Unlocked and Jb on 3.1.2
Been happily Jb and unlocked now since getting my iphone 3gs back in November. I'm just curious though about two things.
1) I am currently unlocked via snow and using my PAYG voda uk sim in myphone. I do have a few signal problems but i can live with that...I am hoping that orange (my original iphone provider) will allow me to officially unlock my iphone for £20 at the end of this month.
2) Now if they will unlock it (which they said they would) then will I still be able to use my voda sim if its unlocked officially and then i can upgrade to 3.1.3 or will my phone remain locked to orange if i uprade my firmware after orange unlock it officially?

Balsy Megan, for the past couple of days you've been giving out inaccurate advice, but I just thought it was a few things. It's not. You have A LOT of reading to do, hun.
She is getting her carrier to OFFICIALLY UNLOCK her. Through iTunes. She can upgrade to whatever OS she feels like, and her phone will ALWAYS be unlocked. No matter what.
There's some possible good news.
One man on these forums was jailbroken AND unlocked on O2.
iTunes officially unlocked him, and 1) He kept his jailbreak just fine. And 2) SOMEHOW, by iTunes officially unlocking him, his iPhone went from a tethered jailbreak (on the 3G[s]) to an UNTETHERED jailbreak.
So yes, you'll be able to continue using your phone unlocked.

secondly from what luciver just said, its possible i may not be stuck with a tethered jb...whooo hooo!!! I can live with the tethered jb for now..but the prospect of an UNTETHERED...Hmmm now that sounds good. I was not looking forward to having to take my laptop away on holiday with me....

Well, you'll be officially unlocked, forever, so if you upgraded to 3.1.3, you wouldn't be able to jailbreak until a proper tool was released that can successfully accomplish that jailbreak.
Just call your carrier and try to get details about wether or not they can/will officially unlock you.
Sometimes, they may charge, but not much. It's all up to the carrier, I guess.
