    Your baseband is not unlockable. If you want to unlock, then you have to update your baseband to ipad baseband which will break your GPS function.

    That is correct, it will not give you the exact location.

    You are better off buying an iphone that has unlockable baseband or a factory unlock.

    What firmware are you at now , 4.1 ?

    Redsn0w RC6, choose option install cydia first, then run redsn0w again and choose ipad baseband.

    Unlock with Ultrasn0w from Cydai after you have installed ipad baseband.
