I guess, that IOS 4.3.3 can not support any more any updates or new tweaks showing up in Cydia. It's just to old. Time for you to upgrade your IOS.

Hi, if you have iFile installed you may be able to re-install the dpkg deb from Saurik.

Hi, software unlock ultrasnow depends on you having baseband 01.59.00. (Check iPhone settings, general, about) You may find if you check Cydia, Home page, TSS Center, that you have some iOS 4 or 5 blobs. If you do, you could restore to that iOS and have an untethered jailbreak. You should have at least your 4.3.3 blobs there so you could restore to the same iOS.
Also check the Gavey Sim website for compatible iOS/modem baseband options.

If you do upgrade to say iOS5.1.1 (presuming you have the Cydia blobs) you must already have baseband 4.10.01 and MUST NOT upgrade your baseband during the restore process. Both Redsnow and iFaith have options for this.

Gevey card works with all IOS updates, 6.1.3 included, provided your BB stays on max. 4.10. So you need to upgrade and preserve BB.
For that you need Snowbreeze 2.9.14. At the same time, Snowbreeze will also jailbreak your phone, but remember, on 6.1.3, it's only tethered. If there are words you don't understand, use google, beleive me, the best friend we have
Here is one useful link:

Just curious, why don't you try to permanently unlock your phone?

Hi, Seeing as you are already jail broken on iOS4.3.3, then Cydia should already have uploaded your 4.3.3 blobs and probably more?
