    I’ve followed these steps but now my phone is asking for activation. It’s locked to AT&T (US) and I’m in the uk.
    Redsnow or Absinthe both ask me to activate it before jailbreaking.
    It’s an iphone 4s.
    (for the unlocking part, I have a GEVEY)

    What should I do?

    My speaker in my iphone 4 suddenly went the other day i think its due to me recently updating to IOS6 software. Anyway i have tried holding down the lock and home button together, i tried cleaning both the charging port and the headphones dock(sound plays perfectly in headphones) and removed dirt and everything. Followed the tips of the q tip and knife also the business card and nothing has worked.Its like as if i have it connected to a docking station all the time but i never had. Ive just finished restoring my iphone and that hasnt worked either. Can anyone else help me???
