    I currently have a 3GS with 3.1 via iTunes.
    I know I can jailbreak but cannot unlock. Have not jailbreak'd yet.

    A shop in Hong Kong says that by changing/replacing the IC card, my phone will become SIM free. They offered to jailbreak it for me, too.

    Does anyone know if this is true?

    Thank you in advance!

    Get as many details as you can, because if this does work, you're going to be a superhero on these forums.

    Here's to hoping it works.

    Thank you LVCIFER and Ipheuria!

    Ipheuria: The article definitely helped. I'm going to the shop today to bombard them with questions before I hand over my phone, if they answer well.

    LVCIFER: I really hope this works too! If it does, I'll let you guys know.

    the IC card. that sounds like they're un-soldering a chip from the circuitboard. IC generally means integrated circuit.
