That's not really where I was going with that. SAM gives you a authentic activation which in turn fixes your push notifications (which is the source of the battery drain). Having the iPad baseband doesn't really affect anything to do with SAM. In theory a iPhone on 4.3.3 with 5.12 baseband that has been Hactivated should experience the same issues as a Hactivated iPhone on 4.3.3 with the iPad baseband. It's a hactivation issue, not a baseband one.

So true. That's why I use an official AT&T SIM for activation. Apple has been putting the squeeze on jailbreaking/unlocking for a long time. It started with a broken YouTube, then Push, now FaceTime. Not sure if I'm missing anything. All these are related to activation not the iDevice baseband. At times, the solutions have been hit-or-miss but we're keeping up.

^Wow Simon . Think you have enough SIMs?
Question: Wouldn't one SIM handle activations for all authorized networks?

Thanks. It makes sense, but it you've made it very clear.

Thanks for the great guide.
I have a question - would I be able to upgrade to 4.3.3 without being jailbroken in the end (which it seems that's what will happen if I follow this guide entirely), but still preserving baseband? What I plan on doing is to be on 4.3.3 and use jailbreakme.com instead, and preserve my baseband so I can unlock in the future if i need to (i'm NOT dependent on carrier unlock). can anyone comment whether this is a good idea?
i have 3Gs, 4.0.1, 05.13.04

This would only be possible on an iPhone 4. TinyUmbrella preserves the baseband even when using a stock 4.3.3. Unfortunately the other iPhones don't get this luxury.
I will say this, there's no difference if you upgrade to 4.3.3 with a custom fw or if you upgrade with a stock fw and use jailbreakme. You get the same results. Actually some people aren't quite liking jailbreakme for some little bugs. It might just benefit you to do it with SB/PT.

Just followed the steps as in Annie's thread, and everything went smooth. Now I have my iPhone 3gs on iOS 4.3.3 (05.11.07)!You dont REALLY need SAM but if you see your battery draining excessively you may want to give it a go again. Add this to your sources in cydia to get it: repo.bingner.com.
This is his website: Subscriber Artificial ModuleNope. If a iPhone is locked to AT&T then only a AT&T sim will activate it. Same goes for iPhones locked to other carriers
And as usual, , one more question! Is there any way to find out what provider was my iPhone locked, AT&T or ......? And if I use SAM but doesn't help can I still try to find a AT&T sim and to use it to activate?
And again thanks in advance!

Is this the appropriate guide for me, I don't have a official SIM Card ? iClarified - iPhone - How to Hactivation Your iPhone Using Subscriber Artificial Module (SAM)
And which option should I take:
Option #1: Click "Revert Lockdownd to Stock" in Settings>SAM
Option #2: redsn0w for iPhone 3G or 3GS on firmware 4.0 or later
Download redsn0w 0.9.6b6 or later from Dev-Team Blog
Run redsn0w and select the "Deactivate" option
Option #3: my custom stockify program - works on any phone 3.0+ (same as #1)
With SAM and SAMPrefs installed; install openssh and secure shell into your phone. Run "stockify" and it will revert your lockdownd to a stock lockdownd
Reboot your phone

SAM also helped to get unique push certificates - my notifications were flakey in the beginning. I looked into push doctor but his server was overloaded or just ran out of certs, looked into push fix but was not worth the cost for me, but I did use their free push checker to test my push and saw my certs were not unique, although most of my apps were pushing notifications ok, a few were hit or miss. anyway, I used SAM to clear push and then reconnect to itunes to get new certs - took a couple of tries until I got confirmation they were unique with push checker.--
