Hey guys, sorry if this has been asked before, I've searched but havent found anything.
I have an iPhone 3g, 4.2.1. 6.15.0.00 BB.
I am trying to unlock to fix the push and battery issue. I restored my phone, and when I d/l SAM, there is no option to "deactivate iPhone", just "deactivate iPhone (clear push)" in utilities.
Curious as to how I can fix this. SAM is version 1-11-0-1 or something. I looked at pics and older versions with the deactivate option was something like 1-3-0 or something.

i don't know much about SAM, i don't unlock.
I DO know redsn0w 0.9.6rc16 has a deactivate option however.
hope that helps.

As for SAM... yes, it is in the utilities section. I think it actually says deactivate will clear push sessions and to reactivate in itunes which should refresh push cert's. if you have an original ATT sim, use it to activate and then you can actually uninstall SAM. If not use SAM to provide the activation for itunes. you can then d/l push checker from cydia to test push (part of pushfix, but you do not need to buy pushfix, just use the free push checker). some apps may need to be reinstalled after fixing push.

As for the SIM. Does it matter where the phone is from? Because I honestly don't know, for all I know it could be from overseas. Do I just need an official SIM from here? Or would it have to be from where the phone is from? Thanks budddy.
BTW, here is what I mean.
This is my SAM Settings.
And here are the settings from other versions of SAM.
And here is what is under utilities on my phone.

Sorry I don't know how to use SAM+redsn0w but I just wanted to tell you to remove your IMEI from the picture. It's not safe to have that floating around the web.

You're deactivated, make sure SAM is set to on and connect to iTunes, it should change the ActivationState to Wildcard activated, that's where you want to be.
