Guys, I figure I'd surprise you all by NOT posting some stupid 'error' I'm getting. Lord knows there's plenty of those posts on here. No, I'm looking for some advice...

Guys, I figure I'd surprise you all by NOT posting some stupid 'error' I'm getting. Lord knows there's plenty of those posts on here.
No, I'm looking for some advice really.
I currently have an iPhone 4, 5.0.1 jail broken with Snowbreeze using a custom firmware (01.59.00). The version says 9A405.
I'm getting an iPhone 4S on Wednesday. I'm using AT&T. In retrospect, I chose to preserve my baseband when I upgraded to 5.0.1 via Snowbreeze when I didn't have to. My understanding is that only people who need to UNLOCK their phone should worry about preserving the baseband. I don't have to do that so I sort of screwed up there. My signals have been stuck on 1 bar ever since.
I'm essentially wondering what steps I should take, specifically, to make the transition as smooth as possible. I use Windows 7 and don't mind performing many time consuming steps as long as I get it right. I'm not a newbie and I know the lingo well. I also know there are several different options to jailbreak iPhone 4S. I'm looking to keep as much of my information/settings/jail broken apps and cydia tweaks as possible while also jail breaking the new phone.
One more thing: my wife is getting my old iPhone 4. Therefore I plan on removing the SIM card and using it in the new phone if necessary/possible.
I would REALLY appreciate any information you guys can offer me. Thanks for even reading this.

I just wanted to express my dissatisfaction with this forum.

I've only just spotted this... Do you still require some help? Preserving the baseband is actually a good thing (should you care to get rid of the phone at a later stage, it makes it more desirable).
Because of the way the iPhone 4 & the 4s are different... Your pretty much looking at copying them manually... I believe there might be some program that allows backups of cydia installed software, though I personally haven't found any to be very successful as such.
