iPhone is bricked. Could really use some help
Okay guys I've done a search but I don't see the exact problem that I'm having.
I recently unlocked my iPhone to use on T-Mobile now. I went through unlocking
the APN and everything, and the sim card worked just fine. The problem I was
running into was that my Wi-Fi wouldn't work. With or without my sim card.
So I reset my "network settings" without my sim card inside and Wi-Fi worked
fine along with the service. Then today I ran into the same Wi-Fi problem.
Well I reset network settings again with the sim card inside and now my phone
is stuck on the Apple logo. No matter how many times I try to reboot the
phone. I plug it into my USB to restore it and iTunes won't recognize it. I'm
in need of some major help here.
I am jailbroken by the way.
Any help would be appreciated

Every time you reboot you will need to fix the wifi again, BTW you don't need to take your sim out. To get it to boot try holding down the home and power button until it comes up in iTunes.
reset "network settings" without the sim card in it. Worked after that. After I
turned it off and didn't use it for a couple of days the sim card worked just
fine for voice and data, but the Wi-Fi wouldn't turn on again. So I reset network
settings again while the sim card was in it and that's when I was stuck on
the Apple logo. That's the only thing I know that I did different that time.

Force it into recovery mode by holding the powerful and home buttons or just let the battery die and restore with iTunes.
If you're using a newer 3Gs then you require a tethered jailbreak so every time the phone is powered off then you need to connect it and run RC3
Since I switch sims between my iPhone and Blackberry I just have one added
step to switching. Before I insert the sim card I make sure I reset network
settings on my iPhone and then insert the sim card and then I'm good to go.
I just hate that on a reboot or turning off the phone that the Wi-Fi turns off
and I have to do it again. But what can ya do.
