Please advise.My GC is filed and have an EAD which I never used till date and I have extended my H1 past 6 yrs and my current H1 is valid till Feb 2014.
No, you must wait until I-129 is filed. Many attorney say wait until receipt is issued, but that is not required under AC21

You must wait until the petition is filed. For example, f the attorney files using next day delivery (FedEx) on a Monday then you can start to work on Tuesday.
To be on the safe side, many people are told to wait until you get the USCIS receipt or at the very least the check is cashed by USCIS.
No. The I-129 must be filed before you can start work when transferring H-1Bs.
