How to fix some mysterious problems.

I'm running iOS 4.1, on a 3GS, jailbroken and unlocked. I'm trying to upgrade to 4.3.3, but i'm concerned that my phone will be locked again (as it's not factory unlocked) when I do. I could probably jailbreak/unlock 4.3.3, but i'm scared the manual Shift/Restore-custom-IPSW procedure will give an error, then i'll be forced to get iOS 5 from iTunes , which has no unlock now! pls help!

Keep to one thread, it's all relative, and should be kept in one place

If you use a custom IPSW to restore, it will preserve your baseband for the unlock. Use sn0wbreeze or redsn0w 0.9.9b6 to make a custom IPSW and then restore to it. Don't restore to a stock IPSW if you want to preserve your unlock.
