Why are there so many sites saying 3GS 3.1.3 is unlockable
Alright I'm new here and this is the most pro iphone only site I could find (Through crackberry which I've been using for a while). Basically I'm trading my bb with a iPhone 3GS.
The iPhone runs on 3.1.3 AT&T and I googled a lot of places and many sites do show that 3GS 3.1.3 is possible to be unlocked. Like this;
Is all this bs? Also what's all this baseband stuff?

I would not trust all those sites. Most of the time they want you to pay for jailbreaks/unlocks. Other times they are old. The current situation is:
3.1.3 can be Jailbroken. A Jailbroken iPhone means you can install non-Apple approved apps and other functionality missing from the stock iPhone. Keep in mind this "voids" your warranty.
Unlocking is a different matter. In order to use the iPhone on another network, it needs to be unlocked. However, the newest Baseband is 05.12.01 with bootloader 06.04. At this time, that cannot be unlocked. You can check to see what version you have, but if the phone is new it will be too late.

The 3G[s] can be unlocked on 3.1.3, but you need a custom firmware created by either PwnageTool for Mac or sn0wbreeze for PC.
I AM running a 3G[s] unlocked on 3.1.3, butthere are lots of factors - for example, this will only work on 3G[s]'s with the OLD bootrom (untethered jailbreak), the new ones are SOL.
All in all, the processes I used were more complicated and aren't the "average" jailbreak, but it is possible. It's just rare is all.
