    un-jailbreak it and see if the problem continues.

    There have been rumors floating around that T-Mobile is changing or possibly canceling plans for iPhones on their network.

    That may not be the cause of your problem, but if the sim works fine in other devices, I would have to think it is a physical issue with the phone or the network is not registering the phone.

    Here is a link. Not sure if this is related or not, to your situation.

    i have the actual tmobile service not the pre-paid service sidekick. and also if i unjailbreak it then how am i supposed to know if the gsm works or not without a sim card? without the proper att sim card in there (which i don't have) regardless it will say no sim

    Could it be possible that some app on the phone may have disabled the unlock?

    not possible because i was talking on the phone the night before and then slept and 5 hours later after waking up that's when i noticed it said no service. i didn't download any apps from app store or cydia in the last 3 days before this happened. i'm going to try and downgrade back to 2.2.1 and see if that works and then use a different software to unlock to 3.0, given that the downgrade fixes the gsm problem.
