    Hello, try restoring to an earlier firmware. Boot neuter should keep your unlock. You can visit the iclarified website, they have a lot of info on that.

    If you need to have it unlocked why would you upgrade to the latest firmware from iTunes? the baseband is not unlockable so next time you should research it first. If it's a 2G you don't need to use Bootneuter the baseband wont upgrade I have one I know from experience. You mention using pwnage tool so just cook up a custom 3.1.3 ipsw and put the iPhone into DFU mode. Then open iTunes and hold Option + Restore and point to the ipsw. When you're making the ipsw remember to click Activate Phone this will allow it to activate with a different SIM. You can find the instructions to unlock on the iClarified site mentioned.
