IMPORTANT:
You should perform the unlock procedure and this backup procedure for every SIM you want to use with your iPhone.

Alternatively, if you do not want to use iFile, you can simply SSH into the directory above and copy that file over to your computer. Be sure to save it in a safe place! If you are not sure on how to SSH, we have a [Windows] tutorial and a [Mac] tutorial.

For activating each sim card the iPhone uses the folder ( LOCKDOWN ) so once you unlock the sim rename the folder lockdown to that sim. If you don't rename the lockdown folder it gets written over. After your done the same process to each sim there should be folders with the names of each sim, which ever sim you want to use you have to rename that folder back to lockdown for the iPhone to read it. You can only have one folder at a time called lockdown. This is the reason for saving the tickets so you can easily switch sims and they are activated.

u didn't get a ticket to save, the GIEVEY ULTRA S works in a way that it had to be set once, and after that, u don't have to redo the settings again, I guess that what happened is that the settings is already saved on ur iPhone so that u didn't need the GIEVEY chip again, because it has already done it's job and saved it to ur iPhone. That's my guessing :)
