probably using a sim card that can activate on the iPhone... Just make sure you can make calls on it..

Good luck~ w11z

You can run greenpois0n over your tethered jailbreak and you'll have no need to activate.

If you perform a restore, just jailbreak using redsn0w (since it hacktivates) and then use greenpois0n to untether.

You can actually use Redsnow to activate even after you've run GP. This is from Musclenerd himself.

You mean activate, not untether.
