    Tell us the exact steps you followed and where it went wrong.

    Did you have itunes up to date and running in the background?

    Just do an update to the Iphone via Itunes (if you are factory unlocked). Make sure you have the latest version of Itunes also... I can't think of something else...

    I just jailbreaked my iPhone 4 it will not make calls thru my ATT micro cell unit now. Turn of the 3G micro cell and it makes calls fine. Anyone else had this problem??

    Ok micro cell is working now? Kinda odd. I reset the unit and phone sevral times. Also did network reset on iPhone.

    Restore the phone.

    These are the steps I did on my first and only try to jb with Limera1n with my iP4 on 4.1.

    1) I shift+restored to stock 4.1 (i preserved by baseband with TU just in case I need to unlock in the future when going out of the states)
    2) I then did not restore from back up or set up as new yet, I just activated thru iTunes.
    3) I then ran Limera1n on it
    4) phone rebooted and i got the white blank Limera1n icon
    5) clicked on it and installed Cydia.
    6) then went back into limera1n and selected uninstall.
    7) resprang phone again then I hooked it back up into iTunes and restored from back up.

    Everything was back to normal with Cydia.

    Edit: I used beta 4 limera1n.

    If you restore from back up, no you won't lose contacts or photos.

    You're not retarded. It's ok to not know, these things can be complicated.

    If you don't have an iP4 you can't accomplish preserving your baseband to maintain unlockability anyway.

    If you do have an iPhone 4, there's a program called TinyUmbrella (TU) that has TSS server to allow iP4 users to upgrade to 4.1 stock without upgrading their basebands (if the baseband is upgraded, the unlock is lost).
