Is there any way I can unlock an iPhone 3G with Firmware 4.2.1 and baseband 05.15.04?

I correctly installed Cydia and Ultrasn0w (under iOS 4.1.2 or something like that if I remember right) via JailbreakMe 2.0.

The Unlock seemed to work, but I accidentally updated to 4.2.1.

Is there any way I can fix this?

You should have googled this. First hit I got: osxdaily.com/2010/11/28/… –  cksum Sep 9 '11 at 18:59

You can find out how to jail break and unlock your 3G on mac here. You may need SHSH blobs, but I didn't see where in the tutorial. I think SHSH blobs are only for downgrading.

Is there any other Way than upgrading to 06.15? I thought about that before and neither want to loose my warranty nor my gps. And yes, as far as I know are SHSH blobs for downgrading the Firmware(but not the Baseband). –  H0efi Aug 10 '11 at 12:31
    
You've already jail broken your device, so as far as apple is concerned, you're no longer covered under warranty. Technically, since you're currently on an approved firmware, you would be warrantied as long as the prior jailbreak didn't leave residue files on the device that apple could see. As soon as you jailbreak the phone again, you won't be warrantied. You can't have your cake and eat it too. As far as the baseband, I have no idea if there is another way - probably not. If you're unlocking, you're using an unapproved carrier and not covered anyway. –  skub Aug 10 '11 at 13:09
    
SHSH blobs only used to downgrade the actual OS. They do not downgrade basebands. You cannot revert to an older baseband unless Apple still signs that particular version of the OS. And they have stopped signing 4.1.2 a considerable time ago. –  cksum Sep 9 '11 at 18:58

How about the legitimate way through AT&T:

Not everybody is using AT&T though, especially not outside the US. –  patrix Nov 7 '13 at 6:15
    
Start with the carrier, if the phone is not subsidized and the account is in good standing they will more than likely provide the "Factory Unlock." You can also tell them you are planning to travel overseas and plan to use a local cell provider while traveling. This approach has work for several people I know. AT&T has had so many requests for this they created an on-line form and I was simply using this as an example. –  Schaefer323 Nov 7 '13 at 6:28
    
You could edit your answer to include the relevant information you have provided in the comments. –  M K Nov 7 '13 at 7:11
    
Indeed. You are also answering a question that is over years old. Back in a time when carriers weren't unlocking iPhones at all, under any circumstance. Times they are a changing. –  cksum Jan 16 at 7:01
