Please help I have iphone 4 with 4.0.2 baseband 01.59.00.
used limera1n to jailbreak and Ultrasn0w 1.0-1 to unlock

I’ve tried it several times but it’s not working. I keep losing the carrier after about 5-10 minutes, I can make calls in this time but after I lose unlock it shows single bar,
I am not able to make calls. It’s not showing the carrier. (tmobile)

I have to reboot he phone to use another 5-10 minutes than same story.
MY unlock is not permanent, any idea how to fix this?

Should I upgrade to 4.1 with using tiny umbrella in order to keep the baseband 01.59.00. and try to unlock and jailbreak again?
