    Default 3gs unlock impossible?

    I have a 3gs that ive had since i got my iphone 4, but wanted to unlock it for a friend. 5.0 9a334 does not have a working untethered jailbreak, so i tried to update to 5.0.1 to no avail. 5.1 to no avail. 5.1.1 to no avail. This iphone was never jailbroken and i couldnt even restore it back to factory on 5.0 in order to try to update from there. I am not new to jailbreaking, as i tried ireb, snowbreeze custom ipsw's, and redsnows pwned DFU and ive had error 3194, then 1602, 1601, 11. This is seriously starting to bug me because i dont want to update to 6.0.1 yet because there isnt a jailbreak yet. anyone have any suggestions?

    Maybe so, but clearly you haven't done enough research since your post has several pieces of incomplete/incorrect info. I won't go into them just point out the one you should be concerned with:

    iPhone 4 and 3GS will always have a tethered jailbreak for every software revision, since their exploit is hardware. Bottom line is - there is a jailbreak for 6.0.1.
    If you have jailbreak woes, you can iMessage me at iDonev@me.com. I'll try to help (provided I have time to spare).

    I can IMEI Unlock it. If it's an AT&T, I can do it for 30 $. PM me or send me a mail techunlockingqc@gmail.com

    If all you want to do is unlock the device, then no jailbreak is needed. You can purchase a permanent unlock online for less the $10 and never have to worry about updating to a new OS and losing unlock. Try unlock fusion, a lot of positive results and NOT a scam.

    Use a 3rd party unlocking service. It's less then $5 on eBay.

    Also, if it's an AT&T phone out of contract, just call them. They unlock them for free now.

    Factory unlock would be a lot safer.

    We cannot rely on unlocking a mobile through softwares ,I unlocked my iPhone 3GS using the remote unlocking service from Mobile-unlocker.com.
